of your Internet browser. This data shall not be forwarded to any third party and shall not, without your consent, be combined with personal data.

pseudonyms. The software stores cookies (text files) on your computer enabling an analysis of your use of our website. Your IP address is being anonymized immediately after the processing and
prior to being stored so that you as the user remain anonymous. The information about your use of the website created by the cookie shall not be transferred to any third party. In case you don't want Piwik to store any cookies, you can deactivate the installation of cookies via the settings of your browser (use the help function of your browser to find further corresponding information).

Use of Facebook extension (Like button)

On the websites of the Town of Herzogenaurach, you are able to share individual sites via Facebook, using the plug-ins in the footer of the municipal Internet presence. For the social media buttons
incorporated in the websites, the Town of Herzogenaurach uses the Shariff solution compliant with the relevant data protection regulations. When visiting our websites, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Thus Facebook receives the information that you have visited our sites with your IP address. When clicking on the Facebook "Like button"
while you are logged in on your Facebook account, you may link the contents of our sites with your Facebook profile. With this, Facebook can allocate the visit to our websites to your user account.

We point out that we as provider of the websites do not have any knowledge of the data transmitted, or of the use thereof, by Twitter.

Links (data connections)

In accordance with s. 5 subs. 1 German Teleservices Act and s. 5 of the Interstate Agreement on Media Services, the Town of Herzogenaurach as content provider is exclusively responsible for "own" contents offered for use. Such own contents are to be distinguished from cross references ("links") to contents made available by other providers. With links to external sites, the Town of Herzogenaurach enables access to "third-party" contents. Any cross reference by the Town of Herzogenaurach solely offers access for use of such contents (s. 9 Teleservices Act). The Town of Herzogenaurach does not assume any liability with regard to these "third-party" contents since it does not prompt the transfer of
information, does not chose the recipient of the information and does neither chose nor alter the transferred information. Thanks to the relevant applied activation and link method, there is no automated short-term buffer storage of such "third-party information" by the Town of Herzogenaurach, i.e. there neither is any responsibility of the Town of Herzogenaurach for such third-party contents in this regard. Yet, when establishing a link to such online offers for the first time, the Town of Herzogenaurach reviews the relevant third-party contents with regard to any civil or criminal liabilities arising from such contents. However, in case the Town of Herzogenaurach notices, or a third party indicates, the fact that a specific offer linked to by the Town of Herzogenaurach causes any civil or criminal liabilities, the Town of Herzogenaurach will immediately revoke the relevant reference to this offer as far as technically possible and reasonable. For any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and particularly for any damage caused by the use or disuse of third-party information, the provider of the
website that has been linked to assumes sole liability.

Data collection and storage

As far as the collection and processing of personal data of users is required in the framework of this offer or any online application of the Town of Herzogenaurach, this is appropriately indicated.
