Google Web Fonts
For the uniform representation of fonts, this site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to the Google servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address.
Social media plugins
We use buttons (“plugins”) from social networks on our website so that you can use them to act with and about us. These plugins enable different functions that are specified by the different social networks.
For data protection reasons, we use a so-called 2-click procedure. As a result, you have to activate the function of the respective plug-in for the first time with a first click, which can be recognized by the change in color of the button of the plug-in from gray to colored, before personal data can be collected, stored or processed. You can only carry out the desired interaction with a second click on the plugin button.
We use Shariff Share Button for Facebook, Google+ and Twitter
With Shariff you can use the social media plugins Facebook, Google+ and Twitter without unnecessarily jeopardizing your privacy. The c't project Shariff replaces the usual share buttons on social networks and protects your surfing behavior from prying eyes. Nevertheless, a single click on the button is enough to share information with others. You don't have to do anything else - our webmaster has already taken care of everything. The usual social media buttons transfer your user data to Facebook, Google+ and Twitter every time you visit the website and provide the social networks with precise information about your surfing behavior (user tracking). You do not have to be logged in or be a member of the network. On the other hand, a Shariff button only establishes direct contact between the social network and the visitor when the latter actively clicks on the share button. In this way, Shariff prevents you from leaving a digital trace on every page you visit and improves data protection. Thanks to Shariff, the "likes" are displayed on the heise.de website.
The legal basis for the use of social media plugins in relation to the processing of personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest is the provision of interaction options for the purpose of direct advertising (recital 47 GDPR) and the needs-based design of our internet services to interact with social networks to which you belong.
We use plugins from the social network “Facebook”, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (Facebook). You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
If you activate the plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plugin. As a result, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can refer to the content of our website in your Facebook profile.
We use plugins from the social network "Google Plus" from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA. With the help of the Google +1 button you can publish information worldwide. The plugins are z. B. by buttons with the sign "+1" on a white or colored background. You can find an overview of the Google plugins and their design under the following link https://developers.google.com/+/plugins .
Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalized content from Google and its partners. Google saves both the information that you have given +1 for content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed as a hint together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you.
In addition to the purposes outlined above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarized statistics about the +1 activities of users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites. We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or their use by Google. You can find more information on this in Google's data protection declaration at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/?hl=de . Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .

We would like to point out that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it is used by Twitter. You can find more information on this in Twitter's data protection declaration at http://twitter.com/privacy .
We use functions of the "Xing" service, which is operated by XING AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. When you use the plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Xing servers. Xing transmits the content of the plug-in directly to your browser and integrates it into the website. By activating the plug-in, Xing receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged in to Xing, Xing can assign the visit to your Xing account. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Xing as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Xing's data protection information.
We use functions of the YouTube service operated by Google, which is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
