Our website uses features of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Each time you visit one of our pages that contains LinkedIn features, it connects to the LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is then informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click LinkedIn's "Recommend" button and are logged in to your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn will be able to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account. We point out here that we, as the provider of the website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and their use by LinkedIn.

For more information, refer to the LinkedIn privacy policy at: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

Twitter

We have also integrated with the Twitter messaging service (twitter.com) on our website. This messaging service is provided by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Twitter offers its so-called "Tweet" function. Thus, you can publish 140-character messages with website links with your own Twitter account. If you use the Twitter's "Tweet" function on our web pages, the respective page will be linked to your account on Twitter where it may be made public. Data is then also transmitted to Twitter. We are not aware of the content of the transmitted data and any usage by Twitter. For more information, please consult Twitter's privacy policy at: twitter.com/privacy. You can change your Twitter privacy settings under Account Settings at twitter.com/account/settings.

This website uses YouTube to view and play videos. YouTube is owned by Google. The website operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube plug-in, you will be connected to a YouTube server. The YouTube server will be informed about which of our pages you visited.

YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile when you are logged in to your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Facebook

For the information services offered here, BlueSens gas sensor GmbH uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Please be aware that you use this Facebook page and its functions under your own responsibility. In particular, this applies to the use of interactive functions such as commenting, sharing and rating. You may also access the information offered on this page from our website at www.bluesens.com.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects information (such as your IP address and other information) that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of these Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More information is provided by Facebook at the following link:
http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes, in general terms, what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. Information on how to contact Facebook and how to configure advertisements can also be found there. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:
http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy

Facebook's complete data guidelines can be found at https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy.

Facebook has not clearly specified in what way they use the data from visits to Facebook pages for their own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data, and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties; thus, such details are not known to us.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for IP addresses coming from Germany) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about its users' end devices (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function). Thus, Facebook may be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie containing your Facebook identification on your end device. This enables Facebook to know that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in web pages allow Facebook to track your visits to these web pages and associate this information with your Facebook profile. This data can be used to tailor content or advertising to your preferences.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook, deactivate the function "stay logged in", delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. Facebook information that immediately identifies you is deleted in this way. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identity. When you access the interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. If you login, you will once again be recognizable for Facebook as a specific user.

For information on how to manage or delete existing information concerning you, visit the following Facebook Support pages:
https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#

As the provider of the information service, we do not collect and process any other data from your use of our service.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged by Google with other data provided.
