Use of Facebook social plugins.
One of the features of the BMW AG Internet presence on the domains www.bmw-sports.com, www.bmw-motorsport.com, www.bmw-golfsport.com and www.bmw-yachtsport.com is that it uses what are called social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). These plugins are indicated by a Facebook logo.

When you access the BMW AG Internet presence on the domains www.bmw-sports.com, www.bmw-motorsport.com, www.bmw-golfsport.com and www.bmw-yachtsport.com, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.

Integration of the plugin causes Facebook to receive the information that you have accessed on the corresponding page of the BMW AG Internet presence. If you are logged in with Facebook, it will be able to assign your visit to your Facebook account. Please note that an exchange of this information already takes place when you visit our Internet presence on the domain www.bmw.com, regardless of whether you interact with the plugin or not. If you interact with the plugins, such as by pressing the “Like” button, the corresponding information is sent directly to Facebook by your browser and saved there. You can find information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how the data is processed further and used by Facebook, together with your rights and optional settings to protect your private sphere, in the Facebook data protection notes (http://www.facebook.com/policy.php).

 

If you do not want Facebook to gather data about you via our Internet presence, you must log out of Facebook before visiting the BMW AG Internet presence on the domains www.bmw-sports.com, www.bmw-motorsport.com, www.bmw-golfsport.com and www.bmw-yachtsport.com.
