Social Plug-ins / Social Networks:
To make our web presence more attractive for our users and also easier to use, we collaborate with selected cooperation partners (e.g. Facebook, Google, Xing, Twitter, Myspace, etc.). These platforms can be integrated into our website through social plugins (“plugins”) that are identifiable by the displayed logos.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the external cooperation partner. This is done primarily to display the plugin content. The external cooperation partner directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the plugin content into the website. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of data collected by the respective plugins. For this reason, we would like to inform you according to our present state of knowledge:
The cooperation partner regularly identifies your IP address and other device-related data. In addition, the cooperation partner receives the information that a user with this specific IP address is visiting our website at this moment. If you are logged into your user account at the relevant external cooperation partner at the same time, the cooperation partner can associate the visit of our website with your user account. If you do not want this information to be associated with your user account, you must log off from the relevant provider before visiting our website.
