According to a ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on 5th June 2018 (Ref. No.: C-210/16), the operator of a Facebook fan page shall be jointly responsible with Facebook for the processing of the personal data of the visitors to their page. We would hereby like to give you the following information about the processing of your personal data:
Regensburg University Hospital maintains the Facebook page in order to communicate with users there and in order to be able to refer to posts, etc. We would like to advise you that Facebook shall record your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies when you visit our Facebook page. The data collected in this context shall be processed by Meta Platform, Ltd. and, if applicable, transferred to countries outside the European Union. This may result in risks for the users because it could make it more difficult to enforce the users’ rights. Facebook uses the standard contractual clauses that have been approved by the European Commission and relies, if applicable, on the adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission with respect to certain countries for data transfers from the EEA to the USA and other countries (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
In its data use policy, Facebook describes, in a general way, which information Facebook receives and how this is used: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy
You can find Facebook’s full data policy here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy
How Facebook uses the data from your visit to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, for how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not specified clearly and conclusively by Facebook and is not known to us.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device shall be transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address shall be anonymised (in the case of "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook shall also store information about its user’s devices (e.g. within the framework of the “log-in notification” function). If applicable, Facebook shall thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged into Facebook as a user, there is a cookie on your device with your Facebook identification. As a result, Facebook is able to see that you have visited this page and to track how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons integrated into webpages, Facebook is able to record your visits to these pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. Contents or advertising tailored to you may be offered on the basis of this data.
