These are web analysis tools used to compile statistics and graphs that provide information on the use of our Internet pages. The usage data collected for this purpose is transferred to a specific server that can be located abroad depending on the provider of the web analytics instrument. For the most commonly used, Google Analytics, the recorded data is transferred with the shortened IP address, which prevents any possibility of identifying particular devices.

How do we use social plugins?

Our web pages use social plugins, such as those of social networking service providers Facebook and Instagram. Indicated by the logo of the service providers in question, these plugins can consist of buttons such as “I like”.

If you call our web pages containing such a plugin, your browser creates a direct link to the provider’s server. The content of the plugin will be transmitted directly to your browser by the provider’s site, then integrated by him in the Internet page consulted. As a result of this plugin integration, the service provider is informed of what you have called the web page. And if you are already logged in to the latter, he can link the page visit to your profile. When you interact with the plugin, for example by clicking on “Like” or entering a comment, the information in question will be transmitted directly by your browser to the service provider and saved on its server.

If you do not want the service provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out of the service provider’s account before opening our website. Please note that even if you are not logged in, providers collect anonymized data via social plugins by setting a cookie on your computer. This data may later be assigned to your profile if you later logged in to one of the service providers.

If you are offered a login via a Social Login Service, for example “Facebook Connect”, a data exchange will take place between the provider and our website. In the case of “Facebook Connect”, this may include data from your public Facebook profile. By using such Login Services, you authorize the transfer of data.

For information on the purpose and extent of the collection of your data and its further processing by the service providers, as well as on your rights to privacy and your options for deleting data, please consult the data protection declaration of the service providers concerned:

Facebook Ireland Ltd. resp. Facebook Inc.:
