Social Media Buttons 

We also want our website to display information, that we share on social networks on this website and give you the possibility to share out information on your social media accounts. For this we use plugins of the providers of the respective services. If you click on the plugin to share a post over the network, a connection will be established with the respective service. This contribution is then made visible in your user account according to your privacy settings for the service - e.g. only to a certain group of people in the network or publicly. 

The default settings of the plugins would immediately transfer your personal data to the social network server when you access the website, regardless of whether you click or tap on the plugin or are registered as a user in the social network. To avoid this, we used the Shariff tool. With Shariff the connection to the server of the service is only established when you click on the plugin. 

Shariff is provided by c't and heise online as open source software. More information can be found here: 

The legal basis for data processing by social networks after the integration of the Shariff tool is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. The use of the plugins for advertising purposes only takes place after your active consent. 

We currently use the Twitter button with Shariff: The social plugin of the social network Twitter is used on the website. By clicking on the "Twitter" button, you can share a post with your contacts on Twitter and our current tweets on the website will be displayed. 

If you are logged in to your Twitter account when you activate the plugin, the data transferred will be assigned to your user account and the shared post will be displayed there. 

Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Twitter Inc. is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, an agreement that ensures compliance with EU privacy laws. You can access Twitter's privacy statement at the following link:

From this data, pseudonymized user profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor's Internet browser. Among other things, the cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser.
