Privacy Policy for Social Media

Social plugins are software modules that are developed and made available by the social media services. They can be installed on web pages as is, to enable an automated communication (data exchange) between the web page and the social media services in accordance with their respective policies. As part of this communication, data are transferred dynamically from a social media service to one of our web pages, for example. On the other hand, at the same time, data from the user viewing our web pages are transferred to the social media service (e.g., that of the user’s computer IP address). You will notice the use of social plugins on certain web pages.

By clicking on any of the social media buttons, you agree to the use of this plugin and therefore the transfer of personal data to the respective social media service. We have no control over the nature and scope of these transmitted data as well as their further processing. According to our current state of knowledge, the relevant social media service is informed of your IP address and that of the web page using the plugin. If you are simultaneously logged in to a social media service platform, that social media service is able to directly assign the information to your user profile.

In order to avoid such a collection of profile information about you, you should log out of each social media service platform. Data such as the IP address of the computer you are using will be transmitted in any regard.

Social media is growing, and technology develops fast. As there are a large number of companies, plugins, addons, browsers, and providers, it is impossible — and thus legally not mandatory — to have a complete and up-to-date list of programmes, and the contact information of their developers, at any given time.
