Data protection I Facebook information for data subjects, Art. 13, 14 GDPR

 

Below we provide you with information about the processing of your personal data when using our Facebook page and the rights you have in this connection as far as data protection is concerned.

 

Please consider carefully which personal data you exchange and share with us on Facebook.

 

You can also find out about us and the services we offer on our website at https://www.reichert-reichert.de/. In this case, no information will be provided to Facebook.

 

 

I. Processing of personal data by us when using our Facebook page

 

The data provided by you on our Facebook page, such as comments, reviews, photographs, likes and tweets, are published by the social network Facebook and are not used or processed by us at any time for any purpose other than the following.

 

We process the data entered by you on our Facebook page by commenting on them and sharing them or using them to communicate with you via the social network. In doing so, we reserve the right to erase content insofar as we deem this necessary. The legal basis for processing the data in these cases is our legitimate interest in our PR work and our product and company advertising in accordance with Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR.

 

If you make contact with us via our Facebook page or send us queries, the data you provide are processed exclusively to deal with and answer your contact query and the associated administration. The legal basis for processing the data in these cases is our legitimate interest in dealing with your reason for contacting us in accordance with Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR. If the reason for your contact was to conclude a contract or take steps prior to entering into a contract, the additional reason for processing is Art. 6(1) point (b) GDPR. We erase the data collected in connection with your contact once storage is no longer required or we restrict processing if there are statutory retention obligations. For the personal data provided when you make contact, we assume that no further storage is required if the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been resolved definitively.

 

We may refer you to other, more secure means of communication to answer your query. If you wish to prevent Facebook from processing personal data you send to us, please contact us by different means, e.g. using the address given in our legal notice.

 

Unless you make use of your right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of a balance of interests, we erase your data as soon as the legitimate interest mentioned above ceases to obtain or we restrict processing if statutory obligations pursuant to  Art. 6(1) point (c) GDPR prevent erasure.

 

 

II. Processing of personal data by the operator of the social network

 

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook processes, among other things, your IP address and other information present in the form of cookies on your PC. In addition, this information is made available to us, as the operator of the Facebook page, as statistical information about the use of our page in aggregated form, but it does not allow us to draw conclusions about personal data.

 

As the operator of the Facebook page, we cannot identify the countries within or outside the EU in which the data are stored by Facebook, the scope and duration of their storage, whether Facebook meets existing erasure obligations, the analyses and connections made with the data, nor the parties to whom the data are passed on.

 

In particular, we are not able to determine whether and to what extent Facebook uses web tracking tools, irrespective of whether you are registered or logged in as a user of the social network, and uses your profile and behaviour data to analyse your habits, personal relationships and preferences, or the extent to which activities on the page can be associated with individual users. Also, we are not aware whether and to what extent Facebook processes data relating to our page for its own purposes or they are passed on to third parties.

 

If, as a registered user of Facebook, you are logged in when you visit our Facebook page, there is a cookie with your Facebook ID on your PC by means of which the operator of the social network can see that you have visited our Facebook page and how you used it. If you wish to prevent this, you should log out of Facebook or disable the “stay signed in” function, delete the cookies on your device and close and re-open your browser.

 

You can find information about data processing by Facebook and the options Facebook offers to manage and erase the data processed by Facebook in the provider’s privacy policy in its latest version at https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation and under  “Privacy policy” and  “Data protection information” on the homepage of the social network.

 

 

III. Right to object

 

If data are collected to pursue one of our legitimate interests on the basis of Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons relating to your particular situation. We will no longer process the data unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

 

IV. Data controller for data collection and processing and contact details of the data protection officer

 

Insofar as we exclusively process the personal data transferred to us about you via our Facebook page ourselves, we as reichert & reichert Tax Consultancy and Law Firm are the data controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation. You can contact us by post at our street address Zeppelinstraße 7, 78224 Singen, Germany or by telephone on +49 7731 9587-0.

V. Your rights as a data subject

 

You have the right to information about the personal data stored concerning you and to rectification of incorrect data and to erasure, if one of the reasons specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data are no longer required for the purposes pursued. You also have the right to restriction of processing, if one of the conditions specified in Art. 18 GDPR applies, and the right to data portability in cases covered by Art. 20 GDPR. Under Art. 22 GDPR, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly disadvantages you.

 

If you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the provisions of data protection law, you have the right under Art. 77 GDPR to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The right to lodge a complaint may be pursued, in particular, with a supervisory authority in the Member State in which you reside or which is the place of the alleged infringement. In Baden-Württemberg, the Supervisory Authority of the Regional Officer for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Königsstraße 10a, 70173 Stuttgart, is responsible.
