Social media channels
We have set up and maintain corporate websites and channels on various social networks and process your personal data to actively communicate with you and provide you with additional information about us.
The social media portals and channels are not run by us, but by the respective operators under their own responsibility in the meaning of data protection regulations. Therefore we have no influence on the data collected and processed by the operator, nor are we aware of the full scope of data processing, its purposes of processing or storage periods.
In certain cases we process your data with the operator of the social medium in joint controllership pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR.
We draw your attention to the fact that, when using social media, your data may be processed outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) (in the so-called "third countries"), where the level of data protection does not correspond to that in the EU. This may result in certain risks as, for example, it may be more difficult for you to exercise your rights.
