7. Social networks' plug-ins
Social networks’ plug-ins In our online offer we use plug-ins of various social networks; in this section we will describe them individually. When using plug-ins, your web browser creates a direct connection to the respective social network servers. This gives the operator the information that your internet browser has opened a page of our online offer even if you do not have a user account with the operator or are not currently logged in. Log files (including the IP address) are sent by your internet browser directly to the server of the respective operator, or are saved, where appropriate. The operator or its server may be located outside the EU or EEA (e.g., in the USA). These plug-ins represent independent extensions for social network operators. Therefore, we do not affect the volume of data collected and stored through these plug-ins by social network operators. The purpose and scope of collection, further processing and use of social network data, as well as the rights attached to it, and the privacy settings are specified in the social network’s privacy information. If you do not want social network operators to get and possibly store and further process your data through this online offer, you should not use these plug-ins.
7.1. Heise’s social network plug-ins with a two-click solution
By a two-click solution (provided by Heise Medien GmbH & Co. KG) we protect you from the fact that your visit to our website is monitored and evaluated by social network operators by default.
