Data transmission to the platform provider (Facebook, Xing or LinkedIn) will only be initiated when you click on the link. Active use of the respective social networks is then subject to the data privacy conditions and usage conditions of the respective providers. You can find information about their collection, storage and use of your data in their respective data privacy policies.
