2.5 If you choose to communicate with us through a social media platform or service provided by other third parties, we will collect the information you provide to us through that platform.
3.1 As the data subject, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that are stored as well as their origin, the recipient and the purpose for which they have been processed. You also have the right to have these data corrected, object to them, restrict their processing as well as to have data that have been processed incorrectly or without permission blocked or deleted.

3.4 If you believe that our processing of your personal data violates applicable data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you may complain to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the Data Protection Authority is responsible for this.
4.1 Your personal data are protected by appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions concern in particular the protection against unauthorised, illegal or also accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Cookies are often used to provide functions on platforms or to operate them more efficiently and to forward information to the platform operators.
7.4 There are two categories of cookies:
• First-party cookies, placed directly by us on your computer or mobile device. We will only use these to recognise your computer or mobile device when you visit our platform again.
• Third-party cookies that may be placed by an external service provider through our platform and used by that service provider to recognise your computer or mobile device when you use it to visit other platforms. Third-party cookies are most commonly used for platform analysis or advertising purposes.
7.5 Cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. We use both ‘session cookies’ and ‘permanent cookies’.

7.6 The platform only uses the following cookie types on your computer or mobile device:
Cookies required for important purposes
These cookies are essential for providing you with the services available on this platform and for using some of the functions, such as access to secure areas. Without these cookies, services requested by you, such as transaction pages and secure user accounts, would not be feasible.
These cookies serve a number of purposes related to the presentation, performance and functionality of this platform. The overall purpose, however, is to improve the user-friendliness and the experience of using the platform for the visitor.

The cookies do not contain any personal information. The use of AdWords and DoubleClick cookies only enables Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on previous visits to our or other websites on the internet.

10.1 Facebook plugins (Like button)
This website uses social plugins (“Plugins”) provided by the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The Plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook Social Plug-in” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
When the user accesses a page of the FREYWILLE website containing such a plugin, the browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that the user’s browser has called up the corresponding page of the FREYWILLE website, even if the user does not have a Facebook account or is not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from the user’s browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign the visit of the FREYWILLE website to the Facebook account. If the user interacts with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or making a comment, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate the use of the FREYWILLE website with regard to the advertisements displayed by the user on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about the activities on the FREYWILLE website and to provide further services associated with the use of Facebook.
If the user does not want Facebook to associate the data collected via the FREYWILLE website with the Facebook account, the user must log out of Facebook before visiting the FREYWILLE website.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of privacy can be taken from Facebook’s data protection information:
