Our social media presence
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Instagram 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 advertising banners). Visiting our social media presence triggers numerous data protection-related processing operations. In detail:
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. Under certain circumstances, your personal data can 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 recorded, for example, using 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. In 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 can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
Our social media appearances are intended to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases that must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
Responsible and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) against us as well as claim against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against 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 largely based on the company policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies, you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
Social networks in detail
We have a profile on Facebook. The provider is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. Facebook is certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield.
We have concluded an agreement with Facebook on joint processing (Controller Addendum). This agreement specifies which data processing operations we or Facebook are responsible for when you visit our Facebook page. You can view this agreement under the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum .
You can adjust your advertising settings yourself in your user account. To do this, click on the following link and log in: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads .
Data protection for our Facebook page
With this page we use the technical platform and the services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.
We inform you that when you visit Facebook pages, your IP address and other information will be saved. This information is used to provide the operator of the Facebook page with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page.
Further information can be found on the Facebook pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights .
Data that customers, interested parties and users transmit to us there can also be processed by us in accordance with our data protection declaration. The processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR) and our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR).
Facebook describes what information Facebook processes in its data policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy
Setting options for data protection and the privacy of your Facebook account can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/policy
Whether and how Facebook uses the data from the use of Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent it is assigned to individual user profiles, is currently not disclosed by Facebook. It is also unknown whether the data is passed on to third parties and whether and when they are deleted if necessary.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device or Internet connection is transmitted to Facebook. According to information from Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook saves information about the end devices of the users (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function); If necessary, Facebook is able to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information that can be used to directly identify you is deleted.
This allows you to use this Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access the interactive functions of the site (like, comment, share, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. After you have logged in, you will again be recognizable for Facebook as a specific user.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter . Further data is not collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This does not affect data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members' area).
This website uses Newsletter2Go to send newsletters. The provider is Newsletter2Go GmbH, Nürnberger Strasse 8, 10787 Berlin, Germany.
Newsletter2Go is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored on the Newsletter2Go servers in Germany.

Data analysis by Newsletter2Go
With the help of Newsletter2Go it is possible for us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked. In this way we can determine, among other things, which links have been clicked particularly often.

Newsletter2Go also enables us to subdivide the newsletter recipients into different categories ("cluster"). The newsletter recipients can be subdivided, for example, according to age, gender or place of residence. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .

Order data processing
We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Objection to data collection".
Google Web Fonts
This page uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to the Google servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
