This website uses so-called social plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, along with information on rights and setting options, can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker” or the “AdBlock Plus” add-on for Firefox. More info on this at http://t3n.de/news/blockierst-facebook-tracking-345091/.
