We maintain an online presence on social networks and platforms to communicate and provide information about our services to those customers, interested parties, partners, and users who are active there.
The processing of users' personal data is performed based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing and communicating with our users in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. In the event that the respective platform providers ask users for their consent to the aforementioned data processing, Articles 6(1)(a) and 7 of the GDPR provide legal basis.
As the creators of the online presence, please note that we do not make any decisions regarding the processing of user data and all other information pursuant to Article 13 GDPR, including the legal basis, identity of the responsible party, and storage period of cookies placed on user terminals. These are set by providers independently.
Please note that the user’s data may be processed outside of the European Union. This may entail risks for users, e.g., by making it more difficult to enforce users' rights. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield framework, note they are thereby obligated to comply with EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, user data is, as a rule, processed for the purposes of market research and advertising. For example, based on user behavior, the resulting information on interests may be used to create user profiles. User profiles can then be used, for example, to insert advertising inside and outside platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies storing the usage behavior and interests of the user are cached on the user’s computer. Furthermore, data can also be stored in user profiles independent of the devices employed by the users (particularly if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged into them).
For a detailed description of the processing and opt-out options of respective platforms, we refer you to the linked information on providers listed below.
For cases of requests for information and the assertion of rights of persons affected, we advise you that these can be pursued in the most effective way directly with the providers. Providers are the only ones who have access to user data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. That recommendation notwithstanding, however, please be advised that persons affected can assert their rights against any individual responsible, i.e., against any party.
