In our online offers we use so-called social plugins from various social networks; these are individually described in this section. During the usage of the plugins, your internet browser establishes a direct connection to the respective social networks’ servers. This way, the respective provider receives information that your internet browser has accessed from the respective site of our Online Offers, even if you do not have a user account with this provider or are currently not logged into this account. Log files (including the IP address) are, in this case, directly transmitted from your internet browser to a server of the respective provider and might be stored there. The provider or its server may be located outside the EU or the EEA (e.g., in the United States). The plugins are standalone extensions by social network providers. For this reason, we are unable to influence the scope of data collected and stored by them. Purpose and scope of the collection, the continued processing and usage of data by the social network as well as your respective rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found by consulting the respective social network's data protection notices.
In case you do not wish social network providers to receive and, if applicable, store or use data, you should not use the respective plugins.
