Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

Facebook social plug-ins privacy policy

So-called social plug-ins from Facebook Inc. are installed on our website. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the "Like" button (hand with thumb raised) or by a clear "Facebook plug-in" label. A social plug-in is a small part of Facebook that is integrated into our page. Each plug-in has its own function. The most used functions are the well-known “Like” and “Share” buttons.

Facebook offers the following social plug-ins:

"Save" button
Like button, share, send and quote
Pages plug-in
Messenger plug-in
Embedded posts and video player
Groups plug-in

At https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins you can find more information on how the individual plug-ins are used. We use the social plug-ins on the one hand to offer you a better user experience on our site, and on the other hand because Facebook can optimize our advertisements.

If you have a Facebook account or have already visited facebook.com, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our website or interact with social plug-ins (e.g. the "Like" button).

The information received will be deleted or anonymized within 90 days. According to Facebook, this data includes your IP address, which website you have visited, the date, time and other information relating to your browser.

In order to prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it to Facebook data, you must log out of Facebook while visiting the website.

If you are not logged in to Facebook or do not have a Facebook account, your browser sends less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. Nevertheless, data such as your IP address or which website you visit can be transmitted to Facebook. We would like to expressly point out that we do not know the exact content of the data exactly. However, based on our current state of knowledge, we try to inform you as best we can about data processing. How Facebook uses the data can also be found in the company's data policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.

The following cookies are set in your browser at least when you visit a website with social plug-ins from Facebook:

Name: dpr
Value: not specified
Purpose: This cookie is used so that the social plug-ins on our website work.
Expiration date: after the session ends

Name: fr
Value: 0jieyh4311138156c2GnlufEJ9..Bde09j… 1.0.Bde09j
Purpose: The cookie is also necessary for the plug-ins to function properly.
Expiration date: after 3 months

Note: These cookies were set after a test, even if you are not a Facebook member.

If you are logged in to Facebook, you can change your settings for advertisements yourself at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. If you are not a Facebook user, you can basically manage your usage-based online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. There you have the option to deactivate or activate providers.
