The buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. However, these are not the usual social plugins, but buttons with deposited links. The buttons must be activated (clicked) separately by you by clicking on them. As long as these buttons are not clicked, no data is transferred to the social networks. Only when you click on the buttons and thereby declare your consent to communicate with the servers of the social network, the buttons become active and the connection is established.
After clicking the button acts like a so-called Share-Plugin. The social network is provided with information about the visited page, which you can share with your contacts in your social network. If you want to "share" the information, you must be logged in. If you are not logged in, you will end up on the login page of the social network you clicked on and you will no longer be on the pages of zgf.de/fzs.org. If you are logged in, the information that you would like to recommend the respective article will be transmitted.
By activating the button, the social networks then receive information about the time and date you accessed the corresponding page of our website, as well as your IP address, details of the browser used and language settings. When you click the button, your click is transmitted to the social network and used according to its data usage guidelines.
When the button is activated, we have no influence on the data and data processing procedures collected and are not responsible for this data processing and in this respect we are also not the responsible party within the meaning of the GDPR. We are also not aware of the full extent of the data collection, its legal basis, the purposes and the storage periods. The information provided here is therefore not necessarily complete.
To our knowledge, the provider stores this data in user profiles which he uses for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of his website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right of objection, please contact the respective provider.
The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the respective social network as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the information

If you do not want the social network to receive data about you, you must not click the button.
Social Media Accounts
We would like to point out that you use the social network and platform services offered and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating etc.). The data collected about you in this context is processed by the operators of the platforms and, if necessary, transferred to countries outside the European Union. What information the operators receive and how it is used is described in general terms in the respective data protection guidelines. On the individual platforms, you will also find information on how to contact the operators and how to set up advertisements; on Facebook: www.facebook.com/about/privacy
In what way the operators of the social networks use the data from the visit of the respective pages for their own purposes, to what extent activities on the pages are assigned to individual users, how long these data are stored and whether data from a visit to the respective page are passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by the operators and is not known to us.
Objections to the processing can be made by clicking on the following link https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads

Right to deletion
You have the right to the immediate deletion ("right to be forgotten") of the personal data concerning you if the legal reasons according to Art. 17 GDPR are present.

Right to restrict processing
You have the right to restrict processing if the conditions are met and in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR. According to this, the restriction of processing may be necessary in particular if the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data or the data subject has lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh theirs. In order to exercise your above right, please contact us at the addresses below.
Right to data transferability

In this respect, you have the right to receive the data concerning you that you have provided to us in a common, structured and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to another responsible party, such as another service provider. The prerequisite for this is that the processing is based on a consent or on a contract and is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
