Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo. When you call up a web page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.
By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account.

Use of Instagram social plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Instagram.com (Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA; hereinafter “Instagram”).

You can recognise the plugins by the Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”. Your browser establishes a direct connection to the Instagram servers when you call up a page of our website with such a plugin. Instagram directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser, where it is integrated into the page. In this way, Instagram is informed that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website. This also applies if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.

Your browser sends this information together with your IP address directly to an Instagram server in the USA, where it is stored. If you log in to Instagram, your visit to our website can be directly assigned to your Instagram account by Instagram. If you work with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Instagram” button, Instagram also sends this information directly to a company-owned server where it is stored.

Furthermore, Instagram publishes this information on your Instagram account and shows it to your contacts there. You can prevent Instagram from directly assigning the data collected via our website to your Instagram account. To do this, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can find more information in Instagram’s privacy policy (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388).
