Using Facebook plugins
Plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo
Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), are used on these webpages.
If you invoke webpages of our Internet presence, which are provided with such a plugin, a link is established with
the Facebook servers and the plugin is displayed on the webpage through a notification to your browser. Which of
our webpages you have visited is transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in on Facebook,
Facebook allocates this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions
(e.g. clicking the “Like” button, entering a comment), even this information is allocated to your Facebook account,
which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin. If you do not want Facebook to assign all
acquired information to your Facebook profile immediately, you must either log out of your account before visiting
our site or must use add-on provided by Facebook for your browser

On these webpages, the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre

webpage of our Internet presence, which is provided with the “+1” button, a link is established with the Google

your IP address as well as the information, as to which of our Internet sites you have visited, is forwarded to the
Google server. This is independent of whether you have registered with or are logged in on Google Plus. Data is
transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on these sites. The “+1” button is not used
to record your visits on the Internet. When displaying a “+1” button, Google does not permanently log your
browser history and also does not analyse your visit to a page with “+1” button in another manner. Google saves
the data of your visit for about two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this
data is not structured as per the individual profiles, user names or URLs, and is also not forwarded to us.

which you use the plugin, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Google Plus Account
and disclosed to other users. Even in case of interactions, which are possible with various Google plugins, the
corresponding information about you is collected and transmitted to Google and stored there. For an overview of

Google to allocate the collected information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must first log out of Google
Plus before visiting our site.
