9-Social media plugin
Based on art. 6 seq. 1 S. 1 lit. f. DSGVO (GDPR), we insert social plugins of the social networks LinkedIn and Instagram on our website with the aim to make our association known to the public. The plugins are marked with an “Instagram button” as well as a “LinkedIn Button”. The connected advertising purpose has to be seen as legitimate interest in the sense of DSGVO (GDPR). The responsibility for a business in conformity with privacy has to be guaranteed by the particular service provider. The insertion of these plug-ins is made through the so-called two-click-method in order to give the visitors of our website a best possible protection. In other words, when you visit our site, initially no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins.
Our website uses social media plugins from LinkedIn Ireland U.C., Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. The plugins are marked with a “LinkedIn button”. When you access a site on our web presence that contains such a plugin, your browser sets up a direct connection with the LinkedIn servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by LinkedIn directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it.
By integrating the plugins, LinkedIn is informed that your browser has called up the respective site on our website. This happens regardless of whether you are currently logged in to the social network or even registered. This information (including your IP address, your proxy server, your browser, your add-ons, your device identification and the functions of your Internet service provider or mobile network operator including location identification) is transmitted directly from your browser to a LinkedIn server in the USA and outside the USA and stored there.
If you are logged into LinkedIn, LinkedIn can directly assign your visit to our website to your LinkedIn account. If you interact with the plugins, the respective information is also transmitted directly to a LinkedIn server and stored there. f you do not want the social network to link your visit to our website to your respective user account, log out of the respective network when using our digital service.
The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of your data by LinkedIn as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy in this context can be found in LinkedIn's data protection policy (https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy).
On our website, so-called social plugins ("plugins") by the social network Instagram are used, which is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram"). The plug-ins are marked with an “Instagram button”. When you call up a site on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser sets up a direct connection with Instagram servers. Instagram then transmits the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates in into the site. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the respective site of our web presence, even if you do not have any Instagram profile or are not currently logged on to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into Instagram, it can directly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with plugins, for example by clicking the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. If you do not want Instagram to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website.

If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. The information can also be published on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.
