The data collected about you is anonymous for us, so it does not offer us any conclusions about the identity of the users. The processing of data by Pinterest is carried out within the framework of Pinterest's data use policy. Accordingly, general guidance on the display of Pinterest ads can be found in Pinterest's Data Use Policy.

USE OF SOCIAL PLUGINS FROM FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, TWITTER
Social plugins ("plugins") from social networks are used on our website. To increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the page by means of a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such plugins is called up, no connection is yet established with the servers of the respective social network. Only when you activate the plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network.
The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly to the USA) and stored there. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" or "Share" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information will also be published on the social network and displayed there to your contacts. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in an optimal marketing of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
