§ 4 Legal basis
The legal basis for how data is processed as described above is Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) DGPR. The data collected is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security or serve to make our website generally more user-friendly and effective.

§ 5 Data recipient
The above-mentioned data may be seen by contract processors who operate or maintain our website and systems.

§ 6 Soziale Netzwerke
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active on these social networks and to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This could result in risks for users, e.g. it could make it more difficult to enforce the rights of users. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, we would like to point out that by doing so they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards.

In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can also be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are presumed to correspond to the interests of users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer in which the user's usage behaviour and interests are stored. In addition, data can be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in the effective information of users and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers to give their consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent, e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing operations and the opt-out options, please refer to the following linked information provided by the providers.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and give information. Should you nevertheless need help, you can contact us.
