6. Social Media Plug-ins
We employ social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Google+ on our website, conforming with GDPR (Art. 6.1.1.f), in order to promote company visibility. The underlying commercial purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the scope of GDPR. Responsibility for the operations compliant with GDPR is assumed by the respective providers. These plug-ins are integrated on our website with the so-called two-click method, in order to protect visitors of our website in the best possible manner.
Social media plugins from Faceook are used on our website to personalize usage. For this purpose, we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" buttons, which is a feature from Facebook.
If you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser and integrated by the latter into the website.
Facebook receives by means of this plugin integration the information that your browser has accessed on the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are currently not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the US and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, press the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of Facebook and stored there. The information will also be posted on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and bespoke Facebook pages. For this purpose, user profiles, interest profiles and relationship profiles are created by Facebook. For example, to evaluate your use of our website in relation to the advertisements displayed on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
