Data Protection Statement for Social Media 
We maintain online presences within social networks, in order to communicate with the users active on these or to offer information about us there. 
We would like to point out that this can involve processing data of users outside the European Union. This can result in risks for users by, for example, making it difficult to enforce users' rights. With respect to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield or offer comparable guarantees of a secure level of data protection, we would like to point out that these providers thereby commit to compliance with EU data protection standards. 
Furthermore, the data of users within social networks is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and interests of users arising from this. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks which supposedly correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged on to these). 
For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the options for objecting to these (opt-outs), please refer to the data protection statements and information provided by the operators of the respective networks. 
For requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights also, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. 

• Processed data types: Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. email, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses). 
• Data subjects: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services). 
• Purposes of the processing: Contact requests and communication, tracking (e.g. interest/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), remarketing, reach measurement (e.g. access statistics, recognition of returning visitors). 
• Legal bases: Legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation]).
