2. Information on the processing of personal data by Facebook

In its ruling of 5 June 2018, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled: "The operator of a Facebook fan page is jointly responsible with Facebook for the processing of the personal data of visitors to its page". Accordingly, operators are also liable for any violations of Facebook, such as user tracking.

Facebook may collect and process user data for the purposes of targeted advertising (analysis, creation of personalized advertising), creation of user profiles and market research. Facebook uses cookies to store and further process this information, i.e. small text files that are stored on the users' various end devices. If the user has a Facebook profile and is logged in to it, the storage and analysis also takes place across all devices, i.e. regardless of whether the pages are accessed via PC, mobile or tablet.
