Data Protection Information about the Facebook Social Network
Data Protection Information about the Facebook Social Network
Facebook is a social network
A social network is a place for social sharing on the Internet, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space.
A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or allow the online community to provide personal or business-related information.

With each call made to one of the individual pages on our website, in which a component of Facebook (Facebook plugins) has been integrated, the web browser in the user’s IT system is automatically prompted to download the corresponding Facebook component through Facebook itself.
An overview of all Facebook plugins can be visited at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook collects information about which specific page of our website was visited by the user.
If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook detects every connection the user makes to our website – and for the entire duration of the user’s visit to our website – as well as which specific pages were visited by the person in question. These pieces of information are collected through Facebook’s tools and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject.

Data Protection Information on the Application and Use of Google Analytics (with Anonymization Function)
On our website, we have integrated the Google Analytics component (with the anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the process of collecting and analyzing data about the behavior of website visitors.
A web analytics service collects and correlates data about the website from which a user arrived (the so-called referrer), which subpages were visited or how often, and how long a subpage was viewed.
Web analytics is primarily used for website optimization and to perform a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For residents in Europe, the data controller is Google’s Irish subsidiary, located in Dublin, Ireland, at Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland.
For web analytics through Google Analytics, the data controller uses the application ‘_gat._anonymizeIp’. Through this application, the user’s Internet connection IP address is abbreviated and anonymized by Google when accessing the website from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze website traffic.
Google uses the data and information collected, among other things, to evaluate the use of the Improxy website and to provide online reports that show activities on the website and to provide other services related to website usage on the internet.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. The definition of cookies is explained above.
With the cookie configuration, Google is enabled to analyze the usage of the entity’s website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically send data via of the Google Analytics tool for the purposes of online advertising and the settlement of commissions for Google.
During the course of this technical procedure, the company Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the user’s IP address, which serves Google, among other things, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently create commission agreements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which the access was made and the frequency of visits to the website by the user. With each visit to the website, this personal data, including the IP address used by the user, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America.
Google may pass this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The user can, as already mentioned, prevent the setting of cookies on the website, at any time, by means of a corresponding adjustment in the web browser they use and, thus, permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used will also prevent Google Analytics from installing a cookie on the user’s information technology system. Furthermore, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection methods of Google may be found at https://www.google.com/intl/pt-BR/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/ terms/us.html. Google Analytics is explained in the following link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, processing is authorized on the basis of Article 6(1)b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data is necessary, such as to comply with tax obligations, processing based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other person. This action and respective treatment would be based on art. 6 (1) lit. of the GDPR.
Finally, data processing operations may be based on Article 6(1) of the GDPR Code. This legal basis is used for processing operations not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases, if the processing is necessary for the legitimate purposes pursued by the entity or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the entity. data subject who require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
Legitimate interests in the company and third parties
Based on article 6, no. 1, of the GDPR, the legitimate interest is to carry out current and future business in favor of the well-being of all its employees and shareholders.
Personal data storage period
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is not necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Provision of personal data as a mandatory or contractual requireme
Necessary requirement to conclude a contract;
Obligation of the data subject to provide personal data;
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual clauses (e.g. information about the contractual partner). Sometimes, to finalize a contract, it may be necessary for the user to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by our company.
The user (or our client) is, for example, obliged to provide personal data when our company signs a contract with them.
Failure to provide personal data will result in the contract not being concluded Before personal data is provided by the user, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or whether it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of failure to provide data to carry out the task. contract.
Automatic decision makers
As a responsible entity, we do not use automatic decision makers or automatic profiling.
