Privacy Statement for the Use of Social Plugins
To stay informed about projects, Scharc offers the services of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The website uses so-called “social plugins” from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S.

You recognize the social plugins in the logo of each social network: Facebook = “f” on tile, Twitter = “Twitter bird” and YouTube = “YouTube”.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of social networks. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge: The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please refer to the respective privacy policies of social networks: https://www.facebook.com/; https://www.twitter.com/ and http://www.youtube.com/.
If you are a Facebook, Twitter or YouTube member and do not want these social networks to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored, please log off Facebook, Twitter and Youtube before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“. Please note that it cannot be excluded that the transmission of data over the Internet is accessed by unauthorized third parties.
