3. Use of Facebook social plug-ins
Within the context of our internet site, social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network facebook.com are used, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plug-ins are identified with the “Facebook” logo or the “like” button. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you access our internet site, your browser immediately establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser; your browser then integrates this into the website. By integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives information about which page from our internet site you have accessed. If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking on the “like” button, the corresponding information is transferred from your browser directly to Facebook and saved there. It should be noted that we do not receive any knowledge of the content of the data transferred, or how it is used by Facebook.
Please consult Facebook’s data protection information (http://www.facebook.com/policy.php) for the purpose and scope of the data collection and further processing and usage of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights and privacy protection settings in this connection.
If you use Facebook and you would like to make it more difficult for Facebook to collect data about your visit to our internet site, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our internet site.
