Use of Social Plug-ins
Our Facebook and YouTube pages are for active communications with our customers and prospective customers. We provide information about our products and services, along with special campaigns and events, on these sites. Our website uses social network plug-ins.
The integration of social plug-ins and the data processing associated with this serves the purpose of optimising the advertising for our products. The integration of social plug-ins involves a connection between your computer and the servers of the service provider of the social network which then instructs your web browser to display the plug-in on that web page, provided you have expressly consented to this. In this process, both your IP address as well as the information on which web pages you have visited will be transmitted to the provider’s servers. This happens regardless of whether you are registered with or logged into the social network. The information is transferred even if users are not registered or logged in. Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the collected information may also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by pressing the appropriate button), this information will also be assigned to your user account. You can therefore prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before activating the button for your social media accounts. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(a) GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.
The following social networks are integrated in our website through social plug-ins. You can find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of collection and use of the data and your associated rights and options for protecting your privacy in the provider’s privacy policy via the link.

If you need help, such as for requests for information, please contact us. However, please note that questions about the processing of data or the assertion of user rights are best sent directly to the providers of the relevant platforms, because only they have access to the data.
