9. How are social media plug-ins used on the Allianz Website?

The Allianz Website uses the Share Button on LinkedIn, operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States as its social media plug-in (“plug-in”).

The plug-in is indicated with the LinkedIn brand name ("Operator"). To increase the level of data protection and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, we have implemented the additional programs by means of a so-called 2-click solution. This procedure ensures that when you visit the Allianz Website, no direct connection of your browser to the servers of the Operator is established. Only if you activate the plug-in by clicking on it and thereby grant your consent to the data transfer, your browser establishes a direct connection to the server of the respective Operator. The content of the plug-in is then transmitted by the Operator directly to your browser and integrated by them into the website.

By accepting the plug-in, the Operator receives the information that your browser has accessed the Allianz Website. If you logged in to your account when you visited the Allianz Website, the Operator can connect your visit to your account directly. If you interact with the plug-in, e.g. by clicking on the LinkedIn "Share" button, the data will be transferred directly from your browser to the Operator and saved by the Operator. If you do not want this data transfer to the Operator, you must log out of your respective account before you click on the plug-in and activate them.
