Twitter Disclaimer

Our website integrates a plug-in of the communications platform Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (henceforth: Twitter). This plug-in is displayed through the Twitter logo including the phrase “Tweet”.

Through the use of Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” function, the web pages you visit are linked to your Twitter account and communicated to other Twitter users. Data is also transmitted to Twitter in this process. For example, Twitter receives the information that you have visited our website. If you click the “Tweet” button while you are logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of this website on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to assign your visit of our website to your Twitter user account.  We point out that we as providers of this website have no knowledge of the exact content of data that is transmitted to Twitter and the use of it through Twitter. For more information, please see the privacy statement of Twitter at http://twitter.com/privacy.
