Social media (facebook)
The person responsible for processing has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with one another and to interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences, or it enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Among other things, Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Facebook Component causes a representation of the corresponding Facebook component to be downloaded from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned by Facebook. If the person concerned activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the person's personal Facebook user account and saves this personal data.
Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before calling up our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be found at https://de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, different applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook, for example the Facebook blocker from the provider Webgraph, which can be obtained from http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
