Facebook stewardship

THE SEWING BOX COMPANY has inserted the Facebook “like” button in certain content on its website. The activation of this button means that, when the user accesses the website of THE SEWING BOX COMPANY, data such as IP address, browser settings or information relating to cookies and similar technologies used on this website are automatically transferred to Facebook.

According to the general interpretation on the “like” button issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union (Judgment of July 29, 2019, on case C-40/17), THE SEWING BOX COMPANY would be co-responsible with Facebook because it decides to include the “like” button on the website and facilitates the processing, even if THE SEWING BOX COMPANY does not have access to the personal data transmitted to Facebook. However, THE SEWING BOX COMPANY’s liability would be limited to the part of the processing in which it intervenes, i.e. the collection of data and their transmission to Facebook. For the purposes and further processing carried out by Facebook, only Facebook is responsible.


THE SEWING BOX COMPANY will process personal data obtained as a result of the use of this website for these purposes:

Likewise, users are interested in being able to contact the company by these means and it is within their reasonable expectations that such processing of contact data will be carried out.
