We use privacy-safe “Shariff” buttons on the website. “Shariff” was developed by specialists from the computer magazine “ct” to enable more privacy on the internet and to replace the usual “share” buttons used by social networks. A single click on the button is enough to share information with others. Usual social media buttons transmit user data with every page view and give the social networks precise information about your surfing behaviour (user tracking). In contrast, a Shariff button establishes direct contact between the social network and the visitor only when the latter actively clicks on the Share button. More information about the Shariff project can be found here: https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/help/terms_maps.html.
