We use websites in social networks to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about us. It is possible that user data may also be processed outside the European Union. This could result in risks for users because, for example, the enforceability of their own rights may be more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, we point out that they thereby undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU. Furthermore, user data may be processed for analysis purposes. For example, profiles can be created from the usage behavior and interests of the users derived from this. These profiles can be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that are likely to correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies may be stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior, the users' interests and/or also the length of stay are stored. The processing of the users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of the users and communication with the users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the networks for consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a.). Furthermore, we also use content or service offers of third-party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) DSGVO) in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos. In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the respective providers.

The contents of our pages were created with the utmost care. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content.

We secure our website and other systems through appropriate technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons.
