8. Sitecore
This Website uses the web analytics service Sitecore in order to help us continually improve the customer friendliness of our Website. For this purpose, Sitecore uses two types of tracking: First, Sitecore uses "cookies" that are stored on your computer and allow your use of the Website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this Website (e.g. browser settings, language settings, content you have clicked on) is transmitted to, and stored by, a Sitecore server in the US. You can use a corresponding setting in your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved; we would, however, like to draw your attention to the fact that, if you do so, you may not be able to use all of the functions offered by the Website in full. The second procedure is known as "fingerprint tracking". This involves collecting Data (e.g. certain system data such as IP address, screen resolution, operating system version, browser, flash plugin, country settings and language settings) using JavaScript. This Data is transmitted to, and saved on, the Sitecore server in the US. By way of example, you can make it more difficult for this Data to be saved, or prevent it from being saved, by using a browser that is as popular as possible (e.g. the latest version of Firefox) or by deactivating JavaScript. If you do so, however, you may not be able to use some Internet services either at all or in full.

Facebook directly transfers the Plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the Website. We cannot influence the scope of Data that Facebook collects with the help of this Plugin, meaning that the information we provide is based on our current knowledge.

If you interact with the Plugins, e.g. by clicking on the "Like" button or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook, where it will be saved. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to identify and save your IP address.
