We use Google Fonts, online font libraries of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), to display fonts on our website within the framework of our legitimate interest in a technically flawless online offering and its economically efficient design and optimisation pursuant to Art.6 (1) lit.f DSGVO.

Social media

Social Media Links

General notes

We refer to our offered social media presences with links. Unlike social media plugins, links do not lead to the social media platform finding out about your visit when you call up our site. However, like any link, they will lead to your data being processed by the social media platform at the latest when you click on the link. As a rule, the social media platform will save cookies on your device or even save your usage behaviour for your account, especially if you are logged in yourself. The social media platform can use your data to analyse your user behaviour and use it for (interest-based) advertising. This may result in advertisements being displayed to you inside and outside the social media platform. Please make it clear to yourself whether you want to accept this and only use a social media platform if you have adequately informed yourself about the data processing there and agree to it (this applies in particular if you yourself have not yet used it) - we have attached links to the data protection declarations of the social media platforms in each case.


Our site uses links to our presence on the social network Facebook of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. It is only a normal link, so when you call up our page, Facebook does not learn of your visit to our website. However, if you click on the link, you will be redirected to Facebook, which will also tell Facebook that you had visited our site.

This will transfer your data to the US, but Facebook is registered with Privacy Shield and is obliged to comply with EU data protection rules.

We have no knowledge of and no influence on the possible collection and use of your data by Facebook after you click on the link. For more information, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy at
