Social Media Privacy Policy

I. Presence in social networks

We maintain online presences within social networks which you can access via the following URLs:

facebook: https://facebook.com/audimedes

Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/audimedes-gmbh

Xing: https://www.xing.com/pages/audimedes

In this context, we process user data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active there or to offer information about us.

We would point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks to users because, for example, it could make it more difficult to enforce users’ rights.

You can view our full privacy policy at https://www.audimedes.com/en/data-protection/.

II. Facebook

For the information service offered here, you use the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

We would point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can access some of the information provided via this page on our website at https://www.audimedes.com.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook records, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More information on this is available from Facebook at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context will be processed by Facebook Ltd. and may under some circumstances be transmitted to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms in its data use policy what information it receives and how this is used. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook as well as the setting options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.

Facebook’s full data policy can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy.

The way in which Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores these data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page are passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for “German” IP addresses). Facebook also stores information about its users’ devices (e.g. as part of the “long-in notification” function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, there will be a cookie with your Facebook ID on your device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. These data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or disable the “stay logged in” function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser. This will result in the deletion of Facebook information via which you can be directly identified. This will allow you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access the page’s interactive features (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After logging in, you will once again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user. For information on how to manage or delete your personal information, please visit the following Facebook support pages: https://www.facebook.com/help/193677450678703.

As the provider of the information service, we also collect and process the following data from your use of our service. These data may be collected automatically by Facebook via the use of the service or provided or shared by you independently:

Types of data processed: Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), usage data (e.g. access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information).

Data subjects: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).

Purposes of the processing: Contact requests and communication, tracking (e.g. interest-based/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), reach measurement (e.g. access statistics, recognition of returning visitors).

Legal basis: The use of Facebook pages takes place in the interest of giving our online offers an appealing presentation and ease of findability of the places we indicate on the website as well as the use of the data for marketing and targeting purposes. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and settings options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy.

Settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings or via the US site aboutads.info or the EU site youronlinechoices.com. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

The joint processing of personal data takes place on the basis of an agreement on the joint processing of personal data.

You can also find more information about Facebook and other social networks and how to protect your data at www.youngdata.de.
