Social media plugin "Shariff Wrapper

We offer you the possibility to use so-called "social media buttons" on our website. To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution for implementation. Through this, these buttons are only integrated on our site as a static graphic, which contains a link to the corresponding website of the provider. By clicking on the graphic, you are thus redirected to the website of the respective provider, just as it works with normal links. Only when you call up the provider's website does the provider receive information about you, such as your IP address. If you do not click on the button graphics, no data exchange takes place. Information about the collection and use of your data in the social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the corresponding providers.

More information about the plugin and the Shariff solution can be found here:


We integrate videos of the platform "YouTube" of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

At this point, please use the text from our Governikus Privacy Policy, if applicable.

Use of YouTube videos

We use embedded YouTube videos in extended data protection mode. YouTube is a service of Google Inc, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. YouTube provides this extended data protection mode and thus ensures that YouTube does not store any cookies with personal data on your computer. When calling up the website and embedding the videos, the IP address is transmitted. This cannot be assigned unless you have logged in to YouTube or another Google service before accessing the page or are permanently logged in. As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your computer through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions (source: YouTube "Enabling enhanced privacy mode for embedded videos").

Privacy Policy:

We use the WP YouTube Lyte plug-in, which replaces the YouTube videos with a locally stored thumbnail and starts the player only after clicking on it.

Analysis tools

For statistical analysis of user accesses, we use Matomo, an open source software for web analysis. Matomo uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of our website is stored on our server in Germany. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is stored.
