Privacy policy

Information about our social media presences

The use of the pages on Facebook, XING and LinkedIn is for the purpose of generating advertising for our services and to contact potential customers and employees as well as existing customers. Further information, data and product information can also be found on our website.

As operators of social media sites, we are not interested in the collection and processing of individual personal data of our visitors. We do not collect any data here for market analysis or marketing purposes. Detailed information on how we handle your personal data can be found in our data protection declaration.

The legal basis for the operation of these social media sites – including the processing of personal data – is based on legitimate interest under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. EU-DSGVO.

Processing of personal data through social networks

According to the decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) of 5.06.2018, it was decided that the operator of a social media site together with the respective network is the joint responsible for the processing of personal data.

The following data are collected as users of Facebook, XING or LinkedIn:

  • Advertising (analysis tools, trackers and personalized advertising)
  • Creation and evaluation of user profiles
  • Market research and marketing analyses

Facebook Inc. is the American parent company of Facebook Ltd. Ireland and is EU-US Privacy-Shield certified. This means that Facebook promises to comply with and implement the data protection guidelines at the European level. This can be seen here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

XING Privacy Policy: https://privacy.xing.com/de and LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=hb_ft_priv

We have no influence or insight on compliance with these guidelines. We cannot exclude the possibility that user data may be transferred to third countries.

Cookies in social networks

When you visit the social media pages, Facebook, XING and LinkedIn may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the Internet Protocol address is stored – no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, allows you to be automatically recognized the next time you visit our website, which makes it easier for you to use. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Of course, you can also visit the pages without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised the next time you visit our website, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. The respective procedure can be found in the operating instructions of your browser. If you reject the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions in the use of some areas of our website.

Facebook’s Privacy Policy contains further information on data processing: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Statistical data collection by social networks

Facebook provides us with statistical data via Facebook Insights. This application can help us discover additional information about the demographics, location, or consumer behavior of potential customers. Facebook Insights examines who you have reached with your advertising message. The corresponding data can then be displayed either for all Facebook users or for the fans of a page as well as for a specified custom audience. The insights then provide more detailed information:

Demographic information: Age, gender, relationship status etc.

  • I like: Fans’ details for other Facebook pages
  • Location and language settings of the users
  • telephone number
  • Activity of the selected users
    Percentage of men and women
  • route planner

According to Facebook, all data that is visible in the Insights is aggregated and anonymous for advertisers. Consequently, no conclusions can be drawn about individual persons. We use these in aggregated form to make the contributions and activities on our site more attractive to each individual user. We use, for example, the distribution according to age and gender for an adapted communication and the prioritized visiting times of the users, in order to schedule the contributions of this Facebook page in an optimized way. Information about the type of end devices used by visitors helps us to adapt the contributions optically and creatively. In accordance with the Facebook Terms of Use, which each user has agreed to when creating a Facebook profile, we can identify subscribers and fans of the site and view their profiles and other shared information. The same applies to XING and LinkedIn.

Rights of users affected

Unfortunately, we cannot fulfil our information obligations according to Art. 13 EU-DSGVO, as only the social media networks have full access to the user data. If you wish to make use of your rights, please contact the respective social network directly here. These rights include the following:

Right to information:
You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.

Right of rectification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you may request us to correct or complete it at any time.

Right to deletion:
You can demand that we delete your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent an immediate deletion, e.g. in the case of legally regulated storage obligations.

Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no legal or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.

Right to limitation of processing:
You can demand that we restrict the processing of your data if

– You dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
– the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to delete it and instead demand a restriction on the use of the data,
– we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
– you have objected to the processing of the data.

Right to data transfer:
You may request that we make available to you the data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and that you may transfer this data to another responsible person without our obstruction, provided that

– we process this data on the basis of an agreement given and revocable by you or for the fulfilment of a contract between us, and
– such processing is carried out using automated procedures.

If technically feasible, you may request us to transfer your data directly to another responsible party.

Right of objection:
If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you may object to such processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.

Right of appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we violate German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us in order to clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, the respective state office for data protection supervision.

If you wish to assert any of the above rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we can request additional information to confirm your identity.

Should you require assistance or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail at info@ars-altmann.de. If you no longer wish to have the data processing described here processed in the future, please cancel the connection of your user profile to our site by using the functions “I no longer like this page” and/or “No longer subscribe to this page” and/or “No longer follow this page”.
