Use of social media plugins

Two-click social media buttons
We implemented a two-click solution for the buttons “Like” (Facebook), “tweet” (Twitter) and “+1” (Google) on our websites. In order to use these buttons on one of our websites, you first have to enable the respective grey button at the bottom of the page to establish a connection to the social network of your choice (first click). Only then can you use social media buttons and like or recommend post or articles (second click). What happens once you enable social media buttons depends on the social network you activated. Find an overview below:

Facebook

After activating the Facebook button, Facebook is notified that a user with a certain IP address (the IP address is the address of your device) is using our website. If you are simultaneously logged into Facebook, your visit of our website is linked to your Facebook account. Information on the purposes, scope, further processing and use of data collected by Facebook as well as on user rights can be found in the Facebook Data Policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php. Please note that the default settings do not provide for appropriate data protection and that you are advised to individually change your privacy settings.

Twitter

After activating the Twitter button, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Twitter server. The Twitter server then collects the data necessary to run the plugin on our website. Furthermore, data containing information on your visit of our website is transferred to Twitter. If you click on the tweet button and are simultaneously logged into your Twitter account, contents of our page will be linked on your Twitter profile. Twitter can then locate that you are currently using our website. If you click on the follow button, this will also be linked to your profile as well as to the profile of the person you want to follow. Find more information on the function of the follow button at https://help.twitter.com/en/using-twitter/following-faqs. Information on the purposes, scope, further processing and use of data collected by Twitter as well as on user rights can be found in the Twitter Privacy Policy at https://twitter.com/en/privacy. You can change your data protection settings in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.

Google +1

After activating the +1 button, according to the Google Buttons Policy, Google collects certain data about the website visit of the user for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. According to Google, data are not stored according to individual profiles, user names or URLs and are erased after two weeks. If you click on the +1 button and are simultaneously logged into Google+, Google collects information on the URL recommended by you, your IP address as well as other browser-related information via your Google profile in order to save +1 recommendations and make them publicly accessible. Google data protection information on the +1 button, detailed information on the collection, transfer and use of data through Google as well as on user rights and profile settings can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html.
