9. Use of Social-Media Plugins

(1) We currently use the following Social-Media Plugins: Facebook and Twitter. In this regard we use the so-called 2-click-solution. That means when you visit our site for the first time, principally no personal data are forwarded to the providers of these plugins. You can identify the provider of the plugin through the marking on the box based on the first letter or its logo. We make it possible for you to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, will the plugin provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website on our online offering. In addition, the data listed under point 3 of this declaration are transferred. In the case of Facebook, Facebook in Germany states that the IP address is anonymised immediately after it is collected. By activating the plugin, personal data are transferred from you to the respective plugin provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plugin provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grayed box using your browser's security settings.

(2) We neither have an influence on the collected data and data processing activities, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purposes as well as the storage deadlines. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plugin provider.

(3) The plugin provider will store the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of marketing, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is in particular carried out (also for users who are not logged in) for the presentation of needs-oriented advertising and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to a right of objection against the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plugin provider in order to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offering and design it in a more interesting manner for you as a user. The legal basis for the usage of plugins is provided by Article 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Lit. f GDPR.

(4) The data are transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plugin provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plugin provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plugin provider will also store this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as you can thereby avoid being assigned to your profile with the plugin provider.

(5) For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers as listed below. Here you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and adjusting your settings to protect your privacy.
