4.2 Facebook

This website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Social Plug-in from Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. Through the integration of the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or making 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 may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the design of Facebook pages according 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 displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook. 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. For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

4.3 Twitter

This offer uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognizable by terms such as “Twitter” or “follow” associated with a stylized blue bird. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or follow the provider on Twitter. When a user calls up a website of this Internet presence that contains such a button, his browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter button is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs the users according to its state of knowledge. According to this, only the IP address of the user, the URL of the respective website is transmitted when the button is obtained, but it is not used for any other purpose than to display the button. Further information on this can be found in the Twitter privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

This allows Pinterest to associate visits to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the Pinterest Pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or how Pinterest uses it.
