Social Networks, Plugins

You always have the freedom of choice, if you would like to establish a connection to the websites of Facebook and/or “Twitter” via Plugins which are embedded into our websites. Plugins are interfaces supplied by the providers of Facebook and Twitter to establish a connection to their websites and applications. Normally these Plugins use the logo of the respective social network or are signified in another practical and transparent manner. E.g the well-known “I like” button of Facebook or another Plugin.

If you decide to visit a social network (e.g. the websites of Facebook and/or Twitter) via our websites using and interacting with such a Plugin (e.g. using the “I like” button of Facebook) we would like to inform you that your browser will establish a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network (e.g. Facebook and/or Twitter). Via Plugin the respective content is embedded on the websites of the social network. In this respect (e.g.) Facebook particularly receives the information that you have established a connection to its websites via Plugin, i.e. they could find out your IP-address and as the case may be other data concerning your computer. In this regard Facebook and/or Twitter may store a cookie on your computer which may be deleted when you shutdown the browser. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by setting your browser to not accept cookies (cp. subsection “Cookies” above).

When you are logged in at Facebook (and/or Twitter) simultaneously (i.e. at the same time when using or interacting with the respective Plugin), Facebook and/or Twitter is able to allocate this to your Facebook and/or Twitter account. To find out the purpose and extent of the collection of data, the further processing and usage of your data by Facebook and/or Twitter as well as your rights and possible settings in this regard to protect your privacy please consider the privacy statement of Facebook and/or the privacy statement of Twitter and/or of any other social network provider which may be embedded via our websites.
