§ 6 Online Presence in Social Media
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the area of the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they thereby undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
Farthermore, user data is generally processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the user profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of the users and communication with the users in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. In case the users are asked by the respective providers to give their consent to the data processing (i.e. to give their consent e.g. by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 par. 1 letter a., Art. 7 DSGVO.
For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information from the providers.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless need help, please contact us.
