Use of Facebook Plugins
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social plugins please see http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about you having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook Social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“.
Use of Google + Button
Google+ is a social network that is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). When you visit a page of uur Website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly with the servers of Google. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to Your browser from Google, which is then used to incorporate it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of data that Google collects through the plugin. According to Google, if one does not click on the plugin, no personal data is collected. Such data, including the IP address, is only collected and processed for logged-in members. If you are a Google+ member and do not wish for Google to use our internet presence as a way to collect information about you and to link this information with the membership data about you which Google has stored, then you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website. The purpose and extent of data collection, the further processing and use of data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and the various possible settings to protect your privacy are to be found in Google's data protection guidelines concerning the plugin: www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
