  1. Social media plug-ins

We use plug-ins for the social media sites Xing, Kununu, LinkedIn and YouTube in order to publicize our company, on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The underlying promotional purpose is deemed a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The providers of the plug-ins are responsible for ensuring they operate in accordance with data protection regulations.

Whenever you use one of these plug-ins your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the provider concerned. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the webpage. This integration alerts the operator that your browser visited the page concerned, even if you do not have a profile with this provider or are not currently logged in to it. This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to a server belonging to the provider (these are generally located in the USA). If you are logged in to your account with the provider, the provider will be able to associate your visit to our website directly with your profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking a button or posting a comment, this information is also sent directly to a server belonging to the provider, where it is stored. The provider concerned may potentially publish this information on your profile or display it to your contacts.

If you would prefer the provider not to associate the data collected via our website with your profile on the social network concerned, you must log out of the relevant account before visiting our site.
