4.6 Social media links via graphics
We also integrate the following social media sites. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective site.

Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will you be forwarded to the service of the respective social network.
Once you click, that network may record information about you and your visit to our site. It cannot be ruled out that such data will be processed in the United States.
Initially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the page visited. If you are logged into your user account on that network, however, the network operator might assign the information collected about your visit to our site to your personal account. If you interact by clicking Like, Share, etc., this information can be stored your personal user account and possibly posted on the respective network. To prevent this, you need to log out of your social media account before clicking on the graphic. The various social media networks also offer settings that you can configure accordingly.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linked graphics: YouTube
Embedded YouTube videos
a. Data processing
We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offering, which are stored on the YouTube platform and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is a service of Google LLC, D/B/A YouTube. 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter as ‘Google’). The videos are all embedded in the so-called ‘2-click-mode’, which means that no data about you as a user is being transferred to Google if you do not activate the video function. Before the video function’s activation, only a preview image loaded from our own web server is being displayed.
We may also disclose or forward your personal data to IT service providers. We carefully select the IT service providers, and they work for us as data processors.
In order to comply with our statutory obligations regarding accounting and drawing up annual financial reportings, we use third parties who are legally obliged to maintain secrecy (tax consultants,auditors, and attorneys), because we can not provide these services ourselves(legitimate interest). In the context of their work, they may receive your personal data as required in accordance with Clause 4 or gain access to this personal data (legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f)GDPR).
The transmission of your personal data to recipients in countries outside the European Union is not intended.
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulations, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with technological developments.
We use SSL or TLS encryption for our contact form. You can recognise an encrypted connection in that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://”, and the lock symbol will appear in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you send to us (e.g. in the context of orders or requests) cannot be read by third parties.
The contact data of our data protection officer is: firstname.lastname@example.org, sqanit GmbH, Balanstrasse 71a, 81541 Munich, Germany.
Right to object to further processing:
If we process personal data of you on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (i.e. if we process such data to exercise our legitimate interests), you have the right to object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling protectable reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend our legal claims.
