We maintain an online presence on various social networks and platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, SlideShare and Xing, to communicate with users and interested parties or inform them about our services. When one of these social networks is accessed, its business conditions and data privacy notices will apply.
On our website, we use social plug-ins (“buttons”) from the social networks and platforms.
When you visit our website, these buttons are deactivated as standard, so they will not send any data to their respective social network without further action on your part. Before you can use a b6tton you must activate it with a click. The button will remain active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
Activating a button establishes a direct connection with the server of the social network in question. Then the social network will transmit the button’s content directly to your browser, which will incorporate that content into the website.
After a button is activated, the social network in question can collect data regardless of whether you interact with the button. If you are logged into a social network, that network can assign your visit to this website to your user account.
If you are a member of a social network but do not want that network to connect your stored member data with the data collected during your visit to our website, you must log out of the social network in question before activating the button.
We have no influence over the scope of the data that social networks collect with their buttons. Please refer to a particular social network’s business conditions and data processing notices to learn the scope and purpose of that network’s collection, processing and use of data, your rights in the matter, and how to change settings to protect your privacy.
