Use of Facebook plug-ins

This web site uses plug-ins created by the social network - operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). These can be identified through one of Facebook's logos (white "f" on a blue square or the "thumbs up" symbol) or through the label "Facebook social plug-in".

Opening web sites using such a plug-in on our internet portal establishes a connection to the Facebook servers, whereby the plug-in is being displayed by means of a message to your browser.  Thus, information on which of our web pages you have visited, is being forwarded to the Facebook servers. Should you be logged in as a member on Facebook during this process, Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook account. Through using the plug-in functions (e.g. through clicking on the "like" button or through posting a comment), this information, too, will be assigned to your Facebook account. You can only prevent this through logging out prior to using the plug-in.
