5. Social Plugins

In our website we use so-called social plugins from LinkedIn. They are described below in this section.
When using plugins, the Internet browser creates a direct connection to the server of the respective social networks. From here, the respective provider receives the information accessed by your Internet browser from the respective website – even if you do not have a user account with this provider or are not currently logged into your account. Log files (including the IP address) are, in this case, transmitted directly from your Internet browser to a server of the respective provider and may be stored there. The provider or its server may be located outside the EU or EEA (e.g. in the United States).

Plugins are extensions of social network providers. For this reason, we are unable to influence the scope of the data collected and stored by them.
The purpose and scope of the social network’s ongoing collection, processing and use of data, as well as your rights and the settings for protecting your privacy, can be found by consulting the relevant notes on data protection of the social network.
If you do not want social network providers to receive and, if applicable, store or use the data, do not use the respective plugins.
