6. Privacy notice regarding our presence on Facebook

The company uses the technical platform and the services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. Our presence on Facebook facilitates a better, active communication with our customers and prospective customers. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.

According to a ruling of the ECJ on 5th June 2018, the operator of a Facebook page shall be jointly responsible with Facebook for the processing of personal data.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook shall collect your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information shall be used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook page, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information about this under the following link: We have no influence on the generation and presentation of the information.

The information collected about you in this context shall be processed by Facebook Ltd. and, if applicable, transferred to countries outside the European Union. In its data use policy, Facebook describes, in a general way, which information Facebook receives and how this is used. There, you will also find information about ways of getting in touch with Facebook and about the options for ad settings. The data use policy is available under the following link:  .

You can find Facebook’s full data policy here:

How Facebook uses the data from your visit to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, for how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not specified clearly and conclusively by Facebook and is not known to us.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device shall be transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address shall be anonymised (in the case of “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook shall also store information about its user’s devices (e.g. within the framework of the “log-in notification” function). If applicable, Facebook shall thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged into Facebook as a user, there is a cookie on your device with your Facebook identification. As a result, Facebook is able to see that you have visited this page and to track how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons integrated into webpages, Facebook is able to record your visits to these pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. Contents or advertising tailored to you may be offered on the basis of this data.

If you would like to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function “remain logged in”, delete the cookies that are available on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information which allows you to be directly identified will be deleted. Thus, you can use the Facebook pages without your Facebook identification being revealed. If you access interactive functions of the page (like, comment, share, message etc.), a Facebook log-in window will appear. After you have logged in, you are again identifiable to Facebook as a specific user.

You can find information on how to manage or delete existing information on the following Facebook support pages:

Facebook has the primary responsibility for the processing of insights data and for the protection of the rights of the data subjects pursuant to Art. 15 ff. GDPR. In the case of requests for information or other questions relating to your rights, such as the right to the erasure of data, please contact Facebook directly, as it is only Facebook that has full access to your user data. If we receive such requests directly, we shall forward them to Facebook.

Furthermore, we collect and process no data from your use of the company’s own Facebook page.

We maintain a profile in the social network Instagram in order to communicate with the registered users and to inform them about our products, services and news.

When you visit our profile on Instagram, your data shall be processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in a varied external image of our company, the use of an effective opportunity to provide information, and communication with you. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. If you have given the provider of the social network your consent to the processing of your personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. We have no influence on the processing of personal data by the respective social media provider.

When you visit our profiles, the social media provider shall generally store cookies in your browser, in which your user behaviour or your interests shall be stored for market research and advertising purposes. You can find detailed information on the data processing when you use our social media profile and on your rights in the data privacy statements of the social media providers:
