We have online presence on the following social media platforms:
- LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/value-balancing/
- Twitter: www.twitter.com/valuebalancing
In this respect, these social media platforms are also responsible for data processing, over which we have only limited influence. We would therefore like to point out that you use these social media sites and their functions under your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
Data processing by us
Unless otherwise stated in our data protection declaration, we process the data of users who communicate with us within social networks and platforms, e.g. post articles on our online presence or send us messages. The data you enter yourself on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and used or processed by us only for the information of users and communication with them. We also reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. We may 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. The processing of users’ personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are requested by the respective providers of the platforms to consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.
Data processing by the operator of the social media platform
Data processing by the operator of the social media platform: When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply. In this context it is pointed out that via these social networks and platforms, which are US providers, the data can be processed outside the area of the European Union. However, if US providers are certified under the Privacy Shield, they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU. Facebook and LinkedIn have submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield and thus offer a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
Web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the respective social networks and platforms, please refer directly to the data protection information of the respective social networks and platforms. There you will also find information about contact possibilities to the operators as well as about the setting possibilities for the protection of privacy as a user.
