We would like to point out that you use the Facebook page of WEC-Magazin and its functions under your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also access the information offered via this page on our website at wec-magazin.de or wec-magazin.com.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, the operators of Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides further information on this under the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data use guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and how to set up advertisements. The Data Usage Guidelines are available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy

You can find the complete Facebook data guidelines here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly named by Facebook and is not known to us.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook stores information about its users’ end devices (e.g. as part of the “registration notification” function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook identification is stored on your terminal. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This information can be used to tailor content or advertising to you.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the “Stay logged in” function, delete the cookies available on your device and close and restart your browser. This deletes Facebook information that immediately identifies you. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access the interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, Facebook will recognize you again as a specific user.

For information on how to manage or delete information about you, please visit the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.
