Your rights

You have the following rights with respect to us regarding your personal data:

  • Right to information,
  • Right to rectification or erasure,
  • Right to restriction of processing,
  • Right to object to processing,
  • Right to data portability.

You have also the right to lodge complain with a data protection supervisory authority against processing of your data by us.

Data processing performed by us

If you publish data related to our social media profiles on the respective social media platform (e.g. comments, public messages / postings, videos, images, likes), this data is published by the respective platform provider. We do not use this data for other purposes.
We may share your content published on the respective social media platform through our profile, insofar as this function is offered by the respective social media platform.
We reserve the right to delete content on our own social media profile to the extent that this is possible for us and is deemed necessary. The deletion of content published by you will be carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the respective social media platform.


We may communicate with you through the social media platform in order to respond to your inquiries. The personal data you provide within this inquiry will be stored by us to process your concern. Data collected in this context will be deleted as soon as its storage is not necessary any more or processing will be limited in case of legal storage obligations, insofar as deletion or restriction of processing is possible with the respective social media platform.

Legal basis

Data processing in connection with our social media appearances is carried out in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in public relations and communication.

Objection to the processing of your data performed by us

If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing. If you decide to object to the collection of your personal data, we kindly ask you to submit reasons why we are not allowed to process your personal data according to our procedures. In case of a reasonable objection, we will examine the situation and will either stop or adjust the processing of your personal data or demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for continuing the processing.

Data processing performed by the social media platforms

We have no influence on the type and scope of the data collected from you by the social media platforms, the way in which this data is processed and used by the social media platforms, or the transfer of this data by the social media platforms to third parties. We are not aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing or the storage periods. In particular, from experience, the platform providers store your data as user profiles and use it for interest-related advertising based on your user behavior as well as for the purposes of market research and the demand-oriented design of their platforms.
To the extent that we are able to do so, for example through making settings and configurations, we work towards a data protection-compliant and data-saving handling of your personal data by the respective social media platform. However, we have only extremely limited influence on the data processing by the platform providers.
For more detailed information on data processing by the social media platforms, in particular information on what data is processed and for what purposes, please refer to the privacy policies of the respective provider listed below:
