10. Social Media Plugins
On certain pages of this Site we may implement so-called social media plugins, in particular buttons connecting to the social media sites of Facebook, Inc., Google Inc. and Twitter, Inc. (“Social Media Sites”). When you visit a page that displays one or more of such buttons your browser will establish a direct connection to the respective servers of the Social Media Sites and load data via the button. The Social Media Sites will know that the respective page on our website has been visited.
We have no influence on the data that the Social Media Sites collect on the basis of the buttons. According to the available information, however, if you do not click on the respective buttons no personal data will be collected and stored unless you have logged onto to your account on the respective Social Media Sites. In that case, certain user data (including your IP address at the time) may be collected and linked to the account information already present at the respective Social Media Sites. If you wish to prevent this, please log out of your social media accounts before visiting this Site.
In addition, clicking a button may also lead to a collection of certain data, such as the user’s IP address. The Social Media Sites may set cookies as well, unless you have disabled the acceptance and storage of cookies in your browser settings (see the “Cookies” section above). We receive no information from the Social Media Sites about which social media buttons you may have clicked or seen on our website, but, if at all, we may receive a summarized statistical report of non-personal data relating to the use of the buttons.
