7 Social media

We would like to get in contact with you and other parties, customers and users. For this we use different social networks. Which individual social networks we use can be found in these legal notes. However, we would like to point out that we have no influence on which data is collected. As a rule, however, this is data that is used for market research and advertising purposes. This is usually done by creating user profiles and the interests identified from them. This makes it possible to display customized advertising. For this reason, the use of social networks may also set cookies for you.

Furthermore, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union and that you therefore run the risk of not being able to enforce your rights properly. With regard to providers based in the United States, however, we would like to point out that an EU-US Privacy Shield exists, which guarantees an equivalent level of data protection as in the European Union. Basically, we would like to provide you with information in the easiest and fastest way possible or give you the opportunity to share such information. Therefore, unless you have consented to data processing on the respective platform, the legal basis is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. If you have consented on the respective platform, your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing until revocation remains unaffected.
