We only collect data for personalised processing and use if you voluntarily opt to enter the data or give your express consent. By doing so you accept the following conditions of use.
When you visit our website, certain data is automatically saved for the purpose for system administration and for statistical or back-up purposes. The details are as follows: the name of your internet service provider, possibly your IP address, the version of your browser software, the operating system of the computer used, the website from which you visit us, our websites visited by you and possibly the search terms you have used to find our website. This data may potentially allow conclusions to be drawn as to a certain visitor to the website. Personalised data is not utilised in this connection, however. The use of the above data is purely anonymous. If Eichenauer passes on data to external service providers, technical and organisational measures are taken to ensure that this is carried out in compliance with statutory provisions relating to data privacy.
If you provide us with personal data of your own accord, we will not use, process or share this data beyond the extent permitted by law or stipulated by you in the form of a declaration of consent.

You are of course entitled at any time to withdraw a signed declaration of consent agreeing to the use and processing of personal data; the withdrawal then takes effect for the future. For this purpose it is sufficient to send an e-mail to our Data Privacy Officer Mr. Hans Joachim Dionisius. hjdionisius@arcor.de or call +49 163-9781678

8. Use of Facebook plug-ins
Our network makes use of plug-ins belonging to the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). This particularly involves the Facebook “Like” button.
If you visit a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your internet browser establishes a direct link with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is relayed by Facebook directly to your browser, and it is integrated by the latter in the web page.

Integration of the plug-in means that Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the relevant page of our website. If you are logged into your Facebook user account while you visit our website, Facebook can attribute your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example if you activate the “Like” button or post a comment, the relevant information is relayed by your browser directly to Facebook and it is saved there.
Please refer to the Facebook privacy policy for details of the purpose and extent of the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as information regarding your rights and settings options in this regard with a view to protecting your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to attribute your Eichenauer website visit to your Facebook user account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
