10. General information on our presence in social networks
In order to be able to present our company in the best possible way and to communicate with you as a user, customer or interested party and to inform you about the services we offer, we make use of our presence in social networks.
You can find us on the following platforms or social networks:
The use of social networks involves the processing of data outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). An equivalent level of data protection as exists in the EU cannot be guaranteed in all countries outside the EU. In this context, it may lead to risks for you as a user if the transferred data is processed in so-called third countries with a non-adequate level of data protection. This makes it more difficult to enforce known user rights. In addition, it may happen that your data is not processed in your interest by the provider in the third country.
Facebook Inc., based in the USA, as well as associated services (Instagram, etc.) had the “Privacy Shield” certification for the US-European Data Protection Convention. Due to the current decision of the ECJ, the agreement no longer provides sufficient proof of compliance with the level of protection required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Due to the current legally uncertain situation, we would like to point out that we provide the use of Facebook services and the provision of content on social media platforms on the basis of your “implied” consent given to us (Art. 6 para 1a) DSGVO). By visiting the pages, as well as consenting to the cookies set, you consent to the processing of your personal data and the transfer of these.
The processing purposes pursued by the social networks usually differ from ours. Thus, it usually happens that the data collected from you in social networks are processed for purposes of market research, advertising, and creation of user profiles for personalized advertising (e.g., Instagram).
To realize this, cookies are used, which record user behavior and enable profiling of the user. A concrete list of the purposes for which user data is processed can be found in the data protection notices of the respective providers. By making the appropriate settings in your user account, you can limit the profiling, at least to a certain extent. For the exact procedure, please read the corresponding data protection information of the respective provider.
