We maintain an online presence on LinkedIn to present our company and our services and to communicate with customers / interested parties. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA.
In this respect, we would like to point out that there is a possibility that user data will be processed outside the European Union, in particular in the USA. This can result in increased risks for the user insofar as, for example, later access to the user data can be made more difficult. We also have no access to this user data. The possibility of access lies exclusively with LinkedIn. The LinkedIn Corporation is certified under the Privacy Shield and has thus committed itself to complying with European data protection standards

Linking social media via graphic or text link
We also advertise presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website that has a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. The user is only forwarded to the service of the respective social network by clicking on the corresponding graphic.
After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is recorded by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.
This is initially data such as the IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into their user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator can, if necessary, assign the information collected from the specific visit of the user to the user’s personal account. If the user interacts via a “share” button on the respective network, this information can be saved in the user’s personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the information collected from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
