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

Social networks, such as Facebook, etc., can generally analyze your user behavior extensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (such as Like buttons or banner ads). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection relevant processing processes are triggered. In detail:

If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media presence, 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. With the help of 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 in and out of your social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or logged in.

Legal basis

 Our social media appearances are designed to ensure an informative presence on the internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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 (for example, consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Responsible and asserting rights

If you visit any of our social media sites (such as Facebook), we, together with the social media platform operator, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) both to us and to the operator of the respective social media portal (for example 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 the purpose for their storage is removed, you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

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