The underlying commercial purpose is to be considered a legitimate interest. The responsibility for operation in compliance with data protection regulations lies with the provider in each case.

- Facebook Social Plug-ins
Our websites use social plug-ins of the social network Facebook which is run by Facebook Inc., (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). The plug-ins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue square or with a "thumbs-up" icon). The list and appearance of all the Facebook plug-ins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If you open our websites using that plug-in, the browser will establish a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook servers. The plug-in informs Facebook Inc. that a user has opened the respective website of the offer. There is a possibility that your IP address gets stored. If you are logged in with Facebook, Facebook can match such a site visit to the respective Facebook account. If you post a comment or click the like button the respective information is directly transmitted from your browser to Facebook and will be stored there. Deca thus does not have any influence on the nature and amount of data transferred by the plug-in to Facebook Inc. This data transfer is independent of a click by the user. You can find further information here: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.
In addition to this information you should also note Facebook's data protection regulations. Purpose and scope of the data collection and the further use of such data by Facebook as well as the respective rights and configuration options for protecting the user’s sphere of privacy can be taken from Facebook’s data protection notice https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Further, there is the possibility to install an add-on which will block the Facebook plug-in and prevent the data transfer.
If you are a registered member of Facebook and would like to prevent Facebook from collecting data about you via this offer and matching that data with your member data stored with Facebook, you should log out of Facebook before visiting the respective website.
Further, some of our websites use the Twitter buttons. Such plug-ins are run by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Ste. 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. They can be recognized by the terms "Twitter" or "Follow" combined with a stylized bird. Thanks to this button it is possible to share a post or a website of this offer on Twitter or to follow Deca on Twitter. If you open the respective website containing such a button, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The contents of the Twitter button will be transmitted directly by Twitter to your browser. Deca does not have any influence on the amount of data collected by Twitter with such plug-ins and we herewith inform you in accordance with our knowledge. According to Twitter Inc. only the user’s IP address is transmitted and collected when retrieving the button. Further information can be taken from Twitter’s data protection notice at http://twitter.com/privacy. However, please note that you have the option of changing your data protection settings on Twitter in your Twitter account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.
Some of our websites also include a YouTube plug-in belonging to Google Inc., headquartered in San Bruno/California, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. As soon as you visit a website with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is set up to the YouTube servers. As part of this process the YouTube server is informed of the particular pages on our websites that you visited. If you are also logged in to your YouTube account, you would enable YouTube to assign your browsing habits directly to your personal profile.
You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand. For more information on how YouTube collects and uses your data see the data protection policy at https://www.youtube.com.
