This information is collected by Instagram and assigned to the respective Instagram account of the person concerned. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated into our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.

Instagram always receives information that the data subject has visited our website when the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want Instagram to receive such information, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Instagram account before accessing our website.
