(1) We use various (Social Media) plug-ins on our website and we would hereby like to count up the plug-ins used as well as explain in detail how they are used.
(a) To do so we use the so-called two-click solution. That means that if you visit our website, initially no personal data is forwarded to the plug-in provider as a matter of principle. You will recognise the plug-in provider by the branding on the box above his initial letter or logo. We are giving you an opportunity to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only if you click on the indicated box and consequently activate it will the plug-in provider the information that you have called up the corresponding webpage of our website. In addition to this, the data stated under Section 4 of this statement will be sent to him.
According to what the respective provider in Germany says, in the case of Facebook the IP address will be anonymised immediately following collection. As a result of activating the plug-in personal data will therefore be sent from you to the respective plug-in provider and saved there (for providers based in the USA. Since the plug-in provider collects the data via cookies in particular, we would recommend that you delete all cookies on your browser in the security settings on your browser prior to clicking on the greyed-out box.
(b) We do not have any influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we familiar with the full scope of data collection, the purposes for which data is processed and the length of the retention periods. We do not have any information about when the data collected by the plug-in provider is deleted.
(c) The plug-in provider saves the data collected about you as a usage profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing his website so that it is fit for use. This type of analysis is carried out in particular (for users who are not logged in as well) to display advertising fit for use and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to lodge an objection to the formation of a user profile about you, whereby you will have to contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Via plug-ins we are offering you the option to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve whatwe have on offer and become of greater interest for you as user. The legal basis for using the plug-in is Article 6 Para 1 P 1 f GDPR.
(d) The data will be forwarded regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in with him. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your information that we have collected will be matched directly to the account you have with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, link to the webpage, the plug-in provider will save this information too in your user account and inform your contacts about it publically. We would recommend that after using a social network you regularly log out in particular however, prior to pressing the button so that by doing so you can prevent information being matched with your profile by the plug-in provider.
