• Applied browser and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as name of your access provider. 

Temporary storage of your IP address by the system is necessary to deliver our Website to the user terminal. To ensure this, the IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session. However, your IP address is not stored in our logfiles.

Processing is necessary to safeguard the predominantly legitimate interests of the party responsible (Para. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest is the purpose stated under item 6.2. 

4. Duration of storage

Data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of their collection. In the case of data recorded to provide the Website this will be the case when the session in question is terminated. Logfiles are deleted after 60 days. 

 

7. SOCIAL NETWORKS

7.1 Description of processing 

Our Website does not apply any so-called social media plug-ins. The logos of social networks shown on our Website, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Deezer, are merely linked with the corresponding profiles of our enterprise. If you click on these logos, you will be directed to the external website of the corresponding social network.  

However, our profiles within social networks are also considered data processing. If, on visiting such a profile in the corresponding social network, you are logged in, this information will be allocated to your user account there. If you interact with our profile, e.g. "share", "like" or "retweet" a post, this information will be stored in your user account. So-called "Insights" of our Facebook site allow us to retrieve statistical data. These statistics are provided by Facebook. The "insights function" cannot be excluded. We cannot decide to activate or deactivate this function. It is available to all Facebook fan book providers, regardless of whether you use the insights function of Facebook or not. We are provided with data for a selectable period and on the following group of people concerned: fans, subscribers, persons reached and interacting persons. This function refers to the following categories of personal data: total number of sites accessed, "likes" including origin, site activities, interaction of posts, scope, scope of posts (broken down into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared contents, replies as well as demographic evaluation, i.e. home country, gender and age. Due to the Facebook user policies – which every user must agree to in order to use Facebook – we are able to identify subscribers and fans of our site and to view their profiles. 

Social networks with which you communicate store your data by applying pseudonyms as user profiles and use them for advertising and market research purposes. Thus, you can be shown adverts within the social network and on other third-party websites corresponding to your supposed interests. For this purpose, cookies are usually used which the social network places on your terminal. For further information regarding cookies refer to item 10. You have the right to object to such creation of user profiles; to claim this right you must directly apply to the corresponding social networks. 

7.2 Purpose

We maintain profiles with the social networks mentioned above for the purpose of updating and supporting public relations and corporate communication with customers and interested parties.  

We use the function "Facebook Insights" to make posts on our Facebook fan page more attractive to our visitors. This enables us to make use of favourite visit times of visitors for optimum planning of our posts in terms of time.
