Use of social plug-ins via Shariff
To keep you in control of your data, privacy-safe Shariff buttons are used on these web pages to integrate the sharing functions of the social media services. Without your explicit consent, no links to the servers of the social networks will be established and consequently no data will be transmitted. Shariff is a development of the specialists of the computer magazine c\'t. It allows more privacy on the net and replaces the usual \"Share\"-buttons of social networks. More information about the Shariff project http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
If you click on the buttons, a pop-up window appears in which you can log in to the respective provider with your data. Only after this active login by you a direct connection to the social networks is 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 the information that you have visited our Internet pages 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.
