Over and above this, we use Facebook and Instagram data to evaluate and improve the reach of our corporate communications.

Communications via Facebook are potentially insecure. You can also use other means to contact us at any time.
Use of “Facebook Insights”
We use Facebook “Facebook Insights” functions on our Facebook and Instagram pages to obtain anonymised statistical data relating to use of, and visitors to, our Facebook and Instagram pages. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in publicity work and communications as per Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR and, in particular, optimisation of our Facebook and Instagram presences. We use “Facebook Insights” to obtain information relating to use of our Facebook and Instagram pages, in particular anonymised information relating to visitor profiles, including demographic and geographic evaluations. If you use Facebook or Instagram on more than one end device (e.g. via the browser and the app), Facebook Ltd. Will also compile these usage statistics across the multiple devices.
Data processing within the scope of “Facebook Insights” is carried out by Facebook on the basis of the agreement on joint responsibilities referred to in Item 1 above. All data provided to us by Facebook is anonymised. For more information on Facebook data processing within the scope of “Facebook Insights” visit:
