Social Media Services
We provide you with certain social media services, in particular the sharing of product information on Facebook, Instagram, etc. The relevant services can be found on the individual product pages under the heading “Sharing” or in the apps under profile. Our purpose to advertise our site and products is to be regarded as a legitimate interest. By implementing special share buttons etc, we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. We provide social media services for the following social networks:
- Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA,
You can recognize the provider of the relevant icon by its initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the network provider via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. Only then, the data referred to under «When visiting our website» will be transmitted.
When you click on the relevant social network icons, you will be linked to the relevant social network to perform the chosen service, e.g. to share content on Facebook or to Instagram. To do this, however, you must log into your corresponding user account or be logged in already. If you select one of the services provided and click on the icon of the relevant social network, a direct connection is established between your browser and the server of the relevant social network. This gives the network the information that you have visited our website with your IP address and accessed the link.
If you access a link to a network while logged in to your account on the relevant network, the contents of our page may be linked to your profile in the network, which means that the network can link your visit to our website directly to your user account. If you want to prevent this, you should log out before clicking on the relevant links. An assignment takes place in any case, if you log into the relevant network after clicking on the link.
Links to our social media presence
On our Website and App, we have incorporated links to our social media profiles on the following social networks:
- Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA,
- Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA
If you click on the relevant social network icons, you will be automatically redirected to our profile on the relevant network. In order to use the functions of the relevant network there, you must partially log in to your user account for the relevant network.
When you open a link to one of our social media profiles, a direct connection is established between your browser and the server of the relevant social network. This gives the network the information that you have visited our Website/App with your IP address and accessed the link. If you access a link to a network while logged in to your account on the relevant network, the contents of our page may be linked to your profile in the network, which means that the network can link your visit to our Website/App directly to your user account. If you want to prevent this, you should log out before clicking on the relevant links. An assignment takes place in any case, if you log into the relevant network after clicking on the link.
Please note that you use these profiles and the networks’ functions in your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
Please be aware that we have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes when you enter these networks (including our company’s profile), nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the network providers, nor whether your data is transferred to countries outside Switzerland or the European Union.
The manner, in which the network providers use the data from visits to their pages for their own purposes, the extent to which activities on the page are assigned to individual users, how long the networks store this data and whether data from visits to the network pages is passed on to third parties is not conclusive and clearly named by these networks and is not known to us.
The network provider may store the data collected about you as user profiles and may use these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place, in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our Website/App. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective network provider to exercise this right.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the network provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the network provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the network provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the network provider also may store this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating a button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the network provider.
