5. linking social media via graphic or text link
We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection to the respective server of the social network being automatically established when a website with a social media application is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user redirected to the service of the respective social network.
After forwarding the user, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be excluded that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.
These are initially data such as IP address, date, time and visited page. If, in the meantime, the user is logged into his user account for the respective network, the network operator may be able to assign the information collected on the user’s specific visit to the user’s personal account. If the user interacts via a “share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user’s personal user account and published if necessary. If the user wants to prevent the information collected from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:

The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform and allows users to share photos and videos and also to disseminate such data in other social networks.
The operating company of Instagram’s services is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
Each time the data subject accesses any of the individual pages of this Internet site operated by the data controller on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the relevant Instagram component to download a representation of the relevant component of Instagram. This technical process allows Instagram to know which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged on to Instagram at the same time, Instagram will recognize which specific subpage the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the person concerned. If the person concerned presses one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our Internet site, the data and information transmitted with it is assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram will receive information through the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to Instagram, the data subject can prevent the transmission by logging out of his/her Instagram account before accessing our website.
