Clicking on one of the buttons gives you the option to contact the plug-in provider directly. When you activate a plug-in, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. Additionally, the personal data mentionend in “Collection of personal data when you visit our website” is transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing the respective providers in Germany state that only an anonymised IP is collected.
