When you click on the Facebook logo, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers.

A detailed overview of the Facebook plug-ins is available at the following link: http://developers.face-book.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our website, a direct connection is established between the Facebook server and your browser via the plug-in. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If the "Like-Button" is clicked while you are logged in to your Facebook account, it is possible that you can link the con-tents of our website on your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your user account.
