  • Social Plug-In – „Twitter“
    • Which personal data are collected and to what extent are they processed?
      On our website we have integrated a social plug-in of the social network “Twitter”, which is operated by the Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place Fenian Street, 2 Dublin, Ireland (“Twitter”). When you visit a page that contains such a plug-in, your browser automatically establishes a background connection to Twitter’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Twitter directly to your browser and is only integrated into our website. Through this integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has loaded a specific page of our website. This also applies if you do not have a Twitter profile or are not currently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Twitter server in Ireland and stored there. If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can assign the visit to our website directly to your Twitter profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or making a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information will also be posted on your Twitter profile and displayed to your Twitter contacts that you have enabled for this purpose.
    • Legal basis for the processing of personal data
      Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (if you have registered with “Twitter”) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (if you have not registered with Twitter). Insofar as the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, the legitimate interest of the site operator is to enable the user to interact with the content of the site operator on Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to assign the data collected through our website to your Twitter profile, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. The options for objection and erasure are also based on the general regulations on the right of objection and erasure under data protection law as described below in this privacy policy.
