A Facebook plug-in has been installed on its website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences and allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the US or Canada, those responsible for the processing of his/her personal data are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
If a Facebook component (i.e. Facebook plug-in) has been installed on the controller’s website, then each time one of the website’s pages is visited, the data subject’s Internet browser will automatically trigger, via the Facebook plug-in, a representation of said plug-in to download. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US . As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific subpages of our website the data subject visits.
If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook recognizes which specific subpages of our website the data subject visits. This recognition occurs every time he/she visits our website and during the entire duration of his/her stay on our website. This information is collected via the Facebook plug-in and assigned by Facebook to the data subject’s Facebook account. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the ‘Like’ button, or if the data subject leaves a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the data subject’s personal Facebook account and saves this personal data.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook when accessing our website, Facebook will always be notified via the Facebook plug-in that the data subject has visited our website; this happens regardless whether the person clicks on the Facebook plug-in or not. If the data subject does not wish for this information to be transferred to Facebook, he/she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his/her Facebook account before visiting our website.
Facebook’s data policy, which is available at https://www.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which options Facebook offers to protect the data subject’s privacy. In addition, there are various applications available to suppress data transmission to Facebook. The data subject is free to make use of such applications to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
The controller of this website has installed Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics involves the collection, analysis and evaluation of data about the behaviour of website visitors. Web analytics services collect data on topics such as the website via which a data subject has come to a website (so-called ‘referrer’), which subpages of the website a data subject accesses, and how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analytics are primarily used to optimize a website and provide a cost-benefit analysis for online advertising purposes.
The operating company of Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics feature is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports showing activity on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s browser. For more information about what cookies are, please see above. Via this cookie, Google is able to analyse how our website is used. If Google Analytics has been installed on the controller’s website, then each time one of the website’s pages is visited, the data subject’s Internet browser will be automatically triggered by Google Analytics to submit data to Google for online analytics purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of certain personal data, such as the data subject’s IP address. This allows Google to, among other things, track the visitor’s origin and clicks, subsequently enabling commission settlements.
The cookie stores personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Upon each visit to our website, personal information, including the data subject’s IP address, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.
As explained above, the data subject can prevent the placement of cookies through our website at any time by installing a relevant setting on his/her Internet browser, thereby permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. Such a setting would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
