Facebook social plugins
This site uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable 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 appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user invokes a feature of this website that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated into the online service from there. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online service. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins by, for example, pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If the user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Austria.
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 and delete his cookies before using our online offer. Other settings and objections regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, ie. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Use of Facebook pixels
Within our website, the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is owned by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd. , 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland is operated (“Facebook”), is used. With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to designate the visitors of our website as a target group for the presentation of advertisements, so-called “Facebook Ads”. Accordingly, we use Facebook pixel to display our Facebook ads only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website. This means that, with the help of the Facebook pixel, it will be ensured that our Facebook ads will meet the potential interest of the users and not be annoying. Furthermore, with the help of Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of our Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were redirected to our site after clicking on a Facebook ad.
The Facebook pixel is integrated directly through Facebook when calling our website and can store a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook in the logged-in state, the visit of our website is noted in your profile. The data collected about you are anonymous to us, therefore they do not give us any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible. The processing of the data by Facebook is part of Facebook’s data usage policy. Accordingly, you will learn more about how the remarketing pixel works and more generally about how Facebook ads are displayed in Facebook’s Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
You may object to the capture by the Facebook Pixel and use of your data to display Facebook Ads. To do this, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or the contradiction on the US-American site http: // www. aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Integration of services and contents of third party plugins
It may happen that contents or services of third-party providers, such as maps or fonts from other websites, are included in our online offer. The inclusion of content from third-party providers always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to the users’ browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Furthermore, providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process users’ data for their own purposes. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as much as possible in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner and will select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security. The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers as well as their contents, as well as links to their privacy statements, which further notes on the processing of data and, currently. already mentioned here, opt-out options include:
In principle, you have the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and opposition. To receive information about your personal data or have it deleted, please contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in a way, address your complaint to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
