Data Protection Provisions for the Use of Facebook
The controller has integrated components from Facebook, Inc. into this Web site. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place and online community run on the Internet that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual setting. A social network can be used as a platform to exchange opinions and experiences or it enables the online community to provide personal or commercial information. Facebook enables the social network’s users to do things such as create private profiles, upload photos, and network with each other through friend requests.
The company operating Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. The entity controlling the processing of data, if the data subject is not resident in the United States or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Every time an individual page is visited on this Web site, the latter being operated by the controller and featuring an integrated Facebook component (Facebook plug-in), the relevant Facebook component automatically causes the Web browser on the data subject’s information technology system to download a rendering of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. You can see an overview of all Facebook plug-ins at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. This technological process involves Facebook receiving knowledge of the particular sub-site on our Web site that the data subject is visiting.
Every time the data subject visits our Web site and for the entire length of time he or she spends on our Web site, Facebook will identify the specific sub-site on our Web site that the data subject visits if he or she is simultaneously logged in to Facebook. This information is collected by the Facebook component and matched with the data subject’s Facebook account by Facebook. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our Web site, for example the “Like” button, or if the data subject leaves a comment, Facebook will match this information with the data subject’s personal Facebook account and store this personal data.
The Facebook component always informs Facebook of the data subject visiting our Web site if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Facebook at the time of visiting our Web site, irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in the described manner, he or she can prevent it being transferred by logging out of his or her Facebook account before visiting our Web site.
The Data Policy published by Facebook, available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about Facebook’s collection, processing, and usage of personal data. Furthermore, it explains the settings that Facebook offers to protect the privacy of data subjects. Additionally, there are various applications available that make it possible to stop data from being transferred to Facebook. Data subjects can use these applications to prevent data from being transferred to Facebook.

This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited Web sites in the world.
Our Web site features a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), which causes the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding rendering of the component from LinkedIn every time our Web site is visited. You can find more information about the LinkedIn plug-ins at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. This technological process involves LinkedIn receiving knowledge of the particular sub-site on our Web site that the data subject is visiting.
Every time the data subject visits our Web site and for the entire length of time he or she spends on our Web site, LinkedIn will identify the specific sub-site on our Web site that the data subject is visiting if he or she is simultaneously logged in to LinkedIn. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and matched with the data subject’s LinkedIn account by LinkedIn. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated into our Web site, LinkedIn will match this information with the data subject’s personal LinkedIn account and store this personal data.
The LinkedIn component always informs LinkedIn of the data subject visiting our Web site if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to LinkedIn at the time of visiting our Web site, irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to LinkedIn in the described manner, he or she can prevent it being transferred by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before visiting our Web site.
