Facebook Social Plugins
S&S offers you the possibility of posting products, offers, servies and/or events using Facebook. For this purpose S&S uses a service by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be seen here. While the WebMagazin.de website is being loaded in your browser, the code of the Social Plugin is being called from a Facebook Server and embedded in the WebMagazin.de site. We therefore have no influence over the data called by Facebook. According to Facebook, Facebook saves the internet address at which the Social Plugin is found for a duration of 90 days, as well as additional technical data such as IP address, browser type and operating system to optimise Facebook’s services. After the duration of 90 days the data is anonymised so that is can no longer be associated with you. You can find additional information via Facebook here.
If you are logged in to Facebook during your visit to WebMagazin.de, Facebook can attribute the visited sites to you. The information created via interaction with the Social Plugin (clicking etc.) is sent to Facebook and saved by them. You can prevent this by logging out of Facebook before visiting our site. It is also possible to block all Social Plugins by Facebook. For this purpose, there is a number of extensions available for various browsers (such as Facebook Blocker).
S&S offers you the possibility of posting products, offers, servies and/or events using Twitter. For this purpose we use a service by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107 and the relevant plugin. With the Tweet button, it is possible for you to post our content on Twitter. The button shows the number of Tweets a piece of content has received. While the WebMagazin.de website is being loaded in your browser, the code of the Tweet button is being called from a Twitter Inc. Server and embedded in the WebMagazin site. We therefore have no influence over the data called by Twitter. According to Twitter, Twitter saves the sent Tweet message and its metadata. According to our estimates, this includes date, time and a shortened URL of the website the tweet button was embedded on, as well as further technical data such as IP address, browser type and operating system. Twitter Inc. does not confirm for how long this information is saved. You can find more information via Twitter here. Please also refer to this source, as Twitter may change or update its functions.
