  1. Liebe Jana, warum nutzt Du denn nicht die Zweiklicklösung (beschrieben bei Heise) für den Facebook und Google+-Button?

    Viele Grüße! Karen

    1. Liebe Karen,
      das ist ganz einfach: Ich halte die Rechtsansicht zu dem Thema “Zwei-Klick-Lösung” für nicht richtig. Deswegen komme ich meiner Informationspflicht nach § 13 TMG nach, übermittle aber keine Informationen an die jeweiligen Anbieter von Social Plugins. Diese erheben die Daten auch in eigenem Interesse und nicht in meinem Auftrag. Sie sind jeweils selbstständige verantwortliche Stellen.
      Beste Grüße,
