3. collection of personal data and type and purpose of use

a) During a purely informative visit to our social media fanpages, the social media operators collect personal data, so-called insights data, which includes the IP address. This data is stored anonymously in cookies on your terminal device. The social media platform operators use this data to provide the owner of a social media fan page with statistically processed information about the visit and use of his fan page. As the operator of the fan page, we do not receive any personal data, i.e. we cannot assign the statistical information to any identified persons. The processing of this processed data is in our legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.


b) Furthermore, Facebook evaluates whether you as a page visitor have a Facebook profile and links the information of your Fanpage visit with your Facebook user profile. A cookie with your Facebook ID is then placed on your end device. By associating the information about your page visits with your user profile, Facebook is able to display and offer advertising con-tent tailored specifically to you. The data collected can only be assigned to persons identified by Facebook. You can avoid this procedure by logging out of Facebook with your user profile before visiting our fan page, deactivating the “stay logged in” function on your Facebook profile and deleting all cookies on your device.


c) Information on how Facebook processes Insight data and the use of cookies can be found here:
The following link will provide you with information on how to manage and delete information already held by Facebook: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#
For more information about how Facebook processes your personal data, click the following link:


d) We would also like to point out at this point that it is generally not known for what purposes, to what extent and for how long the collected data is stored within the Meta Group and wheth-er the data is passed on to third parties, as Meta does not disclose this information conclusively.


e) Via the fan pages of the social media platforms, it is also possible to contact us via the message function, the like buttons and the comment function, whereby your user name is displayed on the respective social media platform. The use of your interactive data is in our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO to communicate with you on the Fanpage and to get in touch.


f) The Fanpage operator stores your personal data as long as there is a legitimate interest in the processing and a corresponding legal obligation to store. Subsequently, the data will be anonymized or deleted.

4. competitions

The Fanpage operator regularly organizes competitions via its Facebook page. Personal data collected via this channel is processed by the fan page operator only for the purpose of determining the winner and communicating with the winner. In this case, the legal basis for the data processing is the overriding legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO, as the processing of the required information is a mandatory prerequisite for participation in the contest. After the end of the competition, the personal data collected in this context will be deleted immediately, taking into account any relevant retention obligations.

5. data subject rights

You have the following rights against us regarding the personal data concerning you:
– Right to information about the personal data we process, Art. 15 DSGVO. The right to in-formation extends to the purposes of data processing, the categories of personal data concerned, the categories of recipients to whom your data is disclosed, the storage period or criteria that measure the storage period, the origin of your data, in the event that it was not collected by us, as well as the existence of the rights to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection, right of complaint.
– Right to rectification of incorrect or incomplete personal data stored, Art. 16 DSGVO.
– Right to erasure of your personal data stored by us, Art. 17 DSGVO.
– Right to restriction of the processing of personal data, Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure, furthermore if we no longer need the data for the specific purpose, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO.
– Right to data portability, Art. 20 DSGVO. According to this, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.
– Right of appeal to a supervisory authority, Art. 77 DSGVO. For this purpose, you can con-tact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace.
– Right to object, Art. 21 DSGVO. According to this, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data by us, insofar as it takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest or is necessary for the performance of a public task.

6. disclosure of personal data

a) We may be subject to a legal or statutory obligation to provide the lawfully processed personal data to third parties, in particular public bodies, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

b) We do not plan to transfer your data to countries outside the EU and the EEA (third coun-tries). However, it cannot be ruled out that personal data collected via US platforms will be forwarded and processed within the Meta Group and Google, whose headquarters are in the United States (USA). Your personal data may therefore be processed outside the European Union. We would like to point out at this point that there is no level of data protection in the USA comparable to that in the EU. The Meta Group and Google do not yet disclose the exact scope and nature of the data processing, so that it cannot be ruled out that your personal data collected when visiting a social media platform is not processed in accordance with the Euro-pean data protection regulations of the GDPR. We have no influence on this, as Meta Plat-forms Ireland and Google themselves determine the purposes and means of the data pro-cessing carried out by them. For further information in this regard, we therefore refer you to the privacy statements of the respective social media platforms, which we have linked to individually above.
