Our website may contain functions provided by social networks to provide our users with up-to-date information and easy-to-use communication. Our implementation of the following third-party social networking functions may require the transfer of data to those third parties.
Our website may contain components of Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States) that are integrated into our site as plug-ins. For an explanation of plug-in functions such as “Like” and “Share”, refer to Facebook’s website. When visiting a website with Facebook plug-in, the plug-in sends a request to Facebook’s servers in the United States and transmits your IP address as the address that visited the website containing the plug-in. If you are registered with and logged in to Facebook, these plug-ins may link your Facebook account to our website. To avoid your visit to a given website being linked with your Facebook account, you must ensure that you are not logged into Facebook while you visit that website. We have no knowledge of the data you transmit to Facebook or Facebook’s use of that data. For more information, refer to Facebook’s Data Use Policy.
We may statistically analyse visits to our websites using AWStats. AWStats may be used to analyse the data described above. This data is not consolidated with data from other sources. IP addresses will be deleted following completion of each analysis.
