Facebook, Twitter, XING and LinkedIn plugins

Our websites use social media and microblogging plugins, namely Facebook, Twitter, XING and LinkedIn. These services are respectively provided by Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc., XING AG and LinkedIn Corp. (“providers“).

Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. For a full list of Facebook plugins and logos please see: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. For a full list of Twitter plugins and logos please see: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons

XING is operated by XING AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. For a full list of XING plugins and logos please see: https://www.xing.com/app/share

LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Corp., 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For a full list of LinkedIn plugins and logos please see: https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins

Social media plugins are integrated into our site via a so-called "Shariff solution". This provides better protection for your data when you visit our website. When you visit a page on our website that contains Facebook, Twitter, XING or LinkedIn plugins, the 2-click solution ensures that you are not automatically connected to the plugin provider’s servers. The buttons will not initially transfer data to third parties. Only when you click on and thus activate the plugins do you agree to the transfer of data, at which point your browser will establish a direct connection to Facebook, Twitter, XING or LinkedIn servers. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the plugin 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 not currently logged in. The information collected (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly by your browser to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged into your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or XING account, the provider(s) can assign your visit to our website to the account in question.

If you interact with plugins, for example by clicking on the “Like”, “+1”, “Tweet” or “Share” button while logged into your account(s), the corresponding information is transmitted directly to the server of the provider(s), where it is stored.

The information is also published in the social network, social platform or your Twitter account and displayed in your contacts.

For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the information by providers, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy, please read the privacy policies of the respective providers.
