IV. Linking to social media via graphics or text links

We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network.

The user is only forwarded to the service of the respective social network by clicking on the corresponding graphic.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is recorded by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.

First of all, this includes data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network, the network operator may be able to assign the information collected from the specific visit of the user to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a “Share” button on the respective network, this information can be saved in the user's personal user account and published if necessary. If the user wants to prevent the information collected from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. There is also the option of configuring the respective user account accordingly.
