Use of social media plugins from Facebook, Twitter and Google

We wish to protect your privacy. For this reason we use a plugin with a two-click solution for integrating Recommend functions on Facebook, Twitter and Google.

Normally when you visit websites with Recommend functions, data are transferred to the operator of the social network as soon as you go to the website, without you doing anything. The plugin we use prevents this transfer because the Recommend functions are initially deactivated. Data are only transferred to the operator of the social network if you consent to this by activating the functions. However, your consent is valid only for the current page and the network selected. If you access other pages on www.vernetzung-vda.de or on www.connectedcarguide.com, you have to consent again.

For convenience, you can permanently activate the Recommend functions by clicking on the “Settings” button.
