When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are currently not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign the visit to our website to your Facebook profile. When you interact with the plugins, For example, press the “Like” button or leave a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a server of Facebook and stored there. The information will also be posted on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo for example in the form of a blue “Twitter bird.” An overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons 

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connection to the servers of Twitter.

Because of this integration Twitter receives the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Twitter or are just not logged into Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a server of Twitter in the US and stored there.

If you are logged into Twitter, Twitter can connect your visit to our site to your Twitter account directly. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Tweet” button, you agree that the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of Twitter and stored there. The information will also be published on your Twitter account and may be presented to your contacts.
