The Facebook page is an online presence within the Facebook platform offered by Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter "Facebook").
Thus, Facebook is the data controller for the processing of personal data on the Facebook platform as described below.
We would like to point out that you use these Facebook pages and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
Facebook collects the personal data of visitors to the Facebook page and processes it in accordance with Facebook's data policy. This includes, in particular, interactions with the Facebook page, such as calling up posts, images, sharing them, clicking the "Like" button, as well as information about the user's device (hereinafter "visitor data"). For more information about the Visitor Data processed, please refer to Facebook's Page Insights Data information.
The Visitor Data may be used to display content or advertisements to visitors of the Facebook Page according to their interest in certain posts on the Facebook Page or their interactions with its content, such as clicking on the "Like" button.
In an agreement between the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg and Facebook, it is stipulated that Facebook is primarily responsible for data processing and that the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg has no access to the individual data of visitors. Furthermore, Facebook undertakes to observe the rights of data subjects and to respond, for example, to requests for information, objections or deletion.
The State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg therefore asks visitors to the Facebook page to contact Facebook directly in order to assert their data subject rights with regard to the processing of their data by Facebook. For the aforementioned reasons, the Ministry of State Baden-Württemberg could, for example, only forward requests for information to Facebook. In addition, the Ministry of State Baden-Württemberg complies with its obligations to the data subjects in accordance with the information on data subject rights in the data protection declaration.
Furthermore, the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg points out that according to the agreement with Facebook, the Irish Data Protection Commission is the lead authority for the supervision of processing under joint responsibility. Visitors to the Facebook page have the right to submit a complaint to the Irish Data Protection Commission in addition to the local supervisory authority responsible for them.
