Supplement for my Facebook Business Page

Jointly responsible for the Fanpage are Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland; hereinafter Meta Platforms Ireland) and me.

Current information about my company is posted on the fan page and can be commented on and/or liked by users. Users can also post so-called visitor contributions on my Facebook page. The comments, likes and posts are publicly visible and therefore it is also publicly recognisable by whom they were left. Users can also send messages to me which are not publicly visible.

Via the so-called Insights I have the possibility to retrieve certain statistical and anonymised data on user behaviour ( This includes, for example, the total number of page views, "Like" votes, page activities, post interactions, reach, video views and post reach. Data on the Facebook groups linked to my Facebook page is also provided in this way.

The Insights data is generated and provided by Facebook using cookies. I can only change the time period for which I want to view the analysis. In addition I can define certain settings for the target group of my posts which have a corresponding effect on the statistics. I cannot turn off the Insights function. Facebook uses the data in particular for advertising purposes (creation of personalised advertising), creation of user profiles and market research purposes. If the visitor to the business page has a Facebook user account and is logged in with this account - when accessing the page - the information provided by the cookies is stored across all devices. Without being able to influence this by me, Facebook passes on data to, among others, Meta Platforms, Inc. - the US parent company of Meta Platforms Ireland. This is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield and is thus considered to be data protection compliant in the sense of the GDPR. Details on data processing by Facebook can be found here:

I use the Insights data as well as the other visible data to optimise my offer on my Facebook page and to interact with users. For example: I use the information on visiting times to optimise the timing of my posts. Information about the type of end devices used helps me to design my posts etc. in such a way that they are optimally displayed on all types of end devices. On the basis of Facebook terms of use, which each user has agreed to as part of setting up their Facebook profile, I can identify subscribers and fans of the site and view their profiles and other information shared by them.

The legal basis for the data processing is the legitimate interest according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The measurement of visitor behaviour serves the optimised presentation and alignment of my online offer on Facebook as well as effective communication with you.

The data processing is carried out on the basis of an agreement between the joint controllers pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR; Meta Platforms Ireland is the primary controller within the meaning of the GDPR (Art. 26) with regard to the Insights data:

You can assert your data subject rights against both us and Meta Platforms Ireland. Further data protection information on Meta Platforms Ireland in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR is available here:


My website uses an iframe of the BeatStars Player. This player is provided by BeatStars Inc. 5816 Van Winkle Lane, Austin, TX 78739, USA.

Data protection provisions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor

On this website, there are integrated components of PayPal. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If you choose “PayPal” as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, your data is automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, you agree to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing. The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order. The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by PayPal to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks. PayPal will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order. You have the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from PayPal. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal may be retrieved under

Google Analytics

I use Google Analytics on my website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google).

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze how my website is used. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. My legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of my website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time, or frequency of your visits to my website will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, I use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function, whereby Google truncates the IP address within the EU or the EEA before it is transmitted to the US.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to my website and what visitors do once there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of my website and of the internet in general.

Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google provides further information with regard to its data protection practices at, including options you can exercise to prevent such use of your data.

In addition, Google offers an opt-out add-on at in addition with further information. This add-on can be installed on the most popular browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit my website. The add-on informs Google Analytics' JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to me or to other web analytics services I may use as detailed herein.

Google Tag Manager

I use Google Tag Manager to manage “website tags”. Tags are small code elements on my website that run upon certain interactions with the website and send measured data to the third party programs used (e.g. Google Analytics). The Tag Manager itself does not use cookies and does not collect any personal data. The Tag Manager triggers other tags that collect data and place cookies under certain circumstances (e.g. the third party programs used). The Tag Manager does not access this data.

Google Fonts

My website uses Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google). To enable the display of certain fonts on my website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established whenever my website is accessed.

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. My legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of my site.

When you access my website, a connection to Google is established from which Google can identify the site from which your request has been sent and to which IP address the fonts are being transmitted for display. Google offers detailed information at and in particular on options for preventing the use of data.

Embedded YouTube videos

When you visit a website into which YouTube videos are embedded, Google receives information that you have accessed this website. The data mentioned in the above section (“usage data”) is also transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you can log into or whether no user account exists. If you are logged into your Google account, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out prior to visiting websites into which YouTube videos are embedded.

Google stores this data as a user profile and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-led configuration of its website. Such evaluation takes place (even for users who are not logged in) for the purposes of demand-oriented advertising. You can find more information in the Google Privacy Policy:

The legal basis for the use of YouTube videos on my website is my legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR) in the demand-oriented, visually optimised presentation of my website, above all through the use of videos.

Right to object
You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google in order to exercise this right. You can use the privacy settings in your Google account to determine how Google can use your data for advertising or other purposes. This includes settings determining the display of advertisements (“ads”).
