6. Social Media Plug-ins

We use social plugins for the social network Instagram on our website to promote our winery on the basis of Article 6 (1), first sentence, (f) of the GDPR. The advertising purpose behind this is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us is done by means of the so-called two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").

The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera". When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagrams servers. Instagram transmits the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. Through this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser 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 and stored on an Instagram server in the United States. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. When you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Instagram" button, this information is also sent directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also posted on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.

If you do not want Instagram to associate the data, that is collected through our website, directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
