16. Verwendung von Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins, e.g. from LinkedIn. The plugins are marked with the provider’s logo.
When you call up a website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the provider’s computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the offering site and integrated into the website by the browser. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are logged in to the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins – for example, by clicking the “Like” button or posting a comment – the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there.
If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out from the provider before visiting our website. Even when you are logged out, the providers collect anonymised data via the social plugins and set a cookie for you. If you log in to the provider at a later time, this data can be assigned to your profile.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the provider’s data protection information:
- LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy
- Facebook Ireland Ltd: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation
If you do not want the providers to collect data about you via these cookies, you can select the function “Block third-party cookies” in your browser settings. Then the browser will not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, other functions of our website may also no longer work.
