The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these web pages, Google will previously shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Cocial plugins

In the case of digital offers, so-called social plugins may be used by the social networks Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Xing. These features allow you to share or recommend content with your friends on social networks.

When using these social plugins such as Facebook Like-Button, LinkedIn, Twitter or Xing, personal data can be collected from the respective social network as described below.

​

If you call up a digital offer in which a social plugin is integrated, the social network immediately establishes a direct connection with your browser. This gives the social network, among other things, the information that you have visited this website with your IP address / device ID. This happens regardless of whether you are currently logged in to the social network or registered at all.

​

If you are logged in to the respective social network at the same time, the social network automatically assigns your page request to your profile. Even if you activate the respective social plugins and, for example, recommend articles and content, the social network can assign this information to your profile. If you do not wish the social network to assign your visit to our web-sites to your respective user account, log out of the respective network when using our digital services.

​

We would like to point out that the data collected in connection with the social plugins is only exchanged between your browser and the operator of the social networks. We have no knowledge of the content of the collected and provided data. Against this background, we recommend that you read the current data protection information of the social network operators listed below.

​
