Visitor tracking pixel from Facebook

With your consent, which you have given by clicking the "Accept" button, we use the visitor tracking pixel of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94394, USA ("Facebook") within our website. This allows you to track the behavior of users after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This process is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and may help optimize future advertising efforts.

The data collected is anonymous for us and does not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of the users. However, Facebook stores and processes the data so that it can be linked to the user profile and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You may allow Facebook and its affiliates to place ads on and outside of Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.

Permission to use the visitor action pixel may only be granted by users older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your legal guardian for permission.

6. Social Plug-ins

Facebook

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook. com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile or a "thumb up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

When a user accesses a website that contains such a plugin, his or her browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plugin is sent directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to his level of knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the Like button or posting a comment, the relevant information is sent directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility for Facebook to find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only one anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and settings for the protection of users' privacy, can be found in the data protection notices of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect information about him or her about this offer and associate it with his or her Facebook membership data, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".

We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we are not aware of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Twitter.
