6. Social Plugins

We use so-called Social-Media-Buttons (also Social-Media-Plugins) on our website. These are small buttons that allow you to publish content from our website on social networks under your profile.

If you activate such a button, a connection will be established between our website and the social network. In addition to the relevant content, the operator of the social network receives further information, some of which is personal. This includes, for example, the fact that you are currently visiting our site.

The social media buttons are integrated using the so-called Shariff solution. This solution developed by Heise and c’t prevents a connection to a social network from being established just because you call up a page with a social media button without activating it. This means that information is not sent to the social network until you use the button.

We use the following social media plugins:

a) Facebook Sharing of Facebook Ireland Limited

In some cases, information is transmitted to the parent company Facebook Inc. based in the USA. This complies with the data protection regulations of the “US Privacy Shield” and is registered with the “US Privacy Shield” program of the US Department of Commerce.
