Using the Twitter Widgets

Our website also utilizes “Widgets” from Twitter. Widgets connect to Twitter servers, which are located in the United States. A call to an internet site with a Twitter “widget” sends Twitter information about your page views. It includes your IP address, browser type, operating system, and the address of the website where you will find the “Widget” from Twitter. The Twitter “Widget” places a cookie in the browser of your device. In connection with the cookie, Twitter can recognize, theoretically, what pages you have visited.

Using the Google “+1 button”

We also set the “+1 button” of a Google (“+1 button”). This button results in a call to connect to Google’s servers. The Google servers can typically be found in the USA. Through the page view Google can get the information that you have accessed the website in question. This is especially true if you are logged in at the time of calling the web pages. According to information provided by Google “+1 button”, it is not used to record visits on websites. Google indicates in particular that a browsing history is not stored permanently. However, storing the information about your visit for a period of (usually) two weeks would occur. If you click on the “+1 button”, then, according to Google, be information about your Google profile, the address of the website where the “+1 button” is clicked, your IP address, and other information is saved. If you withdraw its recommendation by clicking again on the “+1 button”, this data will be deleted. Google also uses cookies to process information about the use of Internet sites.
