  • Facebook

The website also uses Facebook conversion tracking pixel and Facebook remarketing / retargeting tags of Facebook, Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

The Facebook conversion tracking pixel allows us to track the activities of users after they have been referred to a provider website upon clicking on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to record the efficacy of Facebook advertisements for purposes of statistics and market research. The collected data remains anonymous. This means that we are not able to view the personal data of individual users. However, Facebook stores and further processes the collected data. We are informing you about this issue according to our current information. Facebook can link the data with those of your Facebook account and they use such data for their own advertising purposes according to the Facebook data directives [available at] https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Facebook conversion tracking also enables Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements inside and outside of Facebook. In addition, a cookie is saved on your computer for these purposes.
When you visit our pages, the remarketing tags create a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. Thereby, Facebook receives information that you visited our site with your IP address. Thus, Facebook can attribute the visit at our site to your user account. We can use information thus obtained to display Facebook ads. Please note that, in our capacity of provider of these pages, we gain no knowledge about the content of transmitted data or use thereof by Facebook. For further information about this issue, see the data privacy statement of Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Moreover, plugins of the social network of Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated on our website. You can recognise Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or by the “Like” button on our site. For an overview on the Facebook plugins, please follow this link: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit our sites, a direct link is created between your browser and the Facebook server. Thus, Facebook receives information as to the fact that you visited our page with your IP address. By clicking on the “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account you can link the contents of our page with your Facebook profile. Thereby, Facebook can attribute the visit at our pages to your user account. Please note that, in our capacity of provider of these pages, we gain no knowledge about the content of transmitted data or the manner in which Facebook uses these. For further information about this issue, see the data privacy statement of Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
