Processing of personal data when visiting our online presence on the social media platform LinkedIn
As Joint Controller we operate a company site on the LinkedIn platform of the provider LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland („LinkedIn“), where we inform about news from our company and events.
Data processing on our LinkedIn site and legal basis for this
As a provider of an online presence on the social media platform LinkedIn, we process personal data when you contact us directly via the platform (in a personal message or via the public comment function). Which data is collected depends on the content of your message and the contact details you have provided or released.
With the help of this data the provider of the social media platform can also create user profiles. This enables him to display interest-related advertising to the user within and outside the respective social media presence. If you are also logged into your social media account with the browser you use for our LinkedIn site, the name of the account is also forwarded. This allows the social media provider to match the visit of this website to your user account.
The processing of personal data collected via the platform by us is based on Article 6 (1) sent. 1 (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in being able to present the Company to the outside world in a variety of ways and to make the most effective use of the communication opportunities with our customers. If you are asked by LinkedIn to give your consent to the above-mentioned data processing, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) sent. 1 (a), Article 7 GDPR.
Joint Controller Agreement according to Article 26 GDPR
We have concluded a Joint Controller Agreement with LinkedIn pursuant to Article 26 DSGVO in which the data protection obligations arising from the operation of our company site are divided between us and LinkedIn. LinkedIn has thereby assumed a large part of the data protection obligations, such as the fulfillment of the data subject rights pursuant to Articles 12 et seq. GDPR, the obligation to provide suitable technical and organizational measures to protect the security of personal data, and the notification and notification obligations in the event of a data protection breach. If you contact us regarding your data subject rights, we will immediately forward your request to LinkedIn. We are obligated to do this under the agreement with LinkedIn.

Disclosure of personal data
Please note that we cannot track all data processing activities on LinkedIn, nor do we have any control over it. Accordingly, we cannot control or exclude the possibility that the information collected by LinkedIn may be transferred to a third country, specifically to a server of LinkedIn's parent company, LinkedIn Corporation, located in 1000W. Maude Ave. Sunnyvale, California 94085, USA. In such cases, the information is submitted to LinkedIn Corporation on the basis of EU-Standard Contractual Clauses.
Rights of the data subject
In principle, you can assert your data protection rights with regard to data processing by our LinkedIn site both against us and against LinkedIn. However, we would like to point out that these can be most effectively claimed on LinkedIn. Because only LinkedIn, as the provider, has access to the users' data and can therefore take appropriate measures and provide information directly.
For further information on the processing of your personal data through LinkedIn, possibilities of adjustment and contradiction please refer to the websites of LinkedIn, for example:
