16) Information on data processing with respect to the Facebook page

Information on data processing with respect to the Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/laveradeutschland/, www.facebook.com/laveraitaliano/, www.facebook.com/laveraunitedkingdom/, www.facebook.com/laverafrance/

The Facebook page of Lavera serves to enable communication with Lavera fans, end consumers and customers and to highlight news items, products, campaigns and such like.  Please note that in this respect user data may be processed outside the area of the European Union. However, Facebook is subject to the terms of the EU-US Privacy Shield and guarantees compliance with the data protection standards of the EU. (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).The Lavera natural cosmetics Facebook page, including the processing of personal user data, reflects the company’s justified interest in contemporary and supportive opportunities for information and interaction for and with our customers, fans and friends as defined in Art. 6 (1) lit. f. DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation). The processing of data on this Facebook page is subject to an Agreement on the Joint Processing of Personal Data with Facebook.  Processing of Personal Data by Facebook  In its judgement of 5 June 2018, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) decided that the operator of a Facebook page is responsible together with Facebook for the processing of personal user data. Lavera is aware that Facebook processes user data for the following reasons:    Advertising (analysis, compilation of customised adverts),    Preparation of user profiles  Market research. As a rule, the data are processed to satisfy the requirements of market research and advertising. From the usage pattern and the user’s interests thereby traced, it is possible to generate user profiles. The user profiles can then, for example, serve to place advertisements in and outside Facebook that can be assumed to reflect the interests of the user. To this end, cookies are stored on the user computers in which the usage pattern and user interests are saved. Furthermore, irrespective of the user’s hardware, it is also possible to save data in the user profiles (in particular if the user is a Facebook member and is actually logged in).   The following data privacy statement gives information about the data processing carried out by Facebook:  www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ . Facebook also provides options for the user to object to advertisements (so-called opt out). These can be set under the following link:  www.facebook.com/settings. Via the so-called “insights” from the Facebook page, statistical data of various categories can be called up for Lavera. These statistics are generated and provided by Facebook. We, as site operators, have no influence on the generation and display of these statistics. We are not able to deactivate this function or prevent data being generated and processed.   Requests for information and enquiries on the assertion of user rights can be addressed the most effectively to Facebook directly. Only Facebook has access to the user data and can take the necessary measures and provide information.  If you no longer wish your data to be processed in future as described here, then you may cancel your user profile’s link to our page by using the functions “I don’t like this page any more” and/or “Cancel subscription to this page”.  Best of all, just call up the Facebook page for Lavera natural cosmetics - lavera_Naturkosmetik - and make use of the buttons there to confirm.   (https://www.facebook.com/laveradeutschland/)
