Data protection provisions about the application and use of Pinterest
On this website, the controller has integrated components of Pinterest Inc. Pinterest is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place on the internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Pinterest enables the users of the social network, among other things, to publish picture collections, individual pictures, and descriptions on virtual pinboards (so-called pins), which can then be shared or commented on by other users (so-called re-pins).
The operating company of Pinterest is Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, United States.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Pinterest component (Pinterest plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Pinterest component to download a depiction of the corresponding Pinterest component from Pinterest. Further information on Pinterest is available at https://pinterest.com/
. In the course of this technical procedure, Pinterest gains knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
With every visit to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, Pinterest detects which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject, if the data subject is logged in on Pinterest at the same time. This information is collected via the Pinterest component and associated with the respective Pinterest account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Pinterest buttons integrated on our website, Pinterest associates this information with the personal Pinterest account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Whenever the data subject is logged in on Pinterest while visiting our website, Pinterest receives information that the data subject has visited our website via the Pinterest component. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Pinterest component or not. If a transmission of this information to Pinterest is undesired by the data subject, they may prevent it by logging off from their Pinterest account before visiting our website.
