3.2 Social Network plug-in
On the Website(s), plug-ins for the social networks (“network”) have been or may be integrated. When you access the Website(s), these plug-ins can potentially create a direct connection between your browser and the server of the respective network. The content of the plug-in will be directly transmitted from the network to your browser, which will integrate it into the Website(s). We have no control regarding the scope of the data which is collected with the aid of the plug-in. The integrated plug-in informs the network that the user has accessed our website and informs the network of the user's IP address. If the user is logged in to the network of this plug-in at that point in time, the network will be able to link the visit with the user's account.
If the user interacts with the plug-ins, for example in the case of Twitter by clicking on “Tweet This” or with Facebook by clicking the ‘I like’ button or making a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from the user's browser to the network where it will then be stored. Furthermore, additional personal data may also be transmitted and stored there, for example the user's IP address, personal browser settings and other parameters.
If you are a member of the respective network and do not want it to collect information about you via the Website(s) and to link this information with the data that the network has already stored about you, then please close the Website(s), log out from your user account for the respective network and afterwards visit the Website(s) once again.
If you are not a member of the network or you have logged from the network before visiting the Website(s), the possibility still exists that the network will ascertain (at least) your IP address and store it. Please note that this information is already exchanged when you visit the Website(s), regardless whether you interact with the plug-ins or not.
