Social-Media-Plugins with Shariff
This website uses plugins from social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr).
As a rule, you can recognize the plugins by means of the respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we use these plugins only together with the so-called “Shariff” solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on this website from transmitting data to the respective provider the first time they enter the site.
Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking on the corresponding button, a direct connection to the server of the provider is established (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you are simultaneously in your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) registered, the respective provider can assign the visit to this website to your user account.
Activating the plugin provides consent in the sense of art. 6 abs. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

Plugins of the social network Facebook are integrated on this website. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. According to Facebook, however, the collected data will also be transferred to the USA and other third countries.
The Facebook plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on this website. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE.
When you visit this website, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the Plugin. Facebook receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address.

This allows Facebook to assign the visit to this website to your user account.

This allows YouTube to connect to the Google DoubleClick network, regardless of whether you’re watching a video.
Once you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server will be informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile.

In addition, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is provided to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, after the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations can be triggered.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art.6 abs. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of type.6 abs. 1 lit. a GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.
