8. Social Media


Plugins from social media are used on this website (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, XING, LinkedIn). You can usually recognize the plugins by the respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we only use these plugins together with the so-called "Shariff" solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on this website from transmitting data to the respective provider when you first enter the page.

Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking the associated button, a direct connection to the provider's server is established (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address.

If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign the visit of this website to your user account. Activating the plugin constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.



On our website you will find a so-called social plugin of the social network Facebook integrated (Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland).

Social plugins are buttons, fields and messages that a website like ours can use to provide you with an environment-oriented and personal user experience.

You can recognize these plugins from Facebook by one of the Facebook logos or symbols you are surely familiar with (letter "f" on a tile with a blue background, "Like" button with the "thumbs up" graphic). An overview of Facebook's social plugins can be found here:

Although these buttons, fields and messages are displayed on our website, their content comes directly from Facebook. When you interact with social plugins, you share experiences outside of Facebook with Facebook friends and others on Facebook. For example, when you click "Like" on our website, it is visible to the Facebook users with whom you share their messages according to your own Facebook settings.

When you visit our pages, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. If you do not want Facebook to be able to associate the visit to our pages with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account before you visit our page or do not log in or register with Facebook after you have clicked on a Facebook button, field or message and are prompted to do so.

The use of Facebook plugins is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in ensuring the greatest possible visibility in social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

You can recognize such Twitter plugins by one of the familiar Twitter logos or icons. Although this button is displayed on our websites, its content comes directly from Twitter.

Tailored content is stored only with your browser cookie ID and is separated from other widget data, such as information about the web pages you visit. This feature is optional and is not yet available to all users. You have the option to temporarily set the feature or disable it. In this case, the special cookie that enables this feature will be removed from your browser. You can get more information about this feature on Twitter's pages.
