So-called Social Plugins, in particular the “like” button of the social network facebook.com, may be used on our website. Facebook.com is operated by Facebook Inc., with its headquarters in the United States of America.

Whenever you visit one of the websites of our internet presence which contains such a plugin, your internet browser (for instance Internet Explorer or Safari) will set up a direct connection to the Facebook servers. We cannot influence the amount of data collected by Facebook in this manner, and hereby inform you in accordance with our status of knowledge:

Through the inclusion of a plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website. If you are logged into your Facebook user account while visiting our website, Facebook can attribute the retrieval of our website to your user account. If you then interact with social plugins, for instance by pressing the “like” button or the function “invite friends”, “share” or “share with a friend”, the corresponding information is passed on to Facebook and will be stored there. Even if you are not a Facebook member, it may be possible for Facebook to recognise and store your IP address.
