3. Web Analysis Service

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA.

4. Social Plugins

4.1. Facebook

This Service uses Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the social Network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). You may find the overview of the Facebook Social Plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.

When the User visits a web site with such an offer containing such Plugin, his/her browser builds a direct connection to Facebook servers. The content of the Plugins is directly placed to your browser by Facebook. allex SOFTWARE exerts therefore no influence at the range of data collected by Facebook with the help of these Plugins and thus informs the User according to its Knowledge..

Through the integration of the Plugin, Facebook receives the information that the User visited a corresponding page of the offer. If the User is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to the Facebook account of the User. When the Users interact with the Plugin, for example when they press the button Like or when they submit a comment, the relevant information is directly transmitted to Facebook by their browser and stored there. Even if the User is not a Facebook member, there also exists the possibility that Facebook learns about his/her IP address and stores it. According to Facebook, only anonymous addresses are stored in Germany.

The information on the purpose and scope of data collection and use by Facebook, as well as the information on the relevant rights and set up possibilities can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

In order to prevent Facebook from assigning the visit to our pages to your Facebook User Account, please log out from your Facebook User Account before visiting our page. Moreover, it is also possible to block Facebook Social-Plugins with Add-ons for your browser, for example with “Facebook Blocker”.

4.2. LinkedIn

This offer uses Social Plugins of the social Network linkedin.com, offered by linkedin Inc., 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View CA 94043 USA (“Linkedin”).

When the User visits a web site with plugins by Linkedin and is registered as a member of Linkedin, Linkedin uses and stores these information in order to recommend to the User the information especially relevant for him/her. With the help of these information, features which has Linkedin made available to the User become personalized at third-party web sites.

Those Users who wish to deactivate this personalization can reject this function here. Linkedin does not use these information for advertising purposes.
