Data protection for the use of Facebook plugins (like button)
On our pages, plugins from the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, are integrated. You can recognize the Facebook plugins on the Facebook logo or the « Like-Button » on our page. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our pages, the plug-in creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook will be informed that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook « Like button » while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit of our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that as a provider of the pages we do not receive any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data as well as their use by Facebook. For more information, see Facebook’s Privacy Statement at http://en-de.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the visit of our pages with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as a site operator. An encrypted connection indicates that the browser’s address line changes from « http: // » to « https: // » and the lock icon in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us can not be read by third parties.
