7. Social Media Plugins
We use social plugins provided by the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Xing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR in order to raise the profile of our company through these networks. The underlying advertising purpose is a legitimate interest in the sense of the GDPR. The respective providers are responsible for privacy-compliant operation. These plugins are integrated into our website using a two-click method to provide our website visitors with the best possible protection.
Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to better personalise their use. To this end we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” buttons. These are a service provided by Facebook.
When you visit one of our web pages containing this kind of plugin, your browser will create a direct link with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is directly transmitted from Facebook to your browser and integrated by Facebook into the web page.
By integrating the plugin, Facebook obtains the information that your browser has retrieved the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook at that moment. These data (including your IP address) are directly transmitted from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. When you interact with plugins by, say, using the “LIKE” or “SHARE” buttons, that information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. This information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and needs-appropriate design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook usage, interest and relationship profiles are created, for example to analyse your use of our website with regard to the ads you are shown on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website, and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not wish Facebook to associate data that it collects when you visit our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our website.
Our website also uses social plugins (“plugins”) from Instagram, operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA („Instagram“).
The plugins feature an Instagram logo in the form, say, of an “Instagram camera”.
When you visit one of our web pages containing this kind of plugin, your browser will create a direct link with Instagram’s servers. The content of the plugin is directly transmitted from Instagram to your browser and integrated by Instagram into the web page. By integrating the plugin, Instagram obtains the information that your browser has retrieved the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram account or are not logged in to Instagram at that moment. These data (including your IP address) are directly transmitted from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. When you interact with plugins by, say, using the “Instagram” button, that information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.
This information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts there.
If you do not wish Instagram to associate the data collected when you visit our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
The “XING Share button” is used on this website. When you visit our website, a connection to the XING SE (“XING”) servers is temporarily created allowing the XING Share button functions (and the calculation/display of counters) to be provided. XING does not store your personal data when you visit our website. Most notably, XING does not store any IP addresses. Equally, your user behaviour is not analysed via cookies when you use the XING Share button.
Current privacy information about the XING Share button and further details are available here: (https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection).
8. Embedded YouTube Videos
YouTube videos are embedded in parts of our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page containing the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube’s servers is created, so that YouTube knows which pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your browsing behaviour with your personal account. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
When you launch a YouTube video, the provider places a cookie that collects information about your user behaviour.
If you have deactivated cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not receive any such cookies when you view YouTube videos.
However, YouTube stores non-personal usage information on other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block cookies in your browser.

Our security measures are improved on an ongoing basis in line with technological advances.
