Facebook Privacy Policy

3M uses Facebook Pixels to establish a direct connection with the Facebook server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cookies requiring your consent. By integrating the Facebook pixel and using Commerce Connector, a third-party tool, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. The processing of this data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data policy. Special information and details about the Facebook pixel and its functionality can also be found in the Facebook help area.  3M is  jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Facebook), for the collection and transfer of data in this process.

  • This applies to the following purposes:

    • The creation of individualized or suitable ads, as well as for their optimization.
    • Delivery of commercial and transaction-related messages (e.g., via Messenger).
  • The following processes are therefore not covered by joint controllership:

    • The process that takes place after the collection and transmission is within the sole responsibility of Facebook.
    • The preparation of reports and analyses in aggregated and anonymized form is carried out as a Processor and is therefore within our responsibility.
