Social bookmarks
We have integrated so called Social bookmarks on our website such as Xing and LinkedIn. Social Bookmarks are internet bookmarks with which the users of such a service can collect links and news. These are only included on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the embedded graphic, you will be redirected to the respective provider's page and only then the user information will be transmitted to the respective provider. For information on how to deal with your personal data when using these websites, please refer to the respective data protection regulations of the providers.

Social Plug-Ins
Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") from the social network facebook.com, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The Plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or with the label "Facebook Social Plugin."

For these Plugins, we use a so-called two-click solution. When you visit our website, generally no personal data is shared with Facebook. Your browser creates a direct connection with the servers of Facebook only if you activate the Plugin.

The content of the Plugin is directly transmitted by Facebook to your browser and integrated by the browser into the website.

In so doing, personal information, including your IP address, URL, the date and time, as well as other browser-related information, is transmitted to Facebook and saved in the USA. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP is collected in Germany.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can attribute the visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with the Plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or writing a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook, saved there, and shared with your Facebook contacts, depending on your Facebook settings. If you do not want this, please log out of your Facebook account (before clicking the opt-in button).

Facebook saves your data as a user profile and uses this profile for the purposes of advertising, market research, and/or needs-based design of its website and other websites. In this process, Facebook uses cookies and similar technologies to display advertisements to you on Facebook services as well as outside of these services, irrespective of whether you have a Facebook account and are logged in. Facebook already uses cookies for this purpose when you visit the website www.facebook.com, and forwards this data to third parties.

We hereby declare that we, as the website provider, receive no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use from Facebook. You can prevent the installation of these cookies with the respective setting of your web browser by changing the settings such that all cookies from third party providers are rejected; we, however, would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the privacy policy of Facebook at www.facebook.com/about/privacy/, with specific information regarding Facebook Social Plugins at de-de.facebook.com/help/443483272359009/.

You can also change your Facebook privacy settings in your account settings.

Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting
Remarketing tags of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are integrated into our webpages. When you visit our webpages, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is created via the remarketing tags. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. Therefore, Facebook can attribute the visit to our webpages to your user account. We can use the information received in this manner for the display of Facebook ads. We hereby declare that we, as the website provider, receive no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use from Facebook. You can find more information on this in the privacy policy of Facebook at www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If you do not wish for data to be collected via Custom Audience, you can deactivate Custom Audiences here.
