Social Plugins 

On our website we use so-called social plugins from the social network Facebook, run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plugins are indicated by a Facebook logo (a grey “f” that turns red when the mouse passes over it) or with the additional label “Facebook Social-Plug-in”. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins and what they look like here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ 

By opening a page within our website that contains one of these plugins, your browser makes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. The plugin’s content is sent directly to your browser from Facebook and embedded in the page. Through this connection, Facebook is informed that your browser has opened up the corresponding page within our website. This is also the case even if you are not logged into Facebook and even if you do not have a Facebook account. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and is stored there.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the “Like” button or by entering a comment, this information is also sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. This information is also published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.

Please consult Facebook’s data protection guidelines for information regarding the purpose and extent of Facebook’s data collection and further processing and use of the data and regarding your rights in this respect as well as the settings available to protect your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you have a Facebook account and do not wish for Facebook to correlate the data collected through our website directly to your profile, please log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent Facebook plugins from loading using add-ons for your browser, for example, by using “Facebook Blocker”
