We have integrated components of Twitter on some of our web pages. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible micro-blogging service where users can publish and share so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, i.e. also by individuals not registered with Twitter. Twitter makes it possible to address a broader audience via hashtags, links or retweets.
Twitter is operated by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
Each time you access one of the individual web pages operated by us as the controller and on which a Twitter component is integrated, the browser of your IT system is automatically prompted by the Twitter component to download an image of the Twitter component from Twitter. Please see https://help.twitter.com/using-twitter/embed-twitter-feed for more information on the Twitter timeline.
If you are logged into Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognises - with each visit of our website on which the Twitter component is used - which specific sub-page of our website you visit. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned to your Twitter account by Twitter.
Twitter will in each case be notified via the Twitter component that you have visited our website, provided you are simultaneously logged into Twitter when accessing our website; this takes place irrespective of whether you click the Twitter component or not. If you do not agree to such transmission of information to Twitter, you can prevent it by logging out of your Twitter account prior to accessing our website.
We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service.
