Privacy policy for the Facebook profile

General information on data protection

We are very pleased about your interest in our Facebook site - and thus in our company. The protection of your private rights and freedoms is very important to us; we only use your data for the purposes intended. Since it is important to us that you are aware at all times of the extent to which we collect, use and, if necessary, transfer your data to third parties, we will inform you in detail below about the processing of your personal data (collected via our Facebook website).

When processing personal data, we strictly adhere to the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and, if applicable, other provisions relevant to data protection.


This privacy policy applies exclusively to our Facebook profile. It expressly does not apply to, among other things, other advertisements linked on our site by Facebook or profiles published on our chronicle. Furthermore, it does not apply to our own content from Facebook; you can find more information about data protection at Facebook here

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject (such as the right to information, correction, blocking or deletion of data) or if you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact our data protection officer directly.

Deletion or blocking of personal data

We store your personal data only for the period required to fulfill the specified purpose. After the purpose no longer applies and after expiration of any existing retention periods, your data will be deleted immediately. If deletion is not possible, the data will be blocked instead.

Rights of data subjects

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides for extensive rights for data subjects in Chapter III, which we explain to you accordingly below with regard to the processing of your personal data:

  1. Right to information

    This requirement concerns in particular information on the following details of data processing:

    • Processing purposes
    • Data categories
    • Recipients or categories of recipients, if applicable
    • If applicable, the planned storage duration or the criteria for determining this duration.
    • Note on the respective right of correction, deletion, restriction or objection
    • Existence of the right to complain to a supervisory authority
    • If applicable, origin of the data (if not collected from you)
    • If applicable, existence of automated decision-making including profiling, including meaningful information about the logic involved, the scope and the effects to be expected
    • If applicable, (planned) transfer to a third country or international organization
  2. Right to rectification

    We will correct any erroneous data immediately, provided that you inform us of the circumstance accordingly.

  3. Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

    Provided that the processing is no longer necessary and one of the following conditions is met:

    • Discontinuation of the purpose of processing
    • Withdrawal of their consent and absence of any other legal basis for processing
    • Objection to processing without an important reason to the contrary
    • Unlawful processing
    • Required to fulfill a legal obligation
    • Data collection was carried out in accordance with Art. 8 (1) GDPR

    Within the scope of the deletion request, we will, if necessary, pass on your request to those third parties to whom a transfer of your data had previously taken place.

  4. Right to restriction of processing

    Provided that one of the following conditions is met:

    • You dispute the accuracy of your data (restriction can be made for the duration of the review on our side)
    • In the event of unlawful processing and if the data is not to be deleted, restriction of processing shall take the place of deletion
    • If the processing purposes cease to apply, at the same time you need your data for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims
    • After you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and for the duration of the examination as to whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours.
  5. Right to data portability

    If it is technically possible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons, we will - at your request - transfer your data to another recipient (responsible party).

  6. Right to object

    If we collect or have collected and process personal data from you (on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e or f or Art. 9 (2) a GDPR), you have the right to object to the data processing (including profiling) at any time (with effect for the future). In exceptional cases, the objection may be ineffective, e.g. if we can demonstrate compelling interests worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests or processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to such processing at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct advertising. You also have the right to object to processing of your data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

  7. Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

    If we collect or have collected and process personal data from you, you have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. Exceptions to this requirement apply if the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us or you have expressly consented to the processing. In any case, we will take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on our part, to express our own point of view and to contest the decision.

  8. Right to revoke consent under data protection law

    You have the right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

  9. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

    A list of the supervisory authorities responsible in Germany can be found on the website of the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection or at the following link:

Our legitimate interest

Our legitimate interest, as defined in Article 6 (1) f GDPR, is based on the performance of our business activities in order to maintain our ability to operate and secure the employment of our employees.

Existence of automated decision making

We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling techniques.

Operation of our Facebook site

For the operation of our Facebook website, we may collect personal data. As a rule, the collection and processing of your data takes place in pseudonymized form; this means that we cannot assign your data directly to your name or e-mail address.

You can have a significant influence on the processing of your data; to do this, simply click on in your Facebook profile, click on the Settings menu item.


Facebook provides us with statistical data about visitors to our Facebook website via the "Insights" function. We are not able to establish a personal reference. This information is purely functional and helps us to better analyze our site and adapt it to your needs and interests.

Service provider for Facebook marketing

If we use service providers for the data processing of our Facebook site, we conclude corresponding contracts for commissioned processing (AVV) with them. In the course of this, we regulate to what extent and under what security conditions the processing of the data takes place and determine the necessary powers of instruction in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

Comment function on our Facebook page

We regularly publish news on our Facebook page. In order to be able to engage in an active exchange with you, we have activated the corresponding comment function of Facebook. We reserve the right to remove inappropriate contributions (e.g. with racist, illegal or comparable content) immediately. For this purpose, all comments are checked for inappropriate content. In doing so, we can see from which Facebook profile the respective comment was posted. We have access to

  • the content of the comment
  • the time of creation
  • the user ID
  • the Facebook username

and can establish a relation to the previous posts and comments. As a rule, data is not passed on to third parties; in exceptional cases, a legal provision or a corresponding court order may compel us to disclose the corresponding data.


You can contact us via various channels on our Facebook site. Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your contact. We use the data you provide without your separate consent exclusively to fulfill and process your contact request. Data will not be passed on to third parties or only on the basis of your request.
