When you visit our social media sites, it may be necessary for the data relating to you to be processed. We would therefore like to inform you about the management of your personal data and your resulting rights in accordance with Art. 13 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

- LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/schulke-&-mayr/
- YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/schuelkeChannel

You can find our contact details in the imprint.

In addition to us, the respective operator of the social media platform is also responsible for processing your personal data. As far as we can influence this and parameterize the data processing, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us to ensure data protection-compliant handling by the operator of the social media platform. In this context, please also note the privacy policies of the respective social media platform.

Data processing by us

The data you enter on our social media sites, such as user names, comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc., are published by the social media platform and are never processed by us for other purposes. We only reserve the right to delete content if this is necessary. Where appropriate, we will share your content on our site, if this is a function of the social media platform, and communicate with you via the social media platform.

If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other, secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the content. For example, you have the option at any time to send us your inquiries to the address given in the imprint or via our contact form. It is your own responsibility to choose the appropriate communication channel.

The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data processing takes place in the legitimate interest to conduct public relations for our company and to be able to communicate with you.

We also use our social media sites to carry out special campaigns, e.g. competitions or registration for online events. In this context, we only process the personal data that is absolutely necessary for participation or determining the winner and that you provide to us voluntarily. This includes your first and last name or your social media profile name, your email address and, if applicable, the content of your comments. In case of further measures resulting from the participation, e.g. the delivery of the prize or answering your questions, we would contact the transmitted email address and request further necessary data. In addition, the processing of your personal data set out in this privacy policy may take place in the context of visiting our social media account. 

The legal basis for processing your data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR. You have the option at any time to object to the processing of your personal data in the context of these actions for the future. In this case, you will no longer be able to participate in the promotion. All personal data stored for this purpose will be deleted in this case, at the latest 6 months after the end of the promotion, unless there are legal obligations to keep records. Comments that you leave on the social media platform in this context can be deleted by yourself at any time.

Some social media platforms create statistics that are created on the basis of usage data and contain information about your interaction with our social media site. We cannot influence or prevent the implementation and provision of these statistics. However, we do not use optional statistics from the social media platform.

We process this information in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR in the legitimate interest of validating the use of our social media sites and improving our content in a target group-oriented manner.

In addition, we can occasionally use the social media platforms described to display targeted advertising. In this case, we use target group definitions that are made available to us by the social media provider. We only use anonymous target group definitions - we define characteristics, for example, on the basis of general demographic information, behavior, interests and connections. The operator of the social media platform uses these to display advertisements accordingly to its users. The legal basis for this is the consent that the operator of the social media platform has obtained from its users. If you want to revoke this consent, please use the revocation options provided by the provider of the social media platform, as the social media platform operator is responsible for this processing. Occasionally we or the provider of the social media platform also use publicly available data to define target groups. The legal basis for this processing is then Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest on our part is to define a target group that is as suitable as possible. We never use sensitive categories of personal data, which are mentioned in Art. 9 and 10 GDPR, to define target groups.

We do not use targeting based on location data. We do not pass on any personal data within the scope of the target group definition to the operator of the social media platform.

Occasionally we also use information about visits to or interaction with other sites (so-called remarketing) to define target groups. For this we use, among other things, also cookies. In these cases, however, we obtain the consent of the users in advance on the respective other sites via a consent banner and at this point provide information about the data processing. You can revoke this consent at any time by calling up the consent banner on the relevant website again.

If you would like to object to certain data processing over which we have an influence, please refer to the contact details given in the imprint.

Storage duration 

We delete your personal data when it is no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and there are no statutory retention requirements to prevent deletion.

Data procession by the operator of social media platform

The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform.

We would therefore like to point out that it cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform will use your profile and behavioral data to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform, so that you use the social media platform at your own risk.

You can find more detailed information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform, configuration options to protect your privacy and other options for objection and, if available and concluded, the agreement pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR in the provider's privacy policy:
