D. Processing of personal data by us

Submitted data such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages that you leave on our social media channels may be published by the social media platforms. These will only be used or processed by us for the following purposes.

Personal data transmitted to us via social media, such as documents or communication data, will not be published by us, but it cannot be ruled out that the social media operator will process or publish this data.

We would like to point out that we do not wish to receive applications via messengers, such as Facebook Messenger, as these cannot guarantee the protection of your personal data to the extent that is necessary and pursued on our part.

We also reserve the right to delete content should this be necessary. Where applicable, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and permissible and communicate with you via the social media platform.

The legal basis for our data processing within the framework of the social media channels is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations work and upholding modern ways of communication.

Some of the social media companies are located in the USA and other countries outside the EU and the EEA. The personal data may therefore also be processed by the provider of the respective platform in countries outside the EU. Please note that companies in these countries may be subject to data protection laws that do not offer the same level of protection for your personal data as is the case in the member states of the EU and provided by the GDPR.

We would also like to point out that we have no influence on the scope, type, and purpose of the data processing by the provider of the social media platform. For more information about the processing of your data by the social media providers, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective platform provider.

 

E. Processing of personal data by the social media providers

On our social media websites, you will find links to other company websites on social media platforms. You can recognise links to the websites of the social media services by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach our corporate presence on the respective social media platform. When you click on a link to such a platform, a connection to the platform's servers is established. This transmits to the servers of the platform that you have visited our website.

In addition, further data is transferred to the platform provider. This may include the following data:

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located.
  • Time and date the website was accessed, or the link was activated
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

Please note the fact that the social media provider stores the data (e.g., IP address, preferences and personal interests, behaviour on the platform, any personal information stored on the platform, etc.) of users and uses it for business purposes.

We would like to point out that the respective provider of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. We would also like to point out that web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in and/or registered with the social media platform. It is not possible for us to influence the web tracking methods of the platforms. If, for example, you would like to switch off the web tracking, you must arrange this on the respective website of the provider.

If you are registered to the social media channels and are logged into your private account, the social media provider can associate your visit to our page with your very account. If you want to prevent the provider from linking data about your visit to our fan page with your membership data stored with the platform, you must

  • log out of the social media platform before each visit to our fan page,
  • delete the cookies stored on your device
  • and close and restart your browser.

In this way, according to the social media providers, all information by which you can be identified by Facebook is deleted.

It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your data to create a profile of you and thus generates personalised advertising for you.

For more information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and further objection possibilities, you can view the data protection declarations of the respective operators here:

In cases where we are jointly responsible for processing with the provider, you can find the main content of the joint processing of your data here:

 

F. Facebook Insights

Via the so-called "Insights" of the Facebook page, statistical data of different categories are available to us. These statistics are generated and provided by Facebook. As the operator of the site, we have no influence on the generation and presentation of these statistics. We cannot disable this function or prevent the generation and processing of the data.

For a selectable period of time and for the categories fans, subscribers, reached and interacting persons, the following data is provided to us by Facebook in relation to our Facebook page:

Total number of page views, “likes”, page activity, post interactions, reach, video views, post reach, comments, shared content, replies, proportion of men and women, origin in terms of country and city, language, shop views and clicks, clicks on route planners, clicks on telephone numbers. Data on the Facebook groups linked to our Facebook page are also provided in this way.

Due to the constant development of Facebook, the availability and processing of the data changes, so that we refer to the aforementioned Facebook privacy policy for further details.

We use this data, which is available in aggregated form, to make our posts and activities on our Facebook page more attractive to users. In this context, we receive anonymised data on the users of our Facebook fan page. It is not possible for us to draw any conclusions about your person as a result. For example, we use the distribution according to age and gender for an adapted address and the preferred visiting times of the users for a time-optimised planning of our posts. Information about the type of end devices used by visitors helps us to adapt the visual design of the posts accordingly. In accordance with the Facebook terms of use, which each user has agreed to as part of creating a Facebook profile, we can identify the subscribers and fans of the page and view their profiles and other shared information from them.
