Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the internet browser used by the person visiting the site.

Use of Facebook social plugins

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or with the suffix "Facebook social plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

If you call up a page of our website that has a plugin of this kind, your browser sets up a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is passed by Facebook direct to your browser and integrated by it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data which Facebook obtains with the help of this plugin and therefore inform you according to our information status.

Through integration of the plugins, Facebook obtains the information that you have called up a corresponding page of our website. If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, by using the "Like" button", for example, or by posting a comment, the information will be given directly to Facebook by your browser and stored there. If you are not a Facebook member, it is still possible for Facebook to find out and store your IP address.

For information on the purpose and extent of data capture and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well your rights in this regard and turn-off options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information.

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you through our website and link the data to your member data saved with Facebook, you must log off from Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, by using the "Facebook Blocker" for example.
