Using social plugins from Facebook, Google+, Twitter by using the "2-click solution
On our website, we use so-called social plugins ("plugins") for the social networking sites Facebook, Google+ and the micro-blogging service Twitter. These services are offered by the company Facebook Inc., Google Inc. and Twitter Inc. ("Provider").
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and where they can be used here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). You can find an overview of the Google plug-ins and where they can be used here: https://developers.google.com/+/web/
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 USA ("Twitter"). You can find an overview of the Twitter buttons and where they can be used here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons
In order to increase your privacy when you visit our website, plug-ins using a so-called "2-click solution" are integrated into the site. This integration ensures that when you call up a page on our website that contains a plugin, no connection to the servers of Facebook, Google and Twitter is produced. Only when you activate the plugin and thus give your consent for data transmission, will your browser make a direct connection to the servers of Google, Facebook or Twitter. The content of the respective plug-in is then transmitted from the associated provider directly to your browser and integrated into the site. By integrating the plugin, the provider gets the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page on our website. This will occur even if you do not have a profile with the relevant supplier or are simply not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to one of the the provider's servers in the US and is stored there. If you interact with the plugins, for example if you press the "Like", the "+1", or the "Tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. This information will also be published on the relevant social network or on your Twitter account and will be visible to your contacts.
For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the providers, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy policies of the individual providers. If you do not want Google, Facebook or Twitter to show the relevant data they have collected on your respective profile, you must log out before activating the plugin with the appropriate service.
