3. Social plugins

The website may use Social Plugins ("Plugins") including those of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The Plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white "f" on blue background or a "thumbs up" icon) or are labelled with the phrase "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the look of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: When User visits Website that contains a social Plugin of this kind, the browser creates a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the Plugin is transmitted directly to your browser from Facebook and incorporated into the Website from this. The provider has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects using this Plugin and informs the User of his knowledge accordingly: by integrating the Plugin, Facebook receives the information that a User has accessed on the Website’s corresponding page. If the User is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If Users interact with the Plugins, for example, press the “Like” button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a User is not a member of Facebook, there is possibility that Facebook will find out and store their IP address. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and ways to protect the privacy of the Users can be found in Facebook's privacy policies: If a User is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them and has already connected using their saved member data, they must log out of Facebook before visiting the Website. It is also possible to block Facebook social Plugins with add-ons for your browser, such as the "Facebook Blocker".
