We also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which remain on your computer until deleted. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
We also use cookies to collect statistical data about the use of our website, which are then analyzed to optimize our services for you (see section 4).

4. Social media

Sharing content via plug-ins (Facebook, Pinterest)
So-called “social plug-ins” are used on our website to raise awareness of our company pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We currently use plug-ins from Facebook and Pinterest. Data, including personal data, may be sent via these plug-ins to service providers in the USA and potentially used by these service providers.

bulthaup does not collect any personal data via the social plug-ins or any personal data about the use of plug-ins. The Shariff program prevents data from being transmitted to the service provider in the USA without the user’s knowledge. This solution ensures that for the moment, no personal data is transferred to the provider of the social plug-in when you visit bulthaup’s websites. Data can only be transmitted to the service provider and stored there if you click on one of the social plug-ins.

Facebook plug-ins (like & share buttons)
Plug-ins from the Facebook social network, service provider Facebook Inc., 1 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA, are integrated into our websites. The Facebook plug-ins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the “like button” on our website. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When visiting our website, the plug-in will establish a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook is thus informed that you, with your IP address, have visited our website. When you click on the like button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link our site content to your Facebook profile. This way Facebook can associate the visit to our website with your user account. Please note that as the site operator, we have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data and how it is used by Facebook. More information can be found in the Facebook Data Policy at: https://facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account then please log out of your Facebook account.

Pinterest plug-in
Plug-ins from the Pinterest social network, which is operated by service provider Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103-490, USA (“Pinterest”), are operated on our websites.
If you access a website which contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Pinterest servers. The plug-in also transmits log-in data to Pinterest’s servers in the USA. This log-in data may contain your IP address, addresses of sites visited, which likewise contains Pinterest functions, your browser type and settings, the data and time of the request, your use of Pinterest and cookies.
More information about the purpose, scope and further processing and use of data by Pinterest, your rights regarding the same and options to protect your privacy can be found in the Pinterest Privacy Policy. https://about.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy.

Google Analytics remarketing
Our websites also use the functions of Google Analytics remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. These are provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, California 94043, USA.

This function enables advertising target groups created by Google Analytics remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Accordingly, interest-related and personalized adverts are shown, which have been adapted in accordance with your previous usage behavior and surfing habits on one device (e.g. cellphone) and also shown on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have provided the appropriate consent, Google will link your web and app browser histories with your Google account. This allows every device which you log in to with your Google account to have the same personalized adverts shown.

To support this function, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs, which are temporarily linked to your Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account. Please visit the following to do so: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

A potential summary of the data collected in your Google account is only carried out on the basis of your consent, which you can provide to or withdraw from Google (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
