Meta is a social network of Meta Platforms Ireland, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter “Meta”). On our website, we have included the Meta Pixel. For a summary of the Meta Pixel, please refer to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/meta-pixel.
When you enter a page on our website that contains the Meta Pixel, your browser or app will establish a direct connection to Meta’s servers where the pixel is loaded from. The information that your browser has visited the corresponding page of our online services will be transmitted to Meta, even if you do not have a Meta account or are not logged into your account. This information (including your IP address) will be sent by your browser directly to a server of Meta in the United States of America and stored there.
If you are logged into your Meta account at the same time, it is also possible to assign the page impression to your Meta profile. If you click on embedded Meta buttons and log into your Meta account (or are already logged in), this information will be sent directly to a Meta server and stored there. The corresponding information is published on your Meta profile and in your chronicle/timeline in short form. Meta can thus collect and store additional usage data. If you want to prevent the transmission and storage of your data and your behavior on our online services through Meta, you must use the opt-out solution.
