This will help us continue to provide information to you that best meets your needs. You also have a right to request access to your personal information. Such updates or requests may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests to update or access personal information will be subject to verification of your identity.
We may use social plug-ins of various social networks, for example Facebook, Twitter or Google. These plug-ins are functions of the respective social network through which you can share content of our Site with your social media contacts, for instance, or recommend this content to others.

Via the integrated social plug-ins, the social network operators, which are usually located in the United States of America, will be informed that you have called up the respective pages of our Site. If you are logged into any of the social networks at the same time, the operator will be able to match the relevant call-ups with your account at the respective social network. Moreover, if you interact with social plug-ins, the relevant information will be forwarded to the respective social network. For details on the purpose and scope of data processing, collection and use by the social networks we are using, and on your rights and optional settings in this context, please refer to the social networks' statements on data protection to be found on the respective websites.
We use appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration.

We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or materials sent through such open networks. When you share personal information through an open network, you should be aware that third parties may access this information and collect and use it for their purposes.
