8. Social plugins from Facebook, YouTube and Instagram
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. These services are provided by Facebook Inc., YouTube LLC. and Instagram LLC. (“Providers”).
We use the providers so that we can tell you more about us and our “Swiss Ice Challenge” project; this is also the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
No personal information will be transmitted to the respective providers before the corresponding links or plug-ins are called up. Your access to the linked page is also the basis for data processing by the respective provider (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to one of the services, the providers can assign your visit to our website directly to your profile on Facebook, YouTube or Instagram. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or the “Instagram” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information is also published in the social network or on your Instagram account and displayed there to your contacts.

CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on the CleverReach servers in Germany and Ireland.
Our newsletters sent with CleverReach enable us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, it can be analyzed how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link was clicked in the newsletter.

Further information on data analysis in the CleverReach newsletter is available at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/
Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you do not want an analysis by CleverReach, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter by e-mail.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from our servers as well as from CleverReach’s servers after you cancel the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected.
