SECURITY ADVICE

We aim to save your personal data in such a way that it cannot be accessed by third parties by taking all technical and organizational measures necessary.

TRANSFERRING DATA DURING ONLINE ORDERS

We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary for settlement of the contract, for example to the financial institution commissioned to handle payments.

USE OF FACEBOOK PLUGINS

Plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA have been integrated on our website. The Facebook plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo or the ‘Like button’ on the pages. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

When you visit our website the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook is thus informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the Facebook ‘Like button’ whilst you are logged into your Facebook account you can link the contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign any visit to our website to your user account. We would like to point out that as the provider of the website, we do not know the content of the data that is transmitted to Facebook and how this is used. Further information can be found in the Facebook data privacy statement at http://facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not want to allow Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your user account you should log out of your Facebook user account beforehand.
