Privacy statement

for Facebook, Instagram- and LinkedIn Fanpage

Protecting your data is of utmost importance to us. Our privacy statements for different groups of data subjects offer a brief overview of the personal data we collect and what it is used for.

We, CAMPUS 02 University of Applied Sciences (abbr. CAMPUS 02), Körblergasse 126, 8010 Graz, run a fan page on Facebook.com and on Instagram.com. The fan pages enable us to present our company and our range of degree programmes. In doing so, we retrieve different statistical data categories about Facebook and Instagram users via the so-called “Facebook Target Groups – Insights”. These statistics are generated and made available by Facebook. As the operator of the site, we have no influence on the generation and presentation of these statistics. We cannot deactivate this function or prevent data generation and processing. We receive data from two groups of people: People who are connected to our fan page and people on Facebook/Instagram.

For a selectable period of time, Facebook will make the following data available:

Total number of page views, subscribers, people reached, likes, number of active members, most active contributing members, number of new members, member names and profile information, number of posts and other interactions, page activity, number of video views, contribution reach, comments, popular days and times of Interactions, number of membership requests, most popular posts, distribution of members by gender, age, country and location.

Personal data is processed regardless of whether you are logged in or registered on Facebook/Instagram or not.

These page insights provide us with insights into the interactions on our fan page. Through the page insights, we do not have access to your personal data and cannot draw any identity conclusions, as we can only retrieve aggregated statistics.

These statistics especially include the following data:
Follower data (follower numbers (total and new) including their development over a configurable period of time, listing of all followers, time since you became a follower of our fan page), visitor data (page views, number of visitors, button clicks, page view metrics, desktop and mobile visits, time period, visitor demographics), update metrics (number of reactions, comments and shares on update highlights, metrics for updates, time period, followers gained organically and sponsored, engagement with updates: time period, update name, publisher, creation date, impressions, video views, clicks, click-through rate, reactions, comments, shares).
