Social plugins:

On our websites social plugins of the providers listed below are used. You can identify these plugins by their logo.

These plugins may be used to send information, including personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transfer of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to use a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only by activating the plugin will the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider be started. A collection of personal data by means of a social plugin or via its use does not take place by IC3.

We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. It must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and that at least the IP address and device-related information is recorded and used. There is also the possibility that service providers may attempt to store cookies on the device used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out what specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook or LinkedIn at the same time, Facebook or LinkedIn can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

Data security:

We maintain current technical and organisational measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from risks during data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge of it. These measures are always adapted to the current state of the art.

We would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can be subject to security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Changes to the privacy policy:

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy from time to time in accordance with statutory provisions.
