This privacy statement complies with the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or can only with disproportionate effort) establish a link to your person, e.g. through anonymisation, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.
Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate grounds for further retention of the data.
We will inform you in the individual processing operations about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.
We only disclose your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we disclose personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.
Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, they may be recipients of your personal data. You can find more information on the use of processors and web services in the overview of the individual processing operations.
Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), you have the following rights as a data subject:
In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

We maintain so-called fan pages or accounts or channels on the networks mentioned below in order to provide you with information and offers also within social networks and to offer you further ways to contact us and to inform yourself about our offers. In the following, we will inform you about which data we or the respective social network process from you in connection with calling up and using our fan pages/accounts.
If you wish to contact us via messenger or direct message via the respective social network, we generally process your user name via which you contact us and, if applicable, store further data provided by you insofar as this is necessary to process/respond to your request.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller).
We receive automated statistics regarding our accounts via Insights functionalities. The statistics include, among other things, the total number of page views, likes, details of page activities and post interactions, reach, video views and details of the proportion of men/women among our fans/followers.
The statistics only contain aggregated data that cannot be related to individual persons. You are not identifiable to us through this.
In order to view the content of our fan pages or accounts, you do not have to be a member of the respective social network and, in this respect, no user account is required for the respective social network.
Insofar as you wish to interact with the content on our fan pages/accounts, e.g. comment on, share or like our postings/contributions and/or contact us via messenger functions, prior registration with the respective social network and the provision of personal data is required.
We have no influence on the data processing by the social networks within the scope of their use by you. To our knowledge, your data is stored and processed in particular in connection with the provision of the services of the respective social network, as well as for the analysis of user behaviour (using cookies, pixels/web beacons and similar technologies), on the basis of which advertising based on your interests is played both within and outside the respective social network. It cannot be ruled out that your data will be stored by the social networks outside the EU/EEA and passed on to third parties.
When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies.
This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: https://facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
We are not able to draw conclusions about individual users by means of the statistical information transmitted. We only use this information to respond to the interests of our users and to continuously improve our online presence and ensure its quality.
We collect your data via our fan page only in order to realise a possible provision for communication and interaction with us. This collection usually includes your name, message content, comment content and the profile information you provide “publicly”.
The processing of your personal data for our above-mentioned purposes is based on our legitimate business and communicative interest in offering an information and communication channel pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. Should you, as a user, have given your consent to the data processing vis-à-vis the respective provider of the social network, the legal basis of the processing extends to Art. 6 para. 1 a), Art. 7 DSGVO.
Due to the fact that the actual data processing is carried out by the provider of the social network, our access to your data is limited. Only the provider of the social network is authorised to fully access your data. Because of this, only the provider can directly take and implement appropriate measures to fulfil your user rights (information request, deletion request, objection, etc.). The most effective way to assert your rights is therefore to contact the provider directly.
We are jointly responsible with Facebook for the personal content of the fan page. Data subject rights can be asserted with Facebook Ireland as well as with us.
The primary responsibility for the processing of Insights data lies with Facebook under the GDPR and Facebook complies with all obligations under the GDPR in relation to the processing of Insights data, Facebook Ireland provides the essence of the Page Insights Supplement to data subjects.
We do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and all other information resulting from Art. 13 GDPR, including legal basis, identity of the controller and storage period of cookies on user terminals.
