To eliminate the personal identification of your IP address, it will be shortened immediately upon its collection (e.g. by deleting the last 8 bits) and thus made anonymous.

Our website contains plugins of the social network “Facebook”, which belongs to Facebook Inc.1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, from now on referred to as “Facebook“.

According to Facebook, this is data about your visit to our site (e.g. IP address, date and time).
