These have an external link to the corresponding social media platforms as soon as you click on them. You are only then actively in contact with the respective platforms if you activate yourself by clicking and, if necessary, log in to the respective platform. A transfer of personal data due to the inclusion of the icons to the social media platforms by calling our website does not take place.
