Social-Media-Plugins with Shariff

Plugins from social media are used on our website (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr).

You can usually recognize the plugins by the respective social media logos. To protect privacy on our website, we only use these plugins together with the so-called "Shariff" solution. The Shariff component represents social media buttons that comply with data protection. Shariff was developed for the German computer magazine c’t and is published by GitHub, Inc.

This application prevents the plugins integrated on our website from transmitting data to the respective provider as soon as you first enter the page.

Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking on the corresponding button will a direct connection to the server of the provider appear (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign your visit to our website to your user account.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of GitHub can be found at

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage.

This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to create directions. Google Maps is a map service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function can be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you access one of our websites that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Google servers. The map content is transmitted from Google directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:


We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and therefore cannot take over any responsibility for this.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

To ensure that our content is displayed correctly, uniformly and graphically appealing in every browser, this website uses fonts called web fonts, which are provided by Google. This represents a legitimate interest for us within the meaning of Article 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR. The Google Fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google servers.


SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Data deletion

We generally delete personal data when there is no need for further storage. A requirement may exist especially if the data is still required to fulfill contractual services or to be able to check, grant or avert other claims. In the case of statutory retention requirements, deletion is only considered after the respective retention obligation has expired.


Your rights

You always have the right to information free of charge about your stored personal data, their recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correction, withdrawal, deletion or restriction of the processing and use of this data, as well as the right to data portability. Please note, however, that these rights do not apply without restriction, but may, for example, be subject to our own legitimate interests and official regulations.


For further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the contact details above.


You also have the right to launch a complaint at a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the General Data Protection Regulation.
