Our data processing

The data you enter on our social media sites, such as user name, remarks, videos, images, likes and public messages, for example, will be published by the social media platform and never processed by us for any other purposes. We merely reserve the right to delete contents, should this be necessary. Where appropriate, we share your contents on our site, if this function is available on the social media platform, and communicate with you over the social media platform.


If you use a social media platform to send us a request, we may refer to other, more secure, communication methods that ensure confidentiality, depending on the contents of the request. For example, you may, at any time, send your enquiries to the address or e-mail address indicated in the Legal Notice ( Therefore, you are solely liable for choosing the appropriate communication method.


The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6(1) paragraph 1(f) GDPR. The data processing takes place in the legitimate interest of performing public relations work for our company and communicating with you.


Certain social media platforms generate statistics created from usage data that contain information about your interaction with our social media site. We have no influence over how these statistics are generated or provided, nor can we disable them. On the other hand, we do not apply any of the social media platforms’ optional statistics.


We process this information in accordance with Art. 6(1) paragraph 1(f) GDPR in the legitimate interest of validating how our social media sites are used and of improving our contents for specific target groups.

Data processing by the social media platform operator
