7. FURTHER INFORMATION ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER SOCIAL PLUGIN

7.1 The Platform has integrated so-called plugins ("Plugins") for the social media services Facebook and Twitter. These services are supplied by Facebook Inc. and Twitter, Inc. (the "Supplier"). Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter "). You can read a survey of the different Plugins and see how they look on: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins or on: //dev.twitter.com/web/overview.

7.2 If you visit the Website with an integrated Plugin, the browser will establish a direct connection to the Supplier's servers. The Supplier will transfer the content of the Plugin directly to the browser and integrate it on the Website. By integrating the Plugin, the Supplier will receive information on the browser gaining access to the page in question on the Website, even if you have not created a profile at the Supplier or have not logged on. This information (including information on your IP address) is transferred from the browser directly to and stored on one of the Supplier's servers in the US.

7.3 If you are logged on to a social media service, the Supplier may place information about your visit directly on your profile on our Website.

7.5 If you do not want the Supplier to transfer the data collected on the Website to your profile on the social network, please log off the network before you enter the Website. You can also completely avoid that the browser downloads the Plugin with add-ons, e.g. by using the script blocker "NoScript" (http://noscript.net/) if you are using Mozilla-based browsers, such as Firefox or by deselecting the Supplier's solutions (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20169421#).
