We would like to point out that you use our presence on social media platforms and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our websites, the social media platform providers collect, among other things, your IP address and other information that is available on your device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as account operators, with statistical information about interactions with us.
(3) The data collected about you in this context is processed by the platforms and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union, in particular the USA. According to their own statements, all of the aforementioned providers maintain an appropriate level of data protection that corresponds to that of the former EU-US Privacy Shield and we have concluded standard data protection clauses with the companies. We do not know how the social media platforms use the data from your visit to our account and interaction with our posts for their own purposes, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties. Data processing may differ depending on whether you are registered and logged in to the social network or visit the site as a non-registered and/or non-logged in user. When you access a post or the account, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform. If you are currently logged in as a user, a cookie on your device can be used to track how you have moved on the internet. Using buttons integrated into websites, the platforms are able to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your respective profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you. If you want to avoid this, you should log out or deactivate the “stay logged in” function, delete the cookies on your device and restart your browser.
(4) As a provider of the information service, we only process the data from your use of our service that you provide to us and that require interaction. For example, if you ask a question that we can only answer by email, we will store your information in accordance with the general data processing principles we describe in this privacy policy. The legal basis for the processing of your data on the social media platform is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f GDPR.

If you have any questions about the processing of your interaction with us on our site, please write to the contact details provided above.
