Integration of services and content from third parties

Our offerings sometimes include content, services and performances from other providers.

The transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary so that this data can be called up and displayed in the user’s browser.

We integrate plug-ins from the social network Facebook (address: 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) on our website. You can recognize the plug-ins – you can find an overview here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/Plug-ins/ – on the Like button or on the Facebook logo.

If you call up one of our websites with a Facebook plug-in, a direct connection to Facebook is established. We have no influence on the type and scope of the data that Facebook collects, stores and processes. We can only inform you according to our level of knowledge.

Facebook is informed via the plug-in that you have accessed the corresponding website of our offer. This also applies to users who are not registered on Facebook. In this case there is the possibility that Facebook will save the IP address.

If you are a member of Facebook and logged in, calling up a website with a Facebook plug-in can be clearly assigned to your Facebook user account. In addition, the plug-ins transmit all interactions, for example if you use the Like button or leave a comment.

To prevent Facebook from storing data about you, please log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also block the plug-ins with add-ons for the browser (for example “Facebook Blocker”).
