2. Social Media

a) Use of Social-Media-Plug-Ins

aa) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook and Instagram. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned in § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted.

To Facebook: Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc. , 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94 304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the words “Social Plug-in from Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin. ” An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: developers.facebook.com/plugins
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the “Like” button or leaving a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and settings options to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy: www.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of the Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e. g. with the “Facebook Blocker” or the script blocker “NoScript" (http://noscript.net/).

To Instagram: Functions of the Instagram service are integrated on our pages. These features are integrated by Instagram Inc. , 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94 025, USA. If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of our pages to your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or their use by Instagram. Further information can be found in the privacy policy of Instagram.

bb) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

cc) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

dd) Data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and for example link the page, the plug-in provider stores this information in your user account and communicates it publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, in particular before activating the button, as this will help you avoid being assigned to your profile at the plug-in provider.

ee) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy statements of these providers provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options to protect your privacy.
