Interaction with external social networks and platforms

This kind of services allow you to interact with social networks or other external platforms directly from the pages of INDIMO website. The interaction and information obtained through plugins are in any case subject to your personal privacy settings for each social network and external platform.

If an interaction service with social networks is installed, it is possible that, even if you do not use the service, the latter collect traffic data relating to the pages in which it is installed.

It is recommended to log out from the respective services in order to make sure that the processed data is not being connected back to your profile.


Social media plug-ins

To embed social media plug-ins on our website we are using the so called two-click solution. This means that when visiting our page, no personal data is initially transferred to the plug-in providers. You can identify the plug-in providers by looking at their logos as well as the text that appears when you hover your mouse cursor over their logos. You can directly communicate with the plug-in provider via the button.

Please notice:

  • The plug-in provider will only receive the information that you are using on the respective page of our online service once you have clicked the indicated field and thereby have activated it. Additionally, the data listed under point 4 in section 3.1 (see below) is transferred. The activation of a plug-in thus leads to your personal data being transferred to the respective plug-in provider and saved there (in case of US American providers in the USA).
  • As plug-in providers mostly collect data via cookies, we recommend you delete all cookies in your browser via the security settings after each session. We are neither able to influence data collection and data processing, nor are we informed as to the extent of the data collection, the purpose of data processing, or the data retention period. We also have no information from plug-in providers regarding the process of data deletion.
  • The plug-in provider saves the data collected about you in the form of a usage profile and uses that for the purposes of advertisement, market research, and/or needs-based website design. Data analysis of this kind is undertaken (also for not logged-in users) in particular for the purposes of needs-based advertisement, and to inform other users of the respective social network of your activities on our website.
  • You have the right to object to the creation of these profiles.To make use of this right, you need to turn to the respective plug-in provider. We offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users via the plug-ins, enabling us to improve our online service and make it more interesting for you as a user. Legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Article 6 paragraph 1 of GDPR.
  • Your data is passed on to the plug-in provider independently of you having an account with their network or being logged in there. If you are logged in, the data that was collected about you on our website will be attributed to your account with the plug-in provider.
  • If you click on the plug-in buttons and e.g. post a link on the social media account you are accessing, this information is also collected by the plug-in provider, saved in your account, and publicly shared with your contacts.
  • We suggest you regularly log-out after using social networks, especially before clicking on any plug-in buttons as this prevents the plug-in provider from matching the activity with your account.

You can find further information on the purpose and the scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider in their respective data protection statements. There you can also find further information on your rights, on customising settings and options for the purpose of protecting your privacy.
