Use of the XING share button
You are free to add the XING share button to your website by using XING’s “button builder”. There you can choose from a number of different designs and features.
You also have the opportunity to change the language you would like to use. After selecting a language, you will see a “code snippet” that you then need to add to your website’s source code.
The XING share button with the designs and features you chose will then appear on each web page where you added the “code snippet”.
What personal data will be collected and used?
We do not store any information relating to the fact that you created a XING share button. Our server logs do however allow us to subsequently identify how often domain pages were accessed using the XING share button.
What data is saved and handled when people visit my website?
If you use the XING share button on your website, the user’s end device browser will access a specific server cluster in one of XING’s data centers each time they click on a page on your site where the share button is embedded. This server cluster hosts and handles all of the features of the XING share button.
This server cluster is special in that it has been configured to be as privacy friendly as possible. This means that no information from which we can create a direct connection to an individual is stored when people visit your website. XING does not store the IP addresses of people who visit pages on your site where you embedded the XING share button.
The XING share button does not involve any cookies, meaning that you do not need to acquire a separate declaration of consent from visitors to your website.
How can I inform visitors to my website about the XING share button?
