  • 7 Social Media Plugins

(1)     This website currently uses the following social media plug-ins: Xing, LinkedIn. The data controller of this website uses the so-called two-click solution. This means that if you visit this website, initially no personal data will be passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. This website offers you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the highlighted field and activate it, will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed this website. In addition, the data referred to in point 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, data are automatically transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via the security settings of your browser before clicking on the greyed out box with the initial letter or logo of the plug-in.

(2)     We have no influence on the data collected and data processing, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

Such evaluation is also made for users who are not logged in, to display customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins this website offers you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that this website can improve its offers and make them more interesting for you as a user.

If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected on this website will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. When you press the activated button and link the page, for example, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates this publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, because you can avoid mapping to your profile with the plug-in provider.
