Settings options and access to statistical data

Facebook allows us to adjust the following settings on our fan page and gives us access to the following data:

  • We can select the target group for which our Facebook fan page and our individual posts published on our fan page are intended. The settings are adjusted based on general parameters (e.g. age group, language, region, interests), which makes it possible to address specific groups with our contents. It is not possible to address or identify individual persons based on the adjustments of the settings Facebook allows us to make.
  • Facebook grants us access to statistical analyses that provide information on the use of our fan page. The analyses to which we have access are not suited to individually analyze the browsing habits of selected persons. We merely have access to aggregated data (such as the number of visits, number of likes, number of followers, region of origin, age group, gender) that provide information on our clientele and the use of our fan page. For more information on the statistics provided by Facebook please visit https://www.facebook.com/business/a/page/page-insights.

We cannot influence Facebook's data processing in any other ways. We process these data in order to publish contents on our fan page addressing the appropriate target group and to better understand and optimize the use of our fan page.
