I. Principles

1. Joint controllers for the processing of personal dataGemeinsame für die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten Verantwortliche

The purposes and means of processing personal data when visiting our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Tomorrowss.education ("Facebook Page") are determined by Tomorrows Education GmbH, Am Orangeriepark 5, 13156 Berlin, Germany ("Tomorrows Education GmbH") and Facebook Ireland Ltd. ("Facebook") jointly within the meaning of Article 26 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This results from the fact that Tomorrows Education GmbH, as the operator of the Facebook page, by setting up such a page gives Facebook the opportunity to place cookies on the computer or any other device of the person visiting the Facebook page ("visitor"), regardless of whether the visitor has a Facebook account.

Facebook assumes primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights Data as part of its shared responsibility and complies with all obligations under the GDPR with respect to the processing of Insights Data (including Articles 12 and 13 of the GDPR, Articles 15 to 22 of the GDPR and Articles 32 to 34 of the GDPR). In addition, Facebook provides the essence of this Page Insights Addendum to data subjects (the relevant "Page Insights Controller Addendum" can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum).

Below is a description of how Tomorrows Education GmbH and Facebook handle personal data when you visit the Facebook page. However, as Tomorrow's Education GmbH generally or to a large extent has no influence on the data collected by Facebook and its processing by Facebook, we are currently unable to provide any conclusive information on the purpose and scope of the processing of your data by Facebook. However, we will monitor further developments in this regard and adapt this privacy policy accordingly if necessary.

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 (especially commenting, sharing, rating).

5. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as consent of the data subject is obtained for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which Tomorrows Education GmbH or Facebook is subject, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Tomorrow's Education GmbH, Facebook or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

6. Possibility of objection and removal

The visitor has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time (see also rights of the data subjects). If the visitor contacts us by email, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time.

The collection of data for the provision of the Facebook page and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the Facebook page. Consequently, there is no possibility for the visitor to object.

7. Rights of the data subjects

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the persons responsible:

If you wish to exercise your rights, you can address your concerns to both Tomorrows Education GmbH and Facebook. For this purpose, you can use the contact options listed above, for example. If you contact us, we will forward your request to Facebook insofar as it concerns questions regarding the processing of Insights data. Facebook will respond to enquiries in accordance with the obligations incumbent upon us under the Page Insights Supplement.

II. Processing of personal data by Tomorrows Education GmbH

1. Purpose of the data processing

Tomorrow's Education GmbH maintains online presences within social networks in order to communicate with the interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them there about our products, events and news.

When you visit our Facebook page (regardless of whether you are logged into your Facebook account or not), your browser transmits certain data to the web server for which Facebook is responsible for technical reasons. In addition, Facebook uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your end device via your browser. Cookies set by Facebook are intended, among other things, to enable Tomorrows Education GmbH, as the operator of the Facebook page, to obtain statistics that Facebook compiles based on visits to this page for the purpose of managing the marketing of our activities.

2. Description and scope of data processing

As the operator of the Facebook page, Tomorrows Education GmbH can obtain anonymised statistical data concerning visitors to our Facebook page with the help of the Facebook Page Insights function, which Facebook provides to us free of charge as a non-derogable part of the user relationship. This data is collected with the help of cookies set by Facebook, each of which contains a unique user code that Facebook stores on the visitor's terminal device. The user code, which can be linked to the login data of such users who are registered with Facebook, is collected and processed when the Facebook page is called up.

In particular, the fan page operator may obtain demographic data provided by Facebook about its target audience - and thus the processing of such data - including trends in age, gender, relationship status and professional situation, information about the lifestyle and interests of its target audience and information about the purchases and online purchasing behaviour of visitors to its page, the categories of goods or services they are most interested in, as well as geographical data informing it where to run special promotions or organise events and, more generally, enabling it to target its information offering as closely as possible.

Although the visitor statistics compiled by Facebook are transmitted to Tomorrows Education GmbH as the operator of the Facebook page exclusively in anonymised form, the compilation of these statistics is based on the prior collection - through the cookies set by Facebook on the end device of the visitors - and the processing of the personal data of these visitors for these statistical purposes. For more information on Facebook Page Insights, please visit:
https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data
https://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights

Data on the Facebook groups linked to our Facebook page are also provided in this way. Due to the constant development of Facebook, the availability and processing of the data changes, so that we refer for further details to the data protection information of Facebook mentioned in the previous paragraph and below under "PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA BY FACEBOOK".

We use this data, which is available in aggregated form, to make our posts and activities on our Facebook page more attractive to users. For example, we use the distributions by age and gender for an adapted address and the preferred visiting times of the users for a time-optimised planning of our posts. Information about the type of end devices used by visitors helps us to adapt the visual design of the posts accordingly. In accordance with the Facebook terms of use, which every user has agreed to as part of creating a Facebook profile, we can identify subscribers and fans of the page and view their profiles as well as other shared information from them.

In addition to this automatically collected anonymised data, we also process the data that you have voluntarily provided to us in the context of e.g. comments on posts or contacting us.

If you click on the link https://www.tomorrows.education/legal/privacy-policy-facebook (you are currently on this page), which is set on the Facebook fan page of Tomorrows Education GmbH, you will be taken to a sub-page of the Tomorrows Education GmbH website. Personal data is also processed on this page. The data protection declaration applicable to these pages can be found here: https://www.tomorrows.education/legal/privacy-policy

3. Data deletion and storage period

Personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, storage may still be necessary if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which Tomorrows Education GmbH is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

III. Processing of personal data by Facebook

In what way 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 fully known to us. We will, however, observe further developments in this regard and, if necessary, adapt this data protection declaration accordingly. The following information is based on information publicly provided by Facebook regarding the processing of personal data when using Facebook products.

1. Purpose of the data processing

Facebook states that it processes visitors' personal data for the following purposes:

For more information about Facebook's data processing purposes, please see the Facebook Data Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

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

When you visit our Facebook page (regardless of whether you are logged into your Facebook account or not), your browser transmits certain data to the web server for which Facebook is responsible for technical reasons. In addition, Facebook uses "cookies". Facebook uses cookies, among other things, to provide Tomorrows Education GmbH, as the operator of the Facebook page, with statistics for the purpose of managing the marketing of our activities. Further information on 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 does Facebook process? In order to provide the Facebook Products, it is necessary for Facebook to process information about visitors. The types of information collected by Facebook depend on how the visitor uses the Facebook Products. The following information may be processed by Facebook:

Things done and provided by visitors and others, such as information about how the visitor uses Facebook Products, information about transactions made on Facebook Products, or information about the people, pages, accounts, hashtags and groups with which the visitor is connected. Device information such as device attributes, identifiers, network and connections, and cookie data.

Information from partners, whereby advertisers, app developers and publishers may send information to Facebook through the Facebook business tools they use, including the social plugins (such as the "Like" button), Facebook Login or the Facebook Pixel. These partners provide Facebook with information about the visitor's activities outside of Facebook.

In addition, Facebook uses cookies that are set on the visitor's end device when the Facebook page is called up, regardless of whether the visitor is logged into his or her Facebook account or not. In addition, Facebook also processes the information stored in the cookies when a person visits Facebook services, services provided by other members of the Facebook group of companies and services provided by other companies that use Facebook services. In addition, other entities such as Facebook partners and other third parties may use cookies on the Facebook Services to provide services to Facebook or the companies advertising on Facebook. For more information about Facebook's use of cookies, please see the Facebook Cookie Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/.

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) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (in particular as part of the "login notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.

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

Information on how to manage or delete information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.

For more information about the types of information Facebook processes, please see the Facebook Data Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

b)   How is the information processed by Facebook shared with others? Facebook works with third party partners who help Facebook provide and improve its products or who use Facebook business tools to help Facebook grow its business. Facebook may share information with the following third party partners:

For more information about the data Facebook may share with third party partners, please see the Facebook Data Policy at https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

c) How does Facebook process and transmit data as part of its global services? Facebook shares information globally, both internally between Facebook companies and externally with its partners, as well as with such persons or organisations with whom the visitor connects and shares something around the world. In doing so, data may also be transferred to and processed in the US or other third countries that do not have an adequate level of data protection. In this regard, Facebook uses standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission or relies on adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission regarding specific countries.

For more information on data transfers by Facebook, please refer to the Facebook Privacy Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

3. Data deletion and storage period: Facebook retains data until it is no longer needed to provide its services and Facebook products, or until the user's Facebook account is deleted, whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination and depends on things like the type of data, why it is being collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational storage needs.

For more information on data deletion and retention periods, please see the Facebook Data Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

Regarding the storage period of cookies set by Facebook, you can find more information in the Facebook Cookie Policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/
