I. PRINCIPLES

1.    Joint controller for the processing of personal data

The purposes and means of processing personal data when visiting our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MICEServiceGroup ("Facebook page") are determined jointly by MICE Service GmbH, Charlottenstraße 18, 10117 Berlin, Germany ("MICE Service GmbH")
and Facebook Ireland Ltd. ("Facebook") in accordance with Art. 26 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This results from the fact that by setting up such a page, MICE Service GmbH as the operator of the Facebook page grants Facebook the opportunity to set cookies on the computer or any other device of the person who visits the Facebook page ("Visitor") regardless of whether the visitor has a Facebook account.

Within the framework of this joint responsibility, Facebook has the primary responsibility under GDPR for the processing of Insights data and fulfils all obligations under GDPR with respect to the processing of Insights data (including Article 12 and 13 GDPR, Article 15 to 22 GDPR and Article 32 to 34 GDPR). In addition, Facebook makes the principal information concerning this Page Insights Addendum available to the data subject (the relevant  "Page Insights Controller Addendum" can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum).

In the following, you will find a description of the handling of personal data by MICE Service GmbH and Facebook when you visit the Facebook page. Since MICE Service GmbH generally or largely has no influence over the data collected by Facebook or its processing by Facebook, we are currently unable to make any conclusive statements regarding the purpose and scope of processing of your data by Facebook. We will observe future developments in this regard and adjust this privacy policy accordingly if necessary.



We hereby inform you that you are using this Facebook page and its features on your own responsibility. This particularly applies to the use of interactive features (especially commenting, sharing, rating).

5. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies for processing operations that are necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Insofar as processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which MICE Service GmbH or Facebook is subject, Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to preserve a legitimate interest of MICE Service GmbH, Facebook or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

6. Option of objection and removal

The visitor has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time (see also rights of the data subject). If users contact us via email, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time.

The collection of data to display the Facebook page and the storage of data in logfiles is required for the operation of the Facebook page. Accordingly, the visitor has no option of objection in this regard.

7. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data is processed, you are considered a data subject as defined by the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights with respect to the controller:

The right to obtain confirmation regarding the personal data stored by MICE Service GmbH or Facebook concerning you;

The right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing concerning your personal data;

The right to object to processing that serves the legitimate interests of MICE Service GmbH or Facebook, a public interest or profiling, unless MICE Service GmbH or Facebook can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;

Right to portability of data;

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;

Right to withdraw your consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal data at any time with future effect.

If you wish to exercise your rights, you can address your concern either to MICE Service GmbH or to Facebook. For this you can, for example, use the contact details listed above. If you contact us, we will forward your enquiry to Facebook if it concerns questions regarding the processing of Insights data.

II. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA BY MICE Service GmbH


1.    Purpose of data processing

MICE Service GmbH maintains online pages on social networks to communicate with interested parties and users who are active on these networks and to inform them about our products, events and new developments. If you access our Facebook page (regardless of whether you are logged in to your Facebook account or not), your browser will transfer certain technically necessary data to the web server controlled by Facebook. Facebook also uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files stored by your browser in your device’s memory. Cookies placed by Facebook are intended to enable MICE Service GmbH as the operator of the Facebook page to obtain statistics that Facebook creates based on visits to this page in order to control the marketing of our activities.

2.    Description and scope of data processing

As the operator of the Facebook page, MICE Service GmbH can obtain anonymous statistical data concerning the visitors to our Facebook page using the feature Facebook Page Insights, which Facebook provides free of charge as a non-modifiable component of the user relationship. This data is collected using cookies set by Facebook that each contain a unique user code and are stored by Facebook on the visitor’s device. The user code, which can be linked with the login data of users that are registered with Facebook, is collected and processed when the Facebook page is accessed.

In particular, the fan page operator can obtain demographic data prepared by Facebook regarding its target group – and therefore the processing of this data – for instance trends concerning the age, gender, relationship status and professional situation, information about the lifestyle and interests of the target group and information about purchases and online purchasing behaviour of the visitors to its page, the categories of goods or services that interest them most, as well as geographical data that inform the operator where special ad campaigns should be conducted or events should be organised, and which enable the operator in general to offer information that is as target-oriented as possible.

Although the visitor statistics prepared by Facebook are exclusively transmitted to MICE Service GmbH as the operator of the Facebook page in anonymous form, the preparation of these statistics is based on the prior collection, through the cookies placed by Facebook on the visitor’s device, and the processing of this visitor’s personal data for these statistical purposes. You can find more information about Facebook Page Insights at:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data

https://www.facebook.com/help/pages/insights

Data regarding the Facebook groups linked to our Facebook page is also made available in this way. The availability and processing of data changes due to the constant development of Facebook; as a result, we refer to the corresponding privacy policy of Facebook mentioned in the above sections as well as below under "PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA BY FACEBOOK" for more details.

We use this data available in aggregated form to make our posts and activities on our Facebook page more attractive for users. For instance, we use distributions according to age and gender for adapted communication, and we use the preferred visiting times of users to plan our posts at optimal times. Information about the type of devices used by visitors helps us to adapt the visual design of posts to their devices. According to the Facebook terms of use, which every user has consented to when creating a Facebook profile, we can identify the subscribers and fans of a page and see their profiles as well as other information that they share.

In addition to this automatically collected, anonymous data, we also process data that you have voluntarily provided to us, for instance in comments on posts or when establishing contact.

If you click the link to https://www.miceservice.de/datenschutz-facebook (the page you are currently visiting) that is placed on the Facebook fan page of MICE Service GmbH, you will be forwarded to a subpage of the MICE Service GmbH website. Personal data is also processed on this page. You can find the authoritative privacy policy for these pages here: https://www.miceservice.de/datenschutz

3.    Erasure of data and duration of storage

Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can be extended beyond this period if this is provided for by European or national legislature in the regulations, laws or other provisions of Union law to which MICE Service GmbH is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted after the expiration of a storage period prescribed by the abovementioned regulations unless continued storage of the data is necessary for concluding or performing a contract.

III. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA BY FACEBOOK

We are not fully aware, and Facebook does not conclusively and clearly state the manner in which Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page can be attributed to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page will be transferred to third parties. We will observe future developments in this regard and adjust this privacy policy accordingly if necessary. The following information is based on the information provided publicly by Facebook regarding the processing of personal data in the use of Facebook products.

1.    Purpose of data processing

According to its own statements, Facebook processes the personal data of users for the following purposes:

    • Provision, personalisation and improvement of Facebook products;
    • Provision of metrics, analysis and other Facebook services;
    • Promotion of safety, integrity and security;
    • Communication with Facebook users;
    • Research and innovation for social purposes.

More information about the purposes of data processing by Facebook can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

More information about Facebook’s legitimate interests regarding the processing of personal data can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/legal_bases

If you access our Facebook page (regardless of whether you are logged in to your Facebook account or not), your browser will transfer certain technically necessary data to the web server controlled by Facebook. Facebook also uses "cookies". Facebook uses cookies in part to provide MICE Service GmbH as the operator of the Facebook page with statistics to control the marketing of our activities. More information about the use of cookies by Facebook can be found in the Facebook cookie policy:

https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/

2.    Description and scope of data processing

a) What types of information are processed by Facebook?

To provide Facebook products it is necessary for Facebook to process information concerning visitors. The types of information collected by Facebook depend on how the visitor uses Facebook products. The following information may be processed by Facebook:

Matters transacted and provided by visitors and others such as information about how the visitor uses Facebook products, information about transactions carried out on Facebook products or information about the persons, pages, accounts, hashtags and groups with which the visitor is associated.

Device information such as device attributes, identifiers, network and connections as well as cookie data.

Information from partners, meaning that advertisers, app developers and publishers can send Facebook information using Facebook business tools such as social plugins (e.g. the "Like" button), Facebook login or the Facebook pixel. These partners provide Facebook with information about the activities of the visitor outside of Facebook.

Facebook uses cookies that are stored on the visitor’s device when accessing the Facebook page regardless of whether the visitor is logged in to a Facebook account or not. Facebook also processes the information stored in the cookies when Facebook services, services provided by other members of the Facebook company group and services provided by other companies that use the Facebook services are made available to a person. Other entities such as Facebook partners and other third parties can also use cookies on the Facebook page to provide services to Facebook or the companies advertising on Facebook. More information about the use of cookies by Facebook can be found in the Facebook cookie policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address communicated by your device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address will be anonymised (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about its users’ devices (especially as part of the feature "log-in notification"); it is possible that Facebook will be able to attribute IP addresses to individual users in this context.

If you want to prevent this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the feature "Stay logged in", delete the cookies stored on your device, close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that could be used to identify you directly. This allows you to use our Facebook page without your Facebook ID being disclosed. If you access interactive features on the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message etc.), a Facebook login window will appear. If you log in again, you will once more be identifiable to Facebook as a specific user.

You can find details about how to manage or delete information stored concerning you on the following Facebook help pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.

You can find more details about the types of information processed by Facebook in the Facebook privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

b)   How is the information processed by Facebook shared with others?

Facebook collaborates with third-party partners who help Facebook provide and improve its products or use Facebook business tools to increase business. In this context, Facebook may share information with the following third-party partners:

    • Partners that use Facebook analytical services;
    • Advertisers;
    • Partners for metrics;
    • Partners who offer goods and services through Facebook products;
    • Suppliers and providers;
    • Researchers and academics;
    • Criminal authorities and enforcement authorities or legal enquiries.

More information about the data Facebook may share with third-party partners can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

c) How does Facebook process and transfer data as part of its global services?

Facebook shares information globally both internally between Facebook companies and externally with its partners as well as the persons or organisations with whom the visitor is connected anywhere in the world and with whom the visitor shares content. In this process, data may also be transmitted and processed in the USA or other third countries that do not provide an adequate level of data protection. In this regard, Facebook uses the standard contracting clauses approved by the European Commission and bases its operations on the adequacy decisions passed by the European Commission concerning specific countries.

Facebook Inc., the parent company of Facebook in the USA, is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement and is therefore committed to complying with European data protection guidelines. More information about Facebook’s Privacy Shield status can be found here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

More information about data transferred by Facebook can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

3. Erasure of data and duration of storage

Facebook stores data until it is no longer required to provide its services and Facebook products, or until the user’s Facebook account is deleted, whichever happens first. This is a case-by-case determination and depends on factors such as the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and the relevant legal or operational storage requirements.

More information about the erasure of data and duration of storage can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php
