6. Social media plug-ins:
We use social plug-ins of the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social networks on our website on the basis of Art.6 para. 1 s.1 lit. f GDPR to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest in the sense of the GDPR. The responsibility for data protection compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place by means of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.
On our website, social media plug-ins from Facebook are used to make their use more personal. For this we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offer from Facebook. If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. Through the integration of the plug-in, Facebook receives the 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 in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted 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 the design of Facebook pages to meet your needs. For this purpose, 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 assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

10. Integration of third-party services and content
It can happen that within our online offer contents or services of third-party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites are integrated. The integration of content from third party providers always requires that the third-party providers are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content may set their own cookies and process the users' data for their own purposes. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as sparingly and as far as possible to avoid data loss and will select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.
The following presentation offers an overview of third-party providers and their contents, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, the possibility of objection (so-called opt-out):
