Meta also uses the Sites to collect statistical data on the conduct of visitors on the Sites, including age, sex, relationship status, work, lifestyle, fields of interest, information on purchases and geographical information. For such purposes, Meta places cookies on your unit when you visit the Sites. Each cookie contains a unique identification code which remains active for a period of two years, unless it is deleted prior to expiry of such period. Meta receives, stores and processes your personal data by way of the said cookies.
2. VOLA's processing of personal data, purpose and legal basis for processing
VOLA also uses your personal data to improve our products, improve the Sites and to perform research activities, work out statistics, develop and protect VOLA's services and products, including on the basis of your feedback. In that connection, VOLA uses aggregate data which Meta makes available by way of Meta's cookies via the "Insight" features, such as data on age, sex, relationship status, work, lifestyle, fields of interest as well as information on purchases and geographical information.
VOLA processes your personal data as a consequence of VOLA's legitimate interest in being able to improve VOLA's products and services (Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)).
Meta processes, among other things, your personal data to enable Meta to improve its advertisement system and to provide VOLA with statistics, which Meta, for example, works out on the basis of your visit to the Sites, with a view to advertising and customising the activities on the Sites. By way of cookies, Meta and VOLA consequently gain knowledge of whether you "like" the Sites and use its apps to the effect that Meta and VOLA will be able to customise the contents of the Sites and develop features which may be of interest to you.
Meta processes your personal data as a consequence of its legitimate interests, including its interest in providing innovative, customised, secure and profitable services (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). Meta also processes your personal data in accordance with your consent, which you are entitled to withdraw at any point in time via the Meta settings (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR).

5. Links to other websites, etc.
Meta's general set-up and the agreements entered into by and between VOLA and Meta dictate that you must contact Meta if you wish to exercise your rights. This is owing to the fact that only Meta is, in pure functional terms, capable of taking the steps necessary to accommodate most of your requests.
