Social networking plugins
Engel & Völkers Menorca uses Facebook, Google +, Pinterest, and Twitter plugins ("plugins") on its website.
The Engel & Völkers Menorca website uses plugins ("plugins") from the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1602 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. ("Facebook"). These plugins are marked with the Facebook logo.
If the customer accesses the Engel & Völkers Menorca page that contains said plugin, the customer's search engine will establish a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. Facebook transmits the contents of the plugin directly to the customer's browser when it is integrated into the website.
The integration of the plugin communicates to Facebook the information the customer accessed on the corresponding page of the Engel & Völkers Menorca website. If the customer logs on to Facebook, Facebook can assign the customer's visit to the customer's Facebook account.
If the customer interacts with the plugins, for example, using the "Like" button or by commenting, the browser transmits the corresponding information directly to Facebook where it is saved. The purpose and scope of obtaining data and additional processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and settings available for customers to protect their privacy can be found in Facebook's privacy policies.
If the customer does not want Facebook to collect data in this way, they must log out of their Facebook account before logging on to the Engel & Völkers Menorca website.
Engel & Völkers Menorca uses plugins operated by the Google+ social network. These programs are for the exclusive use of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. ("Google"). The plugin is clearly visible on our website through the "+1" add-on in white or with a colored background.
By clicking on that plugin, your browser will establish a direct link to the servers operated by Google+. Consequently, the content of the plugin will be transferred to your browser and integrated into the page shown.
The fact that you have visited our website will be communicated to Google. If you visit our website after having logged in to your Google+ user account, Google+ can assign your visit to our website to your user account. The information that comes from interacting with Google+ plugins (by clicking the "+1" button or commenting) will be directly transferred and stored by Google. Engel & Völkers Menorca does not have any power over the data that Google obtains with said plugin.
Our website also uses the plugins of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. (hereinafter "Twitter"). They can be recognized by the Twitter logo, a blue bird on a white background.

By selecting the Tweet button, Twitter establishes a connection to a Twitter server. If you have logged in to Twitter, you can directly "tweet" our link.

Our website also uses the "Pin It" button from the social network "Pinterest" which is operated by Pinterest, Inc., 808 Brannan St., San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. (hereinafter referred to as "Pinterest").
