Online presences in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks in order to inform active users about our services and, if interested, to communicate directly via the platforms. We are currently represented in the following networks:

 

Xing:  https://www.xing.com/companies/holmermaschinenbaugmbh

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HolmerMaschinenbau

All of our social media channels can only be accessed by visitors to the website via an external link. We do not use any plugins or other interfaces on our website which the respective networks offer for embedding the offers on websites.

We have no influence on the data collection and its further use by the social networks. For example, we do not know to what extent, where or for how long the data will be stored, to what extent the networks will comply with existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links will be made with the data and to whom the data will be passed on. We therefore expressly draw your attention to the fact that user data (e.g. personal information, IP address) is stored by the network operators in accordance with their data usage guidelines and used for business purposes.

We process the users' data in the social media presences insofar as they contact and communicate with us via, for example, comments or direct messages.

The legal basis for the processing of the user's data is Art. 6(1) lit. b and f EU-GDPR.

 

a) Xing

Within our online offer no functions and contents of the service Xing, offered by the New Work SE, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany, are integrated. The Xing channels can only be reached via an external link.

If the visitors to our website are members of the Xing platform, Xing can assign the call of the social media channel to the user's profile there if the user visits the Xing profile in the logged in state.

We would like to point out that we have no influence on the content or extent of use of the data collected by Xing. For further information, please refer to Xing's privacy policy: https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection

For further information on the processing of your data, we refer you to the Facebook privacy policy: https://facebook.com/privacy/explanation and to our following data policy "Facebook Fanpage" 

DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION FOR FACEBOOK FANPAGE

HOLMER Maschinenbau GmbH operates an online presence on Facebook and on Instagram – a Facebook and Instagram Fanpage. Please note the following details on data processing when you visit our fanpage. You can find out about data protection on Facebook and with Facebook products in general by visiting this address (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

 

 

1. General responsibility, contact data, Company’s data protection officer:

We are jointly responsible in conjunction with Facebook for the operation of our Facebook and Instagram fanpage, as laid down by Article 26, GDPR. To this end, we have established an agreement with Facebook about who is to fulfil which obligations when it comes to data protection. The agreement can be downloaded from the following address (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum).  Accordingly, Facebook is held primarily responsible for providing the data subject with information about joint processing, and for enabling the data subject to exercise his/her data protection rights. And independently of that, we would now like to provide you with some information about your visit to our fanpage.

 

You can find our contact details under the section entitled: “General information in our data protection declaration”

You can reach Facebook on:

Facebook Ireland Ltd.
4 Grand Canal Square,
Grand Canal Harbour,
Dublin 2, Ireland
Online, you can reach Facebook here (https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/2061665240770586)

 

You can contact our Company data protection officer under the section entitled: “General information in our data protection declaration”

 

You can contact Facebook’s data protection officer on
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970.

 

 

2. Logging and storage of personal data, the type and purpose of that data, and its utilisation:

a)     Data logged by Facebook:

If you are a Facebook/Instagram user, then Facebook/Instagram logs the data defined in the Facebook data guideline under “Which types of information do we log?”. If you are not a Facebook/Instagram user, then it may nevertheless arise that cookies – small text files combined with identifiers – come to be stored in your browser, and enable the tracking of your user behaviour.

As a rule, when you visit Facebook/Instagram, Facebook also processes your user data for market research and advertising purposes. User behaviour (also when you visit our fanpage) is also taken as the basis for setting up complex user profiles which may be utilised by Facebook/Instagram in order to present the user with personalised advertisements both on and off Facebook/Instagram.  And you can also find out more details in the Facebook data guidelines.

If you are not in agreement with this, you can decline at this point (opting out).

 

b)     Data which we use (“page insights”) and legal basis:

Facebook/Instagram provides us with statistics and user data on the basis of which we can analyse how our fanpage is used (“page insights”). This enables us to continuously improve what we provide on Facebook. In our capacity as the operator, we do not make any decisions concerning the processing of the insights data and of all other information covered by Article 13, GDPR, such as – for example – how long cookies can be stored on users’ terminals. Under GDPR requirements, the prime responsibility for the processing of insights data rests with Facebook; and Facebook has to fulfil all of the obligations arising from GDPR when it comes to processing the insights data.

In our capacity as the page controller, there is no other way (not even user tracking) for us to analyse user behaviour on our fanpage. Furthermore, it is essentially impossible for us to identify fanpage visitors on the basis of page insights. In particular, we have no right – under the agreement – to require Facebook/Instagram to disclose individual visitors’ data. We can identify visitors only if we are able to attribute individual profile pictures to “like” statements for the page; and then only to the extent that our fanpage has been marked “like” by the corresponding visitor and if the “like” statement is set to “visible”.

Here is where you can find out which information is used by Facebook in order to set up page insights.

The Facebook and Instagram fanpage is operated – and the page insights are used – for our justified interest in having an effective public image and efficient communication with our customers and prospective customers. This interest justifies the operation of the page not only in relation to the justified interests of Facebook/Instagram users, but also in relation to visitors to our fanpage who do not have their own Facebook/Instagram account. The corresponding legal basis for this is to be found in Article 6, paragraph 1, clause f), GDPR.

 

 

3. Forwarding of data to third parties:

Data which is logged by Facebook/Instagram is exchanged and processed within the entire Facebook group.  The applications belonging to the Facebook group include – for example – Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus. In other words, information logged by Facebook is used in order to provide the user with personalised advertising on Instagram; to take another example: information from WhatsApp is used in order to override – on Facebook – accounts which send spam via Whatsapp. You can find this information in the Facebook data guideline under “How do the Facebook companies collaborate?”.

It may arise, in the course of data processing by Facebook and by Instagram, that user data is transmitted outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), especially to the USA.

 

 

4. Right of objection:

If your personally related data is processed on the basis of justified interests as defined in Article 6, paragraph 1, clause f), GDPR, then you are entitled under Article 21, GDPR, to file an objection against the processing of your personal data if there are any reasons that relate to your particular situation, or if the objection concerns direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection which will be applied by ourselves with no need for any particular circumstances to be indicated. If you wish to make use of your right of contestation or objection, then all you have to do is to send an email to marketing(at)holmer-maschinenbau.com.

5. Rights of data subjects:

You have the right to revoke at any time the consent which you have given to us. The consequence of this will be that in the future we are no longer permitted to continue the data processing which had been based on the original consent. Furthermore, you are entitled to be informed, under Article 15, GDPR, you have the right of correction under Article 16, GDPR, and you have the right of erasure under Article 17, GDPR, the right for restriction of processing under Article 18, GDPR and the right for the transmission of data under Article 21, GDPR. Furthermore, there is a right to file an objection with a competent data protection supervisory body (refer Article 77, GDPR).

It is a fundamental rule that you can claim your data subject rights both from Facebook and from ourselves. Because it is only Facebook that has direct access to your user data, the most effective way for you to claim your data subject rights is via Facebook.

In the event of any questions concerning this data protection guideline, you can contact ourselves (or our data protection officer) at any time.

 

 

If you have any questions regarding this data protection notice, you can contact us or our data protection officer at any time.

 

 

 

Profiling

(1) In principle, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect towards you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. In particular, these decisions may not normally be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9(1) EU-GDPR. We do not use any corresponding decision-making processes within the framework of our website and the associated data processing.
