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),

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.

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.

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.

In addition, your IP address is processed to provide the services of Zoom.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

The processing of your name and IP address is necessary to enable you to participate in webinars and video conferences offered by us.

The data processing is based on Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. b) GDPR and on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f) GDPR.

Legitimate interests in data processing

Our legitimate interest lies in the implementation of video conferences and webinars using Zoom. You are completely free to participate in this.

Transfers to a third country

Insofar as personal data are transferred to servers of Zoom in the United States and stored and processed there, we have concluded with Zoom the standard contractual clauses adopted by the EU Commission that allow the transfer of personal data to the US in specific cases.

Duration of data storage

We store the data until the webinar or video conference has been completed.

Obligations / obligation to provide data

The provision of your data and the registration for an event is voluntary. However, if you wish to participate in a webinar or video conference with us, it may be necessary for us to process your data in order to fulfil our obligations.

IV.    Your rights as a data subject

1.    Right to information

You can request information in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR about the personal data of yours which we process.

2.    Right to rectification

If the information concerning you is not (or no longer) correct, you can request a rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR. If your data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

3.    Right to erasure

You may request the erasure of your personal data in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR.

4.    Right to restrict processing

In accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data.

5.    Right to portability

In the event the requirements of Art. 20, Para. 1 GDPR are met, you have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files are mandatory for the operation of the website. They are therefore not based on consent in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. a) GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. b) GDPR, but are legitimate in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. f) GDPR. The prerequisites of Art. 20, Para. 1 GDPR are therefore not fulfilled in this respect.

6.    Right of lodge a complaint

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law, you have the right in accordance with Art. 77, Para. 1 GDPR to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority of your own choice. This also includes the data protection supervisory authorities responsible for the controller:

V.   Right to object pursuant to Art. 21, Para. 1 GDPR

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you, which is based on Art. 6, Para. 1, Sen. 1, lit. f) GDPR. The controller will then no longer process the personal data, unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files are mandatory for the operation of the website.
