The underlying promotional purpose is to be viewed as legitimate interest in terms of the GDPR. The respective providers of these plug-ins are responsible for ensuring that their operation takes place in compliance with the data protection regulations. We embed these plug-ins using what is referred to as the two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible manner.

a) Facebook

Social media plug-ins from Facebook are used on our website to personalise its use. We use the "LIKE" and "SHARE" buttons for this purpose. These represent a service from Facebook.

When you visit a page on our website that contains a plug-in of this type, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The contents of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which embeds it into the website.

By embedding the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are currently not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly to a Facebook server in the US by your browser and stored there.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for instance, by clicking on the "LIKE" or "SHARE" buttons or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also posted on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook can use this information for advertising and market research purposes, and for designing needs-based Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles and more, for example, to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements that appear to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of Facebook.

The Data Controller has embedded Twitter plug-ins into this website. Twitter is a multilingual micro-blogging service that is available to the public where users can post and disseminate what are referred to as tweets, or short messages, that are limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including non-Twitter subscribers. The tweets are also displayed to what are referred to as the followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Twitter also allows you to address a broad audience using hash tags, links or re-tweets.

The company that operates Twitter is Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street., Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages on this website that the Data Controller operates on which a Twitter plug-in (Twitter button) is embedded is called up, the respective Twitter plug- causes the corresponding Twitter plug-in from Twitter to be downloaded and displayed automatically on the browser on the IT system used by the data subject. For more information on Twitter buttons, please refer to: https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons As part of this technical process, Twitter receives information about the specific sub-page on our website that the data subject visited. The purpose of embedding the Twitter plug-in is to allow our users to redistribute the contents of this website, to promote this website in the digital world and to increase the number of visitors to our website.

If the data subject is signed in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognises which specific sub-page the data subject visits on our website every time they call up our website during the entire duration of their respective visit to our website. The Twitter plug-in collects this information and Twitter assigns it to the data subject's Twitter account. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons embedded into our website, the data and information transmitted by doing so is assigned to the data subject's personal Twitter account and stored and processed by Twitter.

The Twitter plug-in also supplies Twitter with information stating that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject simultaneously signs in to Twitter at the time he calls up our website; this happens regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the Twitter plug-in. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Twitter, he can prevent it by signing out of his Twitter account before calling up our website.
