Additionally, this site also uses connections to social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and XING. Some of these platforms' predefined buttons and plug-ins, however, collect user data even without any actions being taken by the user. Since we do not approve of this way of collecting data, we use a 2-click-engine developed by German IT portal heise online. By regularly depicting inactive standard buttons, this solutions prevents external platforms from collecting data. Once you click on the inactive buttones, they will become active and you might proceed with the desired action of liking, sharing or recommending. Therefore, by clicking the respective button, the user consents to using the respective social media and to data being collected by these platforms. Source (in German): heise online
