We use so-called ‘cookies’ on certain pages in order to make our website more attractive and enable the user to use certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your device or home computer.

Use of Facebook Social Plug-ins

This website uses so-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network Facebook which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins are indicated by the Facebook logo or by the “Facebook Social Plugin” description. You can find an overview of Facebook plug-ins and their appearance here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

When you visit one of our webpages that contains such a plug-in, your browser makes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. Facebook will transmit the contents of the plug-in directly to your browser and embed it in the website. Through embedded plug-ins, Facebook receives data pertaining to correlating information you call up on our website – even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to your Facebook account at the time. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted over your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate this information with your Facebook account. When you interact with the plug-ins (for example, by clicking the ‘like’ button or leaving a comment), the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook, where it is saved. The information is also posted on Facebook and can be seen by your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for purposes of advertising, market research and personalized design of Facebook pages. For these purposes, Facebook creates profiles regarding usage, interests and relationships, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide further related services with the use of Facebook. If you have a Facebook account, but would not like Facebook to collect data about you through our website and connect it to the stored data for your profile, then you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. For more information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, your rights (and settings options) pertaining to the protection of your privacy, please consult Facebook’s privacy policy at: https//www.facebook.com/policy.php
