Google Plus

Our website uses the +1 interface provided by the social network, Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). This button is distinguished by the +1 symbol on a white or coloured background.
When you open a website of ours that includes this kind of button, your browser will establish a direct connection with a Google server. The content of the +1 button is conveyed directly to your browser by Google and integrated into the website by your browser.

We therefore do not have any influence on the scope of the data that Google is able to capture via this button.

According to Google if you do not click on the button, no personal data will be captured. Data, including the IP address, is only captured and processed from members who are signed in to their account.

Information about the purpose and extent of capturing this data and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your respective rights and options to protect your personal privacy can be found in Google’s data privacy notifications about the +1 button:

Facebook plug-ins (“Like” button)

Our website integrates plug-ins for the social network, Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. You will recognize Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” buttons on our website. Please find an overview of the various Facebook plug-ins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server.
This enables Facebook to know that you ‒ with your IP address ‒ have visited their website. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are signed in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can allocate this interaction with our website to your user account.
