They are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is active on this website, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other treaty states which are part of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional circumstances. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning website activities and to provide further services related to the use of the website and Internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to fully use all of the functions of this website in this case.

3. Use of social media plug-ins

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: LinkedIn and Facebook.

In doing so, we use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially forwarded to the plug-in provider in principle. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the highlighted field, thus activating it, will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online presence. Furthermore, the data mentioned in the last paragraph of this section will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection according to the respective provider in Secunda. By activating the plug-in, the personal data is transmitted from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the USA when dealing with US providers). As the plug-in provider primarily collects data via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed box using your browser's security settings.

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 or the storage periods. Furthermore, we do not have information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

The plug-in provider saves 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 particularly takes place (also for non-registered users) for the representation of appropriate advertising and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. However, 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 plug-ins is Art. 6, Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

The data is transmitted regardless 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 but especially before activating the button as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information concerning the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data privacy statements of these providers. They will also provide you with further information about your rights regarding this matter as well as setting options to protect your privacy.
