If you are also logged in as a member on Twitter, the “Twitter International Company” can relate the visit on our site to your Twitter-account.

We inform you that we as the website operator have no knowledge about the content of the data transferred to Twitter or about how the data is used by Twitter. You can find further information hereto in Twitter’s data privacy statement on http://twitter.com/privacy.
