Facebook

Plugins of the network facebook.com (http://www.facebook.com), which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA ('Facebook'), are used on our websites in protected form.

With the so-called "Like" (or "Like") button of Facebook, website operators can give Facebook users a way to link the web content offered by the website operators with one click in the Facebook profiles. But how do Facebook's like buttons actually work? Which data is collected and transmitted to Facebook?

What is Facebook's Like button?
The so called "Like" (or "Like") button of Facebook can be placed by website operators on their own website. By clicking on this button registered users of Facebook can automatically leave a note in their Facebook profile that they approve of the linked contents of the website operator.
The integrated Facebook button "communicates" with Facebook on an ongoing basis. For example, the graphical display of the button changes when a web page visitor is logged into his or her Facebook account at the same time.
This enables Facebook to exchange data. This data exchange also takes place if the Like button is not clicked. The link already takes place through the code set by Facebook on the website.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store your IP address.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the

Facebook Privacy Notice: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".
