(1) Third-party applications (e.g. AddThis, Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter) are integrated into parts of the WALTER GROUP website, as well as content stored on third-party platforms (e.g. YouTube). Despite careful testing and active measures to safeguard data protection, the WALTER GROUP has no influence over the use of user data compiled by third parties on our website. Responsibility for these data lies exclusively with the providers of these applications.
(1.2) Facebook Inc., headquartered at 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA (“Facebook“ for short), provides plug-ins for website operators. These plug-ins are installed on the WALTER GROUP website. The plugins are identified by the Facebook logo and the Facebook “Like” and “Recommend” buttons. When a user accesses a WALTER GROUP website containing this plug-in, the user’s browser sets up a connection with the plug-in provider’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user´s browser, and is displayed within the framework of the website. The WALTER GROUP has no influence over the content of the plug-in. In some circumstances, Facebook can retrace the user’s visit to corresponding website pages and allocate it to a Facebook account, if the user is registered with Facebook or if he has recently visited a Facebook site or one with Facebook content. When a user actively uses a plug-in (e.g. by activating the Like button or sending a recommendation for the site), corresponding information is also sent from the user’s browser directly to Facebook; the WALTER GROUP cannot influence this. For further details on the way, purpose and scope, as well as further processing of user data by Facebook, please refer to Facebook’s data protection information at
There, users can learn more about rights and settings options for protecting their privacy. The WALTER GROUP does not influence the purpose and scope of Facebook’s data compilation or Facebook’s further processing thereof, nor can the WALTER GROUP access this information.
(1.3) Twitter Inc., with headquarters at 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107 USA (“Twitter” for short) provides plugins for website operators which are used on the WALTER GROUP website. The plugins are identified by the “Twitter-Tweet“ and/or “Follow” buttons. Sites with these plugins create a direct connection to Twitter and transmit various data, depending on your login status at Twitter. Conclusions can possibly be drawn thereby concerning the user’s Internet usage on the WALTER GROUP website which Twitter might use for its own purposes. The plug-in content shown is on Twitter servers and is only displayed on the WALTER GROUP website. The WALTER GROUP does not influence the purpose or scope of Twitter’s data compilation or Twitter’s further processing thereof, nor can the WALTER GROUP access this information. For more detailed information on Twitter’s data protection regulations please refer to

The plugins are identified by the "Google Plus One Button". Sites with these plugins create a direct connection to Google and transmit various data, depending on your login status at Google. Conclusions can possibly be drawn thereby concerning the user’s internet usage on the WALTER GROUP website. Furthermore, the results of Google’s search engines may also be influenced thereby.

The purpose and scope of Google’s compilation and further processing of data are not connected with the WALTER GROUP, nor can the WALTER GROUP access this information.
