We use social media plug-ins on our website. For the scope of data collection, processing and usage, the following provisions apply, as well as the conditions of the respective provider:

1. Facebook

On our website, we have the "Like Button" plug-in, linked to the web platform Facebook. Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA is responsible for this plug-in. Possible manifestations of the plug-in can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

By using the "Like Button", you can share with your friends on Facebook that you like the pages of our website you have visited. We have no influence on the type and scope of data collection and processing that Facebook carries out using the plug-in. We therefore inform you, to our present state of knowledge:

If you access a page in which the social plug-in "Like Button" is embedded, a connection with the servers of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA is established through your browser, independent of whether or not you are a registered Facebook user.

The extent of the data submitted through this connection is similar to that submitted when directly accessing www.facebook.com. The following data is submitted to and stored, if applicable, by Facebook:

• Website address of the page you have accessed; the site containing the "Like Button"
• Your IP address
• Your browser type
• Your operating system

Using this data, a user profile can be generated. You may be shown interest-related, internet content, including advertising. The submission and storage of data can occur anywhere in the world, due to the computing capacity available worldwide. If you are a registered Facebook user, this data is also assigned to your user profile. For further details on the purpose and scope of data collected and processed through using the "Like Button", as well as your rights and the privacy protection provisions provided by Facebook, see the information at:

www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

If you click on the "Like Button", you link the site you are currently visiting with your Facebook profile. Before doing so, you have the opportunity to write a text-based post.

Provided that the browser you are using is equipped with extensions, it is also possible to limit the collection and transfer of data through the "Like Button" through the appropriate Add-ons, so-called Facebook Blockers (possible for Opera, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome).

If you do not wish your visit to our website to be linked with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

• Website address of the page you have accessed; the site containing the "Twitter" element

• Your browser type
• Your operating system
