Social plug-ins from Facebook

We use social plug-ins from, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. As default, the Facebook plug-in is switched off. In order to activate it, e.g. to like a post or to leave a comment you need to activate the switch. The plug-ins can be recognized by way of the Facebook logo or the supplement “Facebook Social Plug-in”. Only if activated, a click on the “Like” button or leave a comment, transmits the relevant information directly from your browser to Facebook where it is stored. Furthermore, Facebook makes your likes public for your Facebook friends. If you are logged into Facebook, it can assign the invocation of our page directly to your Facebook account. When the Facebook plug-in is activated, even if you are not logged in or don’t have a Facebook account, your browser sends information (e.g. which web pages you have called up, your IP address) which is then stored by Facebook.
