7. Social media plugins:
This website uses the social media plugins (“plugins”) of the social media network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the designation “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook social media plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If a user views a website that contains such a plugin, his browser sets up a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is passed by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated by it into the website. The provider therefore has no control over the extent of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users in accordance with his level of knowledge:
By integrating the plugin, Facebook obtains information that a user has called up the relevant page of the website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example click on the “Like” button or write a comment, the corresponding information is passed directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still a chance that Facebook can find out his IP address and store it.
The purpose and extent of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook as well as the rights and setting options concerning this to protect the users’ privacy can be found in Facebook’s Privacy Statement: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and would not like Facebook to collect data about him from this website and link member data stored with his at Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting this website.
