Using the Facebook "Like" button:
Our website www.k-m.de uses the "Like" button on the facebook.com social network. This special service is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The button is marked with the Facebook logo and the words "Like." If you visit a page on our website containing the button, your browser builds a direct connection to Facebook‘s servers. The information about the button is communicated from Facebook directly to your browser and this is included in the website; Facebook simultaneously receives the information that this page is active. If you are at this moment logged into Facebook, it can assign the visit to your Facebook account—even if you do not click the button. If you press the "Like" button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser and stored on Facebook. For more information on data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as setting options to protect your privacy, please see the data protection policy on facebook.com. If you do not want Facebook to collect personal data about you through our website, you only need to log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
