5. Use of Social Media Plug-ins
Plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of different social media networks are embedded in our web pages. The associated services are provided by the respective companies (“providers”). These providers are:
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). For an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance, go to

Instagram is provided by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA („Instagram“). For an overview of the Instagram plug-ins and their appearance, go to
To increase the protection afforded to your data when you visit our web pages, these plug-ins are implemented as “2-click buttons.” This form of integration ensures that, when accessing a page from within our website containing such plug-ins, you are not automatically connected to the providers’ servers. Only if you activate the plug-ins and thereby permit for data transmission, the browser will create a direct link to the providers’ servers. The content of the various plug-ins is then transmitted by the provider concerned directly to your browser and then displayed on your screen.
The plug-in tells the provider which of our website pages you have accessed. If, while viewing our website, you are logged into your user account with the respective provider, he is able to collate your interest, i.e. the information you are accessing, with your user account. On making use of any of the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, leaving a comment), this information too will be transmitted by the browser directly to the provider for retention.
Further information on the collection and use of data by the providers and on the rights and possibilities available to you for protecting your privacy in these circumstances can be found in the providers’ data protection/privacy policies:
Their providers, and not Genetic Trainer, are responsible for their data collection, policies and practices. They may share your personal and other information with us, which information is not subject to this Data Protection Statement. However, we will treat such information consistent with our obligations to the applicable provider and subject to applicable law.
