Data processing through social networks
Brose has publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks we use are listed below.
Social networks such as Facebook or Twitter et cetera can generally comprehensively analyze your behavior as user when you are visiting their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like-buttons or advertising banners). When you visit our social media sites, various data protection relevant processing operations are being triggered. In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media site, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in. Even if you do not have an account with the relevant social media portal, your personal data can still be collected. In this case, the data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social networks can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-related advertising can be displayed inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account on the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or where you have been logged in.
Our social media sites should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
The responsible and the assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are responsible, together with the operator of the social media platform, for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaints) basically both against us and against the operator of the respective social media network (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our possibilities depend largely on the corporate policy of the respective provider.
If you have any questions, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
The data collected directly by us via our social media sites will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, you request that we delete it, you revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which are stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their data protection declaration, see below).
The controller within the meaning of the GDPR is Brose Fahrzeugteile SE & Co. Kommanditgesellschaft, Coburg (Max-Brose-Straße 1, 96450 Coburg, Germany).
2. Purpose of processing and legal basis
We process your personal data (name, contact data, order data) for the purpose of selling and handling shipments of merchandise (such as motor racing calendars). The legal basis within the meaning of the GDPR for processing of your personal data is Article 6 (1) point (b) GDPR.
3. Disclosure of data and period of storage
Your personal data is provided to the departments at the controller which need it to fulfill the above purposes. Your personal data is not passed on to third parties.
Your personal data is erased as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose for which it was collected. If your personal data is processed as part of selling and handling shipments of merchandise (such as motor racing calendars), it is erased when all claims from the contractual relationship have become time-barred and there are no statutory retention periods standing in the way of that.
4. Your rights
You have the right under the applicable data protection legislation to:
- information, in particular on the data stored at the controller and the purposes for which it is processed (Article 15 GDPR),
- rectification of inaccurate or completion of incomplete data (Article 16 GDPR),
- erasure, for example of data that has been unlawfully processed or is no longer required (Article 17 GDPR),
- restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR),
- data portability, if data processing is based on consent or is carried out to fulfill a contract or using automated processing methods (Article 20 GDPR).
