The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place using the so-called "Shariff solution", i.e. buttons are integrated, which correspond to the plug-ins, but without confirmation of the buttons no connection is established from your browser to the respective networks.Only when the button is actively pressed by you, is data processed according to the following points.

a) Facebook

On our website, we use social plugins (“plugins”) from social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, in order to make the use of our website more personal for you.The buttons are recognisable by the Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue background, with the terms “Like”, “Gefällt mir” or a “thumbs up” symbol) or are marked with the addition of “Facebook”.Thelist and appearance of Facebook buttons can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/pluginin/  

Google is certified for the Privacy Shield (EU U.S. Data Protection Convention) that provides a guarantee of compliance with European data protection legislation.

With the Shariff solution, buttons are shown according to the respective social plug-ins, with the difference that when calling our webpages with the buttons shown no connection from your browser with Facebook is made.A script retrieves how many times a page has already been shared or liked.It contacts the Facebook programming interfaces (APIs) and retrieves the numbers.For this reason, only the server address is transferred to Facebook (not your IP address).Only if you actively press the Facebook button, e.g. to share content, will a connection be established from your browser to the Facebook servers.This gives Facebook the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our website.This information (including your IP address) is then transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the US and stored there.If you are also logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly allocate your visit to our website to your Facebook account.Facebook can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and design of the Facebook pages in line with demand.To this end, Facebook profiles are created to provide additional services associated with the use of Facebook.To prevent Facebook from receiving data about you via our website that can be assigned to your Facebook account, log out of Facebook before using the Facebook button.
