What is it all about?

This privacy statement meets the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information where we cannot establish a connection to your person, e.g. through anonymisation, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

 

Stored personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate reasons for further storage of the data. We will inform you in the individual processing operations about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage. Irrespective of this, we will store your personal data in individual cases to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and in the event of statutory storage obligations.

 

Who gets my data?

We only pass on your personal data, which we process on our website, to third parties if this is necessary to fulfil the specified purposes and if this is covered by the legal basis (e.g. consent or protection of legitimate interests) in individual cases. In addition, in individual cases, we will pass on personal data to third parties if this serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. Possible recipients could then be, for example, law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

 

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data in accordance with Article 28 GDPR within the scope of order processing on our behalf, these service providers may be recipients of your personal data. For more information on the use of processors and web services, please refer to the overview of the individual processing operations.

In the following, we inform you about which data we or the respective social network process from you when you access and use our fan pages/accounts.

 

Data we process from you

If you wish to contact us via messenger or direct message via the respective social network, we generally process your user name via which you contact us and, if applicable, store further data provided by you insofar as this is necessary to process/respond to your request.

 

The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller).

 

We receive automated statistics regarding our accounts via Insights functionalities. The statistics include, among other things, the total number of page views, likes, details of page activities and post interactions, reach, video views and details of the proportion of men/women among our fans/followers.

 

The statistics only contain aggregated data that cannot be related to individual persons. They are not identifiable to us through this.

 

What data the social networks process from you

In order to view the content of our fan pages or accounts, you do not have to be a member of the respective social network and, in this respect, no user account is required for the respective social network.

 

Please note, however, that the social networks also collect and store data from website visitors without a user account when the respective social network is accessed (e.g. technical data in order to be able to display the website to you) and use cookies and similar technologies, over which we have no control. For details, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social network (see the corresponding links above).

 

Insofar as you wish to interact with the content on our fan pages/accounts, e.g. comment on, share or like our postings/contributions and/or contact us via messenger functions, prior registration with the respective social network and the provision of personal data is required.

 

We have no influence on data processing by the social networks within the scope of their use by you. To our knowledge, your data is stored and processed in particular in connection with the provision of the services of the respective social network, as well as for the analysis of user behaviour (using cookies, pixels/web beacons and similar technologies) on the basis of which advertising based on your interests is displayed both within and outside the respective social network. It cannot be ruled out that your data will be stored by the social networks outside the EU/EEA and passed on to third parties.

 

Information on, among other things, the exact scope and purposes of the processing of your personal data, the storage period/deletion as well as guidelines on the use of cookies and similar technologies in the context of registration and use of the social networks can be found in the privacy policy/cookie policy of the social networks. There you will also find information about your rights and options to object.

 

Facebook page

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more information on this at the following link: https://facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

 

By means of the statistical information transmitted, it is not possible for us to identify individual users. We only use this information to respond to the interests of our users and to continuously improve and ensure the quality of our online presence.

 

We only collect your data via our fan page in order to realise possible communication and interaction with us. This collection usually includes your name, message content, comment content and the profile information you provide "publicly".

 

The processing of your personal data for our above-mentioned purposes is based on our legitimate business and communicative interest in offering an information and communication channel pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. If you, as a user, have given your consent to the data processing vis-à-vis the respective provider of the social network, the legal basis of the processing extends to Article 6(1)(a), Article 7 GDPR.

 

Due to the fact that the actual data processing is carried out by the provider of the social network, our access to your data is limited. Only the provider of the social network is authorised to have full access to your data. Due to this, only the provider can directly take and implement appropriate measures to fulfil your user rights (information request, deletion request, objection, etc.). The most effective way of asserting such rights is therefore directly with the respective provider.

 

We are jointly responsible with Facebook for the personal content of the fan page. Data subject rights can be asserted with Facebook Ireland as well as with us.

 

The primary responsibility for the processing of Insights data lies with Facebook under GDPR and Facebook complies with all obligations under GDPR in relation to the processing of Insights data, Facebook Ireland provides the essence of the Page Insights Supplement to data subjects.

 

We do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and all other information resulting from Article 13 GDPR, including legal basis, identity of the controller and storage period of cookies on user terminals.

Each of these data transmissions triggers a cookie request to the browser of the data subject. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie in your browser.

 

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to process the technical procedure. The cookie ID is needed, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, if a DoubleClick ad was previously displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same internet browser.

Furthermore, the cookie serves to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement. Each time you access one of the individual pages of our website on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, your browser is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data.
