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

The Allianz Website uses the following social media plug-ins ("plug-ins"):

  • Share on Facebook, powered by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA;

  • Tweet button, powered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA;

All plug-ins are indicated with the brand names of the respective operators Facebook, Google, and Twitter ("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-ins by clicking on them 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-ins is then transmitted by the Operators 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 Facebook button or the Tweet button, the data will be transferred directly from your browser to the Operator and saved by the Operator. In addition, the information will be published on the relevant social network or on your Twitter account and will be visible to your contacts. If you do not want this data transfer to the Operators, you must log out of your respective account before you click on the plug-ins and activate them.
