Data protection statement

Protecting your personal data is a top priority for us!

Our website can be used without providing personal data. 

We process the personal data of specific groups of data subjects exclusively in accordance with the provisions of the Austrian Protection Amendment Act and the General Data Protection Regulation. Data is deemed personal if it can be unambiguously assigned to a specific natural person. The general regulations on the website as well as regulations regarding various groups of data subjects provide you with information on the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by


FACC AG

Fischerstraße 9

4910 Ried im Innkreis

dataprivacy@facc.com

 

Since the company does not process data of authorities or public bodies, and its core activity does not consist in carrying out processing operations which require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects, nor in the extensive processing of special categories of data pursuant to articles 9 and 10 of the General Data Protection Regulation, no data protection officer has been appointed. The data protection coordinator of FACC AG is happy to answer any inquiries regarding data protection at dataprivacy@facc.com.

In this data protection statement, we wish to inform you of the most important aspects of personal data processing within the framework of our website and of other processing activities in connection with external persons. 


Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information generated by Google cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to the use of the website and the internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. By using this website, you consent to the processing of  data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above. 

Please note that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" to improve data protection. In this case, Google will first shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA before being shortened there. This therefore precludes personal identification when analyzing the use of our website. You can refuse the use of Google Analytics cookies by extending your browser, which allows you to exercise your right to object to the proactive collection, processing and use of data by Google Analytics. To do this, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. This prevents Google Analytics from storing information about websites you have visited. For more information and instructions for downloading and installing this opt-out browser add-on, click here.


Facebook Pixel

This website uses the Facebook pixel of the social networking site Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA or, if you are a resident of the European Union, by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Facebook"). Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection law.

When visiting our website, software establishes a connection and transmits data to Facebook servers, some of which are located in the USA. The Facebook pixel also uses cookies to store information about website users and to analyze visitors’ use of the website.

All personal data collected by FACC AG is anonymous and therefore does not allow FACC AG to infer the identity of the user. However, as this data is stored and processed by Facebook, a link to the respective Facebook user profile may be established. Facebook may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or in the case that third parties process this data on Facebook's behalf.

Facebook processes data in accordance with Facebook's data usage guidelines. For more information on how the remarketing pixel works and how Facebook ads are displayed in general, please refer to Facebook's Data Use Policy.

FACC AG uses the Facebook pixel on its website for the purposes of pursuing its legitimate interests in analyzing, optimizing and efficiently managing its online content. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using the Facebook pixel is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The Facebook pixel allows Facebook to select visitors of the FACC AG website as target groups for the display of Facebook ads. FACC AG therefore uses the Facebook pixel accordingly so that the posted Facebook ads are only displayed to Facebook users who have shown an interest in the online content of FACC AG or who exhibit certain characteristics (e.g. an interest in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) which FACC AG transmits to Facebook ("custom audiences"). By using the Facebook pixel, FACC AG also wishes to ensure that the Facebook ads match the potential interests of the users and are not perceived as a nuisance. In addition, the Facebook pixel allows FACC AG to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by recording whether users were referred to the FACC AG website after clicking on a Facebook ad ("conversion"). For detailed information on how Facebook processes user data, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy.
