We embed elements of social media services on our website to provide you with further information and contact options. We do not have access to this data.

When visiting these pages, user data may be processed outside the area of the European Union. In these jurisdictions, German or European data protection law is generally not applicable.

The data obtained from visitors to social media is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Based on the content accessed, usage profiles can be created, which in turn are used for advertisements within and outside of social media that are intended to correspond to the interests of the users. This procedure is usually made possible by cookies that are stored on the users’ computers.

However, data of social media users may also be stored by the provider in other ways, especially if these users are registered and logged in to the social medium.

The processing of users’ personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. As the operator of a presence in a social medium, we have a legitimate interest in effectively informing users and communicating with users. If the user has consented to the data processing – for example by clicking on a checkbox – the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.

For further information on data processing and opt-out options, please contact the respective providers, which you will find listed below.

Requests for information and the assertion of other user rights are best directed to the providers themselves. Only they have access to all user data and can provide the requested information or take measures.
