Data Privacy Notice concerning the Use of Facebook / Google+ / Twitter Social Plugins

EGO uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social networks facebook.com ("Facebook"), plus.google.com ("Google+") and twitter.com ("Twitter“).

These plugins are labeled with the Facebook icon, the Google+ icon or the Twitter icon, respectively.

Facebook

If you visit a site in EGO which has such a plugin, your browser will create a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugins will be transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website by your browser. By integrating the plugin, Facebook will receive the information that you have visited the corresponding sites in EGO. If you are logged in at Facebook, Facebook can attribute your visit to your Facebook account.

If you do not wish to allow Facebook to gather data about you through EGO, you will have to log out of Facebook prior to visiting our website.

Facebook / Google+ / Twitter

If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you activate the "Like" button or enter a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook / Google+ / Twitter and saved there.

Please see the privacy notices of Facebook / Google+ / Twitter to learn more about the purpose and scope of the data being collected and the further processing and use of this data by Facebook / Google+ / Twitter as well as about your rights and possibilities for adjusting the settings to protect your privacy.
