Facebook, Instagram and other social media
Our website includes buttons to promote (“like”) or share (“tweet”) web pages on social networks such as Facebook and Instagram. These buttons work using pieces of code that come from Facebook or other social media channels themselves. Cookies are placed through this code. We have no influence on that. Read the privacy statement of Facebook, which can change regularly and other social media channels to read what they do with your (personal) data that they process via these cookies.
The information they collect is anonymised as much as possible. The information is transferred to and by Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn and stored on servers in the United States. LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+ state that they adhere to the Privacy Shield principles and are affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
