Schreiner Group uses so-called social media plug-ins on this website. Most plug-ins are passive and do not transmit data from you to third parties until after you have clicked the respective button. On the other hand, some plug-ins are active and transmit data to third parties automatically as soon as you access this website.
When a social media plug-in is active, either because you have activated it or because it is activated on this website by default, your IP address and the currently visited page of the Schreiner Group website is forwarded to the social media platform. If you are simultaneously logged in on the respective social media platform, this information is associated with your social network account. In addition, if you click a link for sharing content, the corresponding content is shared on your social network account and linked to your social network account.
If you do not agree to this transfer of data, please log out of your social media platforms before visiting the Schreiner Group website with integrated social media plug-ins.
The following active social media plug-ins are integrated on the Schreiner Group website:
- Plug-ins of the Facebook social network from Facebook, Inc. 1601 Willow Road Menlo Park, CA 94025. These plug-ins can be recognized by the Facebook logo (a white “f” with a blue background).
