Facebook Inc, the U.S. parent company of Facebook Ireland Ltd, is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, providing a commitment to adhere to European data protection guidelines. More information on Facebook’s Privacy Shield status can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacyshield.

The transfer and further processing of users’ personal data to third countries, such as the USA, as well as the associated possible risks for users cannot be ruled out by us as the operator of the site.

The processing of your personal data by us is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in being able to track user behaviour on our Facebook fan page. This consists of the effective information of our users, customers and interested parties and the communication with these persons. The processed statistics enable us in particular to record and evaluate the reach and effectiveness of our website, our marketing measures, reports, postings and our other activities. This enables us to analyse, optimise and economically operate our website and our services on an ongoing basis. We process the data for this purpose.

 

  1. Data processing on a Facebook fanpage
  2. .

Facebook may process the following data in particular:

  • User interaction (click behaviour, posts, likes, viewing of videos, page views, etc.)
  • Cookies
  • Demographic characteristics (age, gender, state, etc.)
  • IP address
  • System and device information (e.g. browser type, operating system etc.)

How your data is processed when you visit our Facebook fan page depends on whether or not you have a Facebook account. If you have a Facebook account, Facebook can permanently assign the data to your account in order to learn more about you in this way.

Even if you do not have a Facebook account, Facebook may store your data. This can be done through the use of cookies. Cookies are mostly small text files that are stored on your respective device. Various information is written to this text file, which can be read out again at a later time. This allows Facebook to store and process information about you, even without you having a Facebook account. You can find more detailed information about Facebook’s cookies at https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/.

Facebook only provides us with anonymised statistics about the use of our fan page as part of the Insights usage. We can only see from the statistics how many users have carried out certain interactions. In contrast, we cannot see which user has carried out a particular action. We cannot draw any conclusions about a person by means of the statistics of the Insights data.

  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18f. GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
