Our employees and subcontractors working for us are bound to confidentiality and/or the valid data protection laws.

4. Online presences in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms to inform customers, interested parties and users active there about our services. We would like to point out that data of users may be processed outside the area of the European Union. This may result in risks for the users, e.g. because the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers operating under the Privacy-Shield, we would like to point out that they are commited to comply with EU data protection standards. Furthermore, user data are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies which contain information about the user's usage behavior and interests are usually stored on the user's computer. Furthermore, data can also be stored in profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these). The processing of users' personal data is carried out based on our legitimate interests in effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button declaration), the legal basis of processing is Art. 6 (1) point a, Art. 7 GDPR. For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked 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.
