When you visit the Facebook fan page of the University of Magdeburg, among other things, Facebook records your IP address and other information that is available on your computer in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide the operators of Facebook pages with statistical information about your use of their pages.

Note about the handling of sensitive data

Facebook gives its users the opportunity to communicate with contacts, to discuss different topics and make personal content available and share it with the internet community. These varied possibilities do not present difficulties for experienced users but for inexperienced users this variety of functions may become a problem. Be careful with your data and do your homework about Facebook and its privacy settings before disclosing information in your profile or personal content. Personal content that is not intended for public consumption but still finds its way onto the internet may in some cases be difficult to remove again or change retrospectively and in the worst-case scenario may remain visible on the internet for a very long time.
