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.

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 do not have a Facebook profile, the plugins may still transmit your IP-address to Facebook.  For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, please visit Facebook’s Privacy Policy:
