Facebook Social Plugins
Our website also uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook, Inc. (1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”)). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin.”

When accessing pages that have the usual social plugin of Facebook, data about your online behaviour is transferred the social network’s server– even if you are not logged into your social media account and even if you are not a member of one of that social network. This website has implemented the privacy-enhancing technology “Shariff” for the social plugins it uses and therefore data about your online behaviour is first transferred to the social network’s servers after you click (actively) on the social plugin – e.g. click on the “Like-Button”. (more information about “Shariff: //www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html)

When accessing pages that have this plugin, data about your online behaviour is first transferred to Facebook’s servers after you click on the social plugin. The website provider has no influence on the type and scope of the data that is collected and transmitted to Facebook. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can attribute the visit to your Facebook account. Additional information about data privacy on Facebook can be found here: //www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
