Is data being transmitted to social networks?
On our offering, we integrate so-called social plugins of social networks. In particular, this concerns the “Like”-button of the social network facebook.com by the company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) and the “+1”-button of the social network Google Plus by the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This allows you to share this offering respectively its contents to friends on Facebook, as well as to other users of Google Plus. For example, if the “Like” button is clicked, on your Facebook page appears a message that you recommend our offering. If you use the Google Plus “+1” button, the recommendation appears on your Google Plus profile or appears in the search results of the search engine “Google”. Moreover, such recommendation may be displayed on the Internet on websites and ads associated with your profile name and profile photo.
If you visit a site of our offering that contains such a social plugin of Facebook, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the social plugin is transferred directly by Facebook to your browser which embeds the latter into the offering. Therefore we have no impact on the amount of data Facebook is collecting with the help of this social plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge. Facebook is through the integration of the social plugin aware of which site of the offering you did access. While you are logged in to your Facebook account, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the social plugin, such as click on the “Like” button, the corresponding information with this interaction is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and is stored there. If you have no account on Facebook your IP address will be, according to Facebook, anonymously stored in Germany. If you have an account on Facebook and you do not wish that Facebook collects information about you through this offering you must log out of Facebook before visiting the offering.
If you visit a site of our offering which contains such a social plugin of Google, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google. The content of the social plugin, the “+1” button, is transferred directly by Google to your browser which embeds the latter into the offering. Therefore we have no impact on the amount of data Google is collecting with the help of this social plugin, but according to Google no personal data is collected, if you do not click on the button. Personal data including your IP address are collected and processed only if you are logged into your Google account.
