6. Social Media Plug-ins
We use social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook, Xing and LinkedIn on our website on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 letter f GDPR to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method around visitors of our web page in the best possible way to protect.

a) Facebook
Our website uses Facebook social media plug-ins to personalize their use. This is an offer from Facebook. When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers.
The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. When you interact with the plug-ins, the information is also sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages.
To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) of Facebook.

b) Xing
Plug-ins from Xing are integrated on our website. You can recognize the Xing plug-ins by the Xing logo on our site. When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Xing server. Xing receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Xing button while logged into your Xing account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Xing profile. This allows Xing to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted or how it is used by Xing. If you do not want Xing to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Xing account.

c) LinkedIn
Plug-ins from LinkedIn are integrated on our website. You can recognize the LinkedIn plug-ins by the LinkedIn logo on our site.
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our pages on your LinkedIn profile.
Thus, LinkedIn can assign the visit of our pages to your user account.

7. Your rights as a data subject

As far as your personal data are processed during your visit to our website, you as "concerned person" have the following rights within the meaning of the GDPR:

7.1 Helpdesk
You may request information from us as to whether your personal data is processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information would violate the duty of confidentiality pursuant to ยง 57 para. 1 StBerG or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of a predominant legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in confidentiality, especially considering impending damages. Furthermore, the right to information is excluded if the data are only stored because they may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or serve exclusively purposes of data protection or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organizational measures. If in your case the right to information is not excluded and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:

Purpose of the processing:
Categories of personal data processed by you,
Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period,
the existence of a right to rectification, deletion or limitation of the processing of personal data concerning you or a right of opposition to such processing,
the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority,
if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data,
the existence of automated decision making, including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision making,
if necessary, in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission has decided on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR, information on the appropriate guarantees provided for the protection of personal data pursuant to Art. 46 para. 2 GDPR.

7.2 Correction and completion

If you find that we have incorrect personal data from you, you can ask us to correct this incorrect data immediately. In the case of incomplete personal data concerning you, you may request the completion.

7.3 Erasure

You have a right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"), provided that the processing is not necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to information or to fulfil a legal obligation or to perform a task which is in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
The basis of justification for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have revoked.
You have filed an objection to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public.
You have objected to the processing of personal data not made public by us and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing.
Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.
There is no claim for deletion if deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort in the case of legal, non-automated data processing due to the special type of storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.

7.4 Restriction of processing

You may request us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:
You deny the accuracy of your personal data. In this case, the restriction may be required for the duration that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
The processing is unlawful and instead of deletion you request the restriction of the use of your personal data.
We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
You have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. The restriction of processing may be required as long as it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

7.5 Data portability

You have a right to data transferability, provided that the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a contracting party and the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In this case, the right to data transfer includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons:
You can ask us to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format.
You have the right to pass this data on to another person responsible without hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another person responsible.

7.6 Disagreement

If the processing is based on Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter e) GDPR (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) or letter f) GDPR.
After exercising the right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You may at any time object to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.
You have the option of informing our company informally of your objection by telephone, e-mail, fax or to the postal address listed at the beginning of this privacy policy.

7.7 Revocation of consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of the consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address. The legality of the data processing, which is based on the consent until receipt of the revocation, is not affected by the revocation. After receipt of the revocation the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, is stopped.

7.8 Grievance

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for the place of the alleged infringement.

8. Data security

We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256-bit encryption.
If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
