Data Protection policy for the use of Instagram social plugins
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”. When you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram can immediately assign your visit to our website with your Instagram account. When you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Instagram” button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts. For the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Instagram, as well as your rights and privacy settings in connection with this, please refer to Instagram’s Data Policy:
https://privacycenter.instagram.com.
