Using plug-ins from social networks
This website uses social plug-ins from the following social networks: Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA; Google+, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA; and Twitter, operated by Twitter Inc., Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The plug-ins are represented by the logo of each social network.
In general terms, this connection that your browser makes as soon as you open our website uses the social plug-ins to create a direct connection with the Facebook, Google and Twitter servers. The content of the plug-ins is transferred directly to your browser by Facebook, Google and Twitter which then link your browser to the website you visit. Therefore we have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook, Google and Twitter collect in this way. According to our current level of knowledge, they include the following information:
The social network operators receive the information that you have accessed on the various pages of our website through their social plug-ins. If you are logged into a social network at the same time, the operator can allocate the relevant visits to your account in the corresponding social network. If you interact further with the social plug-ins, that is, by clicking on the “Like” button or commenting, then the corresponding information will be transmitted to the relevant social network.
We understand that the following data will be transmitted:
- IP address
- Browser version and operating system
- Previous web pages visited (referrer) if you followed a link
- Screen resolution
- Plug-ins installed such as Adobe® Flash® or Adobe® Reader®
- URL of the page to which the Facebook Like button is linked
Even if you are not a member of one of these social networks, it is possible that they can learn your IP address through the social plug-in and may store it. Details about the purpose and scope of data processing, collection and use by Facebook, Google and Twitter, and your rights and settings options relating to them may be found in the privacy guidelines:
- Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
- Google+: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy
- Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/privacy
If you are a member of one of these social networks and do not want them to collect information about you from our website and connect it to your membership data, you should log out of the social network before you access our website.
You can prevent data from being transmitted. Use the security settings in your browser to do this (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari). Instructions can be found in the “Help” section of your browser.
Furthermore, you also have the option of blocking social plug-ins by using your browser’s add-ons such as “Facebook Blocker” that can be downloaded here: http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/
