Application and Use of Instagram
The controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service qualified as an audiovisual platform and allows users to share photos and videos, as well as to share such data in other social networks.
The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14, First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller is accessed and on which an Instagram component (Instagram button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a depiction of the corresponding component from Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram receives information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transferred are assigned to the data subject's personal user account on Instagram and are stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Instagram, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before visiting our website.
Our data protection officer can assist you with requested information, suggestions, or concerns.
