§6 Integrating services and third-party content

We use content or service offerings of third parties as part of our online offerings on the basis of legitimate interest (i.e. interest in analysing, optimising and efficiently operating the online offerings) to enable us to integrate their content and services, e.g. fonts or dynamic web elements (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

When calling up such content, a connection is automatically triggered to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently unclear whether and for what purposes – for the operators of such libraries to collect data. We endeavour to use only the content of providers which use the IP address solely for the delivery of content.

The list below provides an overview of the third-party providers and, where relevant, the links to their privacy statements which can contain further information on the means by which data is processed and opt-outs (i.e. the possibilities of objection). Alternatively, you can block access to third-party content by using a Java Script blocker or by deactivating Java Script in your browser. However, this might restrict some of the functionalities of our website.

To enable the offerings to be presented in a user-friendly and graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use the content of the following providers on this website:

The legal basis for transferring data in this case is Art. 6 I f) GDPR. Each provider is responsible for processing the transmitted data in accordance with data protection regulations.

a) Facebook

We use online presences in social networks and platforms to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and inform them about our services. For this purpose, we use the technical platform and services of Facebook.

Facebook is an internet service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this service is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereinafter referred to in both cases only as “Facebook”. By being certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, Facebook guarantees compliance with the EU data protection requirements even if the data is being processed in the USA.

Please note that you are individually accountable for the way in which you use this Facebook page and its functions. This particularly applies if you use the interactive functions (e.g. comments, sharings, ratings). Alternatively you can also download the information offered on this page from our webside under

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects your IP address and other information available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about how the Facebook page is used. You can find out more information about this from Facebook via the following link:

Your personal data collected in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and is transferred, where applicable, to countries outside the European Union. Facebook explains in a general form which information it receives and how it uses this information in its Data Usage Policies. Here you can also find information on the means of contacting Facebook and on the possibilities of setting up advertisements. The complete Facebook data policies can be found here:

The way in which Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on the Facebook pages are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from visits to a Facebook page is passed on to third parties has not been conclusively and clearly explained by Facebook and is therefore unknown to us. When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (in the case of “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about its users’ end devices (e.g. under the “Login notification” function); this might mean that Facebook is able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged into Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID can be found on your device. This enables Facebook to determine that you visited this page and how you used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into websites allow Facebook to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data is used as a basis for offering customised content or advertising. If you wish to prevent this from happening, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the “Remain logged-in” button, delete the cookies on your device and exit and restart your browser. This makes it possible to delete any Facebook information that enables your identity to be directly established. It allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access interactive features of the website (the Like button, comments, sharings, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. If you were to log in, you would again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user.

For information on how to manage or delete existing personal information, please visit the Facebook support pages.

As a provider, we do not additionally collect and process any data relating to your use of our online presence on Facebook.
