Facebook and Instagram

The social media plug-ins ("plug-ins") of the social network Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") are integrated on our website. When you visit our website, Facebook receives information that you have visited the website with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook icon available on our website while you are simultaneously logged in and/or registered for your Facebook account, the content of the website is redirected to your Facebook profile. Facebook can then associate your visit to the website with your user account. The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have a Facebook account or not. Slovenská sporiteľňa informs you that when using our website, it has no influence on the data collected and the data processing processes, and we are also unaware of the total scope of the data collected, the purpose of the processing or the storage periods of the data. Facebook stores the collected data about you as user profiles and uses them for its own advertising, market research purposes and/or to tailor its services and tools to registered users. Such evaluation is mainly carried out in order to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles, and you must contact Facebook with your objection. We recommend that you always log out when you have finished using Facebook, particularly to avoid having your online activity linked to your profile. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Facebook, please refer to Facebook's privacy statement at the following link:

We would also like to inform you that we may use services provided by Facebook Irelend Limited, which are labelled as "data file custom audiences" - audience management for the implementation of advertising campaigns, whereby the data processed by us may be combined with personal data processed in Facebook's databases, and "measurement and analytics", whereby Facebook processes personal data on our behalf in order to measure the performance and impact of our advertising campaigns and to provide us with reports of users who have seen and responded to our advertising content. This processing of your personal data may therefore occur if you interact with our advertising content or our websites when using your user profile set up on Facebook. In such cases, we use Facebook as a data processor, and the following legal safeguards apply to the processing of your personal data:,

We also use Facebook's "audience management" service ("Page Insights") to obtain statistical (aggregated) information about the use of our Facebook profile. In connection with the processing of personal data about visitors to our profile as part of the functionality of this service, we have entered into a so-called joint controllers agreement with Facebook, the main parts of which can be found here:

If the processing of personal data explained above is objectionable to you, you can object to it or you can also use the available self-regulatory tools developed for the online marketing sector, which are available here: and These online tools allow you to automatically identify third-party digital identifiers (including those from Facebook) in your browser and delete them, thereby also preventing the possible processing of your personal data.
