Social plugins

This website uses so-called “social plug-ins” (hereinafter: plug-ins) from social networks on the Internet. These plug-ins are displayed with the logo of the corresponding network. When you visit a website with such a plug-in, a direct connection is established with the servers of the corresponding social network. If you are logged in to this network at this time with user name and password, it will automatically be informed that you are visiting our website. This information can be assigned to your user account there. Even if you interact with plug-ins (such as “Like” or “Share” on Facebook or “Tweet This” on Twitter), the content of our pages is linked to your profile on the social network. Other users of the network can learn about this interaction. Life Science Communication AG is neither somehow connected with third party operators whose websites are integrated by means of plug-ins, nor somehow responsible for them. If you are not a member of the Social Network or are not logged in there, it is still possible that your IP address will be transmitted and stored there. Specific data protection guidelines and liability regulations apply to third-party websites integrated via plug-ins. The storage and use of your data by these site operators may exceed the scope of the data protection declaration of Life Science Communication AG. Life Science Communication AG has no knowledge of the purpose and scope of data collection and of the further processing and use of the data – nor does it have any influence on it. You should therefore inform yourself about the data protection guidelines of the third party operators. On the website we use the following plugins: Facebook and Twitter. If you do not want social networks to collect data about you via active plug-ins, you can select the “Block third party cookies” function in your browser settings.

Collection and processing of personal data

The newsletter of Life Science Communication AG can be traced back to whether it was successfully delivered, whether and when the newsletter was opened by which recipient and which links in the newsletter were called up by the recipient. This personal data is stored and evaluated in order to optimise the sending of newsletters. The personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
