6. Social Media Plug-ins

We use social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook on our website on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO in order to make Wilhelm Fricke better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers.

a) Facebook

Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to make their use more personal. For this we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button or the so-called Facebook pixel. This is an offer from Facebook.

If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin or pixel, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. As a rule, a cookie is set for this purpose with which interest data is collected using pseudonyms. This information is used to display interest-related advertisements about our offers on the websites of our partners. No directly personal data will be stored and no user profiles will be merged with personal data on you.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages (also referred to as “retargeting”). Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles for this purpose, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) of Facebook.

b) Youtube

To integrate videos we use the provider YouTube (belongs to Google). Like most of these websites, YouTube uses cookies to collect information about visitors to its website. YouTube uses this information to collect video statistics, prevent fraud and improve usability, among other things. This also leads to a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.

When you start the video, it may trigger further data processing. We have no influence on that. For more information about privacy at YouTube, please see their privacy policy:
