2. Cookies and Targeting

2.1 We also collect information about your use of our website through the use of browser cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your data carriers and which store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data is sent, information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies allow our systems to recognize the user’s device and make any preferences available immediately. When a user accesses the platform, a cookie is sent to the hard drive of the user’s computer.

2.2 The cookies we use only store information about your use of the website. This is not done by assigning you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie (“Cookie ID”). The cookie ID is not merged with your name, IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you.

2.3 If you do not wish to use browser cookies, you can set your browser so that the storage of cookies is not accepted. Please note that in this case you may only be able to use our website to a limited extent or not at all. If you only want to accept our own cookies, but not the cookies of our service providers and partners, you can select the setting in your browser “Block third-party cookies”.

3. Use of social media plug-ins

3.1 We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+ and Xing.  We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the mark on the box above his 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 marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online service. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is made anonymous immediately after collection, according to information provided by the respective providers in Germany. When the plug-in is activated, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

3.2 We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also do not have any information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

3.3 The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the customized design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented 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, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity 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 the plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

3.4 The data transfer takes place 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 by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates it publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid being assigned to your profile by the plug-in provider.

3.5 Further information on the purpose and extent of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
