The in­for­ma­ti­on ge­ne­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of the web­site will usual­ly be trans­mit­ted to and stored by Goog­le on a ser­ver in the United Sta­tes. If IP an­ony­mi­sa­ti­on is en­ab­led on this web­site, ho­we­ver, your IP ad­dress will be shor­ten­ed by Goog­le wi­thin Eu­ro­pean Uni­on Mem­ber Sta­tes or in other Sta­tes par­ty to the Agree­ment on the Eu­ro­pean Eco­no­mic Area. On­ly in ex­cep­tio­nal ca­ses will your full IP ad­dress be sent to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and shor­ten­ed the­re. Goog­le will use this in­for­ma­ti­on on be­half of the ope­ra­tor of the web­site to eva­lua­te your use of the web­site, com­pi­le re­ports on web­site ac­ti­vi­ty and pro­vi­de other ser­vices re­la­ted to web­site usa­ge and in­ter­net usa­ge for the web­site ope­ra­tor.

When you vi­sit any of our web­sites that con­tain one of the­se plug-ins, your brow­ser es­tab­lishes a di­rect con­nec­tion to the Face­book ser­ver, which al­lows the plug-in con­tent to be sent to your brow­ser and in turn al­lows the brow­ser to in­te­gra­te the plug-in con­tent in­to the web pa­ge. This tells Face­book that you have vi­si­ted our web­site. If you are log­ged in­to your per­so­nal Face­book ac­count while you vi­sit our web­site, Face­book will be ab­le to as­so­cia­te the vi­sit wi­th your ac­count. In­ter­ac­ting wi­th plug-ins, e.g. by cli­cking on the “Li­ke” but­ton or by ma­king a com­ment, trans­mits the cor­re­spon­ding in­for­ma­ti­on di­rect­ly to Face­book, whe­re it is stored. If you wish to pre­vent this da­ta trans­fer, you must log out of your Face­book ac­count be­fo­re vi­si­ting our web­site.
