Facebook Social Plugins
Our web site uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social networking site,, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identified by a Facebook logo or the phrase “Facebook social plugin”.

The content of the plugins is transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook and included by it in the web page. When you access the plugins, Facebook is notified of the fact that you have called up the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. The reason for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook's privacy policy.

Use of Google+
For our websites, we use the “+1″ button from the Google Plus social network run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button contains the “+1″ Symbol and is on a white or colored background.
If you open part of our website containing such a button, your browser will directly connect with Google's servers. Google directly sends the content of the “+1″ button to your browser, which embeds the content in the website. We do not have any influence over how much and which data Google collects via this button. We assume, however, that your IP address is recorded.
To learn more about the purpose and scope of the data collected and to see how Google processes and uses the data, visit Google's data protection information on the “+1″ button to see what your rights are, what settings you can make, and how you can protect your privacy:
