Facebook privacy policy

By clicking on "Like" you become a fan of this page, which is visible to the administrators of the page as well as to your friends and possibly other Facebook users. This applies in particular to "likes" or comments on our posts, which are also visible to non-registered visitors and non-fans of this fan page. Even if you are not or do not become a fan of this page, you can leave comments or "likes" on our posts that are visible to others and the administrators of the fan page.

However, this information is neither evaluated by the administrators nor recorded elsewhere. The statistics that Facebook makes available to the administrators are output in aggregated form and do not allow the administrators to draw any conclusions about personal data. In this context, please also note the data usage guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ and make the appropriate privacy settings in your account! Please check exactly what information you publish!

What Facebook learns:
What data Facebook stores in detail and how the company uses this data is not exactly known. What is certain is that Facebook not only stores data that is entered directly by users, but also records the actions of Facebook users - presumably without gaps.

Facebook also

  • gathers the most important data of the computer system from which a user logs into the network - including IP address, processor type and browser version including plug-ins and
  • every visit to websites (widget data) on which a "Like
  • button" is installed. The IP address is also transmitted. If the
  • visitor to the third-party site is a Facebook user and has already logged in to Facebook from the same
  • computer, Facebook can also
  • determine their identity.

This enables Facebook to investigate the preferences, inclinations and contacts of its users very precisely and beyond Facebook usage.

Important note:

We expressly reserve the right to remove comments from this page that violate applicable law or morality and to report this to the platform operator. In cases of criminal relevance, this will also result in criminal investigation proceedings. Comments that are not written in German will be deleted if necessary. If comments contain links and/or references to other pages, these will be deleted for security reasons.

Data protection information X (Twitter)

With one click, you become a follower of this account, which is visible to the administrators of the page as well as to your friends and possibly other users of X (Twitter). This applies in particular to posts.
However, this information is neither analyzed nor recorded elsewhere by the administrators of the police account. The statistics that X (Twitter) makes available to the administrators of the police account are output in aggregated form and do not allow the administrators to draw any conclusions about personal data. In this context, please also note the data usage guidelines at https://www.twitter.com/de/privacy/ and make the appropriate privacy settings in your account! Please check exactly what information you publish!

What X (Twitter) learns:
What data X (Twitter) stores in detail and how the company uses this data is not exactly known. What is certain is that X (Twitter) not only stores data entered directly by users, but also records the actions of X (Twitter) users - presumably without gaps - and passes them on to third parties.

X (Twitter) also learns

  • the most important data of the computer system (log data) from which a
  • user logs into the network - up to the IP address, processor type and
  • browser version including plug-ins and
  • every visit to websites (widget data) on which a Twitter button
  • is installed. The IP address is also transmitted. If the visitor to the external site is a Twitter user and has already logged in to Twitter from the same computer, Twitter can also determine their identity.

This enables X (Twitter) to examine the preferences, inclinations and contacts of its users very precisely and beyond X (Twitter) use.

Important note:

We expressly reserve the right to report posts that violate applicable law or morality to the platform provider and, if necessary, to have them removed from this page. In cases of criminal relevance, this will also result in criminal investigation proceedings. Posts that are not written in German will be deleted if necessary. If posts contain links and/or references to other sites, we reserve the right to report these to the platform provider and, if necessary, to delete them for security reasons.

Data protection information on Instagram

Instagram users share their user profile pictures and communicate either via so-called microblogs or by sharing or commenting on their audiovisual content. Since October 2019, registration has been mandatory on the website, similar to the mobile application.

The police in NRW publicly maintain various profiles on Instagram, which can be found via search. Many police authorities have an Instagram profile. As a rule, similar profiles are offered at the bottom of the selected profile so that you can browse through other police profiles from there.

Information on data protection when using Instragram

When accessing the police services, personal user data, i.e. data that can be used to identify you personally, is collected. Please note that the scope of the data transfer depends on whether you access the Instagram page anonymously or are already logged in with your own Instagram profile.

In its privacy policy, Instagram describes in general terms what information Instagram receives and how it is used. There you will also find information on how to contact Instagram. The privacy policy is available at the following link https://privacycenter.instagram.com/policy/?entry_point=ig_help_center_data_policy_redirect. We do not know how your data is processed or used in detail.

Polizei NRW uses the technical platform of Instagram Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlow Part, CA, 94025, USA. Instagram is part of the Facebook group of companies and shares infrastructure, systems and technology with Facebook and other Facebook companies (https://www.facebook.com/help/111814505650678?ref=dp).
