5. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do no damage to your device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that results in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. However, this does not mean that we immediately become aware of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically after leaving our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your terminal device for a specifically determined period of time for optimization of user-friendliness. If you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you (see Section 5). When you return to our site, these cookies enable us to recognize automatically that you have already been with us. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the purposes mentioned for the protection of our legitimate interests as well as of third parties according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer, or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. Complete deactivation of cookies, however, may result in you being unable to use all the functions of our website.

6. Use of YouTube

We partly integrate the videos found on our website with the help of the provider YouTube. The embedding takes place in the extended data protection mode. For more information about privacy on YouTube, please see the provider's privacy policy.

7. Analysis tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures used, on the one hand, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet requirements and is continually optimized. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate under the aforementioned provision.

Matomo

We use the open source software Matomo to analyze and statistically evaluate the use of the website. Cookies are used for this purpose (see Section 4). The information generated by the cookie about website usage is transmitted to our servers and combined in pseudonymous user profiles. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website and to enable a demand-oriented design of our website. This data will not be transferred to third parties.

Under no circumstances will the IP address be linked to other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymized, such that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

6. Social media plug-ins

On our website, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, we set social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to make the Bremen Chamber of Employees better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest under the GDPR. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plug-ins by us is done using the so-called Shariff to protect visitors of our website in the best possible way.

a) Facebook

Our website uses social media plug-ins from Facebook to personalize their use. For this we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button. This is an offer from Facebook.
If you access a page of our website that contains a social plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which then embeds it into the website.
Through the integrated plug-in, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can link the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, that information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and tailored design of Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates use, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. in order to evaluate your use of our website in terms of the advertisements displayed for you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services relating to the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to link the data collected on our website to your Facebook account, you must log out from Facebook before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook's Privacy Policy (www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

b) Twitter

Our website contains integrated plug-ins from the short message network, Twitter Inc. (Twitter). You can recognize the Twitter plug-ins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of the tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. This enables Twitter to receive information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter "tweet button" while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate your visit of our pages with your user account. Please note that, as the provider of this site, we have no knowledge of the content of the data that is transmitted to Twitter or of how Twitter uses this data.
If you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account.
You can find more information on Twitter's privacy policy at (https://twitter.com/privacy).
