- General notes on social media plug-ins
Our website https://www.mecomvision.de includes browser plug-ins and links from social networks (e.g. Facebook, Youtube, Linkedin and XING). These social networks are operated exclusively by third party providers, some of whom are based outside the EU. Third parties may not provide you with an adequate level of privacy protection. These browser plug-ins and links are identified in our Internet presence by logos or other references.
Our website integrates the plug-in of the social network “facebook.com”, operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo and the “Like” button. When you visit a website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to the Facebook server. Facebook then transmits the content of the plugin to your browser, which in turn integrates the plugin into the website. In this way, Facebook receives information that a user with a specific IP address, namely the IP address assigned to your Internet access at the time of transmission, has visited the corresponding website. If you are logged into your Facebook account at the same time, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account even if you do not click the “Like” button. If you use the plugin by clicking on the “Like” button, your browser will also send it to Facebook and save it there. If you do not want Facebook to collect information through our website and associate it with your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting our website. For more information about the purpose and scope of Facebook’s collection, storage and use of this information, as well as your rights in this regard and the possible settings of your Facebook account to protect your privacy, please see the Facebook Privacy Statement https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
On our website we also use the Facebook pixel from Facebook, a social media network of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
The code implemented on this page can evaluate the behaviour of visitors who have come to this website from a Facebook advertisement. This can be used to improve Facebook advertisements and this information is collected and stored by Facebook. The data collected cannot be viewed by us but can only be used for advertising purposes. Cookies are also set through the use of the Facebook pixel code.
By using the Facebook pixel, the visit to this website is communicated to Facebook so that visitors can see suitable ads on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account and are signed in, your visit to this website will be associated with your Facebook user account.

- e) Vimeo
Our website includes plugins of the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Each time you access a page that offers one or more Vimeo video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server in the USA. Information about your visit and your IP address is stored there. Through interactions with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button) this information is also transmitted to Vimeo and stored there.
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect information about you and link it to your Vimeo member information through this Web site, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting this Web site.
In addition, Vimeo calls the Google Analytics tracker via an iFrame in which the video is called. This is our own tracking of Vimeo, which we do not have access to. You can prevent Google Analytics from tracking you by using the opt-out tools that Google provides for some Internet browsers. Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by Google Analytics and related to their use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: <font color=#38B0DE>-=https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=- Proudly Presents
