Data processing for statistical purposes using site insights

Facebook provides so-called site insights for our Facebook fan page:https://www.facebook.com/business/a/page/page-insights. This is aggregated data that provides information about how people interact with our site.

Site insights can be based on personal data that is recorded in connection with a visit or interaction of people on or with our website and in connection with the content provided. Please take note of which personal data you share with us on Facebook. Your data can be used for market research and advertising purposes, even when you are not logged into Facebook or do not have a Facebook account.

For example user profiles are created from the usage behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. This data acquisition takes place using cookies which are saved on the end users device. Furthermore, data that is independent of the devices used by the users can also be stored in the user profiles; especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them. The legal basis for processing is art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimized presentation of our offer, effective information and communication with customers and interested parties as well as in the targeted placement of advertisements. Please note that we have no influence on the data collection and further processing by Facebook. As a result, we cannot provide any information about the extent, location and duration of the Facebook data stored. Furthermore, we cannot make any statements about the extent to which Facebook complies with existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links with the data are made by Facebook and to whom the data is passed on by Facebook. If you want to avoid the processing of your personal data by Facebook, please contact us in another way.
