Data processing by Facebook and Instagram

We maintain profiles and fan pages on Instagram and Facebook.

Through a simple link, you can reach our presences on the social networks Facebook and Instagram from our website. These platforms are provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. We maintain these Facebook/Instagram pages in order to inform users or interested parties, as well as customers, about our services.

We cannot exclude the possibility that, when our company website is accessed on these social networks, third-country transfers take place, e.g. to servers located in the USA. Furthermore, we would like to point out that as the operator of a Facebook/Instagram fan page, we are jointly responsible with Facebook for processing the personal data of visitors to the page (Art. 26 GDPR). For this purpose, we have concluded corresponding contracts with Facebook. Due to data processing in the USA, we have concluded corresponding standard contractual clauses with this company. You can access the standard contractual clauses at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/help/566994660333381/?helpref=search&query=Standardvertragsklauseln%20&search_session_id=fc9845e203c7c994b8c270b7678d9bd3&sr=0.

As an operator, we do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and any other information resulting from Art. 13 GDPR, including the legal basis, identity of the data controller and storage period of cookies on user terminals.

Facebook acknowledges joint responsibility for the Insights data with the operators of the pages and assumes primary responsibility, see:

Provided you have a Facebook/Instagram profile and are logged in, Facebook can, for example, analyse your usage behaviour and create a usage profile corresponding to your usage behaviour. This user data is regularly processed for market research and (personalised) advertising purposes.

The processing of the data is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 Letter a GDPR.

If you wish to request information or assert your user rights, you can assert these rights against us or Facebook. Further information regarding the collection and use of data, as well as your rights and protection options, can be found at

Please note that Facebook Insights and the entire Facebook fan page is a service of Facebook Inc.

As the provider of the fan page and the Facebook Insights tool, Facebook collects and evaluates personal data required for our statistics and is, therefore, able to establish a personal connection on the basis of this data. However, we do not know which specific data is being collected by Facebook for the creation of the Insights statistics that are anonymously provided to us, or for which purposes beyond the creation of these site statistics it is processed by Facebook. In addition to this, we would like to point out that we have no influence whatsoever on Facebook’s personal data collection and processing beyond our own statistical purposes and their scope. For example, Facebook can create usage profiles based on the data collected and processed for us and beyond, and if necessary, create links to your private profile on Facebook or other platforms. Facebook alone is responsible for the additional collection and processing of this data.
