Privacy policy for Facebook, Google+ and Twitter plug-ins (Like button)

Plugins of the social networks Google+, Twitter and Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our website. The Facebook plugins can be recognised by the Facebook logo or the "like button" on our site. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Normally, a direct connection is established between your browser and the servers of the social media service providers Google+, Twitter and Facebook through the respective plugin. This way the provider receives the information that you have visited our page with your IP address.

We have built a special protection and thus particularly meet the laws on data protection Because: Only after you enable these buttons and thus consent to communicate with Facebook, Google or Twitter, they become active and establish the connection to the social networks.

The 2-click system

The connection to the social media services is established only on the second click of the particular button. If you are already logged into the social network of your choice, then Facebook and Google+ opens without opening another window. A pop-up window appears for Twitter, where you can edit the text of the tweet.

Clicking on one of these buttons therefore means that you are granting your consent as a user to share data with the particular operator of the social network. But only for this one site and the selected service. The disabled button reappears when other TMGS pages are opened. Thus, you can use the social networks without them creating complete surfing profiles.

It is also possible to activate all the buttons permanently.
For persons who consider data transfer as immaterial and for whom convenience is important, such persons can permanently activate the button of the social network that they regularly use. To do this, tick the appropriate check-box under the gear icon and then it has the same status as on many other websites: The selected button is always directly active. This can be changed later again using the gear icon.

Facebook
Please note that as provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data and its usage by Facebook. You can find further information on this in the data protection policy of Facebook at  https://en-gb.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our website to your Facebook user account, then please logout of your Facebook account.
