We use non-personally identifying information to facilitate cross device association.

Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated and may provide other services to our advertisers such as tools, analyses, data and insights to see how their website or mobile applications are used and to further enable the display of targeted advertisements to you, including across your devices. Our advertisers may also provide us with deterministic data about you that may be used to supplement our probabilistic data. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated and may provide other services to our advertisers such as tools, analyses, data and insights to see how their website or mobile applications are used and to further enable cross-device targeting and analysis. In order to restrict our use of certain cross-device data, you may opt out in accordance with this section or the “Your rights” section above.

14. Changes to the policy
15. Facebook & Instagram for data subjects in the EEA and EU and the UK
Data processing through our Facebook and Instagram profile.
We maintain profiles as well as fan pages on Instagram and Facebook.
Through a simple link, you can go from our website to our presences on the social networks Facebook and Instagram. These platforms are provided by Meta Platforms, Menlo Park, California, USA. We maintain these Facebook/Instagram pages in order to inform users or interested parties as well as customers about our services.
We cannot rule out the possibility that, when our company websites are called up on these social networks, third-country transfers may 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.
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 legal basis, identity of the controller and storage period of cookies on user end devices.
Facebook acknowledges shared responsibility for Insights Data with the operators of the Sites and assumes primary responsibility, see: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum
Provided you have a Facebook/Instagram profile and are logged in, Facebook can, for example, analyze your usage behavior and create a usage profile corresponding to your usage behavior. This user data is regularly processed for market research and (personalized) advertising purposes.
The processing of the data is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
If you wish to make requests for information or assert your user rights, it is possible to 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
https://facebook.com/about/privacy and https://instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/
Please note that Facebook Insights as well as the entire Facebook Fanpage is a service of Meta Platforms.
As the provider of the fan page and the Facebook Insights tool, Facebook collects and analyzes personal data required for our statistics and is thus able to establish personal references based on this data. However, we do not know which data is specifically collected by Facebook for the creation of the Insights statistics provided to us anonymously and for which purposes beyond the creation of these page statistics these are processed by Facebook. In addition, we would like to point out that we have no influence on personal data collection and processing carried out by Facebook itself that goes beyond our own, aforementioned statistical purposes and their scope. Facebook may, for example, create usage profiles based on the data collected and processed for us and beyond, and may establish links to your private profile on Facebook or on other platforms. Facebook alone is responsible for this further data collection and processing.
For more information on the use of Facebook Insights, please visit:
