Direct contact with Facebook is only possible if you actually click on one of the buttons. The reason for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and the data privacy settings options, are set out in Facebook’s privacy policy and below.
If you do not want Facebook to use your personal data or to obtain information about your use of the internet, please do not click on any of the social media buttons.

This website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The data collected by the plugins is transferred to Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.   The plugins are identifiable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or the additional text “Facebook Social Plugin”.
As soon as you click on one of these plugins a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. Clicking on a plugin informs Facebook of your IP address and the webpages that users of this IP address have visited. If you are logged on to Facebook when you visit a website with a like button, Facebook can link the website visit to your Facebook account.  If you interact with plugins, e.g. if you use the like button or post a comment, the information will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there.
