Social Plug-In - “Facebook by META”

What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

On our website, we have integrated a social plug-in of the social network “Facebook by META”, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, 2 Dublin, Ireland, e-mail: impressum-support@support.facebook.com, website: http://www.facebook.com/ (“Facebook by META”). When you call up a page that contains such a plug-in, your browser automatically establishes a background connection to the Facebook by META servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook by META directly to your browser and only integrated into our site. Through this integration, Facebook by META receives the information that your browser has loaded a specific page of our website. This also applies if you do not have a Facebook by META profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook by META. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook by META server in Ireland and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook by META, Facebook by META can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook by META profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or posting a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook by META server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook by META profile and displayed to your Facebook by META contacts that you have enabled for this purpose.

​​​​​​​Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (if you have registered with “Facebook by META”) and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR (if you have not registered with Facebook by META). Insofar as processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, the legitimate interest of the page operator is to enable user interaction with the content of the page operator on Facebook by META.

​​​​​​​Purpose of the data processing

The primary purpose of the data collection is to offer you an opportunity for social interaction linked to Facebook by META and thus to make our website interactive. The scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data you leave behind by Facebook by META, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the data protection information of Facebook by META: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy

​​​​​​​Duration of storage

Facebook by META will store the data relevant for the provision of the web service for as long as it is necessary. Insofar as the data is subject to statutory retention obligations, it will be deleted after the retention obligation has expired.

​​​​​​​Objection and deletion options

If you do not want the Facebook by META social plug-in to run, you can also prevent it from running by installing an appropriate add-on or script blocker. If you do not want Facebook by META to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook by META profile, you must log out of Facebook by META before visiting our website. The options for objection and removal are also based on the general regulations on the right of objection and deletion under data protection law described below in this data protection declaration.

Information on the use of cookies

What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

We integrate and use cookies on various pages to enable certain functions of our website and to integrate external web services. The so-called “cookies” are small text files that your browser can store on your access device. These text files contain a characteristic string that uniquely identifies the browser when you return to our website. The process of saving a cookie file is also referred to as “setting a cookie”. Cookies can be set both by the website itself and by external web services. Cookies are set by our website or external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our website, to improve the user experience or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors by pseudonyms, e.g. an individual or random ID, so that we can provide more personalised services. Details are provided in the table below.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as the cookies are processed on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR, this consent is also deemed to be consent within the meaning of Section 25 Para. 1 TTDSG (German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act) for the setting of the cookie on the user’s terminal device. Insofar as another legal basis is mentioned according to the GDPR (e.g. for the fulfilment of a contract or for the fulfilment of legal obligations), the storage or setting takes place on the basis of an exception according to Art. 25 Para. 2 TTDSG. This is the case “if the sole purpose of storing information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the sole purpose of accessing information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is to carry out the transmission of a message via a public telecommunications network” or “if the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the access to information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is absolutely necessary so that the provider of a telemedia service can provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user”. Which legal basis is relevant can be seen from the cookie table listed later in this point.

Purpose of the data processing

The cookies are set by our website or the external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our website, to improve the user-friendliness or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors by pseudonyms, e.g. an individual or random ID, so that we can provide more personalised services. Details are shown in the table below.

Duration of storage

Our cookies are stored in your browser until they are deleted or, if they are session cookies, until the session has expired. Details are listed in the following table.

Objection and removal options

You can set your browser according to your wishes so that the setting of cookies is generally prevented. You can then decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept cookies or accept cookies in principle. Cookies can be used for various purposes, e.g. to recognise that your access device is already connected to our website (permanent cookies) or to save recently viewed offers (session cookies). If you have expressly given us permission to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.

Data security and data protection, communication by e-mail

Your personal data is protected by technical and organisational measures during collection, storage and processing so that it is not accessible to third parties. In the case of unencrypted communication by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security on the transmission path to our IT systems, so that we recommend encrypted communication or the postal service for information requiring a high level of confidentiality.

  • Your data has been collected on the basis of a legal obligation;

  • the data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to restrict processing

According to Art. 18 Para. 1 GDPR, you have the right in individual cases to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

  • the data is no longer needed for the purpose of processing, but the data collected is used for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • an objection to processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR has been lodged and it is still unclear which interests prevail.

Right of revocation

If you have given us express consent to process your personal data (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR), you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.
