In order to make us better known on social networks, we use plug-ins from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest on our website, pursuant to Article 6 section 1 f) of the GDPR. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR.

a) Facebook

Facebook social media plug-ins are used on our web pages to make their use more personal.

For this purpose we use the "Share" button. This is an offer made by Facebook.

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plug-in will be transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website.

By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook will receive information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA where it will be stored.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook is able to assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account.

If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by klicking the "Like" or "Share" button, the corresponding information will also be transmitted directly to a Facebook server where it will be stored. The information will also be published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for advertising, market research and demand-oriented configuration of Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our Internet pages and to provide further services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.

By doing so, Twitter will receive the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter "Tweet button" while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to assign the visit of our pages to your user account.

If you do not want Twitter to assign your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account before visiting our website.

The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, e.g. an "Instagram camera".

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to the servers of Instagram. Instagram will send the content of the plug-in directly to your browser and integrate it into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.

This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly from your browser to a server of Instagram in the USA where it will be stored. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the "Instagram" button, this information will also be transmitted directly to a server of Instagram where it will be stored.

The information will also be published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.

If you do not want Instagram to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
