The Instagram account is an online presence within the Instagram platform offered by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter “Facebook”).
We would like to point out that you are using the Instagram service offered here and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. liking, commenting).
By using Instagram, your personal data is collected, transferred, stored, disclosed and used by Facebook. Facebook processes your voluntarily entered data such as name and user name, e-mail address, telephone number or the contacts in your address book when you upload or synchronise it.
Facebook also evaluates the content you share to determine what topics you are interested in, stores and processes confidential messages you send directly to other users, and may use geolocation data, wireless network information or your IP address to determine your location in order to serve you advertising or other content.
For evaluation purposes, Facebook may use analysis tools such as Instagram Analytics or Google Analytics. The State Ministry has no influence on the use of such tools by Facebook and has not been informed about such potential use.
Finally, Facebook also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created an account. This so-called “log data” may be the IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the website you previously visited and the pages you viewed, your location, your mobile provider, the terminal device you use (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used and cookie information.
You have options of restricting the processing of your data in the general settings of your Instagram account as well as as described under “Privacy settings” in the help section of Instagram (https://help.instagram.com/811572406418223/?helpref=hc_fnav). In addition, on mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers) you can restrict Facebook’s access to contact and calendar data, photos, location data and so on in the settings options there. However, this depends on the operating system used.
