To the extent that we can exert influence over or set parameters regarding the processing of your data, we will, within our means, take actions to ensure that the platform provider processes your data in compliance with applicable data protection regulations. However, the platform provider will inform you about this in his respective data protection declaration.

Data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations work and communication.

At no time is your data used or processed by us for any undisclosed purposes. To the extent that the platform provider leaves us room to exert influence over or set parameters regarding the processing of your data, we will design our social media pages to be as compliant as possible with applicable data protection rules. We therefore do not make use of demographic, interest-based, behavior-based or location-based target group classifications for the purposes of advertising, notwithstanding that such services may (by default) be provided to us by the social media platform Providers.

With regards to the receipt of the statistics provided by the platform provider, this may only be influenced by us to a limited extent and we do not possess the means to deactivate them completely. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.

If you wish to object to a particular data processing, please contact us via the contact information provided in our imprint . Following our examination of your request, we will determine whether we are able to respond to your request. If we are unable to fulfill your request using our own means, we will forward it to the appropriate service provider.

If you send us an inquiry through the social media platform, we may also, depending on your request, refer to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality. You always have the option to send us confidential inquiries to the address given in the imprint.

Data processing by the provider of the social media platform

The provider of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. Web tracking may also take place independently of whether or not you are logged in or registered on the social media platform. Unfortunately, we cannot influence or restrict the web tracking methods of the social media platform.

You have the right to obtain, without undue delay, the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the right to have incomplete personal data completed.
