Our web pages use social plugins of the below mentioned providers. You can recognize these plugins due to the fact that they are identified by their corresponding logo.
Where appropriate, information - which may include personal data - is sent to service providers and used by them, if applicable. We are preventing any automatic and/or unwanted collection and transmission of data to service providers by using the so-called double-click solution. Whenever you wish to activate a social plugin, it must be activated by a click on the corresponding button. The collection of information and the transmission of such information to the service provider only take place after activating this plugin. Our company does not collect any personal data via social plugins or by using such plugins.
The data collected by activated plugins as well as the manner these data are used by the providers is beyond our control. Currently, it has to be assumed that they establish a direct connection to the provider's services and that the information collected and used comprise IP address and device-related information, at least. There is also the possibility that service providers try to store cookies on the computer. If you want to know which data are collected and how they are used in a concrete case please refer to the data protection information of the corresponding service provider.
