3. Cookies and Tracking Technologies

Please refer to our Symplast Cookie Policy at [Symplast Cookie Declaration] for information on the cookies and tracking technologies we use.

4. Online Presence in Social Networks

We maintain online presences on social networks to communicate with customers, interested parties, and to provide information about our products and services.

Users' data is typically processed by the respective social networks for market research and advertising purposes. This may involve creating user profiles based on user interests and on-site behavior. Cookies and other identifiers may be stored on users' devices for this purpose. These user profiles enable personalized ads on the social networks and on third-party websites.

As operators of these online presences, we may access statistics provided by the social networks on the use of our online presences. These statistics are aggregated and may include demographic information and data on user interaction with our online presences and posted content.

For details and links to data protection information for the respective social networks, please see the list below.

The legal basis for data processing is GDPR Art. 6(1)(a)-(b), allowing us to stay in contact with customers, inform our customers, and take pre-contractual measures with prospective customers and interested parties.

For information on data processing carried out by social networks independently, please refer to the data protection policies of each respective social network. The links provided offer further details on data processing and opt-out options.

Please note that data protection requests are most effectively directed to the respective social network providers, as they have direct access to the data and can take appropriate measures. The list below provides information about the social networks on which we operate online presences.

  • Twitter (Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 AX07 Ireland).
  • LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland).
  • Google my business
    • We operate a so-called Google My Business entry. Should you find us in this way, we make use of the information service offered by Google and the services of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter “Google”).
    • We would like to point out that you use the Google site and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the social and interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating, direct messaging). When you visit and interact with our Google My Business listing, Google also collects your IP address and other information that is present on your terminal device in the form of so-called cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Google My Business listing, with statistical information about the use of Google services. The data collected about you in this context will be processed by Google and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Google generally describes what information it receives and how it is used in its privacy policy. Google provides more detailed information in its privacy policy:
    • Google privacy policy 
    • We do not know how Google uses the data from the visit for its own purposes, to what extent activities of individual users are assigned, how long Google stores this data and whether data is passed on to third parties. When accessing Google services, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Google. Google also stores information about its users’ end devices; this may enable Google to assign IP addresses to individual users or user accounts.
    • If you contact us via our Google My Business entry or other Google services by direct message, we cannot rule out the possibility that these messages may also be read and evaluated by Google (both by employees and automatically). We therefore advise against providing us with personal data there. Instead, another form of communication should be chosen as early as possible. We delete conversations no later than 14 days after the last chat activity, or immediately after switching to another communication channel. The use of this service is subject to the Google Privacy Policy, which you – with use – have already agreed to.
    • We, as the provider of our Google My Business entry, do not collect or process any further data from your use of this Google service. Beyond that, we do not use any Google functions on our website.
