Use of the Facebook social plug-in:
This website uses the Facebook social plug-in. The plug-in is marked with the corresponding logos. If you use this plug-in by clicking on the corresponding button, a connection will be established, e.g. with Facebook’s servers. This will result in your data being transferred to a third country outside of Europe. As a result, the Facebook server will be sent information on which parts of our website you have visited. If you are logged into your Facebook account during this process, Facebook will link this information to your personal Facebook user account. If you click on the “Recommend” button, this information will be linked to your Facebook account. The only way to prevent this is by logging out of Facebook before using the plug-in. For more information on how Facebook collects and uses your data, what rights you have in relation to this, and what you can do to protect your privacy in this context, please refer to the Facebook Data Policy. If you do not want Facebook to be able to link your visit to our website with your Facebook user account,
please log out of your Facebook user account.
The provider’s website uses the “2 clicks for greater data protection” concept with regard to the Facebook plug-in.
Use of the YouTube social plug-in:
Our website uses plug-ins from YouTube, a website operated by Google. The provider of this website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a website with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. This process informs the YouTube servers as to which parts of our website you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account during this process, you will be allowing YouTube to link your browsing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account.
