Data protection declaration for the presence on facebook.com (Facebook page) of LIR gGmbH

The Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) gGmbH 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.

We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions on 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 www.lir-mainz.de.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed 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 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:


Facebook's full data policy can be found here:


How 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 stated by Facebook and is not known to us.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses). 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 you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie with your Facebook ID on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can directly identify you. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access interactive features of the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After any login, you will again be recognisable to Facebook 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#

We, as the provider of the information service, do not collect and process any further data from your use of our service.

You can find the current version of this data protection declaration under "Data protection" on our Facebook page. If you have any questions about our information offering, you can reach us at info@lir-mainz.de.
