Legal basis

The legal basis for data processing is sentence 1, point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. Our legitimate interests follow from the data collection purposes listed below.

The aforementioned data are processed by us for the following purposes:

Social media

Type and purpose of processing:

Social plugins of the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by their identification with the corresponding logo.

Under certain circumstances, information that may also include personal data can be sent via these plugins to the operator of the respective service, and may be used by them. We prevent the unknowing and unwanted recording and transfer of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution. In order to activate a certain social plugin, it first has to be enabled by clicking the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the recording of information and its transfer to the service provider. We ourselves do not collect any personal data by means of the social plugins or about their use.

We have no influence on what data are collected by an activated plugin, nor on how the data are used by the provider. At this time, it must be assumed that a direct connection is established to the services of the provider, and that at least the IP address and device-specific information are recorded and used. It is also possible that service providers may attempt to store cookies on the computer being used. To determine the concrete data recorded in this process and how they are used, please see the data protection notice of the respective service provider.
