How we integrate our Social-Media Buttons?

Your data privacy is very important for us. The original source code of social media buttons sends data like your IP address or your Browser-Version to the social networks whose button is integrated to a website. If you are logged in to the social network at the same time, the information are linked with your account and a movement profile is created. We are not supporting such kind of technologies, which by the way are illegal after the GDPR came effective in the European Union on May 25th 2018. This is why we decided for another way of integration. First we have chosen the social media icons from the press kits or the free icon database icon-icons.com. We store the image files of the symbols on our server, then we linked them with an standard HTML link to our profile on the social network. The HTML link forwards you via tharp.de to our social media profile. tharp.de is our self-hosted URL Shortener. For more details check the FAQ sections below. Nevertheless we added a section about social media in our privacy policy. We are also publishing our content on YouTube, that makes it theoretical possible that we are embedding YouTube content to our website, what we definitely not do. And for the people who don't believe our statements here, they have it in black letters on white background in our privacy policy.
