Use of social media plug-ins
We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Xing, Youtube, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Flickr, skype (for business), iTunes U
We use the two-click solution. In other words, when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by the marking on the box above its initial letter or by its logo. We provide you with the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and activate it, the provider of the plug-in receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the above-mentioned data and possibly cookies are transmitted to the provider. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, personal data will be transmitted by you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider carries out the data collection, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box via the security settings of your browser.
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purpose of the processing, the retention periods. We also have no information on how to delete the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or customized website design. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for non-logged-in users) for the presentation of customized advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise it. Through the plug-ins we offer you the opportunity to interact with the 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 is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lt. f GDPR.
The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and whether you are logged in. If you are logged in, the data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it with your contacts publicly. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent your data from being associated with your profile with the plug-in provider.
For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy declarations of these providers provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.
