Social Plugins

Our website uses social plug-ins ("plug-ins") for the social network Facebook. If these plug-ins are activated, your browser will set up a direct link to Facebook as soon as you visit one of our internet website pages. The integration of plugins provides Facebook with information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged on to Facebook, your visit can be assigned by Facebook to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins by, for example, using the "Like" button or by adding a comment, the corresponding information will be sent from your browser directly to Facebook where it will be stored. The purpose and scope of data collection, further processing, use of data by Facebook and your rights and data privacy setting options in this regard are detailed in Facebook's own privacy policy. Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA If you do not wish Facebook to collect information about you via our website, you must logout of Facebook before going to our website. Websites with active social plugins can still send data to networks even if you are not logged on to any social network. Active plugins set an identifier with a cookie every time the website is accessed. If you do not wish social networks to collect data about you using active plugins, you can select "Disable third-party cookies" in your browser settings. The browser will then no longer send cookies to the server when third-party contents are embedded in a website. However, this setting may not only prevent cookies from functioning but could also stop other cross-website functions working.
