Social plugins

 

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Via these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service operator and may be used by the operator. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding switch. Only when the plug-in is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use.

We have no influence on which data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. It must currently be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider will try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is recorded and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

Instagram, Facebook, Youtube
