Sometimes we provide direct information about our company and the associated offers, such as products, events, special promotions and offers, etc.

b. User analysis
With the help of this Facebook fan page, we are also able to receive statistics on visits and visitors that Facebook creates. This enables us to better and more purposefully control our marketing of our activities. In doing so, we can sometimes gain knowledge of the Facebook profiles of individual users who like our fan page and / or use applications on the page. This enables us to provide the users concerned with improved content and functions via our Facebook fan page.
To further improve our content on our Facebook fan page, we can also use the information collected during visits to access demographic and geographic evaluations based on it. This enables us to place targeted advertisements based on your interests without having any immediate knowledge of your identity as a visitor.
If you use several end devices when you visit Facebook, data can also be recorded and evaluated across devices, provided that you visit our fan page as a registered Facebook profile with your logged in Facebook profile.
Visitor statistics generated are only forwarded to us anonymously. We are not able to access the underlying data.
