These user profiles are stored in cookies or other similar technologies (as set out above). In addition to the data collected when accessing the website (as set out above), we may collect information pertaining to the website you are using to visit us, the web pages that you visit while you are with us and, if applicable, any search terms you have been using to find our website.

8. Use of Social Media Plug-ins
Plug-ins of the social media networks facebook.com, Twitter and LinkedIn may be embedded in our web pages. The associated services are provided by the companies Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc. and LinkedIn Corporation respectively (providers).
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). For an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance, go to: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"). For an overview of the Twitter buttons and their appearance, go to: https://dev.twitter.com/web/tweet-button
LinkedIn is provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“LinkedIn”). For an overview of the LinkedIn plug-ins and their appearance, go to: https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins#
To increase the protection afforded to your data when you visit our web pages, these plug-ins are implemented as “2-click buttons”.” This form of integration ensures that, when accessing a page from within our website containing such plug-ins, you are not automatically connected to the providers’ servers. Only if you activate the plug-ins, thereby issuing a permission for data transmission, will the browser create a direct link to the providers’ servers. The content of the various plug-ins is then transmitted by the provider concerned directly to your browser and then displayed on your screen.
The plug-in tells the provider which of our website pages you have accessed. If, while viewing our website, you are logged into your Facebook , Twitter or LinkedIn user account, the provider is able to collate your interest, i.e. the information you are accessing, with your user account. On making use of any of the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, leaving a comment), this information too will be transmitted by the browser directly to the provider for retention.
Further information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, or Twitter or LinkedIn and on the rights and possibilities available to you for protecting your privacy in these circumstances can be found in the providers’ data protection/privacy advisories:
Data protection/privacy advisory issued by Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
Data protection/privacy advisory issued by Twitter: https://twitter.com/privacy
Data protection/privacy advisory issued by LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy
To avoid allowing Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn to link your visit of our website to your user account with these providers, you will need to log-off the respective user account prior to accessing our web pages.
