Our Internet site uses social plugins (“Plugins”) related to the facebook.com social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The Plugins are marked by a Facebook logo or the additional phrase, “Facebook social plugin”. If you call up a website on our Internet domain, which contains one of these Plugins, your browser will establish a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content in the Plugin will be sent by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated in the ALS website. By integrating the Plugins, Facebook obtains the information that you have accessed the relevant page on our Internet site. If you are logged on at Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the Plugins, for example, by activating the “I like” button or leaving a commentary, the relevant information will be transferred directly to Facebook from your browser and stored there. You can obtain the purpose and scope of the data collection process and the ongoing processing and use of the data by Facebook and your rights and options to make settings to protect your private sphere from Facebook’s data protection guidelines. If you do not wish Facebook to gather any data about you via our Internet site, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our Internet site.
