Use of social plug-ins via the "2 Click Solution"
We use plug-ins of social networks on our website via the "2 Click Solution". No connections are made to the social network servers without your express consent and consequently no data is transmitted.
In the case of the standard integration of plug-ins, when you access the pages of our website that contain such a plug-in, a link is established between your computer and the servers of the social network providers and the plug-in is displayed on the page by means of a message to your browser. In doing so, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted to the provider's servers. This applies regardless of whether you are registered or logged in to the social network. Even if you are not registered or not logged in, a transmission will take place. If you are also logged in to the social network Facebook, this information is assigned to your personal user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by clicking the button), this information is also assigned to your user account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in. In order for you to retain control over your data, we have decided to deactivate the corresponding button for the time being. You can recognize this by the grayed out button. Without your express consent - in the form of activating the button - no link to the social network server will be established and consequently no data will be transmitted.
Only when you activate the button, the button becomes active (highlighted) and a direct connection to the social network server is established.
By activating the button, you give your consent to the transfer of your data to the respective social network provider. In doing so, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited will be transmitted. If you are simultaneously connected to one or more of your social network accounts, the information collected is also assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your social network accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons from your user accounts.
The social networks named below are integrated using the "2-click function". You will find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of the collection and use of the data as well as on your rights in this regard and possibilities for protecting your privacy in the linked data protection notices of the providers.
