Privacy policy for pages on third-party platforms

If you visit MÜNCHENSTIFT pages on third-party platforms, it may be necessary for data relating to you to be processed. We would therefore like to inform you in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) about the handling of your data and your rights resulting from this.

1. Accountability

MÜNCHENSTIFT operates the following pages on third-party platforms:

You can find our contact details in the respective imprint of the platform.

In addition to us, the respective operator of the platform is also responsible for the processing of your personal data. Insofar as we can influence this and parameterize the data processing, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us to ensure that the platform operator handles the data in a manner that complies with data protection law.

In this context, please also refer to the data protection declarations of the respective platform.

2. Data processing by MÜNCHENSTIFT

The data you enter or make available on our pages, such as

  • usernames
  • comments
  • videos
  • images
  • interactions
  • public messages, etc.

will be published by the platform and will not be processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if necessary. Where appropriate, we will share your content on our site if this is a feature of the platform and communicate with you through the platform.

If you submit a request to us on the platform, depending on the content, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality. For example, you always have the option of sending us your inquiries to the address or e-mail address listed in the imprint. The choice of the appropriate communication channel is your own responsibility in this regard. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The data processing is carried out in the legitimate interest of conducting public relations for our company and being able to communicate with you.

Some third-party platforms create statistics based on usage data and contain information about your interaction with our site. We cannot influence or prevent the execution and provision of these statistics.

We process this information in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR in the legitimate interest of validating the interaction with our pages and improving our content in a target group-oriented manner.

We also occasionally use some of the platforms described to play out targeted advertising.

For this purpose, we use target group definitions that are provided to us by the platform operator. We only use anonymous target group definitions - defining characteristics based on, for example, general demographic information, behavior, interests and connections. The platform operator uses these to show advertisements to its users accordingly. The legal basis for this is the consent that the platform operator has obtained from its users.

If you wish to revoke this consent, please use the revocation options provided by the platform provider, as the platform operator is responsible for this processing. Occasionally, we or the platform provider also use publicly available data for target group definition. The legal basis for this processing is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The legitimate interest on our part here is to define a target group that is as suitable as possible. We never use sensitive categories of personal data mentioned in Art. 9 and 10 GDPR for target group definition.

We do not pass on any personal data to the operator of the platform.

If you wish to object to a specific data processing over which we have influence, please contact the office mentioned in the imprint.

3. Storage period

We delete personal data if they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purpose and no legal retention obligations preclude deletion.

4. Data processing by the third-party platform operator

The operator of the platform may use tracking methods. The tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the platform.

We would therefore like to point out that it cannot be ruled out that the provider of the platform may use your profile and behavioral data to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc., for example. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the platform, so that the use of the platform is your own responsibility.

You can find more information on data processing by the third-party platform provider, configuration options for protecting your privacy, and further objection options in the privacy policy of the respective provider:

5. Your rights as a data subject

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you, as the data subject, certain rights both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the platform operator, if the requirements are met:

Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed and, where that is the case, access to the personal data and the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, if necessary, to have incomplete personal data completed.

Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay where one of the grounds specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the preconditions specified in Art. 18 GDPR applies, such as when you have objected to processing, pending verification by the controller.

Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

In certain cases, which are specified in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit those data to another third party.

Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 GDPR)

Should data processing be based on your consent, pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data at any time. Please note that the withdrawal shall only be effective for the future. Any processing performed prior to withdrawal of consent shall not be affected.

Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR (data processing serving legitimate interests) or of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. e) GDPR (data processing serving the public interest or in the exercise of official authority), you have the right to object to processing at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. We will no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR)

Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes data protection regulations. The right to lodge a complaint may be exercised in particular vis-à-vis a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.

6. Our data protection officer

You also have the right to contact our data protection officer at any time, who is bound to secrecy regarding your request. The contact details of our data protection officer can be found on the privacy policy page.

We will be happy to provide you with more detailed information on request.
