Through this integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has loaded a specific page of our website. This also applies if you do not have a Twitter profile or are not currently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Twitter server in Ireland and stored there. If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can directly assign your visit to our website to your Twitter profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example, by clicking the “like” button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly by your browser to Twitter, where it is stored. The information will also be published on your Twitter profile and displayed to the Twitter contacts you have activated for this purpose.
