When you access a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser creates a direct link to the Facebook servers.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there

When you interact with the plug-ins, for example press the “Like” button or submit a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.

We undertake to delete the personal data which are processed for our own purposes as soon as knowledge of them for fulfilment of the purpose of their storage is no longer required. If legal, statutory, or contractual legal grounds preclude the deletion of personal data, there are grounds for assuming that by deleting the data, protectable interests of the person affected would be compromised or deletion is not possible due to the particular storage type or the necessary effort to do so would be disproportionate, data will be blocked instead of deleted.
You can also have the data we collect concerning your person blocked, corrected or deleted at any time. The deletion shall also be carried out when you revoke your consent to the collection, processing and use of personal data. If the revocation takes place during a current business transaction, the data will be deleted immediately after it has been concluded. Any further statutory deletion or blocking obligations remain unaffected thereby.
