Information about the internet presence

  • Technical implementation

    Our web server is operated by ekom21 - KGRZ Hessen with the help of Chamaeleon AG. The personal data you provide when visiting our website is therefore processed on our behalf by
    Chamaeleon Aktiengesellschaft für innovative Netzlösungen
    Robert-Bosch-Straße 12 / Haus IV
    56410 Montabaur


  • Logging

    When you access this or other Internet pages, you transmit data to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

    • Date and time of the request
    • Name of the requested file
    • Page from which the file was requested
    • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
    • Web browser and operating system used
    • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
    • Volume of data transferred.

    We use these server log files exclusively for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the access data and the server log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies primarily in guaranteeing and optimising our offer on the websites. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its processing.

  • Active components

    We use active components such as Javascript, Java applets or Active-X controls. You can switch off this function by setting your internet browser.

  • Cookies

    This website uses so-called cookies, the scope and functionality of which are technically necessary to make our offer more attractive and to use certain functions. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your terminal device and stored by your browser.

    The so-called "session cookies" are automatically deleted when you end your visit to our website or close the browser.

    Other cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. Alternatively, you can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

    You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and agree to accept cookies in individual cases or only in certain cases, or refuse to accept all cookies. We would like to point out that this may mean that not all functions of this website can be used.

  • Integration of YouTube videos and social plugins

    When visiting our website, additional services from YouTube and social plugins (e.g. Twitter, Facebook and Google+) are offered via a so-called two-click solution. When the website is accessed for the first time, no data is transmitted to the operators. Only after the user has consented to the opt-in procedure by clicking on the appropriate button will data (including the URL of the current page and the user's IP address) be transmitted to the respective operator immediately and for each subsequent visit. As a user, you can thus decide for yourself whether you consent to the activation of these offers and the transfer of data. The user can revoke this consent at any time and prevent further data transmission to the operators by clicking on the corresponding link on the homepage (opt-in procedure). I am not quite sure if this applies to our website.

  • Evaluation of user behaviour (web tracking systems; range measurement)

    Our website uses Matomo(, an open source software to analyse visitor traffic to our website. Matomo uses so-called cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is stored on our servers in Germany and is not passed on to third parties. You can object to the use of Matomo. We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO: the processing is carried out to analyse user behaviour and is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests.

Facebook fan page information (as of May 2022)

  • Operator of the Fanpage

    District of Waldeck-Frankenberg
    The District Committee
    Public Relations, Culture, Sponsorship and Partnerships Department
    Südring 2, 34497 Korbach

  • Fanpage details

    The district of Waldeck-Frankenberg uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered here.

    The district points out that users use this Facebook page and its functions on their own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).

  • Legal basis for data processing

    The legal basis for the processing of data after interaction with the content of the Facebook fan page of the district by the users is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e DSGVO in conjunction with § 3 BDSG and, if the users have given their consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

  • Purposes of data processing

    The operation of the Facebook page of the district is important for a targeted and balanced public relations work of the district. The associated processing of users' data when visiting the page is done for this purpose.

    This is data processing in the public interest within the meaning of Article 6(1)(e) DSGVO. The Federal Constitutional Court ruled in 1977 that the public relations work of the district is not only constitutionally permissible, but also necessary, since democratic decisions require informed citizens. Further rulings came to the same conclusion.

    Statistical studies show that the use of media and the information behaviour of citizens is changing. More and more, providers on the internet, especially social media platforms, are being used for information. One of the aims of the district's public relations work is to reach as many groups of the population as possible and to inform them within the framework of its constitutional mandate.

    The district uses Facebook alongside other information channels. Citizens thus have the opportunity to find out about the work of the federal government and make contact in different places, but always with the same quality. You can find more information about our services at .

  • Processing of personal data by Facebook

    When visiting this Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address as well as other information that is available in the form of cookies on the user's PC. This information is used to provide the district, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with anonymised statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More detailed information on this is provided by Facebook under the following link:

    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 what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and on the settings for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: The complete Facebook data guidelines can be found here:

    When a Facebook page is accessed, the IP address assigned to the user's end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.

    If users are currently logged in to Facebook, a cookie with your Facebook ID is placed on their end device. This enables Facebook to track that users have visited this page and how users have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into websites enable Facebook to record visits by users to these websites and to assign them to the Facebook profile of the user. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to users.

    Those who wish to avoid this should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on the user's device and close and restart the browser. In this way, Facebook information that can directly identify users is deleted. This allows users to use the Facebook fan page without revealing their Facebook ID. When users access interactive functions of the page (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. After logging in, users are again recognisable to Facebook as users. Information on how to manage or delete information about users can be found on the following Facebook support pages:

    According to its own information, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed to provide the services and Facebook products or until the user's respective account is deleted, whichever comes first. This will depend on the circumstances of the individual case, in particular the nature of the data, why it is being collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational storage needs. More information on data storage is available at

  • Facebook Page Insights

    Facebook processes a number of personal data of page visitors in its so-called page insights for its own purposes. The processing takes place regardless of whether page visitors are registered with Facebook or not and whether page visitors are members of the Facebook network. Users who access the Facebook pages without being registered or logged in to Facebook also have the option of influencing the scope of data processing by means of a cookie banner set by Facebook. More information on Facebook cookies can be found at:

    Page insights are aggregate statistics generated from specific "events" that are logged by Facebook servers when people interact with pages and the content associated with them. Page operators themselves do not have access to the personal data processed as part of "events", but only to the aggregated, anonymised page insights. You can find more information at:

  • Rights of the data subject

    Where personal data of users is processed, they have the right of access, rectification, opposition, portability and deletion of the data in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Facebook Ireland has committed under the Page Insights Supplement to respond to data subject requests in accordance with Facebook's obligations under the Page Insights Supplement (available at

    We forward users' requests for data processing when visiting a Facebook fan page to Facebook in accordance with the Insights Page Supplement. Users can find out more about their data protection rights at the following link:

  • Alternative unconditional access to information

    Alternatively, users can also access the information offered via the Facebook fan page on our website at .
