Data protection provisions about the application and use of Xing
On this website, the controller has integrated components of Xing. Xing is a web-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and forge new business contacts. The individual users can create a personal profile at Xing. Companies can e.g. create company profiles or publish jobs on Xing.
The operating company of Xing is XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a depiction of the corresponding Xing component from Xing. Further information about the Xing plug-ins is available at https://dev.xing.com/plugins
. In the course of this technical procedure, Xing gains knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website was 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, Xing detects which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject, if the data subject is logged in on Xing at the same time. This information is collected via the Xing component and associated with the respective Xing account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, e.g. the "Share" button, Xing associates this information with the personal Xing account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Whenever the data subject is logged in on Xing while visiting our website, Xing receives information that the data subject has visited our website via the Xing component. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Xing component or not. If a transmission of this information to Xing is undesired by the data subject, they may prevent it by logging off from their Xing account before visiting our website.
