10.  Social media

On our website, you will find links to the social media services of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram. Links to the websites of social media services can be identified by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach the corporate website of fit GmbH at the respective social media service. By clicking on a link to a social media service, a connection to the servers of the social media service is established. This informs the servers of the social media service that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transferred to the provider of the social media service. These include, for example: 

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located
  • Date and time of accessing the website or activating the link

You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account by logging out of your user account beforehand.

The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union.

For more information on the use of your data by the social media services included on our website, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social media service.

We take technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible. In addition to securing the operating environment, we use, e.g., an encryption method in some areas (application, customer account, contact form). The information you provide is then transmitted in encrypted form using the SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer) to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. You can recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with "https". 

The data sent to us by you will be stored only for the stated purposes in accordance with the provisions of data protection and will under no circumstances be passed on or even sold to third parties without your consent.
