Social Media Channels
Our online offering includes links to the social networks Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest, the career network Xing, the video portal YouTube and the short news service Twitter. You can recognise the links by the respective logos of the providers. Clicking on the links opens the corresponding social media pages, to which this data protection declaration does not apply. Please refer to the respective data protection declarations of the individual providers for details of the provisions applicable there. You can find these under:
Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognise the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. These plugins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the latter. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use. We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the service provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.
