Integration of third-party services and content

Within our online offer, we set the content or service offerings of Third-party providers to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (referred to below uniformly as “Content”).

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party vendors can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” allow information to be analysed on the pages of this website.

Using Facebook social plugins

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1)), we use social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text posts) and are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “like,” “like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are with the addition “Facebook Social plugin.” The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

When a user calls a feature of this online offering that contains such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. Facebook transmits the content of the plugin directly to the user’s device and integrates it into the online offering. User profiles of users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge.

By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and settings to protect the privacy of users in this regard, can be taken from Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them through this online offer and link it to their member data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and Delete cookies.
