(1) Third-party applications (e.g. AddThis, Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, LinkedIn) are integrated into parts of individual WALTER GROUP websites, as well as content stored on third-party platforms (e.g. YouTube). Despite careful testing and active measures to safeguard data protection, the WALTER GROUP has no influence on the type and use of user data collected by third parties on the WALTER GROUP websites. Responsibility for this data lies exclusively with the providers of these applications:
(1.3) Twitter Inc., with headquarters at 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107 USA (“Twitter” for short) provides plug-ins for website operators, which are used on individual WALTER GROUP websites. The plug-ins are recognisable by the “Twitter-Tweet“ or “Follow” buttons. Pages with these plug-ins establish a direct connection to Twitter and transfer different data depending on your log-in status on Twitter. As a result, conclusions may possibly be drawn concerning use of the WALTER GROUP websites, which Twitter might use for its own purposes. The displayed plug-in content is on Twitter servers and is only displayed on the WALTER GROUP websites. The WALTER GROUP does not influence the purpose or scope of Twitter’s data collection or Twitter’s further processing thereof, nor can the WALTER GROUP access this information. More information on Twitter’s data protection regulations can be found at http://twitter.com/privacy.
(1.5) LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA provides plug-ins that are used on the WALTER GROUP websites. Every visit to a page on our websites that contains LinkedIn functions establishes a connection to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that the user has visited our website with your IP address. If the user clicks LinkedIn's "Like/Share" button and is logged into his LinkedIn account, LinkedIn can assign the user's visit to our website to him and his user account. WALTER GROUP points out that, as provider of the websites, we have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data and its use by LinkedIn.
