We use social plugins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Xing on our website to make our company better known. The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers. We integrate these plugins using the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website as best as possible:
Our website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Social Plugin from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin".
An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found at the following link: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or posting a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook's data protection information under the following link: www.facebook.com/policy.php
