Data processing through social networks

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

Social networks such as Facebook, X, etc., can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:

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

Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which their preferences and interests are stored. This way, you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside your social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.

Please note that we cannot retrace all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, additional processing operations may be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the respective social media portals’ terms of use and privacy policy.

Legal basis

Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g., consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Responsibility and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can, in principle, protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability, and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g., Facebook).

Please note that despite sharing responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on their data processing operations. Our options are determined by the respective provider’s company policy.

Storage time

Data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage, or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions—in particular, retention periods—remain unaffected.

We have no control over the duration of the storage of your data stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details, please get in touch with the social network operators directly (e.g., in their privacy policy, see below).

Your rights

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data at any time and free of charge. You also have the right to object, the right to data portability, and the right to file a complaint with the responsible regulatory agency. Furthermore, you can request correction, blocking, deletion, and, under certain circumstances, restriction in processing your personal data.
