Social plug-ins – Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The SWIZA website uses social plug-ins from Facebook, Twitter or other social Internet platforms. These plug-ins are identified with the logo of the corresponding social media platform (hereinafter "Platform").

If you visit a SWIZA website which contains such a plug-in, your browser shall automatically establish a direct connection with the computers of the corresponding Platforms. Contents of plug-ins are thus transmitted from the Platform directly to your browser. The transmitted contents are then integrated directly onto the Internet site, whereby the Platform contains the information that you have visited that site. If you are logged into the Platform, the Platform can allocate your visit to our website directly to your profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the "Like" button, commenting on a post or communicating with other users, this information will be transmitted from your browser directly to the Platform and stored there.

If you do not want the Platform to collect data from you, log out of the Platform before you visit the SWIZA website. The Platform also collects anonymized data over the social plug-ins when users are logged out and deposits a cookie in your browser. This data can be assigned to your profile if you log in to the Platform at a later point in time.

If a log-in is carried out over a social log-in service such as Facebook Connect, data will be exchanged between the Platform and the SWIZA website. With Facebook Connect, for example, this can be data from your public Facebook profile. You automatically agree to data transmission with the use of such log-in services. Further information and detailed conditions regarding log-in services may be found on the websites of the respective Platform.

 

You may configure your browser software to prevent the installation of cookies. In this case it may be that not all functions of the SWIZA website can be used to their full scope.
