  1. Collection and storage of personal data, as well as the type and purpose and use thereof:

a) Data collected by Facebook / Instagram:

If you are a Facebook user, Facebook collects the information described in the Facebook Data Policy under “What types of information do we collect?”. If you are not a Facebook user, cookies with identifiers, small text files, may still be stored in your browser, which enable so-called tracking of your user behavior.

As a rule, user data when visiting Facebook is also processed by Facebook for market research and advertising purposes. Based on user behavior (including when visiting our Fanpage), complex user profiles are created that Facebook can use to play personalized ads to the visitor within and outside of Facebook. You can also find more information about this in the Facebook Data Policy.

If you do not agree to this, you can object here (opt-out).

b) Data used by us (“Page Insights”) and legal basis:

Facebook provides us with statistics and usage data that we can use to analyze the use of our fan page (so-called “page insights”). This enables us to continuously improve our offer on Facebook. We, as the operator, do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and any other information resulting from Art. 13 GDPR, such as storage duration of cookies on user terminals. The primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights Data rests with Facebook and Facebook complies with all obligations under the GDPR with respect to the processing of Insights Data.

We as the site administrator have no other way, not even via user tracking, to evaluate user behavior on our fan page. It is also generally not possible for us to identify the visitor to the Fanpage on the basis of the page insights. In particular, we have no right under the Agreement to require Facebook to disclose individual visitor data. Identification is only possible for us if we are able to assign individual profile pictures to “like-my” entries for the page; however, this is only possible insofar as our fan page has been marked with “like-my” by the corresponding visitor and the “like-my” entries are set to “public”.

You can find out what information Facebook uses to create Page Insights here.

The operation of the Faceboook fan page and the use of page insights serve our legitimate interest in effective external presentation and efficient communication with our customers and interested parties. This interest justifies the operation of the page both against the legitimate interests of Facebook users, as well as against visitors to our fan page who do not have a Facebook account. Accordingly, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

  1. Disclosure of data to third parties:

Data collected by Facebook is shared and processed throughout the Facebook group. The Facebook Group includes, for example. also Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus. For example, information collected via Facebook is used to display personalized advertising to the user on Instagram, or information from WhatsApp is used to take action on Facebook against accounts that send spam via WhatsApp. This information can be found in the Facebook Data Policy under “How do Facebook companies work together?”.

When data is processed by Facebook, user data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), in particular the USA. Facebook has therefore submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield:

  1. Right to object:

If your personal data is collected on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which will be implemented by us without specifying a particular situation. If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to

  1. Data subject rights:

You have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. In addition, you have the right to information under Article 15 of the GDPR, the right to rectification under Article 16 of the GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 of the GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 of the GDPR, and the right to data portability under Article 21 of the GDPR. Furthermore, there is a right of appeal to a competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO).

In principle, you can assert your data subject rights against Facebook as well as against us. Since only Facebook has direct access to your user data, you can most effectively assert your data subject rights against Facebook.

If you have any questions about this data protection notice, you can contact us or our data protection officer at any time.
