9. Our social media presence
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on a number of social networks. For information on which social networks we use, please see below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can analyse your user behaviour if you visit their websites or a website with integrated social media content (such as “like” buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media sites will trigger a number of actions which may be relevant to data privacy. They include:
If you have logged into your social medial account and visit our social media site, the operator of the social media portal may assign that visit to your user account. Your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or have no account with the relevant social media portal. Such data may be captured e.g. via cookies which are stored on your device or by capturing your IP address.
Data captured in this way may be used by operators of social media portals to create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are recorded. This way, interest-based advertising may be displayed in and outside of the relevant social media platform. If you have an account with a social media platform, interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you have logged in or were logged in.
Our social media sites are intended to warrant as comprehensive a presence on the internet as possible. This is a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Analytical processes initiated by social networks may be based on divergent legal provisions, which must be specified by the operators of that social network (e.g. consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).
Responsibility and enforcement of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. on Facebook), we, together with the operator of that social media platform, are responsible for any data processing operations triggered by that visit. You may enforce your rights (access, rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaints) in principle against us as well as against the operator of the social media portal (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite our joint responsibility together with the social media portal operators, we are unable to influence to the full extent the data processing operations of such social media portals. Our possibilities are limited by the relevant provider’s company policy.
Any data captured by us directly through a social media site will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage has been fulfilled, you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to our storing of your data, or the purpose of the data storage ceases to be relevant. Stored cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions – storage periods in particular – remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the length of time that your data is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of such social networks directly (e.g. via their privacy statement, see below).
We have a Facebook profile. Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, is the operator of that site. Facebook is certified in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield.
You may adapt your advertising preferences in your user account. Please click on the following link and log in: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
10. Right of Objection
In case your personal data is processed, based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to enter an objection against the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, so far as there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without specifying any particular situation.
If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
11. Data Security
We use the widespread SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method within the visit of the website, in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This is usually 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is encrypted is shown by the closed representation of the key or lock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
