SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGINS
Our website uses social media plugins from the providers listed below. Which plugin belongs to which provider can be recognized by the respective logo with which the plugin is marked. If you visit one of our pages on which a plugin is implemented, a connection between your browser and the provider's servers is automatically established with the respective provider of the plugin. At this point, data is transferred to the provider already. In addition, data is transmitted to the provider as a result of further interaction with the respective social plugin (e.g. clicking the "Like-Me-Button on Facebook, Re-Tweet-Button on Twitter). If you have an account with the provider, this data can be linked to it. To prevent such a linking of your data, you can log out of the provider's service before visiting our site.

If you interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and is stored there.
