8. Facebook

We maintain an online presence in the social network "Facebook" to draw your attention to our services, inform you about our events and get in touch with you.
The website uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered here.
Please note that you use this Facebook page and its functions at your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). 
When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook records your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more information on this at the following link:
The data collected about you in this context will be processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information Facebook receives and how this information is used in its data use guidelines. There you will also find information about how to contact Facebook and about the settings for advertisements. The Data Use Guidelines are available at the following link:
The complete Facebook data guidelines can be found here:
In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.
When accessing a Facebook Page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to information from Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); if necessary, Facebook is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie containing your Facebook ID is stored on your device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into websites allow Facebook to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.
If you want to avoid this, you should log off from Facebook or deactivate the "Stay logged in" function, delete the cookies on your device, close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can be used to identify you immediately. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identification. When you access interactive features of the site (Like, Comment, Share, Messages, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, you will again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user.
For information on how to manage or delete existing information about you, please visit the following Facebook support pages:

9.  Automated decision making

We do not use automated decision-making procedures (profiling) in accordance with Article 22 DSGVO. If we intend to use such procedures, we will inform you of this at this point.

10. Amendments to the privacy policy

We reserve the right to modify our privacy practices and this policy to reflect changes in relevant laws or regulations, as appropriate, or to better meet your needs. Any changes to our privacy practices will be posted here accordingly.
