1.10. Social Plug-ins
1.10.1. Social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of social networks are used on our Sites, in particular the “Share” or “Share with friends” button of Facebook, whose website facebook.com is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for facebook.com in Europe. The plug-ins are usually marked with a Facebook logo.
1.10.2. Besides Facebook, we use plug-ins from ˝Google+˝ (provider: Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), ˝Twitter˝ (provider: Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103) and “Pinterest” (provider: Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street San Francisco, CA 94103, USA).
1.10.3. By clicking on the respective button (e.g. ˝Pass on˝, ˝Share˝ or ˝Share with friends˝) you agree that your browser will produce a link to the respective social network’s servers and transmit usage data to the respective operator of the social network and vice versa. We have no influence upon the nature and extent of the data that is then gathered by the social networks.
1.10.4. The social network provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its site. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our Site. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
1.10.5. The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
1.10.6. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
