Data protection policy for social media

Use of social media plug-ins

1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, T3N, LinkedIn, Flattr]. We use the so-called double click solution. In other words, when you visit our website, 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, i.e. initial letter or logo. We give you 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 plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. According to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection by Facebook and Xing. By activating the plug-in, personal data will be transmitted by you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the USA for US providers). Since the plug-in provider carries out the data collection, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via the security settings of your browser before clicking on the greyed-out box.

3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected on you as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailor-made website design. Such evaluation is done particularly (even for users who are not logged in) to provide appropriate advertising and to inform other users of the social network about their activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To assert this right, you must contact the respective plug-in provider. The plug-ins give 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. Legal basis for the use of the plug-in is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 f) GDPR.

4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and e.g. link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates it to your contacts publicly. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent you from being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

5) For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.
