Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the Facebook company. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place on the internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows users of the social network, among other things, the creation of private profiles, to upload photos, and it provides networking via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a depiction of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. An overview of all the Facebook plug-ins may be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
. In the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
With every visit to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, Facebook detects which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject, if the data subject is logged in on Facebook at the same time. This information is collected via the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, Facebook associates this information with the personal Facebook account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Whenever the data subject is logged in on Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook receives information that the data subject has visited our website via the Facebook component. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If a transmission of this information to Facebook is undesired by the data subject, they may prevent it by logging off from their Facebook account before visiting our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/
, provides information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained what configuration options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. Different applications that allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook are also available. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate data transmissions to Facebook.
