In an emergency, dial 110! The Facebook and Twitter pages are not constantly maintained and are not intended or suitable for messages, notices and advertisements!

Please note the following information before accessing our pages.

Netiquette

We ask everyone to remember that real people are communicating with each other here. To ensure a constructive exchange on our social media channels, the community agrees on the following common values and rules of conduct:

  • We respect our fellow human beings. We comment responsibly. We are constructive and polite.
  • We only comment on the current post topic.
  • Questions and ideas are welcome.
  • Differences of opinion are part of life. We argue on a factual level and don't get personal. We criticize opinions and actions, not people.
  • Before commenting/tweeting, we put ourselves in the other person's shoes. We check whether we would also say the sentence to a person's face in a conversation.
  • If we are provoked or treated unfairly, the above-mentioned contacts are the people to contact.
  • We stick to verifiable facts and are careful with assumptions, especially accusations.
  • We stand up for the Basic Law and an open, democratic society.
  • We express ourselves clearly and comprehensibly. Irony and sarcasm can easily be misunderstood if you cannot see/hear the other person.
  • We accept that "Du" has become the common form of address in the German-speaking network and do not get annoyed if we are not addressed as "Du".

The internet is not a legal vacuum!

We do not tolerate

  • insults, abusive language and degrading statements,
  • unlawful content, e.g. incitement or instruction to commit crimes; statements that are harmful to minors; statements that violate personal rights or content that violates the copyrights or data protection rights of third parties,
  • inflammatory, racist, obscene, discriminatory or pornographic content,
  • misleading claims and untrue statements of fact,
  • content that is linked to viruses, Trojans or harmful websites or is otherwise likely to impair the use of the site or the user's IT system,
  • Spam / copy&paste of your own comments,
  • contributions with personal data, commercial contributions and third-party advertising,
  • Links are generally not permitted and will be hidden or deleted by us. This is to prevent users from being redirected to fraudulent sites, e.g. through subsequent changes to stored websites.

As the police, we stand for law and order. You can and may expect the same from us on the Internet! In the case of comments that violate the law, we initiate appropriate proceedings, hide the comments and block the user. If you notice any possible legal violations on our pages, please inform us.

Users whose comments have been hidden or deleted or whose account has been blocked can informally enquire about the reason for the measure. To do so, please send an email to poststelle.euskirchen [at] polizei.nrw.de. In addition, the terms of use of the respective social network and our privacy policy apply.

We hope you enjoy the exchange of opinions!

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 "Like" information on our posts that are visible to others and the administrators of the fan page.

However, this information is neither analyzed by the administrators nor recorded elsewhere. The statistics that Facebook makes available to the administrators are displayed 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 carefully what information you publish!

What Facebook learns:
It is not known exactly what data Facebook stores in detail and how the company uses this data. 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 learns

  • 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 examine the preferences, inclinations and contacts of its users very precisely and beyond Facebook usage.

Important notice:

We expressly reserve the right to remove comments that violate applicable law or morality from this page 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.

Twitter privacy policy

However, this information is neither analyzed nor recorded elsewhere by the administrators of the police account. The statistics that 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.

    user logs into the network - including IP address, processor type and browser
