4 Newsletter

We inform you about us and our services in our newsletter. If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require, in addition to your name, a valid email address and information that enables us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner of the email address has given his/her consent to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected. This data is only used to send the newsletter and is not shared with third parties. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the date on which you subscribed. This data is stored solely to provide evidence in the event that a third party misuses an email address and subscribes to the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised person. You can withdraw your consent to the storage of the data and your email address and their use for the purposes of sending the newsletter at any time. To withdraw your consent or unsubscribe from the newsletter, you can click a link in the newsletter itself.

5 Social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. We use the so-called two-click solution for these plug-ins. This means that, when you visit our website, no personal data is transmitted to the providers of the plug-ins in the first instance. The plug-in provider can be identified by the branding on the box around its initial letter or its logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only if you click the marked field and activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online presence. In addition, the data specified in Paragraph 3 of this Statement will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, IP addresses are anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, your personal data will be transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the USA in the case of US providers). Since the plug-in provider collects data, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies in the security settings of your browser before clicking the greyed-out box.
(2) We have no influence on the data collected and the processing of this data, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing or the retention periods. We also have no information regarding the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is conducted in particular (even if users are not logged in) in order to display needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles; to exercise it, you must contact the respective plug-in provider. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our service and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6(1f) GDPR.
(4) The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged into it. If you are logged into the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be directly associated with 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 regularly logging out after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent you from being associated with your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in providers, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers, which are listed below. These statements also contain further information on your rights in this context and the configuration options to protect your privacy.

7 Embedding YouTube videos

(1) We have embedded YouTube videos in our online presence. These videos are hosted at www.youtube.com and can be played directly on our website.

(2) When you visit the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified in Article 3 of this Statement will be transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged into or if such a user account is non-existent. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and utilises them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is conducted in particular (even if users are not logged in) in order to support needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts in your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you use must establish a connection to Google’s servers. Google is thereby informed that our website has been accessed from your IP address.
