This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, then Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed at the following Internet address: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
Whenever you visit a website on our website that has such a plug-in, the plug-in causes the browser you are using to load and display the optical representation of the plug-in from the Facebook server. So your browser builds a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and incorporated by this into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin. We therefore inform you about the information available to us.

The Facebook server will be notified which particular website of our website you are currently visiting. If you are a member of Facebook and are logged into Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook recognizes through the information sent by the plugin which particular website of our website you are currently visiting.
