Facebook

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please see

http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge: The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook. For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook’s privacy policy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“.

Google +1

This Internet site uses the “+1” button of the Google Plus social network, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is recognizable from the “+1” symbol on a white or colored background. If you open a webpage with such a button on our Internet site, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google’s servers. The content of the “+1” button is sent by Google directly to your browser and integrated by Google into the webpage. We therefore have no influence on the extent of data that Google collects using the button but assume that this includes your IP address. Further data is collected and processed by Google from members logged into Google +. The purpose and extent of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Google and your related rights and privacy options can be found in Google’s privacy policy regarding the “+1” button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html. If you are a Google Plus member and do not wish Google to collect data about you via our Internet site and link these with your membership data stored at Google, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our Internet site.

Linkedin

This site uses the social plugins (“plugins”) of the linkedin.com social networking site (“LinkedIn”) operated by the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The button can be identified by the “LinkedIn-Logo” or “Share-Button” on this webpage. When a user accesses a web page on this site that features one of these buttons, the browser establishes a direct connection with LinkedIn’s servers as soon as the LinkedIn button is pressed. LinkedIn then transfers the content of the “in” button directly to the user’s browser, which integrates the content into the web page. The provider has no control over the amount of data that LinkedIn collects via the button after the user clicks on it. Thanks to the integration of the plugin, LinkedIn knows that you have accessed the relevant page of our website. If you are logged in to LinkedIn, LinkedIn can recognize you based on your LinkedIn account and record your visit. If users want to find out what data LinkedIn collects about them and why, how it processes and uses their data, and what rights and settings they can assert to protect their privacy, they should refer to LinkedIn’s data protection policy.
