XI: Addendum to the Vitrulan Group’s Facebook fan pages (date: 2018-10-12)
1. General information
The Vitrulan Group uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereafter referred to as Facebook) to host this information service.
Please note that you are solely responsible for how you use these Facebook pages and their features. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. comment, share, like). Alternatively, you can find the information provided on these pages on our websites at www.vitrulan.com and www.systexx.com.
2. How Facebook processes your personal data (“Insights pages”)
When you visit our Facebook pages, Facebook collects your IP address and other information stored in cookies on your PC. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about how the Facebook pages are used. Facebook provides more information about this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
3. Disclosure/transfer of your personal data to insecure third countries
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and, where applicable, transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes the information it receives and how it uses it in general terms in its data policy. This policy also contains information about how to contact Facebook and preferences for advertising content. Facebook’s data policy can be found at this link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy
Facebook’s full data use policy can be found at this link: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy
4. Use, transfer and storage of your personal data by Facebook
How Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on a Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from visits to a Facebook page is shared with third parties has not been conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is therefore not known to us. When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (in the case of "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information on its users' devices (e.g. as part of the "Login Notification" feature); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged into Facebook as a user, there will be a cookie with your Facebook ID on your device. This enables Facebook to track your visit to this page and how you used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. Content or advertising can be tailored to you based on this data.
If you do not want this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "Stay signed in" feature, delete the cookies on your device and close and reopen your browser. This will delete Facebook information that could identify you directly. This allows you to use our Facebook pages without disclosing your Facebook ID. If you access interactive features on the pages (like, comment, share, news etc.), a Facebook login mask appears. If you choose to log in again, you can once again be identified by Facebook as a specific user.
6. Managing and deleting your personal information on Facebook
