Social Media (Features) and Widgets
We use social plug-ins ("Plug-ins") of the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States ("Facebook"). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the word "Facebook Social Plug-In".
When you visit one of our websites which contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is sent from Facebook directly to your browser and then integrated into the website.
Through the integration of plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the appropriate page on our site. If you are logged into Facebook while visiting our site, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you use the plug-ins to interact, for example, use the "Like" button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is sent directly from your browser and stored on Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to gather information about you on our website, you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
