Embedded Content

Social plugins for various online social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube) are integrated into our Websites. These allow you to place bookmarks on these sites and share them with other members of the online social networks. You can recognize social plugins by means of the logos that can be seen on the websites of the online social networks.

If you call up a webpage containing these social plugins on our Websites, a direct connection is established with the servers of the online social network and from there the plugin image (which is now visible to you) and associated functions are communicated directly to your browser, which integrates them into the layout of our Website. If you are logged into the online social network under your username and password at this point, the fact that you are visiting our Website is communicated to the said network and information to this effect can be assigned to your user account.

When you interact with the social plugins, for example, if you share one of our Websites or use the Facebook “Like” or “Share” or the Twitter “Tweet This” function, the content of our Website will be linked with your profile within the online social network. If you are not a member of the online social network or have logged out from these providers before visiting our Website, there is still a possibility that at least your IP address will be communicated and stored there.
