4. Visit on our Facebook fan page

We maintain a fan page on Facebook for communication and marketing purposes. This fan page is run as a company page for which Facebook provides a tool called ‘Facebook Insights’, which can be used to analyse fan page user behaviour. For this purpose, Facebook collects data on the various interaction behaviours of our fan page visitors. This happens automatically, regardless of whether you are logged in to Facebook or not. This includes information about the number of page views, the number of ‘likes’ given or information about the reach and success of one of our posts. Facebook uses cookies to be able to create an analysis and to determine whether the fan page visitor is a registered Facebook user. These cookies are stored on the end devices of the respective fan page visitor and help Facebook to identify them when they visit our fan page again. Cookies are used to process personal data.

‘Facebook Insight’ enables us to adapt our marketing presence to the behaviour and wishes of fan page visitors.

Due to the fact that we allow Facebook to set cookies on the end devices of fan page users via our fan page, we are joint controllers within the meaning of Art 26 GDPR together with Facebook Ireland with regard to the processing of personal data via these cookies. The agreement with Facebook in this regard can be found at
