10. Social media plugins

On our website, we use social plugins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter, Xing and Linkedin on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The responsibility for privacy compliance of those services is on the respective providers. The integration of these plugins by us is done by the so-called two-click method to protect visitors of our website in the best possible way.

a) Facebook

Our pages integrate plugins from the social network Facebook, provided by Facebook Inc.m 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like Button” (“Like”) on our site. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. This is an offer from Facebook.

When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like-Button” while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate your visit to our Pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the Pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the design of the Facebook Pages in line with requirements. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

You can find more information on this in the Facebook privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign visits to our sites to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

b) Twitter

On our website you will find plugins of the short news network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter). You can recognize the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons). If you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter “tweet button” while you are logged in to your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to be able to link your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter user account.

For further information, please refer to the Twitter privacy policy (https://twitter.com/privacy).

c) Xing

On our website we use social media plugins from Xing SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany, to make their use more personal. For this we use the “SHARE” button. This is an offer from Xing. When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Xing servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Xing directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website.

Through the integration of the plugin, Xing receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Xing account or are not currently logged in to Xing. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Xing server and stored there.

If you are logged on to Xing, Xing can directly assign your visit to our website to your Xing account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Xing server and stored there. The information is also published on Xing and displayed to your Xing contacts.

Xing may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the design of Xing pages to meet your needs. For this purpose, Xing creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on Xing, to inform other Xing users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Xing.

If you do not want Xing to associate the data collected via our website with your Xing account, you must log out of Xing before visiting our website. For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Xing, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Xing data protection information (https://www.xing.com/privacy/).

d) LinkedIn

Our website uses social media plugins from LinkedIn Ireland U.C., Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, to personalize its use. For this we use the “SHARE” button. The plugins are marked with a LinkedIn logo, for example in the form of an “in” in an underlaid square. This is a LinkedIn offer. If you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to the LinkedIn servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by LinkedIn directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website.

By embedding the plugin, LinkedIn receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a LinkedIn account or are not currently logged in to LinkedIn. This information (including your IP address, proxy server, browser, add-ons, device identifier, and features of your Internet service provider or mobile operator, including location information) is transmitted directly from your browser to a LinkedIn server in the United States and outside the United States, where it is stored.

If you are logged in to LinkedIn, LinkedIn can directly associate your visit to our website with your LinkedIn account. When you interact with the plugins, for example when you click the “SHARE” button, the information is also sent directly to a LinkedIn server and stored there. The information is also published on LinkedIn and displayed to your LinkedIn contacts.

LinkedIn may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research, and customization of LinkedIn pages. For these purposes, LinkedIn may create usage, interest and relationship profiles, for example, to evaluate your use of our website with respect to the advertisements you see on LinkedIn, to inform other LinkedIn users of your activities on our website, and to provide other services related to your use of LinkedIn.
