We use the “Facebook pixel” on our website. The provider is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for processing the personal data of persons in the EU.
Facebook has joined the EU/US Privacy Shield Agreement, thereby committing itself to complying with European data protection standards and thus has fulfilled the EU requirements for legitimizing the transfer of personal data to the USA. Information on Facebook’s commitment can be found here.
The use of this technology enables Facebook to assign visitors to our website to specific groups (for example, visitors to our website according to the areas of interest we have sent to Facebook – the “custom audiences”) for the display of specific advertisements and to thus be able to recognize these groups. This ensures that these users are only shown advertisements that match their interests and that inconveniences caused by inappropriate advertising are avoided. By using the Facebook pixel, we can also monitor the effectiveness of our Facebook advertisements for statistical purposes and track whether and how a user has used our services after clicking on an advertisement.
Additional information about the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found here. Detailed information on how Facebook processes the data it collects and general information about Facebook advertisements can be found in Facebook’s data protection declaration. In your Facebook, account under the heading “Settings,” you can object to the collection of your data via the Facebook pixel and its use for displaying specific advertisements. Information on these settings can be found here (login necessary).
The use of the Facebook Pixel helps us to appropriately advertise our products and services without inconveniencing the recipients of this advertising with inappropriate advertising. The legal basis for the use of the Facebook pixel is our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties in these purposes, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
