Information on data protection regarding the KnobiVital Facebook page

1. Data controller

When operating this Facebook page, we use the Facebook Insights function to obtain anonymised statistical data regarding the users of our Facebook page. Facebook therefore stores a cookie on the end device of users who visit our Facebook page. The cookie contains a unique user code and is active for a period of two years unless it is deleted before this time. The user code may be linked to the data of users who are registered on Facebook.

As the data controller of this Facebook page, we have concluded agreements with Facebook that regulate, among others, the conditions for the use of the Facebook page. The Facebook Terms of Service and the other conditions and guidelines listed at the end of this information notice essentially apply.

 

2. Use of Facebook Insights and cookies

When operating this Facebook page, we use the Facebook Insights function to obtain anonymised statistical data regarding the users of our Facebook page. Facebook therefore stores a cookie on the end device of users who visit our Facebook page. The cookie contains a unique user code and is active for a period of two years unless it is deleted before this time. The user code may be linked to the data of users who are registered on Facebook.

The information stored in the cookies is received, recorded and processed by Facebook, in particular when visitors use the Facebook services, services provided by other members of the Facebook group of companies and services provided by third-party companies that use Facebook services. In addition, other sites, including Facebook partners and third parties, may use Facebook services cookies to provide services to companies advertising on Facebook. For more information on how Facebook uses cookies is available on the Facebook Cookie policy.

 

3. Purpose of processing

On the one hand, the processing of information enables Facebook to improve the advertising services it distributes on its network. On the other, it should enable KnobiVital, as the operator of the Facebook page, to receive statistics generated by Facebook based on visits to our Facebook page. This enables us to monitor the marketing of our activities. For example, we can use the profiles of visitors who like our Facebook page or use the applications therein to provide more relevant content and to develop functions that could be of more interest to them.

Demographic and geographic evaluations are also generated and, based on the information collected, enable us to gain a better understanding of how we can use our Facebook page to achieve our commercial objectives more effectively. We can use this information to place targeted advertisements based on your interests without directly knowing the visitor's identity. If visitors use Facebook on multiple devices, collection and evaluation may also take place across several devices if they are registered visitors who have signed on using their own profile.

 

The visitor statistics generated are only submitted to us in anonymised form. We have no access to the underlying data.

 

4. Legal basis and legitimate interest

We operate this Facebook page to advertise our company and services and to communicate with Facebook users and other interested parties who visit our Facebook page. The processing of user personal data is based on our legitimate interest to optimise the presentation of our company and products (Article 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR).

  

5. Forwarding of data

It is not inconceivable that some of the information collected may also be processed outside the European Union by Facebook Inc. based in the USA. Facebook Inc. is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and is therefore committed to compliance with European data protection regulations.

 

We ourselves do not disclose personal data.

 

6. Objections

Facebook users can use ad preference settings to influence the extent to which their behaviour may be tracked when visiting our Facebook page. The Facebook settings or the objection form.

The processing of information with the cookies used by Facebook may also be prevented by blocking third-party or Facebook cookies in your browser settings.

 

7. Shared responsibility

In terms of the agreements with Facebook, including shared responsibility, requests for information and the assertion of further rights of the data subject will be much more effective if made directly on Facebook. This is because, as a provider of the social network and with the option to integrate Facebook pages thereon, Facebook alone has direct access to the relevant information and can also take any measures required and provide information immediately. However, please contact us at any time if you require our assistance.
