Social Media Plug-Ins

This website uses social media plugins of various social networks that enable you to share content from our website with your contacts in the social networks or to recommend this content, for example. The social media plugins can be recognized by the logo of the respective social network.

We use social media plugins from the following social network operators:

  • Facebook: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
  • Twitter: Twitter Inc., Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA

Through the integration of the plugin, the operators of the social networks receive the information that you accessed the respective pages of our online presence. If you are at the same time logged in to a social network, the operator can associate these page views with your account on the respective social network. If you then go on to interact with the social media plugins, e.g., clicking the Facebook “Like” button, that information is also transmitted to the respective social network. Even if you are not a member of any said social networks, it is possible that via the social plugin they may become aware of your IP address and store it.
