Use of social media plugins

The website uses the following social media plugin:

„Facebook-I-Like“ or „Facebook-Gefällt-mir“, operated by: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States

This social media plugin is software developed and provided by the aforementioned social media service that allows the automated data exchange between the website and the social media service. This way, data from the aforementioned social media service can be transmitted to the website dynamically, among other uses.

At the same time, data collected from the users of this website can be transmitted to the social media service, including among others the IP address. You can recognise the use of such social media plugins through the specifically marked buttons. Personal data may already be exchanged with the social media service upon viewing or rather loading the website. In these cases, users have the option to refuse this data exchange potentially by changing the settings in their account on the website of the aforementioned social media service.

You can recognise the use of the Facebook plugin on the website through the Facebook symbol (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” symbol) on a corresponding button. By clicking this button you consent to using the plugin and thus the transfer of personal data to the aforementioned social media service. We have no influence over the type and extent of the data transferred and their further processing. According to our current state of knowledge, the aforementioned social media service is informed about your IP address and the website using the plugin through this process. If you are logged into the aforementioned social media service platform at the time the information can be attributed to your user profile immediately. If you want to prevent such collection of profile information you should log out of the aforementioned social media service platform.

FACEBOOK PIXEL, CUSTOM AUDIENCES AND FACEBOOK CONVERSION

Within our online offer we use the so-called “Facebook Pixel” by the social network Facebook according to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimisation and profitable operation of our online services. Facebook is run by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you live in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland (“Facebook”).

Facebook is certified according to the Privacy Shield Framework and thus guarantees to comply with European data protection laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

Through the Facebook Pixel Facebook can identify visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of adverts (so-called “Facebook Ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel to show the Facebook Ads we booked to those Facebook users that also showed interest in our online offer or exhibit certain traits (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are identified based on the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). By using the Facebook Pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads match the potential interest of the user and do not appear pestering. Through the Facebook Pixel we can also monitor the impact of the Facebook adverts for statistical and market research purposes as we can see whether users are sent to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

The data processing by Facebook is handled in accordance with Facebook’s data handling policy. You can find general information on the display of Facebook Ads in Facebook’s data handling policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Specific information and details on the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook’s help area: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
You can object to the collection of your data via the Facebook Pixel and the use of the data thus collected for the display of Facebook ads. To adjust your settings for which kinds of ads you can be shown within Facebook you can visit the site set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on settings for use-based advertising there: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are applied independent of platform i.e. they are adopted for all devices, like desktop computers or mobile devices.

 

Facebook Lead Ads

We process all data you submit to us voluntarily via a Facebook Lead Ad (e.g. email address or additional user information) only according to this privacy statement and for the purposes of contacting you and on the legal basis described in paragraph 2 b) of this privacy statement. Furthermore, Facebook uses the data from Lead Ads on its own authority according to its privacy policy in order to, for example, pre-fill instant forms before they are opened by the user. Facebook does not use data from the questions set by heycar in the Lead Ad and does not transfer your data to third parties without your consent.
