Use of social plug-ins via "Shariff"

We use social network plug-ins on our website. We use the privacy-safe "Shariff" button so that you retain control of your data.

No links to the servers of the social networks will be established and consequently no data will be transmitted without your express consent.

"Shariff" is a development by the specialists at the computer magazine c't. It enables more privacy on the web and replaces the usual "share" buttons on social networks. More information on the Shariff project can be found here https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html .

If you click on the button, a pop-up window appears in which you can log in to the respective provider with your data. Only after you have actively logged in will a direct connection to the social networks be established.

By logging in, you give your consent to the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. Among other things, both your IP address and information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the information collected will also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons. The social networks named below are integrated using the “Shariff” function.

You can find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of the collection and use of the data as well as on your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy in the linked data protection notices of the providers.
