Online presence in social media
We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.
In doing so we point out that the data of the users can be processed outside the area of the European Union. This may result in risks for the users because e.g. enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US
providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn
be used to e.g. place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the
interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data independent of the device used by the users can be saved in the usage profiles (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged into them).
The processing of the personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests of users’ effective information and communication with users according to GDPR Article 6 (1) (f). If the users are asked for a consent to the data
processing by the respective providers (that is, they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is GDPr Article 6 (1) (a), Article 7.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we also point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take
appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
