2. Social Plugins
For data protection reasons we have deliberately decided against using direct plug-ins from social networks on our websites. Instead, we use a solution through which you yourself can determine whether and if data is to be transmitted to the providers of the respective social networks. Generally, if you retrieve our websites, no data is automatically transmitted to social networks. Your Internet browser will create a connection to the servers of the respective social network only once you actively click on the respective button, i.e. by clicking the respective button (e.g. “share”) you consent to your Internet browser establishing a connection to the servers of the respective social network and to transmit usage data to the respective provider of the social network.
Data transmitted through the plug-ins by clicking the buttons may possibly be connected to existing accounts and profiles. The providers also may create usage profiles. We have no influence on data processing or data retention after transmission of the data to the stated providers. In case of questions concerning data processing after transmission, please note the following privacy statements of the providers and contact them directly in case of questions.
The transmission of data to the relevant provider is subject to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR based on your consent.
