However, you are also welcome to contact us if this should become necessary and we will then forward the request to the respective provider if necessary.

With social media pages we can communicate with and provide you with interesting information.

If you use social media on several end devices, a cross-device analysis of the data can take place. Furthermore, the providers of the social media pages may also use cookies and tracking technologies to analyze and improve their services.

Data processing takes place with consent or for the purpose of answering user enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 s.1 lit. a or b GDPR) or on the basis of legitimate interests in improving the services, advertising and marketing activities and presentation to the outside world (Art. 6 para. 1 s.1 lit. f GDPR). The interaction and information obtained through our website are always subject to your privacy settings for each social network. This type of service might still collect traffic data for the pages where the service is installed, even when you do not use it.

It is recommended to log out from the respective services in order to make sure that the processed data on our website isn’t being connected back to your social media profile.

When classifying people into target groups, demographic data or data about the location of a person is also included in order to place targeted advertisements with these people.
