2. Hos­ting

Exter­nal Hos­ting

This web­site is hos­ted by an exter­nal ser­vice pro­vi­der (host). Per­so­nal data collec­ted on this web­site are stored on the ser­vers of the host. These may include, but are not limi­ted to, IP addres­ses, con­tact requests, meta­data and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, con­tract infor­ma­tion, con­tact infor­ma­tion, names, web page access, and other data gene­ra­ted through a web site.

The host is used for the pur­pose of ful­fil­ling the con­tract with our poten­tial and exis­ting cus­to­mers (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR) and in the inte­rest of secure, fast, and effi­ci­ent pro­vi­sion of our online ser­vices by a pro­fes­sio­nal pro­vi­der (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). If appro­priate con­sent has been obtai­ned, the pro­ces­sing is car­ried out exclu­si­vely on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, inso­far the con­sent inclu­des the sto­rage of coo­kies or the access to infor­ma­tion in the user’s end device (e.g., device fin­ger­prin­ting) wit­hin the mea­ning of the TTDSG. This con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

Our host will only pro­cess your data to the extent necessary to ful­fil its per­for­mance obli­ga­ti­ons and to fol­low our inst­ruc­tions with respect to such data.

Data pro­ces­sing

We have con­clu­ded a data pro­ces­sing agree­ment (DPA) with the above-​mentioned pro­vi­der. This is a con­tract man­da­ted by data pri­vacy laws that gua­ran­tees that they pro­cess per­so­nal data of our web­site visi­tors only based on our inst­ruc­tions and in com­pli­ance with the GDPR.

3. Gene­ral infor­ma­tion and man­da­tory infor­ma­tion

Data pro­tec­tion

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion and in com­pli­ance with the sta­tu­tory data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion.

Whenever you use this web­site, a variety of per­so­nal infor­ma­tion will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nally iden­tify you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­ma­tion is collec­ted.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­sion of data via the Inter­net (i.e., through e-​mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to secu­rity gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­tely pro­tect data against third-​party access.

Infor­ma­tion about the respon­si­ble party (refer­red to as the “con­trol­ler” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this web­site is:

Nicole Ries­kamp
Kul­tur­spa­zier­gänge Berg­straße
Jugenhei­mer Straße 29
64665 Alsbach-​Hähnlein

Phone: 0157 33796863
E-​mail: info@kulturspaziergaenge-bergstrasse.de

The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral per­son or legal entity that single-​handedly or jointly with others makes decisi­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g., names, e-​mail addres­ses, etc.).

Sto­rage dura­tion

Unless a more spe­ci­fic sto­rage period has been spe­ci­fied in this pri­vacy policy, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­pose for which it was collec­ted no lon­ger app­lies. If you assert a jus­ti­fied request for dele­tion or revoke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted, unless we have other legally per­mis­si­ble rea­sons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g., tax or com­mer­cial law reten­tion peri­ods); in the lat­ter case, the dele­tion will take place after these rea­sons cease to apply.

Gene­ral infor­ma­tion on the legal basis for the data pro­ces­sing on this web­site

If you have con­sen­ted to data pro­ces­sing, we pro­cess your per­so­nal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2)(a) GDPR, if spe­cial cate­go­ries of data are pro­ces­sed accord­ing to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. In the case of expli­cit con­sent to the trans­fer of per­so­nal data to third coun­tries, the data pro­ces­sing is also based on Art. 49 (1)(a) GDPR. If you have con­sen­ted to the sto­rage of coo­kies or to the access to infor­ma­tion in your end device (e.g., via device fin­ger­prin­ting), the data pro­ces­sing is addi­tio­nally based on § 25 (1) TTDSG. The con­sent can be revo­ked at any time. If your data is requi­red for the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or for the imple­men­ta­tion of pre-​contractual mea­su­res, we pro­cess your data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Fur­ther­more, if your data is requi­red for the ful­fill­ment of a legal obli­ga­tion, we pro­cess it on the basis of Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR. Fur­ther­more, the data pro­ces­sing may be car­ried out on the basis of our legi­ti­mate inte­rest accord­ing to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Infor­ma­tion on the rele­vant legal basis in each indi­vi­dual case is pro­vi­ded in the fol­lowing para­graphs of this pri­vacy policy.

Infor­ma­tion on data trans­fer to the USA and other non-​EU coun­tries

Among other things, we use tools of com­pa­nies domic­i­led in the United Sta­tes or other from a data pro­tec­tion per­spec­tive non-​secure non-​EU coun­tries. If these tools are active, your per­so­nal data may poten­ti­ally be trans­fer­red to these non-​EU coun­tries and may be pro­ces­sed there. We must point out that in these coun­tries, a data pro­tec­tion level that is com­pa­ra­ble to that in the EU can­not be gua­ran­teed. For instance, U.S. enter­pri­ses are under a man­date to release per­so­nal data to the secu­rity agen­cies and you as the data sub­ject do not have any liti­ga­tion opti­ons to defend yourself in court. Hence, it can­not be ruled out that U.S. agen­cies (e.g., the Secret Ser­vice) may pro­cess, ana­lyze, and per­ma­nently archive your per­so­nal data for sur­veil­lance pur­po­ses. We have no con­trol over these pro­ces­sing acti­vi­ties.

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. 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(1)(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(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) 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.

Infor­ma­tion about, rec­ti­fi­ca­tion and era­di­ca­tion of data

Wit­hin the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tu­tory pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, please do not hesi­tate to con­tact us at any time.

Right to demand pro­ces­sing restric­tions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time. The right to demand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing app­lies in the fol­lowing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/​is con­duc­ted in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the era­di­ca­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any lon­ger and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­t­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of its era­di­ca­tion.
  • If you have rai­sed an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned whose inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­t­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal enti­ties or for important public inte­rest rea­sons cited by the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

SSL and/​or TLS encryp­tion

For secu­rity rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as purchase orders or inqui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gram. You can reco­gnize an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­va­ted, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Rejec­tion of unso­li­ci­ted e-​mails

We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion publis­hed in con­junc­tion with the man­da­tory infor­ma­tion to be pro­vi­ded in our Site Notice to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­tion mate­rial that we have not expressly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­tion, for instance via SPAM messages.

4. Record­ing of data on this web­site

Coo­kies

Our web­sites and pages use what the indus­try refers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small text files that do not cause any damage to your device. They are eit­her stored tem­pora­rily for the dura­tion of a ses­sion (ses­sion coo­kies) or they are per­ma­nently archi­ved on your device (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­sion coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cally dele­ted once you ter­mi­nate your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain archi­ved on your device until you actively delete them, or they are auto­ma­ti­cally era­di­ca­ted by your web brow­ser.

In some cases, it is pos­si­ble that third-​party coo­kies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third-​party coo­kies). These coo­kies enable you or us to take advan­tage of cer­tain ser­vices offe­red by the third party (e.g., coo­kies for the pro­ces­sing of pay­ment ser­vices).

Coo­kies have a variety of func­tions. Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cally essen­tial since cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the absence of the coo­kies (e.g., the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of videos). The pur­pose of other coo­kies may be the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tio­nal messages.

Coo­kies, which are requi­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­tion tran­sac­tions, or for the pro­vi­sion of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g., for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or those that are necessary for the opti­miz­a­tion (requi­red coo­kies) of the web­site (e.g., coo­kies that pro­vide mea­sura­ble insights into the web audi­ence), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless a dif­fe­rent legal basis is cited. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the sto­rage of requi­red coo­kies to ensure the tech­ni­cally error free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­rage of the coo­kies and simi­lar reco­gni­tion tech­no­lo­gies has been reques­ted, pro­ces­sing occurs exclu­si­vely on the basis of the con­sent obtai­ned (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG); this con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

You have the option to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the accep­t­ance of coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases. You may also exclude the accep­t­ance of coo­kies in cer­tain cases or in gene­ral or acti­vate the delete func­tion for the auto­ma­tic era­di­ca­tion of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

In the event that third-​party coo­kies are used or if coo­kies are used for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses, we will sepa­r­ately notify you in con­junc­tion with this Data Pro­tec­tion Policy and, if app­li­ca­ble, ask for your con­sent.

At the end of this pri­vacy policy, you will find fur­ther detailed infor­ma­tion on the coo­kies used on this web­site wit­hin the sec­tion „Addi­tio­nal infor­ma­tion on coo­kies“.

Con­sent with Borlabs Coo­kie

Our web­site uses the Borlabs con­sent tech­no­logy to obtain your con­sent to the sto­rage of cer­tain coo­kies in your brow­ser or for the use of cer­tain tech­no­lo­gies and for their data pri­vacy pro­tec­tion com­pli­ant docu­men­ta­tion. The pro­vi­der of this tech­no­logy is Borlabs GmbH, Rüben­kamp 32, 22305 Ham­burg, Ger­many (her­ein­af­ter refer­red to as Borlabs).

Whenever you visit our web­site, a Borlabs coo­kie will be stored in your brow­ser, which archi­ves any decla­ra­ti­ons or revo­ca­ti­ons of con­sent you have ent­e­red. These data are not shared with the pro­vi­der of the Borlabs tech­no­logy.

The recor­ded data shall remain archi­ved until you ask us to era­di­cate them, delete the Borlabs coo­kie on your own or the pur­pose of sto­ring the data no lon­ger exists. This shall be without pre­ju­dice to any reten­tion obli­ga­ti­ons man­da­ted by law. To review the details of Borlabs’ data pro­ces­sing poli­cies, please visit https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/

We use the Borlabs coo­kie con­sent tech­no­logy to obtain the decla­ra­ti­ons of con­sent man­da­ted by law for the use of coo­kies. The legal basis for the use of such coo­kies is Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

At the end of this pri­vacy policy, you will find fur­ther detailed infor­ma­tion on the coo­kies used on this web­site wit­hin the sec­tion „Addi­tio­nal infor­ma­tion on coo­kies“. There you can modify your coo­kie set­tings for this web­site at any time.

Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pages auto­ma­ti­cally collects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-​called ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cally. The infor­ma­tion com­pri­ses:

  • The type and ver­sion of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver inquiry

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the tech­ni­cally error free depic­tion and the opti­miz­a­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, ser­ver log files must be recor­ded.

Con­tact form

If you sub­mit inqui­ries to us via our con­tact form, the infor­ma­tion pro­vi­ded in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vi­ded the­r­ein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this infor­ma­tion without your con­sent.

The pro­ces­sing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is rela­ted to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-​contractual mea­su­res. In all other cases the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the effec­tive pro­ces­sing of the requests addres­sed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been reques­ted; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

The infor­ma­tion you have ent­e­red into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to era­di­cate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archi­ving of data or if the pur­pose for which the infor­ma­tion is being archi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g., after we have con­clu­ded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without pre­ju­dice to any man­da­tory legal pro­vi­si­ons, in par­ti­cu­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e-​mail, tele­phone, or fax

If you con­tact us by e-​mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, inclu­ding all resul­ting per­so­nal data (name, request) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­pose of pro­ces­sing your request. We do not pass these data on without your con­sent.

These data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is rela­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is requi­red for the per­for­mance of pre-​contractual mea­su­res. In all other cases, the data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of our legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the effec­tive hand­ling of inqui­ries sub­mit­ted to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if it has been obtai­ned; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­pose for the data sto­rage lap­ses (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request).

Google Ana­ly­tics enab­les the web­site ope­ra­tor to ana­lyze the beha­vior pat­terns of web­site visi­tors. To that end, the web­site ope­ra­tor recei­ves a variety of user data, such as pages acces­sed, time spent on the page, the uti­li­zed ope­ra­ting sys­tem and the user’s ori­gin. This data is assi­gned to the respec­tive end device of the user. An assign­ment to a user-​ID does not take place.

Fur­ther­more, Google Ana­ly­tics allows us to record your mouse and scroll move­ments and clicks, among other things. Google Ana­ly­tics uses various mode­ling approa­ches to aug­ment the collec­ted data sets and uses machine lear­ning tech­no­lo­gies in data ana­ly­sis.

Google Ana­ly­tics uses tech­no­lo­gies that make the reco­gni­tion of the user for the pur­pose of ana­ly­zing the user beha­vior pat­terns (e.g., coo­kies or device fin­ger­prin­ting). The web­site use infor­ma­tion recor­ded by Google is, as a rule trans­fer­red to a Google ser­ver in the United Sta­tes, where it is stored.

The use of these ser­vices occurs on the basis of your con­sent pur­suant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG. You may revoke your con­sent at any time. Wit­hin the sec­tion „Your coo­kie set­tings“ you can find your con­sent history for Google Ana­ly­tics and can change your coo­kie set­tings or revoke your con­sent at any time by cli­cking on the but­ton „Coo­kie set­tings“.

Pri­vacy Policy for our social media appearan­ces

Data pro­ces­sing through social net­works

We main­tain publicly avail­able pro­files in social net­works. The indi­vi­dual social net­works we use can be found below.

Social net­works such as Face­book, Twit­ter etc. can gene­rally ana­lyze your user beha­vior com­pre­hen­si­vely if you visit their web­site or a web­site with inte­gra­ted social media con­tent (e.g., like but­tons or ban­ner ads). When you visit our social media pages, nume­rous data protection-​relevant pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are trig­ge­red. In detail:

If you are log­ged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the ope­ra­tor of the social media por­tal can assign this visit to 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.

Using 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 inside and out­side of your social media pre­sence. If you have an account with the social net­work, interest-​based adver­ti­sing can be dis­played on any device you are log­ged in to or have log­ged in to.

Please also note that we can­not retrace all pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons 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 should ensure the widest pos­si­ble pre­sence on the Inter­net. This is a legi­ti­mate inte­rest wit­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. 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 (e.g., con­sent wit­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Respon­si­bi­lity and asser­tion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Face­book), we, tog­e­ther with the ope­ra­tor of the social media plat­form, are respon­si­ble for the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons trig­ge­red during this visit. You can in principle pro­tect your rights (infor­ma­tion, cor­rec­tion, dele­tion, limi­ta­tion of pro­ces­sing, data por­ta­bi­lity and com­p­laint) vis-​à-​vis us as well as vis-​à-​vis the ope­ra­tor of the respec­tive social media por­tal (e.g., 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 time

The data collec­ted directly from us via the social media pre­sence will be dele­ted from our sys­tems as soon as you ask us to delete it, you revoke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­pose for the data sto­rage lap­ses. Stored coo­kies remain on your device until you delete them. Man­da­tory sta­tu­tory pro­vi­si­ons - in par­ti­cu­lar, reten­tion peri­ods - remain unaf­fec­ted.

We have no con­trol over the sto­rage dura­tion of your data that are stored by the social net­work ope­ra­tors for their own pur­po­ses. For details, please con­tact the social net­work ope­ra­tors directly (e.g., in their pri­vacy policy, see below).
