Plug-ins

Use of Facebook plug-ins

This Internet site uses plug-ins of the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California

Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").

Whenever you display one of our Internet pages that hosts a Facebook plug-in you will be linked to the Facebook

servers, a message is sent to your browser, and the plug-in is run on the Internet page. This is telling the

Facebook server which of our pages you have visited. Assuming you are logged on to your Facebook member

account while running the Facebook plug-in, Facebook will allocate the information to your personal Facebook

user account. Further information collected and allocated by Facebook is the use of plug-in functions (like clicking

on the Like button or posting a comment). To prevent this data collection and allocation, you must log off your

Facebook user account before running the plug-in.

If you do not wish Facebook to collect and directly allocate the above information to your Facebook profile, you

will either have to log off from Facebook before visiting our site or run a "Facebook blocker" which stops the

Facebook plug-ins from running on our pages.

what options you have to protect your privacy, please read Facebook's Privacy Policy at:

If you invoke a corresponding website of our Internet presence, which contains such a plugin, a link between your

computer and the servers of Pinterest is established, and the plugin is displayed on the Internet page through a

notification to your browser. Here, your IP addresses as well as the information, as to which of our webpages you

have visited, is transmitted to the Pinterest server in the USA. This is irrespective of whether you are registered

with or logged in on Pinterest. Data is transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on

these sites.

Moreover, if you are a member of Pinterest, and if you are logged in on Pinterest during the period in which you

use the plugin, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Pinterest account and disclosed

to other users. Even in case of interactions, which are possible with various Pinterest plugins, the corresponding

information about you is collected and transmitted to Pinterest and stored there.

If you do not wish that Pinterest links and combines the information with the data of your Pinterest account, you

must log out from Pinterest before visiting our website.
