If the processing of personal data is required in order to comply with the provisions of a contract to which the data subject is party, paragraph 6 sub-paragraph 1 (b) GDPR shall serve as legal basis. This shall also apply to processing procedures required for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Terms of use: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Privacy overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as Data privacy statement: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

VII. Use of social media-plugins

1. Use of Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn

We are using the so-called Double Click solution. Basically, this means that no personal data will be transmitted to the providers of plugins if you visit our site. You can recognise the provider of plugins through the tag on the box above its initial or logo. We offer you the possibility to directly communicate with the provider of a plugin by pressing the corresponding button. Only if you click on the marked box – and thus activate it – the plugin provider will receive the information that you have visited the relevant website of our online offer. In addition to that, the data described under Section IV of this Privacy Statement will be transmitted. In the cases of Facebook and Xing, the respective providers in Germany state that they render IP addresses anonymous immediately after having collected them. This means that by activating plugins, you are transmitting personal data to the corresponding plugin provider which will be stored at the plugin provider’s location (in case of US providers, storage will be in the USA). Due to the fact that plugin providers collect data particularly by using cookies, we would like to recommend you to delete all cookies via the security settings of your browser before you click on any greyed-out box.

Plugin providers store the data collected from you as user profile and use them for advertising, market research and needs-oriented design purposes of their website. This evaluation is particularly used (even if the User is not logged in) for the presentation of needs-oriented advertisements and to inform other Users of that social network about your activities on our website.

Data are transmitted whether or not you have an account with the plugin provider and whether or not you are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plugin provider, the data we collected from you are directly allocated to your account with the plugin provider. If you activate the button and e.g. link the page, the plugin provider will store this information in your User Account and communicate it publicly to your contacts. We would like to recommend you to regularly log off after using a social network, particularly before activating the button. This will prevent any allocation to your profile on the part of the plugin provider.

For further information regarding purpose and scope of data collection and processing on the part of plugin providers please, check the below data privacy statements of the corresponding providers. There, you will be provided with additional information on your rights in this context and on the possibility to adjust your settings so as to protect your privacy.
