    By calling up one of the individual pages of our website on which an AddThis component has been integrated the respective AddThis component will automatically cause the web browser on the end device of the data subject to download data from the website www.addthis.com.
    Within the context of this technical procedure, AddThis will gain knowledge of the visit and the operating system used by the data subject.

    AddThis displays personalised and interest-related advertisements based on a cookie set by the company.
    This cookie analyses the individual surfing behaviour of the computer system used by the data subject.
    The cookie stores the outbound visits to websites of the computer system.

    The data subject may prevent setting of cookies by our website as already presented above, at any time, by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies.
    This setting of the browser used also prevents AddThis from placing a cookie on the end device of the data subject.

    The data subject further has the option of permanently objecting to processing of personal data by AddThis.
