6. Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") currently from the following social networks: facebook.com ("Facebook") and micro-blogging service twitter.com ("Twitter").
Twitter is a micro-blogging service, provided by Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). When you visit a page on our website that includes such a Plugin, your browser connects directly with the servers at Twitter. The content of the Plugin is transferred from Twitter directly to your browser, which incorporates it into the website. For this reason, we have no influence on the amount of data gathered by Twitter with the aid of this Plugin. We provide this information to the best of our knowledge, which is that only the IP address of your connection and the URL of our website are transmitted when the Plugin is acquired, but are not used for purposes other than display of the content in the Plugin.
