Shariff sharing functions

We use the privacy-safe "Shariff" buttons. "Shariff" was developed to allow more privacy on the net and to replace the usual "share" buttons of social networks. In doing so, not the user's browser, but rather the server on which this online offer is located, establishes a connection with the server of the respective social media platforms and queries, for example, the number of likes, etc. The user remains anonymous. More information about the Shariff project can be found at the developers of the magazine c't: www.ct.de.
