Use of Social Media
Landscape Online integrates twitter in its web site. Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
The Twitter button enables the user to share an article or a website of this homepage on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. If a user visits one of the websites using such a button, the user’s browser directly connects to Twitter’s servers. The Twitter-button and its content are loaded directly from Twitter’s servers and included in the website by the user’s browser. For this reason, the provider of the website cannot influence which data Twitter connects via the button and thus informs the user according to his own knowledge. According to the provider’s knowledge, Twitter collects the user IP-address and the website’s URL when the button is loaded from Twitter’s servers. However, this data is only be used for loading and displaying the Twitter-button.
