11. Social Plugins

Within the job portal we enable the use of social plugins. For data protection reasons, we do not integrate any social media plugins directly into our website. Therefore, when you access our pages, no data is transferred to social media services such as Facebook or LinkedIn.

However, you have the option of activating and using the social plugins integrated on our websites. For this purpose, we use a solution which means that in a first step, all data and functions required for the display of the social plugin are provided by our web server. Only when you decide to activate the respective social plugin and click on the corresponding preview image or symbol, your browser will establish a connection to the servers of the operator of the respective social media service in a second step.

When you activate a plugin, the social media service receives your IP address in particular, as well as information about your visit to our websites. This happens regardless of whether you have an account with the respective social media service. If you are logged in, the data can be assigned directly to your social media profile.

Overall, we have no influence on whether and to what extent the respective social media service processes personal data after activation. However, it is likely that the social media service will create user profiles from your data and use them for the purpose of personalized advertising. Furthermore, your data will be used to inform other users of the social media service about your activities on our websites.

The embedding takes place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, provided that you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image.

If you no longer wish your personal data to be processed by the activated social plug-ins, you can prevent future processing by no longer clicking on the preview image or symbol of the respective social plugin. Text
