A liability obligation in the case of direct or indirect references to external Internet pages ("links") that do not lie within the author's area of responsibility would only come into effect if the author had knowledge of the content and it would be technically feasible and reasonable to prevent use in the case of illegal content.

For this reason, the author dissociates himself from any contents of the linked pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement remains valid for all links and references set within the author's own website as well as for external entries in guest books and mailing lists set up by the author.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses). Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie with your Facebook ID on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information that can directly identify you will be deleted. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After any login, you will again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user.
