Privacy Policy Addendum for Facebook Services Usage

Facebook Pixel Use

Our website utilizes the Facebook Pixel, a web analysis service provided by Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). The Facebook Pixel allows us to track the behavior of site visitors after they are redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This facilitates the evaluation of the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help optimize future advertising efforts.

The data collected through the Facebook Pixel is anonymous to us, meaning we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which can link this data to the user’s profile and use it for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. You are entitled to object to this kind of data processing at any time. To do so, you can adjust your ad preferences in the account settings section on Facebook.

Legal Basis

The use of the Facebook Pixel and the related data processing is based on our legitimate interest in analyzing, optimizing, and economically operating our advertising measures and online presence according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Objection and Removal Option

You can object to the collection by the Facebook Pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook Ads. To do so, you can access the pages set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the ad settings: Facebook Ad Preferences. The settings are platform-independent, meaning they apply to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

Please note that these adjustments do not prevent the general transmission of data to Facebook when visiting our website. The complete deactivation of data collection is only possible by not using our site.

Data Protection Consent

Where we ask users for their consent (e.g., as part of a cookie banner), the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. A given consent can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.
