Privacy policy for the use of Facebook plug-ins (“Like” button)

 

Our website features embedded plug-ins from social network provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. You can recognize the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” buttons on our website. An overview of Facebook plug-ins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US.

 

When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. This notifies Facebook that you visited our website with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged on to your Facebook account, you can link content from our pages to your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to associate your visit to our site with your user account. Please note: As the host of this website, we have no knowledge of the data that is transferred or how Facebook uses this information.

Privacy policy for the use of Google+

 

Our pages use Google+ features provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

 

Collection and sharing of information: The Google+ button allows you to publish information globally. The Google+ button offers you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google collects the information you provide for content +1 and data about the page you were on when you clicked +1. Your +1 clicks can be displayed together with your profile name and photo in Google services such as in search results or in your Google profile, or other places on websites and web ads.

 

Google collects information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible and public Google profile that contains at least the name you have selected as your profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace a different name that you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or other information that can identify you.

 

Use of the collected information: In addition to the above uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data privacy provisions. Google may publish aggregated statistics on the +1 activities of users and/or share this information with users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
