We are active in social networks in order to communicate with interested parties and active Visitors and to inform them about our products, events and news. We mainly process the following types of data: Visitor Data and Analytics Data.
2.1 Visitor Data
We have access to your name, your public profile picture and all other public information on your Facebook profile. In practice, this is the information that is visible to others, too. You may also give additional personal data to us by commenting or by Facebook messenger.
Your Visitor Data is being used, for instance:
- To provide you services
- For customer communication and marketing
- Social media campaigns and competitions
- For quality improvement and trend analysis
- To buy advertisements from Facebook and measure their efficiency.
We will not transfer the personal data to other services than those of Facebook without a separate consent.
2.2 Analytics Data
When you access our Facebook page, your browser transmits certain technical data to the web server for which Facebook is responsible. Facebook also uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your device via your browser. Cookies set by Facebook are intended, among other things, to enable Compensate, as the operator of the Facebook page, to obtain statistics for the purpose of controlling the marketing of our activities, which Facebook compiles on the basis of visits to this page.
2.2.1 Facebook Page Insights
Compensate may use the Facebook Page Insights function, which Facebook makes available to us free of charge as an indispensable part of the user relationship, to obtain anonymous statistical data regarding visitors to our Facebook page. This data is collected using cookies set by Facebook, which each contain a unique user code and that are stored by Facebook on the visitor's device. The user code that can be linked to the login information of those Visitors that are registered on Facebook is collected and processed when they visit the Facebook Page.
3. How we use Analytics Data
We use the analytics data we collect for quality improvement and trend analysis and for customer communication and marketing.
In particular, Compensate may receive demographic information provided by Facebook about its target audience - and thus the processing of that information - including trends in age, gender, relationship status and professional situation, information about the lifestyle and interests of its target audience, and information about the purchases and online purchasing behaviour of visitors to its site, the categories of goods or services that interest them most, and geographic information that informs it of where to conduct special promotions or organize events and generally enables it to target its information offering as effectively as possible.
Although the Visitor statistics compiled by Facebook are transmitted exclusively in anonymous form to Compensate as the operator of the Facebook page, the compilation of these statistics is based on the previous survey - using cookies set by Facebook on the Visitor's device - and the processing of the personal data of these visitors for these statistical purposes. More information about Facebook Page Insights can be found
