Facebook Social Plugins
Our Website uses social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the label “Facebook Social Plug-in”.
Whenever you access a Web page on our Website that contains one of these plug-in, your browser establishes a direct link to Facebook’s servers. The plug-in content is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates the content into the Web page.
Integrating the plug-in sends information to Facebook indicating that you have accessed the corresponding page on our Website. The Internet address of the Web page you visited (including your IP address) is transmitted to one of Facebook’s servers in the USA where it is saved. As a rule, it is also not possible for Facebook to identify you personally based on the dynamically assigned IP address your Internet provider saves while you surf the Web. Once it has been published on Facebook, this information is not processed further or forwarded to third parties, and it is anonymised after a period of three months, so that the information is no longer associated with any particular user. This does not apply when you visit our Website and are logged on to Facebook at the same time. In this case, Facebook can share information about your visit with your Facebook account.
In the event that you interact with plug-ins, for example by pressing the “Like” button or submitting a comment, the corresponding information is transferred from your browser directly to Facebook and saved there.
If you are a member of Facebook and do not wish to share information about your visit to our Website with Facebook, you will need to log off of Facebook before visiting our Website.
What about "cookies"?
Cookies do not damage your system or impair its function in any way. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site and other websites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
What about “links”?
How do we make sure your information is secure?
Protecting your information is a priority for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your on-line information. The SSL encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information on-line, we also do everything in our power to protect personally identifiable information off-line. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job to fulfil the services to our customers (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
Protection of children’s privacy?
We are concerned about the safety of children in their use of the Internet. We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we receive actual knowledge that a member is under the age of 13 and has registered without the permission of his or her parent or guardian, we will remove from our files all personally identifiable registration information about that child.
How do I change or delete my information?
You have the right to request access to, correction or deletion of the information about you held by us. If you wish to access, correct or delete your personal information with us, please inform us by sending an e-mail message to email@example.com. Clicking the hotlink will activate the pop-up message box.
How do I remove my information from e-mail and postal mailing lists?
We want to communicate with you only if you wish to hear from us. If you would rather not receive marketing or promotional communication from us, please inform us by sending an e-mail message “re: off” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Clicking the hotlink will activate the pop-up message box.
We are committed to safeguard your privacy with us. We use the information we collect on-line to enhance and improve your experience of being served by us. The supply of personal information to us is entirely voluntary. We do not sell or rent your personal information to others. We want to communicate with you only if you wish to hear from us.
