Scholz & Friends takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and handle it in accordance with data privacy regulations as well as this Data Privacy Notice.
In general, our website can be used without the provision of personal data. Insofar as personal data is recorded by our web pages (e.g. name, address or email address), this occurs, as far as it is possible, exclusively on a voluntary basis. We do not transfer this data to third parties without your explicit consent.
It should be noted that the transfer of information via the internet (e.g. during communication via email) may contain security gaps. Comprehensive protection of data from third-party access is not possible.
Our pages have plug-ins incorporated from the social media network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA.

An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found under the following link: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our pages, the plug-in creates a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thus receives the information that you as recorded by your IP address have visited our web page. By clicking the Facebook “Like” button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link content from our pages to your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to attribute your visit to our web page to your user account.

This protocol data may include your IP address, the address of the websites you visited that also have Pinterest functionality, the type and settings of your browser, the date and time of your request, your usage of Pinterest and cookies.
For further information on the purpose, scope and further processing and usage of the data by Pinterest as well as your rights and possibilities for protecting your privacy, please consult Pinterest’s data privacy notice at https://about.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy.
