4.      Which data do we process?

We run our Facebook page on the platform provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd. in order to present our company and to communicate with you particularly by using our contact form or the messenger or commenting functions. We will thus collect and process data you provide us with when establishing the contact to us. We also process the visitor statistics compiled by Facebook and made available to us as anonymised data only. To know which data is processed by Facebook, please refer to section VI and Facebook’s privacy information. The link to the latter is also included in section VI.


5.      What do we process your data for (processing purpose) and on what legal basis?

We mainly process your data to answer your inquiries or to respond to your contact request in any other way. The legal basis of processing your data is our legitimate interest to respond to your request pursuant to Art. 6,1 lit. f of the GDPR.

Otherwise, if your contact request aims to enter into a contract, the legal basis is Art. 6,1 lit. b of the GDPR.

We process the anonymous visitor statistics provided by Facebook in order to dynamically adapt our services and offerings to your needs. By anonymising your data, we take appropriate account of your interest in protecting your personal data. The legal basis of this part of processing is Art. 6,1 lit. f of the GDPR.


6.      How long is your data kept for?

Unless a data retention period is explicitly stated at the time of data collection or other statutory retention periods apply as demanded by commercial, tax or other legislation, your personal data is deleted, if it is no longer needed for the purpose justifying data storage. Neither may data be deleted and will be processed for a limited period of time, if it is needed as potential evidence in the context of the statute of limitations.

8.      Which data does Facebook process and for what purpose?

When visiting our Facebook site, Facebook will capture your IP address and various further pieces of information by means of cookies stored on your terminal equipment. Facebook periodically uses this information for market research and advertising purposes. Facebook may also refer to your utilisation pattern to create utilisation profiles, which are again used for advertising purposes.

Facebook will process your data collected in this context and sometimes transfer it to countries outside of the European Union. For details of which data Facebook processes, what for and on what legal basis, please click on the link below to see Facebook’s privacy policy:


To prevent Facebook from creating a user profile, we recommend logging off from Facebook, disabling option “Remember me”, deleting the cookies stored on your terminal equipment and restarting your browser. This way, you may use our Facebook site without disclosing your Facebook ID as needed for creating your user profile. However, this will also prevent you from using interactive site functions like awarding likes, commenting, sharing, sending messages etc. To re-enable such functions, you will have to re-register with Facebook to make Facebook recognise you as one of its users it will create the associated profiles for.


9.      Contact

If you have questions about any of the points above or if you wish to exercise one of your rights hereunder, please contact the responsible body or our data protection officer (see section I. for contact details).
