Privacy statement for the Facebook plug-in (likes)

This website uses plug-ins provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 in the US. Users are advised that our website has the Facebook plug-in (like button) installed, which establishes a connection to Facebook resulting in a transfer of data to your browser so the plug-in can be displayed.

Also, use of the website entails the forwarding of data containing information on your visits to our website to Facebook servers. For Facebook users with an active log-in, this means that your usage information is associated with your personal Facebook account.

As soon as a logged-in Facebook user uses the Facebook plug-in (e.g. by clicking on the like button or using the comment function), that information is submitted to their Facebook account and published. The only way to prevent this from happening is by logging out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
