§5 use of social plug-ins (Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram)
5.1 Facebook social plug-ins
This website uses so-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook social plug-in” or “Facebook social plug-in”. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance here: www.developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
If you call up a page of our advertising presence that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website.
By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. confirm the “Like” button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and tailoring the Facebook pages to your needs. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements shown to you via Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide additional information about the use of Facebook to provide related services.
If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
5.2 Use of Instagram
We use the Instagram service on our website. Instagram is a service provided by Instagram LLC, 1601 WillowRd, Menlo Park CA 94025 USA. Through the integrated Instagram button on our website, Instagram receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. The button can be recognized by the stylized camera. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can assign this visit to our site to your Instagram account and link the data. The data transmitted by clicking the Instagram button is saved by Instagram.
Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection, its processing and use as well as your rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Instagram’s data protection information, which you can access at https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875/?helpref=hc_fnav&bc=Instagram%20Help&bc=Policies%20and%20Reporting.

However, they do not contain any information with which users can be personally identified.
You can object to this use if you do not want to participate in tracking by preventing the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly.
