Diverse functions can be linked to other providers such as Facebook (e. g.: “Like“), Twitter or Google+, and are characterized by their corresponding logos. If these links are used, and if a registration is necessary with the respective provider, the data protection clauses of the respective provider apply to this content:


  • “If, e. g., plugins of the network 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (‘Facebook’) are used, these plugins are recognizable by the Facebook logo or an appropriate additional remark.”


If you access a page using one of those plugins, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the pages of Facebook. Since this is a direct transmission, we do not receive any information about the transferred data. We are merely made aware that you have accessed the corresponding page. If you are logged in with Facebook at the same time, this information is assigned to your Facebook account and thus becomes personal data. The same applies, of course, when you use the plugins (‘Like’) or add comments. “If you want to avoid any direct data communication to your Facebook account, it is recommended that you only visit our pages when you are not logged in on Facebook.“
