9. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook The controller has integrated components of the company Facebook
on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook allows users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the person responsible for the processing of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

We operate Facebook fan pages on Facebook. In this context, we receive statistical data from Facebook in different categories such as the total number of page views, page activities, post interactions, video views, post reach, comments, shared content, responses, origin-related information on geographical areas such as city and country, language, views and clicks in the shop as well as proportions of men and women, clicks on route plan as well as clicks on telephone numbers and number of likes me-information. This data is automatically collected by Facebook and made available to us. We use this data to make our Facebook fan pages, including the content of the pages there, more attractive and to publish targeted advertising at the right time. The legal basis for the use of statistical data is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Due to the operation of our Facebook fan pages, there is a joint responsibility between the platform operator Facebook Ireland Ltd. in accordance with Article 26 GDPR. For more information on the privacy policy, please visit the following link to Facebook's privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

Due to the collection of statistical data by Facebook, Facebook has undertaken, in its internal relationship with us as a fan page operator, to assume liability for the admissibility of the collection of statistical data under data protection law and the fulfillment of the rights of data subjects in connection with the statistical data. The same applies to ensuring the security of the relevant data. You can find more information on this and on the fulfillment of the rights of data subjects on the Facebook page with the relevant information on the statistical data on "Page Insights Data" here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum. Here you can also take note of the relevant contents of the agreement between Facebook and us as the site operator via the so-called "Page Controler Addendum", which is to be seen as a contract pursuant to Article 26 GDPR between Facebook and us as the fan page operator as joint controller.

If you have any questions about your rights to information, correction, deletion, data portability and the right to object, please contact Facebook directly. If the requests are made to us, we will forward them. In this context, we would like to point out that despite the treatment as joint controller according to Article 26 GDPR, we as fan site operators have no possibility of influencing the collection and data processing of statistical data. The corresponding sole responsibility lies with Facebook Ireland Ltd.

10. Legal basis for processing Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing
purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

11. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued
by the controller or a third party If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

12. Duration for which the personal data will be
stored The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

13. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data;
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

14. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
