4.2 Facebook-Pixel und Targeting (Custom Audiences):
With the help of FacebookPixel (or comparable functions / applications to send event data and or contact information by means of interfaces within apps), it is possible for Facebook to determine who is part of a given target group and thus display suitable advertisements (“Facebook Ads”). This enables us to use FacebookPixel in order to display FacebookAds to users on Facebook and within the services of partners cooperating with Facebook (“Audience Network” https://www.facebook.com/audiencenetwork/ ) who have also shown an interest in our (online) product range, or who have shown certain characteristics (e.g. interest in specific topics or products which become evident through the visited websites) which we then transmit to Facebook (“Custom Audiences”).
With the help of the FacebookPixel, we also wish to ensure that our Facebook Ads correlate with the potential interest of users and do not have an harassing effect. FacebookPixel also enables us to track the effectiveness of the statistical and market research purposes by showing us wether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad (“conversion measurement”).
Facebook Ireland Ltd. and we are jointly responsible for the collection or receipt of “event data” that Facebook collects or receives (but not the further processing there of) during the course of a transmission. This is achieved by means of FacebookPixel and or comparable functions (e.g. interfaces) that are executed within our website for the following purposes: a) Displaying advertisements containing information that matches users’ presumed interests; b) Sending commercial and transactional messages (e.g. targeting users via Facebook Messenger); c) Improving advertisement delivery and personalising features and content (e.g. improving how we identify which content or advertising information presumably matches users’ interests).
We have entered into an agreement with Facebook (“Responsible Party Addendum”, https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum), which particularly regulates the security measures Facebook has agreed to fulfil (i.e. users can, for example, provide information or make deletion requests directly to Facebook). Note: When Facebook provides us with metrics, analytics, and reports (which are aggregated, i.e. do not contain information about individual users who are anonymous to us), this processing is not carried out with shared responsibility, but is covered by an information processing agreement (“Data Processing Terms“, https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/ dataprocessing): “Data Security Terms and Conditions” (https://www.facebook.com/legal/ terms/data_security_terms) and, with regard to processing in the USA, on the basis of standard contractual clauses (“Facebook EU Data Transfer Addendum, https:// www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum) . The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and complaint to the competent supervisory authority), are not restricted by the agreements with Facebook:
- Types of Data Processed: Usage (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times); meta/communication (e.g. device information, IP addresses); location (information as to geographical position of a device or a person); and event data (Facebook) (“event data” is data that can be transmitted, e.g. via FacebookPixel (via apps or in other ways), by us to Facebook and relates to persons or their actions; this data includes, for example, information as to visits to websites, interactions with content, functions, installations of apps, purchases of products, etc.; event data is processed in order to create target groups for content and advertising (Custom Audiences); event data does not include the actual content (such as comments written), neither login information nor contact information (i.e. names, e-mail addresses or phone numbers). Event data is deleted by Facebook after a maximum of two years, the target groups formed from them with the deletion of our Facebook account).
- Persons affected: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services); interested parties.
- Security measures: IP masking (pseudonymisation of the IP address).
- Legal basis: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR), Legitimate interests Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR)
- Objection options (opt-out): We refer to the data protection terms of the respective providers and the objection options (“opt-out”) of these providers. If no explicit optout option has been specified, the option of refusing cookies in your browser settings is an alternative. However, this may restrict the functionality of our website. We therefore recommend the following additional opt-out options, a summary for the respective areas are given below: • a) Europe: https://www.youronlinechoices.eu. • b) Canada: https://www.youradchoices.ca/choices • c) USA: https://www.aboutads.info/choices • d) Inter-territorial: https://optout.aboutads.info.

4.3 Plugins and embedded Functions including Content
Our website integrates functional and content elements. These are obtained from the servers of the respective providers (here after referred to as “third-party providers”). These can be, for example, graphics, videos or social media buttons and posts (here after uniformly referred to as “content”). This integration always requires that third-party providers process the user’s IP address, since, without the IP address, it would not be possible to send any content to a specific browser.
The IP address is therefore required in order to display afore mentioned functions and or content. We strive only to use such content, as to allow the respective provider only to use the IP address in order to deliver the necessary content. Third-party providers may also use pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. These “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic to the website.
The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device. These may contain, among other things, technical information as to the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit, and other information on the use of our website; as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

Your personal data is encrypted before it is transmitted. This applies not only to your orders but also to customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete data protection against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in compliance with Art. 32 GDPR, which we continually update so as to be technically state of the art.
Further, we cannot guarantee that our website presence will be available at all times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.
8. Disclosure of data to third parties, no data will be transferred to non-EU / EEA countries
As a general rule, we only use your personal data within our company. If and when we involve third parties to support our contract fulfilment (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive such personal data as is necessary for these services to be fulfilled.
In the event that we outsource segments of data processing (“commissioned processing”), we contractually oblige the commissioned third party to only use personal data in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject. A data transfer to entities or persons outside the EU / EEA other than the case mentioned in this statement in point 4 does not take place and is not planned.
