Data Privacy Statement for the use of Facebook plug-ins (“Like” button)
Our website integrates plug-ins for the social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). You will recognise Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” buttons on our website. Please find an overview of the various Facebook plug-ins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This enables Facebook to know that you ‒ with your IP address ‒ have visited their website. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are signed in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can allocate this interaction with our website to your user account.
We would like to point out that we, as website operators, do not receive any notification about the content of the conveyed data or how it is used by Facebook.
Further information about this topic can be found in the Facebook Data Privacy Statement at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php If you do not want Facebook to be able to allocate your use of our website to your Facebook user account, please sign out of your Facebook account.
