Social Plugins

We use Facebook and Instagram social plugins on our website. These enable you to share content from our website or to become inspired by our Facebook and Instagram postings.

The services are offered by Facebook Inc. and Instagram LLC ("Service Providers").
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and how they look here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins?locale=en_US
Instagram is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram"). You can find an overview of the Instagram buttons and how they look here: http://blog.instagram.com/post/36222022872/introducing-instagram-badge.

To improve protection of your data while you visit our website, we have embedded the plugins using a "2-click solution". This embedding ensures that when you retrieve a page from our internet presence that contains such plugins, a connection will not yet be made to the Facebook and Instagram servers. Only if you activate the plugins, thereby providing your consent to your data being transmitted, will your browser establish a direct connection to the Facebook or Instagram servers. The content of the respective plugins will be transferred by the relevant Service Providers directly to your browser and will be embedded into the web page. By embedding the plugins, the Service Providers will receive the information that your browser accessed our website, even if you do not have a profile at the Service Provider's website or if you are not logged in at that moment. This information (including, but not limited to, your IP address) will be sent directly to a server of the Service Provider in the USA by your browser and will be stored there.

If your are logged into one of the social networks, the Service Providers will be able to allocate the visit to our website directly to your Facebook or Instagram profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you press the "Share" button, this information will also be transferred directly to a server of the Service Providers will be stored there. The information will also be published in the social network/your Facebook account and will be shown to your contacts.
