10. Social Media Plug-ins

We use the following social media plug-ins on our website to give you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users and thus to make the use of our website more interesting for you and improve it on a regular basis. Furthermore, the use of social plug-ins is intended to raise our profile. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the aforementioned purposes.

We use following social plug-ins:

  • We use the “Like button” of Facebook. This plug-in is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. You may recognise it through the corresponding Facebook logo. Further information related to Facebook social plug-ins under: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
  • We use the “+1” button of Google+. This plug-in is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You may recognize it through the corresponding Google logo. Further information related to Google social plug-ins under: http://www.google.com/support/plus/?hl=en.
  • We use the “Tweet” button of Twitter. This plug-in is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA. You may recognize it through the corresponding Twitter logo. Further information related to Twitter social plug-ins under: https://dev.twitter.com/web/overview.
  • We use the “Recommend” button of LinkedIn. This plug-in is operated by LinkedIn Inc., 2029 Stierlin Ct, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You may recognize it through the corresponding LinkedIn logo. Further information related to LinkedIn social plug-ins under: https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins.
  • We use the “Share” button of Xing. This plug-in is operated by Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg. You may recognize it through the corresponding Xing logo. Further information related to Xing social plug-ins under: https://dev.xing.com/plugins.

We use “Shariff” to that effect:

Since personal data is already transferred to the social networks when using the usual plug-ins without interaction with the corresponding social plug-in, we have implemented the “Shariff” solution for the social plug-ins.

Using “Shariff” you will be able to decide yourself whether and when data is transmitted to the operator of the respective social network. When you visit our website, no data is transmitted to the social networks.

Only when you click on one of the buttons, a connection is established between your browser and the servers of the corresponding social network and data will be transmitted to them. The plug-in provider receives and stores data (in particular the IP address) that allows it to recognize which page of our internet presence was called up by the user. When the user clicks on a plug-in, the corresponding information is transferred to the respective plug-in provider and stored there. If the user is logged in at the same time in his personal account, the forwarded data can be assigned to the specific account.

The plug-in provider uses the personal data collected from you for purposes of advertisement, market research and/or adaptation of its internet presence, in particular for targeted advertising. The respective provider is responsible for data protection-compliant operation.

Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn also process your personal data in the USA and have submitted to the EU-US Privacy-Shield, which ensures compliance with the data protection regulations applicable in the EU, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

The type, scope, purposes of the collection, use and further processing and use of the data by the respective plug-in providers as well as the rights and setting options for the protection of the user’s privacy, can be read and adapted in the data protection information of the plug-in providers.

11. Marketing-Tools

Google AdWords Conversion-Tracking

We use the offer of Google AdWords using the so-called conversion tracking. These are services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"), which serve to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. Our purpose is to show you advertisements that may be of your interest, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the aforementioned purposes.

These advertising media are delivered by Google through so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google and us to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the AdWords customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each AdWords customer is assigned to a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; we are unable to identify users on the basis of this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called the corresponding site of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are logged in with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:

  • by disabling cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, which is deleted when you delete your cookies; as well as
  • by adjusting your browser settings, e.g. you can refuse the acceptance of cookies as a whole, of third-party cookies (cookies that are set by a third party, i.e. not by the actual internet presence on which you are currently) or of individual cookies or delete them.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA and submits to the EU-US Privacy-Shield, which ensures compliance with the data protection regulations applicable in the EU, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

You may find further information concerning terms of use and data protection under www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Google AdWords Remarketing

This website also uses the online marketing tool Google AdWords Remarketing, a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google AdWords Remarketing uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant and tailored to users by using a pseudonymous cookie ID. Google uses the cookie ID to record which ads are placed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. The purpose is to display advertisements that may be of your interest in order to make our website more attractive to you. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the aforementioned purposes.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:

  • by disabling cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, which is deleted when you delete your cookies; as well as
  • by adjusting your browser settings, e.g. you can refuse the acceptance of cookies as a whole, of third-party cookies (cookies that are set by a third party, i.e. not by the actual internet presence on which you are currently) or of individual cookies or delete them.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA and submits to the EU-US Privacy-Shield, which ensures compliance with the data protection regulations applicable in the EU, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

You may find further information concerning terms of use and data protection under www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) under http://www.networkadvertising.org.

12. Data retention period

The personal data retention period depends on the respective legal requirements (e.g. commercial and tax retention periods). If the legal retention periods have expired, we will delete the respective personal data as long and as far as the personal data is not necessary for the contract fulfilment or contract initiation or we no longer have a legitimate interest in the storage.

13. Additional date transfer

(1) In some cases, we use external hosting service providers to process your data and to provide this website. These have been carefully selected by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked. The legal basis is Art. 28 GDPR.

(2) In addition, we only transfer your personal data to third parties in the following cases:

  • if you have given us express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, or
  • if a legal obligation exists according to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c GDPR, e.g. in the context of criminal prosecution or
  • the transfer according to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is necessary for the purpose of asserting or defending legal claims or exercising rights, and it is not to be assumed that the transfer is contrary to an overriding worthy of protection interest of the person concerned.
