You also have the right to request that we restrict the data processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. You further have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority.

Please contact us at any time if you have any further questions about data protection.

Analytics and Third-Party Tools

Your browsing behavior may be statistically analyzed while visiting this website, which is mainly accomplished with analytical tools.

Detailed information about such analytics tools can be found in the privacy policy below.

Hosting

Hosting on Amazon Web Services (AWS)

We host our website by utilizing the "S3" and "CloudFront" services provided by AWS. The provider is Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL, 38 Avenue John F. Kennedy, 1855 Luxembourg (hereafter: AWS).

Your personal data will be processed on AWS servers when you visit our website. Thereby, personal data might also be transmitted to the parent company of AWS located in the United States. The data transmission to the U.S. is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. More details can be found at https://aws.amazon.com/en/blogs/security/aws-gdpr-data-processing-addendum/.

For more information, please visit AWS's privacy policy: https://aws.amazon.com/en/privacy/?nc1=f_pr.

The use of AWS is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in presenting our website in the most reliable way possible. Upon request of the corresponding consent, the processing will be based exclusively on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be withdrawn at any time.

General Notes and Mandatory Information

Data Protection

As the operator of this website, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Therefore, we treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

We collect various personal data when you use this website. Personal data refers to all data that can identify you personally. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose it is done.

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as in emails or over the Internet. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is impossible.

Data Controller

The responsible party (the data controller) for data processing on this website is:

FabForward Consultancy GbR – Thomas und Claudia Voss
Edithstrasse 5
16540 Hohen Neuendorf
Federal Republic of Germany

Telefon: +49 (0)3303 540 60 40
E-Mail:

A data controller is a natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purpose and means of personal data processing (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).

Storage Period

Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you submit a justified request for deletion or withdraw consent for data processing, your data will be deleted, provided no other legally required reasons exist for us to store your personal data (e.g., retention periods under tax or commercial law). In the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer prevail.

Notes on Data Transfer to the USA and Other Third Countries

We also use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries which are not considered secure from a data protection perspective. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. Please be advised that no comparable level of data protection to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, U.S. companies are obligated to release personal data to security authorities without you, the data subject, being able to take legal action against it. Consequently, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data located on U.S. servers for surveillance. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Withdrawal of Your Consent for Data Processing

Many processing operations are only carried out with your explicit consent. You can withdraw the consent you have previously given at any time. This revocation does not affect the legitimacy of the data processing that took place before your withdrawal.

Right to Object to the Collection of Data in Special Cases and Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT UNDER ART. 6(1) (E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME ON GROUNDS RELATING TO YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING, OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR CONDUCTING DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA FOR SUCH MARKETING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING, INSOFAR AS IT IS CONNECTED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. UPON YOUR OBJECTION, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION UNDER ART. 21(2) GDPR).

Right of Complaint with the Competent Supervisory Authority

In the event of a violation of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of their residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged violation. You have the right to complain in addition to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically upon your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request a direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You will recognize an encrypted connection when a lock symbol appears in your browser's address bar, and the address changes from "HTTP://" to "HTTPS://."

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

Access, Erasure, and Rectification

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free access to your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, and, if applicable, a right to rectification or erasure of this data. Please contact us at any time if you have any further questions about personal data.

Right to Restriction of Processing

You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. You may contact us at any time in this regard. The right to restrict processing applies in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify it. Therefore, for the duration of the review, you have the right to request that we restrict processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened or is happening unlawfully, you may request that we restrict data processing, instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have complained according to Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance between your and our interests needs to be made. Pending a finding as to whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data shall, apart from being stored, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or for protecting the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of substantial public interest of the European Union or a member state.

Objection to Advertising Emails

We object to the use of contact data published as part of the legal notice obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. If unsolicited advertising information, such as spam emails, is sent to us, the site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action.

Data Collection on This Website

Cookies

We use so-called "cookies" on our Internet pages. Cookies are small text files that cause no harm to your devices. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted once your visit ends. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.

In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your device when you visit our website (third-party cookies). In addition, they enable you or us to use certain services provided by a third-party company (e.g., cookies for processing payment services).

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., a shopping cart function or displaying videos). Other cookies are used to monitor user behavior or to display advertisements.

Cookies that are essential to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions desired by you (functional cookies, e.g., for a shopping cart function), or to optimize the website (e.g., cookies to measure the web audience) are stored based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis has been specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide website functionality that is error-free and optimized. Upon request of a corresponding consent, the storage of the cookies in question is based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). The consent can be withdrawn at any time.

You can configure your browser to notify you when cookies are set and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in general or in some instances, or activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the website's functionality can be limited.

If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis, we will inform you about this separately within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.

Server Log Files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in the so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These include:

  • Browser type and version
  • operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not merged with other data sources.

The collection of such data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in in providing a technically error-free display and optimization of this website. For this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

Contact Form

On our website, we use a Formoid contact form for inquiries. The provider is Mobirise, based in Eindhoven, 5657 DB, Netherlands.

Mobirise is committed to protect and respect personal data in accordance with the GDPR. Formoid by Mobirise uses cookies, which, for example, make it easier to re-enter data when you revisit the website. All template data will be transmitted SSL-encrypted (HTTPS protocol) to ensure that customer data are protected. Please consult the privacy policy of Mobirise at https://www.formoid.com/privacy.html for further details on their data processing.

When you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including your contact data provided there, will be stored by us to process the inquiry and follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of such data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or required for conducting pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) provided it has been requested.

We will store the data you entered in the contact form until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to keep it, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, shall remain unaffected.

Inquiry by Email, SMS, Telephone, or Fax

If you contact us by email, SMS, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all resulting personal data (names, questions), will be stored and processed by us to handle your request. Incoming emails are archived in an audit-proof manner on our local servers. We do not share these data without your consent.

The processing of such data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or required for conducting pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) provided it has been requested.

We will store the data you send to us via contact request until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to keep it, or until the purpose of storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, shall remain unaffected.

Dynamic Website Content using GeoIP

We use the open-source GeoIP solution GeoJS to dynamically adapt web content to the location of the respective visitor. For this purpose, the visitor's IP address is used to determine his or her continent location to overwrite default information on our website with regionally relevant data (e.g., regional hotline telephone number).

The use of GeoIP technology is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in presenting the user with the most relevant information for their respective geographical location.

For more information on GeoJS, please see the GeoJS privacy policy at: https://www.geojs.io/privacy/.

Communication via WhatsApp

For communication with our customers and other third parties, we also offer the instant messaging service WhatsApp. The provider is WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Communication occurs via end-to-end encryption (peer-to-peer), preventing WhatsApp or any other third party from gaining access to the communication content. However, WhatsApp gains access to metadata created during the communication process (e.g., sender, recipient, and time). We also expressly point out that WhatsApp, according to its own statement, shares personal data of its users with its parent company Facebook, which is based in the USA. Please consult the privacy policy of WhatsApp at https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/privacy-policy-eea?lang=en for more details on data processing.

WhatsApp is used based on our legitimate interest in providing quick and effective communication with customers, interested parties, and other business and contractual partners (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). Moreover, we solely use WhatsApp whenever the communication is or has been initiated by the customer (passive use for explicitly establishing business-related contact). Upon request of a corresponding consent, the data will be processed exclusively based on this consent, which can be withdrawn at any time effective for future processing.

We will store the data you sent to us via WhatsApp until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to keep it, or until the purpose of storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, shall remain unaffected.

We use the "WhatsApp Business" version of WhatsApp. We have further configured our WhatsApp accounts to not automatically synchronize data with the address book on the host devices.

The data transmission to the USA is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. More details can be found at https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/business-data-transfer-addendum?lang=en.

Analysis Tools and Advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses features of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Using Google Analytics, the website operator can analyze the behavior of visitors to the website. In doing so, the website operator obtains various usage data, such as page views, the duration of visit, operating systems used, and the visitor's location. Google may combine these data into a profile assigned to the respective users or their end device.

In addition, we may use Google Analytics to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Further, Google Analytics uses various modeling approaches to augment the data it collects and employs machine learning technologies in its data analysis.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable user recognition in order to analyze user behavior (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We use this analysis tool based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize its website and advertising. Upon request of a corresponding consent (e.g., consent to store cookies), the processing will be exclusively based on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The consent can be withdrawn at any time.

The data transmission to the USA is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. More details can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

IP Anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, Google will truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement before transferring it to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate how users use the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Browser-Plugin

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

For more information on how Google Analytics handles user data, please visit the privacy policy of Google at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Commissioned Data Processing

We have concluded a contract for commissioned data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic Characteristics

This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be generated containing statements about site visitors' age, gender, and interests. These data come from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. Such data cannot be attributed to an individual person. You can deactivate this feature at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item "Objection to data collection."

Remarketing

Our web pages use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This feature allows the ad target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked to the cross-device components of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g., cell phone) can also be displayed on a different end device (e.g., tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. This way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device you log in with your Google account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device ad advertising.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google Account. To do so, follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb.

The aggregation of the collected data on your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or withdraw at Google (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). In the case of data collection activities that are not merged into your Google account (e.g., because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the data collection is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The legitimate interest derives from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising.

For further details and the privacy policy, please review the privacy policy of Google at https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en.

Storage period

Data stored by Google at the user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g., User IDs), or advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising IDs) are anonymized or deleted after two (2) months. For more details, please visit the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en.

Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display advertisements in the Google Search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain keywords on Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted advertisements can be displayed (target group targeting) based on the user data available at Google (e.g., location data and interests). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively by analyzing, for example, which search terms led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements led to corresponding clicks.

The use of Google Ads is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing its service products as effectively as possible.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=en and here https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

Newsletter and Mailing

Postal Advertising

We may use your address in compliance with all legal provisions for sending postal advertising.

This is based on our legitimate interest in direct marketing, according to Art. 6(1)(f) in conjunction with Recital 47 GDPR. Upon request of a corresponding consent, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The consent can be withdrawn at any time. If necessary, a more specific regulation may be communicated to you as part of the data collection process and will take precedence over these regulations.

Your address will remain with us until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies. If you submit a justified request for deletion or withdraw consent to postal advertising, your data will be deleted, provided no other legally permissible reasons exist for us to store your personal data (e.g., retention periods under tax or commercial law). In the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

We will use standard postal service providers for shipping.

Plugins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

This site uses web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts.

When you call up a page, your browser loads the required fonts into its browser cache to display texts, fonts, and symbols correctly. For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that this website was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface used on our website. Upon request of a corresponding consent (e.g., consent to store cookies), the processing will be exclusively based on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The consent can be withdrawn at any time.

If your browser does not support web fonts, the default font is used by your computer.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, please visit https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and the privacy policy of Google at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

LinkedIn, Upwork, and Similar Providers

We do not integrate "Like" or "Follow" features from third-party providers such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Xing, Upwork, etc., but link to these providers throughout our pages. By using these links, you will leave our pages and visit the respective provider's website, whereby a connection to the provider's servers will be established (possibly beyond the European Economic Area). Personal data in connection with your account might be linked and disclosed to other users. We expressly point out that we, as the website operator, have no knowledge whatsoever of the content of the transmitted data or its storage and use by these third-party providers. For more information, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective provider.

For data protection on social media profiles of our company (such as LinkedIn), please refer to the respective section.

sevDesk

We have implemented the SaaS accounting software sevDesk. Provider is sevDesk GmbH, Hauptstrasse 115, 77652 Offenburg, Germany.

sevDesk is an accounting software in which personal data of business partners are stored in the course of quotation, order, and payment processing and archived according to legal retention periods. There is no direct interface between our website and sevDesk. 

The use of sevDesk is based on Art. 6(1)(b) and Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in fast and uncomplicated order processing, administration, and documentation. 

For more information, please read the privacy policy of sevDesk at https://sevdesk.com/privacy-policy/.

We have concluded an order processing contract with sevDesk.

elfsight

Our website uses the all-in-one plugin of Elfsight's service to aggregate and display customer reviews freely available on the Internet. The provider is Elfsight LLC, Lunacharskogo, 1 304b, Tula, Tula, 300002, Russia.

When you visit one of our pages containing an Elfsight plugin, a connection is established to Elfsight's servers. This tells the Elfsight server which of our pages you have visited and transmits your IP address. The information collected by Elfsight is sent to the Vimeo server in Russia. 

The use is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in self-promotion based on customer feedback (social proof) to acquire new customers.

More information about the handling of user data can be found in the privacy policy of Elfsight at https://elfsight.com/privacy-policy/.

Consentmanager

This website uses a cookie consent banner with technology from consentmanager GmbH, Eppendorfer Weg 183, 20253 Hamburg, Germany (hereafter: consentmanager) to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications requiring consent.

By integrating the corresponding JavaScript code, users are shown a banner when they access the website. They can give their consent to certain cookies or cookie-based applications by ticking the corresponding checkboxes. During this process, the banner blocks the setting of all cookies requiring consent until the respective user gives the related consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that relevant cookies are stored on the user's end device only if the user has given his or her consent. For the cookie consent banner to be able to assign page views to individual users and record, log, and store the consent settings made by individual users during a session, certain user information (including the IP address) is collected by the cookie consent banner when our website is called up, transmitted to Consentmanager's servers, and stored there.

This data processing is carried out under Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific, and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website. Furthermore, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR constitutes the legal basis for the data processing described above. As a data controller, we are under a legal obligation to make technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user's consent.

We have entered into an order processing agreement with Consentmanager, where applicable. We oblige Consentmanager to protect the data of visitors to our website and not pass it on to third parties. For more information about Consentmanager's use of data, please review their privacy policy at https://www.consentmanager.net/datenschutz/.


Our Social Media Presence

Data Processing Through Social Networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks used by us in detail can be found below.

Social networks such as LinkedIn, Twitter, etc., may analyze your user behavior extensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., like buttons or advertising banners). Therefore, visiting our social media sites triggers numerous processing operations relevant to data protection. In particular:

If you are logged into 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. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portals. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are 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 your preferences and interests are stored. This way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices you are on or were logged into.

Furthermore, please note that we cannot track all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and privacy policies of the respective social media portals.

Legal Basis

Our social media presence is designed to ensure the broadest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which the operators of the social networks must specify (e.g., consent within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR).

Responsible Person and Assertion of Rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., LinkedIn), we are jointly responsible with the social media platform operator for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability, and complaint) both regarding us and the operator of the respective social media portals (e.g., LinkedIn).

Please note that despite a joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Therefore, our options are primarily determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage Period

Any data collected directly by us over the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to store it, or the purpose of storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies will remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, shall remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which the operators of the social network store for their purposes. For more details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g., in their privacy policy given below).

Social Networks in Detail: LinkedIn

We have a profile on LinkedIn. The provider is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. LinkedIn uses advertising cookies.

If you wish to disable LinkedIn advertising cookies, please use the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

Data transmission to the USA is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/dpa and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/eu-sccs.

For more details on how they handle your personal data, please refer to the privacy policy of LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
