(2)       In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk by the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the user that places the cookie (here by us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.

(3)       Use of cookies:

a)        This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

                        •          Transient cookies (see b),

•          Persistent cookies (see c).

b)        Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser. This particularly includes the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, that can assign different requests of your browser to the joint session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

c)         Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

d)        You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and refuse to accept third party cookies or any cookies, for example. Please note that you may not be able to use all functions of our website.

 

5.                    Data security

(1)       We use the common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser when you visit our website. 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.

(2)       We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

 

6.         Links

If you use external links that are offered on our website, this data protection declaration does not extend to those links. When we provide links, we endeavour to ensure that they also comply with our data protection and security standards. However, we have no influence on compliance with data protection and security regulations by other providers. Therefore, please also inform yourself about the data protection declarations provided on the websites of other providers.

 

7.         Use of social media plug-ins

(1)       We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Xing, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our page, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its 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, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned in section 4 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection, according to the respective provider in Germany. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box using your browser's security settings.

(2)       We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We neither have information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

(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 demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for no-logged-in users) for the representation of suitable advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility 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 sentence 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation.

(4)       The data is passed on 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 with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5)       Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers notified below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
