3.    Information about Social Plugins

a)    We currently use Social Media Plugins from Facebook, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. In this case, we deploy the so-called 2-click solution. This means that when you visit our pages, initially, no person-related data are transferred to the provider of these plugin You can identify the provider of the plugin by the marking on the greyed-out box on the first letter. Person-related data are only sent if you click on one of the plugins. By activating the plugin, data are automatically sent to the corresponding provider and stored there. In the case of US American providers, the data are stored in the USA. We have no influence on the collected data and how they are further processed. We are also unaware of the scope of the data collection, the purpose of the data collection or for how long the data are stored. As the plugin provider principally uses Cookies for the data collection, we recommend that you delete all Cookies through your browser's security settings before clicking on the greyed out box.

Additionally, the data specified in item 2 a) of this Privacy Policy are transmitted, whereby in the case of Facebook and Xing, according to information from the corresponding provider in Germany, only an anonymised IP is collected. This happens irrespective of whether you have an account with this plugin provider and whether you are logged in. If you are logged in to the plugin provider, these data are assigned directly to your account. If you click on the activated button and for example link the page, the plugin provider also stores this information in your user account and informs your contacts publicly. If you don’t want the assignment with your plugin provider profile, you have to log out before activating the button.

c)    The plugin provider stores these data as a usage profile and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or the tailored design of its website. Such an evaluation is used particularly, also in the case of non-logged-in users, for the display of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activity on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of this user profile but in order to exercise this right, you will have to refer directly to the corresponding plugin provider.
