SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG-INS
The plugin provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to display needs-based 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 plugin provider as listed below to exercise this right. With the plugins, 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 plugins is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter f GDPR.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plugin provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plugin provider. If you press the activated button and, e.g. B. link the page, the plugin provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network. Still, especially before activating the button, as this way, you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plugin provider.
The website uses social plugins (hereinafter referred to as “plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
When a user calls up a page on our website that contains such a plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects using this plugin. According to the current knowledge of the provider, Facebook proceeds as follows:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the provider’s website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, e.g. press the so-called Like button or make a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from the user’s browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of the privacy of the users, can be found in Facebook’s data protection information https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
Suppose a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via the provider’s website and link it to his member data stored on Facebook. In that case, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for the user’s browser, e.g. with the “Facebook Blocker”.
The website uses plugins from Instagram operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”.
If you access a page of this website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Instagram servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Instagram to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Instagram” button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts there.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram as well as your rights as a user and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Instagram’s data protection information: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388/
If you do not want Instagram to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can also prevent the Instagram plugins from loading with add-ons for your browser, e.g. B. with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).
