If you are offered the option of using personal user access on the website, we also use a cookie that extends beyond the duration of your respective visit, in which the information required for logging into the website is stored to facilitate later access. This cookie has a lifespan of ninety days and is then automatically deleted.

The cookies used for this website do not contain any viruses and do not cause any damage to your device. Personal data is not stored in the cookies used for this website.

If you want to prevent the setting of cookies, all common browsers offer appropriate settings for blocking and deleting cookies. However, blocking cookies can mean that the website cannot be used, or that it cannot be used to the full extent.

d) Google Analytics with anonymization function

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and thereby enable your use of the website to be analyzed.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the USA.

We use Google Analytics on our website with the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In this case, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymized.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

According to its own information, Google will in no case associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google collects on the websites you have visited. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services that we may use. Further information on installing the browser add-on is available from the following link:

f) Embedded Videos (YouTube)

We have integrated videos on our website that are technically provided by YouTube. YouTube is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

We use the provider’s so-called “extended data protection mode” to embed YouTube videos. Data is only collected by the provider when you click on the video and a cookie is stored on your computer. In this respect, the responsible body in terms of data protection is Google. Further information can be found in the data protection provisions of Google.

If you want to ensure that no data from you is transmitted to YouTube, do not click on the embedded videos on our website.

g) Use of Facebook, Twitter and Google+ buttons

Our digital offer has so-called “social plug-in functions” for the networks of Facebook, Twitter and Google+. To protect your privacy, we offer you these social plug-ins as so-called “2-click buttons”.

So-called “social plug-ins” are technologies that enable you as a user to make certain content known to members of social networks via a direct link. To do this, we use a technical solution that prevents data (e.g. IP address) from being sent to social networks such as e-mail when you open our website. B. Facebook.

This means the buttons from Facebook (operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA), Twitter (Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA) ) and Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) are deactivated by default.
They are only activated when the social plug-ins are clicked for the first time. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook, Twitter and Google, which integrates it into our website.
With a second click on the social plug-ins you can use the functions such as “Recommend” to their full extent.
This activation will be saved in your browser for up to eight weeks. You can deactivate the function at any time by clicking on the individual buttons or by deleting the cookies in your browser.

g.1) Facebook button

The Expedicial Reise has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of these plug-ins. However, we would like to inform you about this as far as we can. You can also find more information on the Facebook pages.

When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of how it is used by Facebook.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information:

If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign your visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account. You can also block Facebook social plug-ins with various add-ons for your browser.

g.2) Twitter button

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our sites. By using Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. This data is also transmitted to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it is used by Twitter.

You can find more information on this in Twitter’s data protection declaration at .

g.3) Google+ button

Our pages use Google+ functions.

You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide. You and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners via the Google+ button. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a piece of content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be shown as a hint together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information about you.

Use of the information collected: In addition to the purposes outlined above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarized statistics about the +1 activities of users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.

The expedicial trip has no influence on the amount of data that Google collects with the help of this button. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Google’s data protection information for the “+1” button: policies / privacy / partners /
