Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

Our Social-Media-Sites
Data processing from the social networks

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

Social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., can typically analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (such as Like buttons or banner ads). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal may associate this visit with 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.

With the help of 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 in and out of your social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or logged in.

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

Legal basis

Our social media appearances are designed to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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 (for example, consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Responsible and rights

When you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we share responsibility for the data processing operations triggered during this visit with the social media platform operator. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-a-vis both. Us as well and to the operator of the respective social media portal (for example, compared to Facebook).

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

Storage Duration

The data we collect directly through the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose of their storage is removed, you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to storage or the purpose of the data storage is dropped. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no control over the retention period of your data, which is stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details, please contact the social network operators directly (for example, in their privacy policy, see below).

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we 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.
