This data is used by the website operator to ensure that the website creates added value for visitors, for example by providing content which is adapted to users' needs.

Social Plug-ins

One of the features on this website is its use of what are called social plug-ins (e.g., the “like” button) from the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Interacting with these plug-ins, e.g., by pressing the “like” button, automatically sends the information in question to your Facebook account and informs your network of friends that you like the content you have just visited. To this extent, our website allows for a continuous data exchange with Facebook.
Please note that an exchange of such information takes place upon visiting our internet presence regardless of whether you activate the social plug-in or are already logged in to Facebook.
If you don’t want Facebook to generate a specific profile based on this activity, log out from Facebook completely. Simply closing the Facebook page does not suffice.
For information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how data is further processed and used by Facebook, along with your rights and optional settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection explanation.

Facebook Connect

When available, a “Facebook Connect Button” offered by this website provides you the opportunity to log on to our site using your Facebook user data. Additionally, Facebook Connect can automatically implement information on your activities on our website directly in your Facebook profile. To this extent, activating the button signals your express consent to both allow your Facebook user data to be accessed as well as to have information and activities published on your Facebook profile. Express consent must be on record for the additional use of data (e.g., for you to be contacted via your e-mail address). Please note that Facebook receives information regarding this website, including information pertaining to your activities on it, via the Facebook Connect application. To customize the method of establishing contacts, it is possible for Facebook in some cases to receive limited information before the application or website is officially authorized. For information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how data is further processed and used by Facebook, along with your rights and optional settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection explanation.
