Use of Facebook Social Plugins

We offer you the opportunity to recommend providers, offers, services and/or products via Facebook. For this we use social plugins from Facebook. These services are provided by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US.

When building the website in your browser, the code of the social plugins is queried directly by your browser from a Facebook server and integrated into the website appearing in your browser. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data accessed by Facebook in this context.

According to its own information, Facebook stores the date and time of your visit for a period of 90 days, the specific Internet address on which the social plugin is located, and other technical data such as the IP address, browser type, operating system in order to further optimize Facebook services. After the 90 days have elapsed, the data will be made anonymous so that they can no longer be associated with you.

If you are logged in to Facebook during your visit to our website, Facebook can map the pages you visit to your account on Facebook. By interacting with the social plugins (clicking etc.), the information generated by the interaction is transmitted to Facebook and stored there. You can prevent this by logging out of Facebook before you visit our website.

Google +1

Our website offers you the possibility to mark providers, offers, services and/or products etc. with the “+1″-Button of Google and to recommend them via your Google Plus network. This service is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

When you set up the website in your browser, the code of the “+1″ button is requested directly from a Google server by your browser and integrated into the website that appears in your browser. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data accessed by Google.

According to its own information, Google collects both the information that you have given for a content +1, and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked on +1, i.e. the Internet address, as well as your IP address and other browser-related information. Google has unified its data protection declarations as of 1 March 2012. The current data protection statement no longer explains the use of the +1 button. The current +1-Buttons Privacy Policy, and Google Plus Privacy Policy are no longer available..

If you are logged in to Google with your account, the information collected will be associated with your account/plus account. Your +1 can appear in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads, along with your profile name and photo.

Google does not record your visits to the Internet or your browser history on a permanent basis and does not evaluate your visit to a page with a +1 button in any other way. However, Google does store some information about your visit for a short time, usually for about two weeks, for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured according to individual profiles, user names or URLs. Here you will find further information from Google.

You always have control over your +1 content. You can manage all your +1s via the +1 tab in your Google profile. If you do not want Google to collect information about you through our web pages and link it to your Google Plus account and/or Google Account, you must log out of Google before visiting our site.

According to its own statements, Twitter Inc. stores the transmitted message of the tweet and its metadata. In our opinion, this includes: date and time of the tweet, the specific, possibly shortened Internet address on which the tweet button is located, and other technical data such as the IP address, the browser type, your operating system.
