Data privacy statement for the use of Facebook plugins (Like button)
Plugins for the Facebook social network are integrated into our website. Their provider is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. You can recognise the Facebook plugins from the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our site. You will find an overview of the Facebook plugins at: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our site, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thus receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP-address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our site to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign your visit to our pages to your Facebook user account. We advise that, as the provider of the site, we receive no information about the data transmitted or its use by Facebook. You will find further information on this in Facebook’s data privacy statement at http://dede. facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not wish Facebook to be able to assign your visit to our site to your Facebook user account, then please log out of your Facebook user account.
