The plugins are independent extensions of the social network providers. We, therefore, have no influence on the extent of the data collected by the social network providers using the plugins.

The company has no control over, and is not responsible for, the privacy policies and practices of third parties.

If you do not want the providers of social networks to receive data and possibly save or use them, you should not use the respective plugins on our Site.
