5. facebook social plug-ins
So-called social plug-ins of the company Facebook Inc. are integrated on our website. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the "Like" button (the hand with the thumb raised) or by a clear "Facebook Plug-in" label. A social plugin is a small part of Facebook that is integrated into our site. Each plug-in has its own function. The most commonly used functions are the familiar "Like" and "Share" buttons.
The following social plug-ins are offered by Facebook:
- "Save" button
- "Like" button, share, send and quote
- Page plug-in
- Messenger plug-in
- Embedded contributions and video players
- Group plug-in
At https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins you will receive more detailed information on how to use the individual plug-ins. We use the social plug-ins on the one hand to offer you a better user experience on our site, on the other hand because Facebook can use them to optimize our ads.
If you have a Facebook account or facebook.com have visited Facebook before, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our site or interact with social plug-ins (e.g. the "Like" button).
The information received will be deleted or made anonymous within 90 days. According to Facebook, this data includes your IP address, which website you visited, the date, time and other information concerning your browser.
In order to prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it with Facebook data, you must log off (log out) from Facebook during your visit to the website.
If you are not logged in to Facebook or do not have a Facebook account, your browser sends less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. However, data such as your IP address or which website you visit may be sent to Facebook. We would like to point out that we do not know the exact content of the data. However, according to our current state of knowledge, we try to inform you as well as possible about data processing. How Facebook uses the data can also be found in the company's data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update read up.
6. google maps

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our
online offers and easy findability of the locations we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
We have included features from Instagram on our website. Instagram is a social media platform of the company Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is part of the Facebook products. The embedding of Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This allows us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit web pages on our website that have an Instagram feature embedded, data is transferred to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data is therefore processed across all Facebook companies.
In the following, we want to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data is involved and how you can largely control the data processing. Since Instagram is part of Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram policies on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data policies themselves on the other.
What is Instagram?
Instagram is one of the most popular social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the benefits of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. On "Insta" (as many users casually call the platform) you can upload photos and short videos, edit them with different filters and also distribute them in other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can also just follow other interesting users.
Why do we use Instagram on our website?
Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And, of course, we too have reacted to this boom. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That's why a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. The embedded Instagram functions allow us to enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be used for personalized advertising on Facebook. This way, our ads are only shown to people who are really interested in our products or services.
Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not identify you personally.
What data does Instagram store?
If you come across one of our sites that has Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) built in, your browser will automatically connect to Instagram's servers. Data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. This is regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, your computer, purchases made, advertisements you see and how you use our services. We also record the date and time of your interaction with Instagram. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores much more information about you.
Facebook differentiates between customer data and event data. We assume that this is the case with Instagram. Customer data includes, for example, name, address, phone number and IP address. It is important to note that this customer data is only submitted to Instagram after you have been "hashed". Hashing means that a data set is transformed into a string. This allows you to encrypt the contact information. In addition, the "event data" mentioned above is also transmitted. By "event data" Facebook - and consequently Instagram - understands data about your user behavior. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The contact data collected will be compared with the data that Instagram already has about you.
Via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser, the collected data are transmitted to Facebook. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.
We assume that data processing at Instagram works the same way as on Facebook. This means: if you have an Instagram account or have visited www.instagram.com, Instagram has at least one cookie set. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram feature. After 90 days (after matching) at the latest, this data is deleted or anonymized. Although we have studied Instagram's data processing, we cannot say exactly what data Instagram collects and stores.
In the following we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an instagram function (such as a button or an Insta image). In our test we assume that you do not have an Instagram account. Of course, if you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will be set in your browser.
For integration and display of video content our website uses plugins from YouTube. The video portal is provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When a page with an integrated YouTube plug-in is called, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have called up.
YouTube can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile, if you are logged in to your YouTube account. By logging out you have the possibility to prevent this.
YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
We use features on this website from Twitter, a social network operated by Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Ireland.
This means that personal data can also be transferred to Twitter. We do not monitor this data exchange and do not store anything about it.
If you have an account on Twitter, you can change your privacy settings in the account settings at https://twitter.com/settings/account.
We use buttons and widgets of the social media network Pinterest, the company Pinterest Inc.,808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA on our site.
By calling up pages that use such functions, data (IP address, browser data, date and time, cookies) are transmitted to Pinterest, stored and evaluated.
