Facebook, custom audiences and Facebook marketing services
Within our online offer, due to our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated 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 Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, is used.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement (https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome ) and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, on the one hand, Facebook is able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). It is thus a tracking procedure that enables the identification of users via websites. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences").
With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads match the potential interest of the users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").
The Facebook pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when you call up our websites and can store a so-called cookie on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, the visit to our online offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you (surname, first name, email account) is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook as well as for our own market research and advertising purposes. If we transmit data to Facebook for comparison purposes, this data is encrypted locally in the browserand only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely for the purpose of comparison with the data that is also encrypted by Facebook. Furthermore, when using the Facebook pixel, we use the additional function "extended matching", in which data for the formation of target groups ("Custom Audiences" or "Look Alike Audiences") is transmitted to Facebook in encrypted form.
The aforementioned data processing by us is justified in each case in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter f) DS-GVO, as we have a legitimate interest in displaying personalised advertising to you and evaluating the use of our website in the context of advertising or marketing measures using the services of third parties.
The processing of data by Facebook is carried out within the framework of the Facebook Data Use Policy (https://www.facebook.com/policy.php). Specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and its functionality can be found in the help section (www.facebook.com/business/help/742478679120153) of Facebook.
You may object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To control what types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can go to the Facebook-established page (www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/) and follow the instructions on usage-based advertising settings. The settings are platform-independent (desktop or mobile). If you do not want social networks to associate the data collected through our website directly with your profile, you must log out of the relevant social networks before visiting our website.
