Social Plugins from Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn using the „2 Click Solution“

On our website so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social networks Facebook and Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn are used. These services are provided by the companies Facebook Inc., Google Inc., Twitter Inc. and LinkedIn Inc. ("Providers").

Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). An overview of the plugins of Facebook and their appearance can be found here:

Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"). An overview of the Twitter buttons and their appearance can be found here:

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the site by means of a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when you visit a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection is yet established with the servers of Facebook, Google Twitter and LinkedIn. Only when you activate the plugins and thus give your consent to the data transmission, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google, Facebook or Twitter. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are currently not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to one of the social networks, the providers can immediately allocate the visit to our website to your profile on Facebook or Google+ or Twitter. If you interact with the plugins, for example the "Like", the "+1", or the "Tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a provider's server and stored there. The information will also be posted on the social network or on your Twitter account and displayed there to your contacts. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as their rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the provider.

If you do not want Google, Facebook or Twitter to directly associate the data collected via our website with your profile in the relevant service, you must log out of the corresponding service before activating the plug-ins.
