7. Facebook

The internet presence of Lidl Cyprus uses social plugins ("Plugins") from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
The plugins are recognizable on one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs-up" symbol) or are labelled with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be seen here: (Link: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins).
When you access a web site which contains such plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the latter in the website. Lidl Cyprus therefore has no control over the scope of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin, and we inform you in accordance with our state of knowledge: (Link http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=17512).
Through integration of the plugin, Facebook obtains information that the respective page in our internet presence has been accessed by you. If you are logged in in Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with the plugins, e.g. press the Like Button or enter a commentary, the corresponding information is transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a Facebook member, it is still possible that Facebook detects your IP address and stores it.
The Facebook plugins can be posted by web site operators on their own web page or platform. With a click on this plugin, registered Facebook users can automatically leave a note in their Facebook profile that they accept linked content of the web site operator. The integrated Facebook plugin "communicates" continuously with Facebook and immediately sends data to Facebook when you are visiting the internet page on which it is used, – even if the user does not click on it.
Via so-called iFrame integration, the browser also loads, in addition to the actually accessed page, a small "page in the page" that contains the respective plugin. In the case of Facebook plugins, this iFrame and source text comes in its entirety from Facebook and cannot, as a rule, be controlled or processed by Lidl Cyprus.
If the user is no longer logged in or registered, a cookie is nonetheless created, which bears a designation such as, for example, B7dcTqgWq3fuDgIIFw47QPIO and is valid for two years.
If the browser later re-connects with the server of the social network, this cookie is transferred and may be used there for the creation of a profile. In the case of users who register afterwards, a linking of the information stored in the cookie is still possible.
If the user is logged in to Facebook in the current browser session, both the accessed page and the cookie are transmitted – here it is possible to clearly assign this information to the respective user account via the session ID.
We are not familiar with the purpose and scope of the data collection, nor with the further processing and use of the data by Facebook. For further information, as well as your rights in this regard and settings options for the protection of your privacy, please contact Facebook Inc. or adhere to the data protection policies of Facebook: (Link: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php).
It is possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker" (Link: http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
