6. Social media sites

a) Lin­kedIn

reu­sch­law uses the tech­ni­cal plat­form and ser­vices of Lin­kedIn Ire­land Unli­mi­ted Com­pa­ny, Wil­ton Place, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land (her­ein­af­ter “Lin­kedIn”) for the infor­ma­ti­on ser­vice offe­red here. We would like to point out that you use this Lin­kedIn page of reu­sch­law and its func­tions on your own respon­si­bi­li­ty. This app­lies in par­ti­cu­lar to the use of the inter­ac­ti­ve func­tions (e.g. com­men­ting, sharing, rating).

aa) Joint con­trol­lers­hip with LinkedIn

reu­sch­law is joint­ly respon­si­ble with Lin­kedIn only for the pro­ces­sing of “insights data”, inso­far as the­se data are used for the crea­ti­on of “page insights”.

reu­sch­law and Lin­kedIn have con­clu­ded an agree­ment wit­hin the frame­work of their joint con­trol­lers­hip, which you can down­load here (so-called “Page Insights Joint Con­trol­ler Adden­dum”). The agree­ment rela­tes to tho­se data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons that are collec­ted in con­nec­tion with a visit or inter­ac­tion with our Lin­kedIn pro­fi­le, but only to the extent that such data are also (sub­se­quent­ly) pro­ces­sed for “page insights”. “Page insights” inclu­de ana­ly­sis ser­vices that help the ope­ra­tor of a Lin­kedIn pro­fi­le to bet­ter under­stand inter­ac­tions with your pages. The pur­po­se of the data pro­ces­sing is to pro­du­ce aggre­ga­ted sta­tis­tics for Lin­kedIn pro­fi­le operators.

The data are pro­ces­sed wit­hin the frame­work of a visit to or inter­ac­tion of per­sons with a Lin­kedIn pro­fi­le, but only to the extent that the pur­po­se is use for “page insights”. More infor­ma­ti­on about this is pro­vi­ded by Lin­kedIn at this link. The infor­ma­ti­on avail­ab­le for the data sub­jects on data for “page insights” spe­ci­fy how and when “insights data” are collec­ted and used to crea­te “page insights”:

  • When a Lin­kedIn mem­ber visits, tracks or enga­ges in acti­vi­ties on the site, Lin­kedIn pro­ces­ses per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on to pro­vi­de the site ope­ra­tor with insight into how the site is used.
  • In par­ti­cu­lar, Lin­kedIn pro­ces­ses data that the mem­ber has pro­vi­ded to Lin­kedIn, such as infor­ma­ti­on about a member’s func­tion, coun­try, indus­try, senio­ri­ty, com­pa­ny size and employ­ment sta­tus from the member’s profile.
  • Lin­kedIn also pro­ces­ses infor­ma­ti­on about how a mem­ber has inter­ac­ted with your com­pa­ny site, such as whe­ther a mem­ber is a follower.

When you visit our Lin­kedIn site, Lin­kedIn collects, among other things, your IP address and other infor­ma­ti­on that is stored on your PC in the form of coo­kies. This infor­ma­ti­on is used to pro­vi­de us, as the ope­ra­tor of the Lin­kedIn site, with sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­ti­on about the use of the Lin­kedIn site. We do not recei­ve any per­so­nal data from Lin­kedIn in this context.

The data collec­ted about you in this con­text are pro­ces­sed by Lin­kedIn and may be trans­fer­red to coun­tries out­side the Euro­pean Uni­on. What infor­ma­ti­on Lin­kedIn recei­ves and how it uses it is descri­bed in gene­ral terms in LinkedIn’s User Agree­ment and Pri­va­cy Poli­cy. The­re you will also find infor­ma­ti­on about how to con­ta­ct Lin­kedIn and how to set up ads. The Lin­kedIn data poli­cy is avail­ab­le at this link.

Should you wish to exer­cise a right to which you are enti­t­led under the GDPR, we would like to point out that we can­not ful­ly com­ply with all of the­se rights without Lin­kedIn. It would cer­tain­ly be more effec­ti­ve for you to con­ta­ct Lin­kedIn direct­ly. If you still need help, plea­se con­ta­ct us.

The respec­ti­ve respon­si­bi­li­ties bet­ween reu­sch­law and Lin­kedIn, espe­cial­ly with regard to the pro­tec­tion of the rights of the data sub­jects, can be found in the Page Joint Con­trol­ler Adden­dum.

Lin­kedIn assu­mes pri­ma­ry respon­si­bi­li­ty for ful­fil­ling the GDPR obli­ga­ti­ons for the joint pro­ces­sing of “insights data”. This inclu­des the ful­film­ent of the fol­lowing rights of the data subjects:

  • the right to infor­ma­ti­on (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • the right to era­su­re (Art. 17 GDPR),
  • the right to limi­ta­ti­on of pro­ces­sing (Art. 18 GDPR),
  • the right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty (Art. 20 GDPR) and
  • the right to object (Art. 21 GDPR).

bb) Con­trol­lers­hip of reuschlaw

In addi­ti­on, reu­sch­law is also sole­ly respon­si­ble for cer­tain data pro­ces­sing. In order to offer our infor­ma­ti­on ser­vice, we pro­cess the fol­lowing data for com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with Lin­kedIn users:

  • pro­fi­le name as well as data pro­vi­ded by the user in the cour­se of the chat, e.g. to pro­cess ser­vice requests;
  • sta­tis­ti­cal sur­veys on tar­get group advertising;
  • sta­tis­ti­cal data on user inter­ac­tions in aggre­ga­ted form, i.e. without per­so­nal refe­rence for reu­sch­law (e.g. page acti­vi­ties, page views, page pre­views, likes, recom­men­da­ti­ons, con­tri­bu­ti­ons, vide­os, page sub­scrip­ti­ons inclu­ding ori­gin, times of day); and
  • tar­ge­ted adver­ti­se­ments based on aggre­ga­ted demo­gra­phic data without per­so­nal refe­ren­ces (e.g. age, loca­ti­on, lan­guage or gender).

Pur­po­ses and legal bases of data processing

The pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out for the pur­po­se of ans­we­ring your enqui­ries (if you have sent us an enqui­ry) or com­mu­ni­ca­ting with you and for publi­shing infor­ma­ti­on on events and ser­vices of reu­sch­law. The legal basis of the pro­ces­sing for the pur­po­se of reply­ing to enqui­ries that ser­ve the future con­clu­si­on of a con­tract and are initia­ted by you is Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. b) GDPR and in other cases Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. f) GDPR.

Legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests in data processing

The legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest is the effec­ti­ve pro­vi­si­on of infor­ma­ti­on for users, cus­to­mers and inte­res­ted par­ties and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with the­se per­sons as well as the pre­sen­ta­ti­on of reu­sch­law to third parties.

You can find this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on in its cur­rent ver­si­on on the “About Us” page under the item “Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on” on our Lin­kedIn page.

Trans­fers to a third country

Inso­far as per­so­nal data are trans­fer­red to Lin­kedIn ser­vers in the United Sta­tes and stored and pro­ces­sed the­re, Lin­kedIn Ire­land Unli­mi­ted Com­pa­ny, Wil­ton Place, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land has ent­e­red with the Lin­kedIn com­pa­nies based in the US into stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clau­ses that have been adop­ted by the EU Com­mis­si­on and that allow per­so­nal data to be trans­fer­red to the US in spe­ci­fic cases.

Dura­ti­on of data storage

After com­ple­ti­on of your request, the per­so­nal data pro­vi­ded by you will be dele­ted from our sys­tems. If you inter­act with us publicly, for examp­le by lea­ving a com­ment or “lin­king” to a post, the­se data will remain publicly avail­ab­le on the site until they are dele­ted by you or us. Inso­far as legal sto­rage obli­ga­ti­ons requi­re lon­ger sto­rage, your data will only be stored for this pur­po­se and blo­cked for other purposes.

Right to object to data processing

To exer­cise your right of objec­tion towards us, plea­se con­ta­ct eit­her datenschutz@reuschlaw.de or the abo­ve address by post or tele­pho­ne. We will then pro­cess your request immediately.

Obli­ga­ti­ons / obli­ga­ti­on to pro­vi­de data

Your pro­vi­si­on of data is vol­un­ta­ry. Howe­ver, it is not pos­si­ble to visit our pro­fi­le without our pro­ces­sing per­so­nal data tog­e­ther with Lin­kedIn or without reu­sch­law and Lin­kedIn pro­ces­sing per­so­nal data on their own sepa­ra­te responsibility.

b) Twit­ter

reu­sch­law uses the tech­ni­cal plat­form and ser­vices of the plat­form Twit­ter Inc, One Cum­ber­land Place, Feni­an Street, Dub­lin 2 D02 AX07, Ire­land (her­ein­af­ter “Twit­ter”) for the infor­ma­ti­on ser­vice offe­red here.

aa) Con­trol­lers­hip of Twitter

We would like to point out that you use the Twit­ter short mes­sa­ge ser­vice offe­red here and its func­tions on your own respon­si­bi­li­ty. This app­lies in par­ti­cu­lar to the use of the inter­ac­ti­ve func­tions (e.g. sharing, rating).

For infor­ma­ti­on on what data are pro­ces­sed by Twit­ter and for what pur­po­ses they are used, plea­se refer to the Twit­ter pri­va­cy poli­cy.

reu­sch­law has no influ­ence on the type and scope of the data pro­ces­sed by Twit­ter, the type of pro­ces­sing and use or the trans­fer of the­se data to third par­ties. In this respect, reu­sch­law also has no effec­ti­ve means of control.

When you use Twit­ter, your per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted, trans­fer­red, stored, dis­c­lo­sed and used by Twit­ter Inc. and, regard­less of your resi­dence, is trans­fer­red, stored and used in the United Sta­tes, Ire­land and other coun­tries whe­re Twit­ter Inc. does business.

On the one hand, Twit­ter pro­ces­ses your vol­un­ta­ri­ly ent­e­red data such as name and user name, e‑mail address, tele­pho­ne num­ber or the con­ta­cts in your address book when you upload or syn­chro­ni­ze it.

Twit­ter also eva­lua­tes the con­tent you share to deter­mi­ne what topics you are inte­res­ted in, stores and pro­ces­ses con­fi­den­ti­al messages you send direct­ly to other users, and can deter­mi­ne your loca­ti­on using GPS data, wire­less net­work infor­ma­ti­on or your IP address to send you adver­ti­se­ments or other content.

For eva­lua­ti­on pur­po­ses, Twit­ter Inc. may use ana­ly­sis tools such as Twit­ter or Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. reu­sch­law has no influ­ence on the use of such tools by Twit­ter Inc. and has not been infor­med about such poten­ti­al use. Should tools of this kind be used by Twit­ter Inc. for the account of reu­sch­law, this does not mean that reu­sch­law has eit­her com­mis­sio­ned or appro­ved of this or sup­por­ted this in any other way. Nor are the data obtai­ned during the ana­ly­sis made avail­ab­le to reu­sch­law. reu­sch­law can only view via its account cer­tain non-personal infor­ma­ti­on about tweet acti­vi­ty, such as the num­ber of pro­fi­le or link clicks through a par­ti­cu­lar tweet. Fur­ther­mo­re, reu­sch­law has no pos­si­bi­li­ty to pre­vent or dis­able the use of such tools on its Twit­ter account.

Final­ly, Twit­ter also recei­ves infor­ma­ti­on when you view con­tent, for examp­le, even if you have not crea­ted an account. The­se “log data” may inclu­de the IP address, brow­ser type, ope­ra­ting sys­tem, infor­ma­ti­on about the pre­vious web­site and pages you visi­ted, your loca­ti­on, your mobi­le ope­ra­tor, the device you are using (inclu­ding device ID and app­li­ca­ti­on ID), the search terms you used, and coo­kie information.

By using Twit­ter but­tons or wid­ge­ts inte­gra­ted into web­sites and by using coo­kies, Twit­ter is able to record your visits to the­se web­sites and allo­ca­te them to your Twit­ter pro­fi­le. The­se data can be used to offer con­tent or adver­ti­sing tailo­red to your needs.

You can limit the pro­ces­sing of your data in the gene­ral set­tings of your Twit­ter account and under the item “Pri­va­cy and secu­ri­ty”. In addi­ti­on, you can restrict Twit­ter access to con­ta­ct and calen­dar data, pho­tos, loca­ti­on data, etc. on mobi­le devices (smart­pho­nes, tablet com­pu­ters) in the set­tings the­re. Howe­ver, this depends on the ope­ra­ting sys­tem used.

More infor­ma­ti­on on the­se items is avail­ab­le on the fol­lowing Twit­ter sup­port pages:

You can find out more about the pos­si­bi­li­ty of viewing your own data on Twit­ter here.

Infor­ma­ti­on about the con­clu­si­ons drawn from Twit­ter about you can be found here.

Infor­ma­ti­on on the avail­ab­le per­so­na­li­sa­ti­on and data pro­tec­tion set­tings can be found here (with fur­ther references).

You also have the opti­on to request infor­ma­ti­on via the Twit­ter pri­va­cy form or archi­ve requests.
