Cookies are small files containing a string of characters which store certain information in plain text or encrypted form. Cookies are sent by the server to your computer, where they are stored. Their primary purpose is to identify the computer from which a website has been accessed. If you sign on to a website, cookies are used to notify the server of the sign-on and check the permissions for accessing the page. Every cookie has an expiry date, after which it is no longer valid. The user’s path through various pages of the website and even across various websites can be tracked using cookies. By using cookies, we can improve communication between our server and your computer, thus making it easier to use a website. Cookies can be generated by both the website operator and third-party providers. Your browser gives you the option of displaying the cookies which exist on your computer, deleting existing cookies, or configuring the settings so that not all, or no further, cookies are stored. Please be aware that some functions will not work, or will not work properly, if you block cookies.

2.3.3 Social media plugins
Our website also uses the following social network plugins:

• Facebook
• Twitter
• Instagram
• Google+
• YouTube

These are services provided by the US companies:

Twitter Inc. (1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA)
Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)

On our website the plugins are recognisable by the respective companies’ logos or the "Like" or "Recommend" add-ons, for example. When you visit one of our websites which contains this type of plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the relevant company’s servers, and the content of the plugin is, in turn, transmitted to your browser, which incorporates it into the website being displayed. This is how the fact that you have visited our website is passed on to these companies. We are neither able to influence the data collected and processing operations, nor are the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of processing and the retention periods known to us. Neither is there any information available to us concerning the erasure of the collected data by the provider of the plugin. The provider of the plugin stores the data collected about you as a usage profile and uses this profile for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailoring the design of their website to demand. Analysis of this kind is primarily carried out (including for users who are not logged in) in order to display appropriate advertising and to inform other users on the social network about your activity on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of this user profile, and if you wish to exercise this right you must contact the provider of the respective plugin. We use these plugins to enable you to interact with social networks and other users, and to enable us to improve our service and design it so that it is more interesting to you as a user. The first sentence of Article 6(1f) GDPR provides the legal basis for the use of these plugins.

Provided that you are logged in to these companies’ sites via your personal user account when you visit our website, they can associate the website visit with that account. By interacting with plugins, e.g. by clicking on the "Like" button or leaving a comment, this related information is sent directly to these companies and stored on their systems. If you would like to prevent this sort of data being sent, you need to log out of your account at the company in question before visiting our website. Please refer to the following companies’ data protection notices for information about the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of your data by them, as well as your associated rights and the settings options for protecting your privacy:
