Integration and use of social network plugins, especially Facebook “recommend” or “like” button and other references to external services of social networks. In detail, the following applies for the use of Facebook, Google+ and Twitter buttons on our websites:

Facebook
On our websites we integrated so called plugins of the external social network Facebook and will possibly also link to Facebook. Exclusively responsible for Facebook and its websites is Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (in the following “Facebook”). Here you can find a complete overview on the Facebook-plugins: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.

By using our site you agree with the use of the Facebook buttons and the automatized data transfer to Facebook specified in the following.

You may revoke this consent at any time with future effect towards us addressed to the contact information found in this Privacy Policy. In this case please pass on using social media plugins by not even clicking on the replacements.

The content of the like button is transferred to your browser by Facebook and integrated on the website where the button is located. Therefore, we have no influence on the extent of data Facebook collects with the button.

By having integrated the like button on our website the information on you visiting our website is transferred to Facebook directly, i.e. without passing the indirect way on our own webserver. Moreover, there is a possibility of Facebook identifying and saving your IP address. According to Facebook only the anonymized IP address is saved in Germany. Furthermore, Facebook can recognize which browser and browser version you are using to visit our website by looking at the so called browser string. Facebook wills save his information as well.

Facebook can match data saved on its users with the IP address and browser string transferred by the Facebook plugin even if you are not logged into your Facebook user account. However, this only takes place in case of the Facebook buttons having been reloaded after your active click on the respective replacement. If you want to prevent this data transfer to Facebook, do not click on the Facebook button replacements, so that they cannot even be reloaded.

If you are logged into your Facebook user account Facebook will match the information on you visiting our websites to your user account. By clicking the like button or transferring other information on our websites to Facebook for example by using the share button this information is matched to your user account, saved by Facebook and possibly also transferred to third parties, especially Facebook’s advertising partners. However, this only takes place when you are logged into your Facebook user account. In order to prevent a data transfer to Facebook and the matching of data collected by Facebook with your user account you need to log out of your Facebook user account. In addition, you should delete cookies stored on your computer by Facebook manually in order to prevent a “recognition” by Facebook only with use of the aforementioned usage data in the future.

Further information regarding the purpose and extent of the data collection and the further processing and use of your data by Facebook can be found in the Facebook data protection regulations. They can be found in the internet under http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php.
