XII Online presence in social media

https://www.facebook.com/Unternehmensgruppe.Willig/

https://instagram.com/kurtwillig_gmbh?utm_medium=copy_link
 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0PLZBKvuzS1cw_Jrl3BrSw

We have no influence on the collection of data and its further use by the social networks. Thus, there is no knowledge of the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored, to what extent the networks comply with existing deletion obligations, what evaluations and links are made with the data and to whom the data is passed on. We therefore expressly draw attention to the fact that user data (e.g. personal information, IP address) is stored by the operators of the networks in accordance with their data usage guidelines and used for business purposes.

We process the data of users in the social media presences insofar as they contact and communicate with us via, for example, comments or direct messages.
The legal basis for the processing of the user's data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f GDPR.

Kurt Willig GmbH & Co. KG operates an online presence on Facebook, a so-called Facebook Fanpage. The following additional information on data processing applies to visits to our fan page. Information on data protection on Facebook in general can be found here (www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

1. joint responsibility, contact details, company data protection officer:

We are jointly responsible with Facebook for the operation of our Facebook fan page in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR. For this purpose, we have defined in an agreement with Facebook who fulfills which obligations with regard to data protection. This agreement can be accessed here (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum). Accordingly, Facebook is primarily responsible for providing the data subject with information about the joint processing and enabling him or her to exercise his or her data protection rights. Irrespective of this, we hereby inform you about your visit to our Fanpage.

2. collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose and use thereof:

a) Data collected by Facebook:

If you are a Facebook user, Facebook collects the data described in the Facebook Data Policy under "What types of information do we collect? If you are not a Facebook user, cookies with identifiers, small text files, may still be stored in your browser, which enable so-called tracking of your user behavior.

As a rule, the user data during a visit to Facebook is also processed by Facebook for market research and advertising purposes. Based on user behavior (also when visiting our fan page), complex user profiles are created, which Facebook can use to play personalized advertisements to the visitor within and outside of Facebook. More information on this can also be found in the Facebook data policy.

If you do not agree to this, you can object here (opt-out).

b) Data used by us ("Page Insights") and legal basis:

Facebook provides us with statistics and usage data that we can use to analyze the use of our fan page (so-called "page insights"). This enables us to continuously improve our offer on Facebook. We, as the operator, do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and any other information resulting from Art. 13 of the GDPR, such as storage duration of cookies on user devices. The primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights Data lies with Facebook and Facebook complies with all obligations under the GDPR with respect to the processing of Insights Data.

We as the site administrator have no other way, not even via user tracking, to evaluate user behavior on our fan page. It is also fundamentally not possible for us to identify the visitor to the Fanpage on the basis of the Page Insights. In particular, we have no right under the agreement to require Facebook to disclose individual visitor data. Identification is only possible for us if we are able to assign individual profile pictures to "Like" page views; however, this is only possible insofar as our Fanpage has been marked with "Like" by the corresponding visitor and the "Like" is set to "public".

You can find out what information Facebook uses to create Page Insights here.

The operation of the Faceboook fan page and the use of page insights serves our legitimate interest in effective external presentation and efficient communication with our customers and interested parties. This interest justifies the operation of the page both in relation to the legitimate interests of Facebook users, as well as visitors to our fan page who do not have a Facebook account. Accordingly, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

3. disclosure of data to third parties:

Data collected by Facebook is shared and processed throughout the Facebook group. The Facebook Group also includes, for example, Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus. For example, information collected through Facebook is used to display personalized ads to the user on Instagram, or information from WhatsApp is used to take action against accounts that send spam through WhatsApp on Facebook. This information can be found in the Facebook Data Policy under "How do Facebook companies work together?".

When Facebook processes data, user data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), in particular the USA.

4. right of objection:

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which will be implemented by us without specifying a particular situation. If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to info@willig.eu.

5. data subject rights:

You have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. Furthermore, you have the right to information according to Art. 15 GDPR, the right to correction according to Art. 16 GDPR, the right to deletion according to Art. 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR, as well as the right from data portability from Art. 21 GDPR. Furthermore, there is a right of appeal to a competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).

In principle, you can assert your data protection rights both against Facebook and against us. Since only Facebook has direct access to your user data, you can most effectively assert your data subject rights against Facebook.

 

XIV Your rights

If personal data is processed by you as a user, you are considered a data subject in accordance with the GDPR. Data subjects are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis the controller:

  • Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
