We use the Facebook Insights function in connection with operation of the Facebook fan page in order to obtain anonymised statistical data about users. Facebook provides information on Insights and the Facebook pages in its data-protection notice.
For this purpose, Facebook places a cookie on the device of the user visiting our Facebook fan page. Each cookie contains a unique identifier code and remains active for a period of two years, except when it is deleted before the end of this period. The user code can be associated with the data of users that are registered with Facebook.
IV. Purposes of processing
The information is processed firstly to enable Facebook to improve the system of advertising that it disseminates by means of its network, among other things. It is secondly intended to enable us, as operator of the Facebook fan page, to receive statistics that are compiled by Facebook based on visits to our Facebook fan page. The purpose is to control marketing of our activities. For example, we are able to acquire information on the profiles of the visitors that follow our Facebook fan page or that use applications contained on the page. This enables us to offer them more relevant content and to develop functions that may reflect their interests to a greater extent.
Moreover, the information collected is also used to compile demographic and geographic analyses that allow us to obtain a better understanding of how we can achieve our objectives with the Facebook fan page to a greater extent. We can use this information to place targeted, interest-based advertisements without requiring direct knowledge of the visitor’s identity. Where visitors use Facebook on several devices, the collection and analysis of data can also be synchronised for all of these devices, provided the visitors are registered and signed into their personal profiles.
The visitor statistics are transferred to us exclusively in an anonymised form. We do not have access to the underlying datasets.
V. Legal grounds and legitimate interest
We operate this Facebook fan page to present ourselves to, and communicate with, the users of Facebook and other interested persons that visit our Facebook fan page. Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer and effective com-munication with customers and interested parties on bal-ancing the interests of those involved.
VI. Transfer of data
It is conceivable that some of the information collected may be processed outside of the European Union by Facebook, which is domiciled in the United States. Facebook Inc. is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and is hence obliged to comply with the European data protection standards.
We do not pass on any personal data ourselves.

In addition, you can prevent the processing of information using the cookie that Facebook places on your device by adjusting your browser settings to disable third-party cookies or Facebook cookies.
VIII. Nature of the shared responsibility
The agreements with Facebook, also in regard to shared responsibility, essentially state that requests for information and the exercise of other rights of data subjects are most sensibly addressed directly to Facebook.

Feel free to contact us at any time if our assistance is required nevertheless.
