Privacy for social media

Notice regarding the transmission of data to the USA

The data provided will be processed within the European Union and the USA. Please note that we have agreed EU standard data protection clauses with the recipients of your data for states without an adequacy decision from the Commission under Article 45 GDPR, as is the case for the USA, (such as Google, Salesforce, Adobe). Please note: the protection of your personal data in the USA does not correspond to the privacy level required by the EU. Specifically, there are no enforceable rights that protect your data against access by government agencies. There is therefore the risk that these governmental agencies may be able to access personal data without the data transmitter or the recipient being able to effectively prevent this.

Specific forms of social media

Facebook plugins (Like & Share button)

Plugins of the Social network Facebook are embedded in this website. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.

You can identify Facebook plugins on this website by the Facebook logo or the ‘Like’ button. An overview of the Facebook plugins is available here:

When you visit this website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This notifies Facebook that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you click the Facebook ‘Like’ button whilst logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content on this website with your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to attribute the visit to this website to your user account. Please note that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or how they are used by Facebook.

For more information, see the privacy policy of Facebook at:


If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to this website with your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook.

Facebook plugins are used on the basis of Art. 6(1f) GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in achieving as much visibility as possible on social media platforms. Where corresponding consent has been asked for, processing will take place solely on the basis of Art. 6(1A) GDPR; consent may be revoked at any time.

Data transmission to the USA will take place on the basis of the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission and Art. 49 GDPR.
