– Transient Cookies (see 3.3.2)

– Persistent Cookies (see 3.3.3).

3.3.2 Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes in particular the session cookies.

4. Use of Facebook and Instagram

4.1 We currently use Facebook and Instagram as social media plug-ins. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the providers of the plug-in via the button with the Facebook and Instagram logo, respectively. Only if you click on it, the plug-in provider will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under point 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. According to Facebook, the IP address in Germany is made anonymous immediately after it is collected. By activating the plug-in, your personal data will be transferred to Facebook and stored there (in the USA). Since the plug-in providers collect data via cookies in particular, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the logo using your browser’s security settings.

4.2 We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

4.3 The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4.4 Data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

4.5 Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in providers can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers notified below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy:
