We have no influence on the collection and further use of these data since it is done exclusively by Facebook. You can find details about the information that is collected in Facebook's privacy policy, which can be viewed under

(4) Data collection when you visit our corporate page

The moment you go on to our corporate page, your browser establishes a connection with Facebook and transmits information.

These data are collected if you are not logged in or registered on Facebook:

  • IP address
  • Cookies: If you call up our corporate page, cookies are automatically placed by Facebook. The so-called datr cookie helps Facebook according to its own information to identify the web browser which is establishing the connection with the Facebook page and is used to protect the social network. The datr cookie has a validity of two years, but can be deleted via the browser settings.

These data are collected if you are a member of Facebook and are currently logged in:

  • IP address
  • Cookies: A datr cookie is also placed in this case (see above). If you are a member of Facebook and are logged in with your Facebook profile when you visit the corporate page, the c-user cookie is also activated. Facebook links the visit to the "fan page" with your personal user account. As a result, Facebook is able to track your user behaviour.

(5) Purpose of processing

The processing of personal data takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest in effective information and communication and the interest to improve our marketing (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). If you are requested by Facebook to consent to data processing, i.e. to declare your agreement e.g. by checking a checkbox or clicking a button, the legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) (a), Article 7 GDPR. For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opportunities to object (opt out), we refer to the information linked hereinafter.
