D.        Applications

You will receive information about the type and scope of data processing in the event that you send us your application documents via the e-mail address provided immediately after receipt of your application.

E.         Social media

We operate websites on online platforms and social networks to interact with potential or existing customers, to exchange information with interested parties and users, or to advertise offers and services. We operate our websites in so-called joint responsibility (under data protection law) with the providers. We process data that you share or publish directly via the online platforms and networks (e.g. via comment and chat functions) as the controller in order to interact with you in this regard or to exchange information with you. As part of this interaction, we may also receive statistical data on the use of our “channels and fan pages” from the platform operators. This includes, for example, information about interactions, likes, comments or summarized information and statistics (e.g. IP address; origin of followers) that help us to learn about interactions with our site. The legal basis for data processing in our area of responsibility is Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

However, the providers also process data under their own responsibility. We have no influence on data that is processed by the provider under its own responsibility in accordance with its own terms of use and data protection. We would like to point out that when you access the aforementioned providers, further data (e.g. from your usage and “surfing behavior”) may be collected and possibly transmitted to the provider. Please also note that in the event of interaction via the aforementioned media, data may also be processed outside the European Union. Furthermore, user data is generally processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. You can find more information on this in the data protection information of the respective providers. If we have personal data about you in connection with the use of the online platforms and networks, please address your concerns to us. If you also wish to assert rights against a specific provider, please contact the respective provider.
