By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile, or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly by your browser to a Facebook server in the USA, and stored there.


If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example using the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information will also be sent directly to a Facebook server and saved there. The information will also be published on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.


Facebook can use this information for advertising purposes, market research and requirements based design of the Facebook pages. For this Facebook creates use, interests and relationships profiles, e.g to evaluate your usage of our website regarding the advertisements displayed in Facebook, to inform other Facebook users of your activities on our website and to deliver other services associated with Facebook.
