Use of social media plug-ins
We currently use social media plug-ins on our website. The logo indicates the plug-ins of the respective provider. We use the two-click method for these plug-ins. In other words, when you visit our site, initially no personal information is passed on to the provider of the plug-ins. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by its initial letter or logo on the icon. We allow you to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. The plug-in provider is notified that you have opened the corresponding website of our online presence unless you activate the selected field by clicking it. The personal information that your browser sends to our server is also passed on. This means that when you activate the plug-in, your personal information is sent by you to the plug-in provider and stored there (in the USA in the case of US providers). If you are logged-in with your respective account, the provider may assign your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. You can avoid this by logging out from your account before and by deleting cookies if necessary.

We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor do we know the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing or retention periods. Deletion of collected information also depends on the policies of plug-in providers. The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailored website design. This analysis, which also applies to anonymous users, is primarily used for placing custom ads and informing other users of the social network about your activities on our website. Data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in to the provider's site. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. The plug-ins allow you to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our site and make it more interesting for you as a user. The lawful basis for the use of plug-ins is Article 6, paragraph 1, subsection 1, point (f) GDPR.
