With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, the users and data subjects have the right

Twitter social plug-in

We use the Twitter social network plug-in on our website. Twitter is an internet service of Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, hereinafter only referred to as "Twitter". Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield guarantees Twitter that EU data protection rules will be respected even when processing data in the US. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence. If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our Internet presence that you visit, your Internet browser will download a representation of the plug-in from the servers of Twitter in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Twitter to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded. If you are logged on to Twitter while visiting one of our websites equipped with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in during your specific visit will be recognised by Twitter. Twitter may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the so-called "share" button on Twitter, this information will be stored in your Twitter user account and published on the Twitter platform. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Twitter before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your Twitter user account. Twitter keeps further information about the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the sections on accessible data protection information.
