Use of Facebook Plug-ins on our Website
Our Webpages feature Facebook programs. These so-called plug-ins are not operated by us but exclusively by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. You can tell the plug-ins by their Facebook logo (white “f” in a blue square) or the Facebook Like-Button (raised thumb in a blue square).
When visiting one of our Webpages that include such a plug-in, your Internet browser will build up a direct connection with the Facebook servers. Facebook will directly relay the plug-ins’ contents to your browser, which then plugs them into the Webpage. We have no influence whatsoever on the scope of the data Facebook collects with this plug-in.
As far as we know, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our Webpage. If you are a Facebook member and logged into your Facebook account when visiting our Webpage, Facebook is able to correlate this visit to your Facebook account. With every interaction with the plug-ins, e.g. when clicking on the Like-Button, this information is automatically relayed by your Internet browser to Facebook, where it is stored. If you want to prevent that, you have to log out of your Facebook account prior to, for example, clicking on the Like-Button. Even if you are not a Facebook member, Facebook can get hold of your IP address and store it.
You can block the Facebook plug-ins by adjusting your Internet browser’s settings and through special Facebook blockers you will find on the Net for free.
