Use of Facebook Social Plugins
This website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network site facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, U.S. ("Facebook"). Facebook plugins are recognizable by the Facebook Logo (white "f" over blue tile or a "thumbs up" icon) or include the words "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearances of the Facebook Social plugins can be seen at: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you open a website on our Internet page that contains one of these plugins, your browser will establish a direct connection with Facebook's servers. The contents of the plugin are transferred directly to your browser from Facebook and are then integrated in the website. For that reason, we have no influence on the contents of the information that Facebook collects using this plugin and will pass on any information that we have. Through the linking plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the relevant page on our website.
If you are logged into Facebook, then Facebook can associate the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example if you activate the Like button or leave a comment, the relevant information is sent directly to Facebook from your browser and is saved there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still a chance that Facebook will obtain your IP address and store it. For information on the purpose and scope of data collection, as well as further processing and utilization of the information by Facebook, including your rights, and settings options for protecting your privacy, please read the data security information from Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect information about you from this site and link it to your Facebook information, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our site.
