IV. Use of third-party plug-ins (for example, social media plug-ins or online map service plug-ins)
The website includes so-called third-party plug-ins that allow you to use third-party functionalities offered on the website. The plug-ins are integrated on the website via a so-called “2-click solution”. With this solution, the respective plug-in is not activated directly when the website is called, but only when you activate the activation button for the respective plug-in.
Below you will find more detailed information:
1. Processing of personal data by providers of third-party plug-ins
The 2-click solution ensures that your Internet browser initially does not connect to servers of the provider of the respective plug-in when the website is accessed. When the website is called up, the provider of the respective plug-in cannot collect any personal data from you via the respective plug-in. The respective plug-in is activated only when you activate the button provided for activating the respective plug-in. As a result of the activation, a connection is made to servers of the provider of the respective plug-in. This allows the provider of the respective activated plug-in to collect personal data from you. Activation of the respective plug-in is technically comparable to clicking on a link to an external website, with the difference that the content called up does not appear in a new window / tab of your Internet browser but optically embedded in our website. The data exchange initiated by you through the activation and use of the plug-in takes place exclusively between your Internet browser and the servers of the provider of the respective plug-in. If you activate a third-party plug-in, you are therefore using a functionality offered by the provider of the respective plug-in, which is optically embedded in the presentation of our website.
When activating the respective plug-in, the provider of the respective plug-in (comparable to calling an external website via a link) can receive in particular your IP address as well as the address (URL) of the website from which you are activating. In addition, the provider of the respective activated plug-in can receive information from any cookies of the respective provider stored in your internet browser. The provider of the respective plug-in can thus at least receive the information that our website was called up under the IP address assigned to you at the time of the call by activating the respective plug-in. If you are registered as a user with the respective third-party provider, the provider of the respective plug-in can generally also assign the received data to your user account. We point out that we have no knowledge of the data collected specifically by the provider of the respective plug-in. In addition, we have no knowledge of the specific purpose of processing the data collected by the provider of the respective plug-in or other details of the data processing of the respective provider. In particular, we do not know whether the respective provider processes the data collected solely for the purpose of providing the functionality of the respective plug-in (eg for the sharing of specific content or the submission of comments) or, for any other purpose (eg Formation of user profiles or for the personalization of advertising).
2. Information about the social media plug-ins used
This website uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Incorporation, Mountain View, California, United States of America.
Any time you access a page of this website that contains functions of LinkedIn, a connection to LinkedIn’s servers is established.

We have to point out that we as the provider of the websites do not have any knowledge of the content of the transferred data and its use by LinkedIn.
