Social Media Plug-ins and Facebook
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social networking site facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be identified by one of Facebook’s logos (a white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs-up” icon), or the phrase “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list of Facebook social plugins and their appearances can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
While visiting our website your browser will contact the Facebook server and load the visual presentation of the plugin as well as present it to you. During your visit Facebook receives information concerning your visit to our website as well as further data such as your IP address.
These activated plugins allow Facebook to know that you have visited this particular page on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook at the time, it can associate your visit to the page to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the ‘Like’ button or by posting a comment, the information you give is then sent directly to Facebook and saved there. If you do not have a Facebook account, it is still possible for Facebook to identify and store your IP address after you have clicked the Facebook note.
To find out more detail about Facebook’s data collection practices and your respective rights and privacy options, please see Facebook’s Data Protection Policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you from our website and connect it to your member data saved on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website and clicking the Facebook note.
