As part of our online marketing, we use so-called social plugins, which are operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 (Ireland). Such plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos, such as a white “f” on a blue background, or “like” or “like” buttons. You can learn more about Facebook Social Plugins here:

If such a social plugin is used, the user’s device establishes a connection with the Facebook servers. Facebook creates individual usage profiles on the basis of the processed data, whereby we have no influence on the extent of the data collected by Facebook with the help of the social plugins.

Through the social plugins, Facebook can not only determine that a user has called up the particular website, but can also (with an existing Facebook profile) assign it to a profile. If these users then “link”, “post” or “comment” something, this is transferred directly to Facebook and stored there. If someone does not have a Facebook profile, Facebook may identify and store the user’s IP address. According to Facebook, however, only an anonymous IP address is stored.

The extent to which Facebook collects the user’s data and how it is processed can be seen in Facebook’s privacy policy. In addition, you will also find your own rights and settings to protect the user’s privacy:

In order for the data of a Facebook member not to be stored, the user must log out before using our Facebook page and delete his cookies. Further settings can be made directly under the Facebook profile settings:
