When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram’s servers.

If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the “Instagram” button, this information is also transmitted directly to a server of Instagram and stored there. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram, as well as your related rights and privacy settings, are described in Instagram’s Privacy Notice:
If you do not want Instagram to associate the data collected through our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
