2. What sources and data do we use?
We process the personal data that you give us when you use social media.
If you are active on our social media channels, e.g. writing messages, commenting on articles or voicing your opinion in any way, ('Like' button), emoticons etc.), these activities and your social media profile is visible to us. The respective operators of the social media platforms allow us to view public profile data (e.g. user name, profile picture, gender etc.). You can define which profile data is publicly accessible via the settings in your user account of the respective social media platform.
As part of our use of social media, we can also call up statistical usage data from the respective social media companies. This may be information about page views and activities; views of individual articles, videos, services (e.g. route planer) etc., comments, shared content, answers, usage quotas: men and women, origin with respect to country and town, language, age or device type.
No data is saved in our server logfiles, but it is automatically transferred to the respective social media company when our social media pages are viewed.
We currently offer the following social media channels:
Facebook fan pages
Operation of a Facebook fan page represents processing in joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR. To this end, an agreement has been concluded with Facebook Ireland Ltd. (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland). This agreement can be called up under the following link:
Pursuant to this agreement, we can neither make any decisions about nor influence the way data is processed by Facebook. The responsibility for processing the so-called 'insights data' and fulfilment of the corresponding duties of the GDPR is assumed by Facebook.
As Instagram is a part of the Facebook Group, the information provided about the Facebook fan page also applies here.
3. What are the purposes for which we process your data and the legal basis?
We process your personal data in compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):
a) Within the scope of a balance of interests (Art. 6(1) f) GDPR)
The legal basis for processing personal data via our social media channels is Art. 6(1) f) GDPR. We have a legitimate commercial interest in using social media platforms for marketing purposes. Specifically, we use our social media channels for the following purposes:
The data saved in the server logfiles is transferred to the respective social media company when our social media pages are viewed. We would like to point out that the social media companies create so-called usage profiles based on your usage behaviour that is also used e.g. for placing adverts. Usually, cookies are set for this. As mentioned above, we have no influence on how this data is processed (see section 2 above).
b) Based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR and Art. 49(1) a) GDPR)
As soon as you grant us consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. publication of fan photos), we are legally allowed to process data on the basis of your consent. Consent that has been granted can be revoked at any time,
Art. 7(3) 1 S. GDPR. Please note that your revocation only applies to data that is processed in the future. It does not apply to data that was processed before the consent is revoked. If you have granted the social media companies consent for certain data processing, the data is processed based on Art. 6(1) a) GDPR and Art. 49(1) a) GDPR.
c) Based on statutory stipulations (Art. 6(1) c) GDPR) or for public benefit (Art. 6(1) e) GDPR)
We are also obliged to meet various legal obligations, i.e. statutory requirements. If data is processed for this purpose, this only occurs based on these regulations.

Within the company, those offices that require data to fulfil our contractual and statutory duties receive your data. Also, any companies we contract to process data (Art. 28 GDPR) may receive data for these specific purposes (IT service provider).

With respect to the transfer of data to recipients outside the company, please note that we only forward data if this is allowed or stipulated by law, if you have given your consent or we are authorised to issue information. In these cases, recipients of personal data could be: public offices and institutions (e.g. public prosecutor’s office, police, regulatory authorities), if there are statutory or official obligations. Other data recipients could be those offices for which you have granted your consent to transfer the data.
