Social media buttons
We also use passive social media buttons and / or plugins on this website that you can use to connect to your social network in various ways. A direct connection to the provider’s server is only established when you click the respective button. The following social media buttons are available: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr, WhatsApp, Google Maps and TripAdvisor. As soon as you have clicked on one of the buttons, a new tab opens on the corresponding log-in page. Only now does data transfer to the provider take place over which we no longer have any influence. These providers will set cookies that e.g. can be used to improve your profile on their website or to contribute to the data that they store for various purposes set out in their respective privacy policies.
