OUR USE OF SOCIAL PLUGINS

As we are present in social networks, there are some social plugins on our Websites which we would like to inform you about.

When you would wish to avoid connecting to plugins used on our Websites, you may install privacy-enhancing browser plugins, such as Ghostery (https://www.ghostery.com/), NoScript (https://noscript.net/) or DoNotTrackMe (https://www.abine.com/index.html) etc.

Facebook Inc.

Our Website uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the Facebook social network, as operated by Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). These Plugins are accompanied by the Facebook logo or the words “Soziales Plug-in von Facebook” / “Facebook Social Plugin”.

If you visit our Website containing one of these Plugins, your browser connects directly to the Facebook server. The content of the Plugin is forwarded directly to your browser and embedded in the Website.

By embedding the Plugin, Facebook obtains the information that you access on our Website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to your Facebook account. This information (including your IP address) is transferred to a Facebook server in the United States of America, where it is stored. If you are logged in to your Facebook account, Facebook is able to register the visit to our Website on your Facebook page. If you interact with the Plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or leaving a comment, that information will also be transferred to a Facebook server, where it is stored. That information will also be published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and personalisation of the Facebook pages. To this end, user, interest and relationship profiles are created by Facebook, for example to analyse how you use our Website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our Website and to provide other services related to the use of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to link the data collected about our Website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our Website.

For the goals and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of personal data by Facebook as well as your rights and the settings you can change to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s data protection policy at http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
