Data privacy statement for Facebook


THE WYE website uses the “Like” button from facebook.com. This service is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The button is marked with the Facebook logo and the words “Like” or “Liked”.

When users visit a web page on our website that contains the button, the browser connects directly with the Facebook servers. Facebook thus receives the information that someone has called the corresponding page of our website. Users are logged in at this moment in parallel with Facebook so Facebook can assign the call to the respective Facebook account – even if the button is not clicked. If the user clicks the “Like” button, the corresponding information from the user’s browser is also transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. Information on the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook, and your settings for the protection of privacy are explained in the privacy policies of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to collect your personal data through our website you must log out of Facebook before you visit our website.
