This website uses social plug-ins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. After the plug-in is activated, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server. When this happens, Facebook is informed that you, with your IP address, have visited our site.

For more information on this, please see the Facebook data protection/privacy statement at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

Our pages incorporate functions of the service Twitter. These functions are offered by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

The +1 button lets you publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you entered for a piece of content +1 as well as information concerning the page you were visiting when you clicked on +1. Your +1’s can be shown as tips together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or in other places on websites and in ads on the Internet.
Google records information on your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information about you. In addition to the above-described uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection/privacy policies. Google may publish aggregate statistics regarding the +1 activities of users or disclose these to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites.
