This website uses functionalities of Facebook's social network. Facebook enables participants in the social network to communicate and interact, to share opinions, experiences and to publish information. The legal basis for data processing is your voluntary consent to participate in a conversation pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
This website uses the so-called "Facebook pixel". The use of this technology enables Facebook to associate visitors of this website with certain groups (for example, visitors to our website are linked to the areas of interest we have registered at Facebook, the so-called "Custom Audiences") in order to recognise them and to display specific advertisements. This technology aims at ensuring that users are shown only interest-oriented ads and to minimise inconvenience by improper advertising. Through the use of the Facebook pixel, Facebook can also track the effectiveness of ads for statistical purposes and track whether and how a user has used an offer after clicking on the advertisement.
For more information about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, please visit https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616. Details on how Facebook processes the data obtained, as well as general information about Facebook advertising, can be found on the Facebook data policy available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update. On your Facebook account under the heading "Settings" you also have the option available to object to the collection of your data via the Facebook pixel and its use for the display of specific advertisements. You can find further information about these settings at https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads (login required).
The use of Facebook Pixel helps to promote products and services in an appropriate manner, without annoying you with inconvenient or inappropriate advertising. The legal basis for the use of the Facebook pixel are therefore the legitimate interests for us, Facebook, and third parties according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
