Use of Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Xing, YouTube and TikTok
Our online presence in social networks or on platforms serves to communicate with and inform (prospective) clients. We use products and offers of different providers such as, e.g., Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok and YouTube. When doing so, we and those third-party providers process personal user data, for some of which we may be jointly responsible.
We process your personal data as a user on the basis of our legitimate interest in informing users effectively and communicating with them as defined in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Where a user is asked to consent to processing of data (declaration of consent, e.g. by ticking a check box or clicking on a button), Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, Article 7 GDPR will be the legal basis.
For up-to-date information and a detailed description of the processing activities of these third parties (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok and YouTube), as well as further information on the processing of data by the third parties and the right to object please refer to our website: https://en.hyponoe.at/data-protection.
We have no influence on how TikTok collects and further processes the data. Furthermore, we cannot see to what extent, where and for how long the data is being stored, whether TikTok complies with applicable erasure obligations, how the data is analysed or linked and to whom the data is disclosed.
TikTok provides us with so-called site insights (analytics): https://www.tiktok.com/analytics. This is summarised data which helps us see how people interact with our website. Site insights may be based on personal data that was created in connection with a visit or an interaction of persons to or with our website and its contents. In accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR this serves to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests in presenting our offer in an optimised way and in an effective communication with our (prospective) clients.
You may object to processing of your data for the above purposes at any time by changing the settings for advertisements in your TikTok user account accordingly by going to the settings and customising "Personalised advertising" under "Settings and data protection".
Does automated decision-making (including profiling) take place?
No automated decision-making will take place as part of the processing of personal data.
Are you required to provide data?
In many cases we have no control over the processing of data by the operator of a social media platform and do not know exactly which data is processed by them.
If you communicate with us via social media channels it will be necessary to provide certain data for us to process your enquiry.
Who do we disclose your data to?
We will not disclose data you send to us in connection with private messages to third parties.
However, we will process data entered by you on social media platforms, in particular your username and the content published under your account, insofar as we may share your posts, reply to them or create posts ourselves that refer to your account or where you mention us in your posts. We will therefore include in our offer data freely published and disseminated by you on social media platforms, and we will make it accessible to our followers.
For how long will we store your data?
The storage period of personal data within the social media platforms will depend on the relevant platform operators. We do not have access to the data processed by the platform operators and we are in no position to influence whether it is deleted or not.
We will only process your data for as long as it is necessary and only for as long as statutory retention periods apply. If you send us private messages, we will only store them for as long as we need them for answering your enquiry. Posts published by you on our social media sites will remain on the timeline indefinitely unless we delete them, for example due to a violation of the law or a violation of our policies, or if you delete the post yourself.
