Our Social Media Presence

Data processing through social networks:

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks we use can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn etc. can usually comprehensively analyse your user behaviour when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. Like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media sites triggers numerous processing processes relevant to data protection. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can link this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

Using the data collected in this way, operators of social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-related advertising can be displayed inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the relevant social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing on social media portals. Depending on the provider, operators of social media portals may be able to carry out further processing operations. Details can be found in the terms of use and the data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.

Legal Framework:

Our social media presence is designed to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest in line with Art 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which must be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR).

Responsible Person and Assertion of Rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing triggered during this visit. You can exercise your rights (right to be informed, right to rectification, right to erasure, right to restrict processing, right to data portability and right to object) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).

Please note that despite our joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our services depend to a large extent on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence is deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for its storage no longer applies, you request us to delete it, you revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
