The plugins can represent interaction elements or content (eg videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile, the terms "Like", "Like" or a "thumbs up" sign ) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here. The plugins are only activated when you click the corresponding button. If these are greyed out, the plugins are inactive. You have the option to activate the plugins once or permanently. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law. When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers on. The content of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user's device, which integrates it into the online offer. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the users according to our level of knowledge. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook's data protection information.
Data processing is based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR)
The Facebook Social Plugins show us the interests of the visitors in order to display them more specifically on our website, in order to only present users with posts that potentially correspond to their interests.
According to its own information, Facebook stores the date and time of your visit for 90 days, the specific Internet address on which the social plug-in is located, and other technical data such as the IP address, browser type, operating system, and the services of Facebook further optimize. After the 90 days have passed, the data will be anonymized so that it can no longer be linked to you.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his cookies. Further settings and contradictions regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings or via the US page or the EU page. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
