In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, the plug-ins are initially integrated into the page deactivated by means of a so-called „2-click“ solution. Deactivated plugins can be recognized by their grey background. This integration ensures that when you access a page on our website that contains such plug-ins, no connection is established with the Facebook servers. Your browser only establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers when you activate the plug-ins and thus give your consent to the data transfer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The content of the respective plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. The plugin then transmits data (including your IP address) to Facebook. We have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of the plugins. To the best of our knowledge, Facebook receives information about which of our websites you have currently and previously visited. By integrating the plugins, Facebook also receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website if you do not have a profile on Facebook or are not currently logged in. The information collected (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your contacts.

You can revoke your consent at any time by deactivating the activated plugin by clicking it again. However, the revocation has no effect on the data that has already been transferred to Facebook.

Facebook Inc., headquartered in the USA, is certified for the us European data protection agreement „Privacy Shield“, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
