12. Social plug-ins
We use the following plug-ins from Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter on our website.
a. Facebook social plug-ins
The website contains ‘social plug-ins’ (‘plug-ins’) from the social network www.facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (‘Facebook’). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the appendix ‘Facebook Social Plug-in’ (http://developers.facebook.com/plugins). The website contains plug-ins that establish a direct connection between the user’s browser and Facebook’s servers as soon as the user accesses the website. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website by the browser. Motel One has no influence over the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of these plug-ins.
As a result of the integration of the plug-ins, Facebook is informed that the user has accessed the corresponding website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the user to his/her Facebook account. If the user clicks the ‘Like’ button or writes a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from his/her browser to Facebook and stored there.
If the user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her via Motel One and link it with his/her stored membership data, the user must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. However, even if the user is not logged into Facebook, it is possible that Facebook may learn about and save certain data.
If users wants to block Facebook social plug-ins in general, they can install and activate a corresponding extension on their browser, such as ‘Facebook Blocker’ (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
b. Instagram social plug-ins
Our website uses social plug-ins (‘plug-ins’) from Instagram, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, e.g. in the form of an ‘Instagram camera’. When the user accesses our website containing such a plug-in, the browser creates a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Instagram to the user’s browser and integrated into the page. As a result of this integration, Instagram is informed when the user has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If the user is logged into Instagram, Instagram can assign the visit to our website to the user’s Instagram account. If the user interacts with the plug-ins, for example by clicking on the Instagram button, this information will also be transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Instagram account and displayed to the user’s contacts there. Motel One has no influence over the scope of the data that Instagram collects with the help of these plug-ins.
c. Pinterest social plug-ins
Our website uses social plug-ins (‘plug-ins’) from the social network Pinterest, which is operated by Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (‘Pinterest’). The plug-ins can be seen, for example, on buttons with the ‘Pin it’ icon on a white or red background. When the user accesses our website containing such a plug-in, the browser creates a direct connection to Pinterest’s servers. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Pinterest to the user’s browser and integrated into the page. As a result of this integration, Pinterest is informed when the user has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Pinterest profile or are not logged into Pinterest.
d. Twitter buttons
The website also offers the ability to post articles and other content on Twitter. This service and a configured plug-in are provided by Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The ‘tweet’ button allows users to share blog articles on Twitter. The button also shows the number of tweets a blog entry has received.
When the website is accessed, the code for the tweet button is requested directly from a Twitter server by the user’s browser and integrated into the website. Motel One therefore has no influence over the scope of the data accessed by Twitter. According to its own information (https://twitter.com/privacy), Twitter stores the message transmitted in the tweet as well as the meta data. According to the operator, this includes: the date and time of the tweet, the exact internet address (abbreviated, if necessary) where the tweet button is located and other technical data, such as IP address, browser type and operating system. Twitter does not indicate how long the information is stored. Further information from Twitter can be found here (https://twitter.com/privacy)
13. Retargeting/interest-based advertising
This website uses the Criteo service offered by Criteo GmbH, Gewürzmühlstrasse 11, 80538, Munich, Germany. With the help of this service, users who have visited our website and expressed interest in our products and services are offered targeted advertising on this website and on other websites that also use the Criteo service. The advertising that is shown is based on information about the visit to the respective websites, which is stored in cookies on the user’s computers and in other ways. These text files are then scanned during subsequent visits to the website to produce targeted product recommendations. To this end, a randomly generated ID number is stored in the cookies. Neither this number nor the information about your visits to the websites can be assigned to you personally. In no case will the data be used to identify you personally as a visitor to our websites.
You can prevent the storage and use of information by the Criteo service by clicking on the following link (http://www.criteo.com/de/datenschutzrichtlinie) and sliding the ruler there next to ‘Opt out’ to ‘ON’. If you select ‘ON’, a new cookie (opt-out cookie) will be saved in your browser. This cookie tells the Criteo service that Criteo may no longer collect and process data about your usage behaviour. You can reactivate this function by sliding the rule to ‘OFF’. Please note that you must change this setting for every browser that you use. If you delete all of the cookies in your browser, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well.
