When you visit our social media sites, we process data concerning you. In the following, we would like to inform you in accordance with Art. 13 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) about our handling of your data and the rights you have in this respect.
We, LMT Tools GmbH & Co. KG, operate the following social media sites:
You can find our contact details in the Legal Disclosures.
The data such as usernames, comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc., that you provide on our social media sites are published by the social media platform, and we do not process these data for any other purpose at any time. We reserve solely the right to remove content insofar as this should be necessary. We may possibly share your content on our site if this is a feature of the social media platform and communicate with you on the social media platform.
If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also (depending on the content) refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality. For instance, you can send us your inquiries at any time to the address given in the legal disclosures or to email@example.com. The choice of the appropriate communication channel is your own responsibility.
The legal grounds for the data processing are set forth in point (f) of Art. 6(1) 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.
We are joint controller for some of the processing activities together with the operator of the pertinent social media platform and have concluded the agreement required pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR insofar as the operator of the social media platform makes this possible.
The essential components of our joint responsibility are found in the following section.
The social media platforms we use regularly generate statistics (insights) based on use data containing information about your interaction with our social media site. We can neither control nor prevent the compilation and provision of these statistics.
We process the aforementioned information (statistics) in accordance with point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR in the legitimate interest of validating the use of our social media sites and improving the orientation of our content to our target groups.
Marketing oriented to target groups
We also use the aforementioned social media platforms to disseminate targeted advertising.
The social media operator provides to us target group definitions that we use for this purpose. We use solely anonymous target group definitions - defining characteristics based on (for example) general demographics, behavior, interests, and links. The social media platform operator uses this information to display advertisements to its users. The legal grounds for this are the consent that the social media platform operator has obtained from its users.
If you wish to withdraw your consent, please use the withdrawal options provided by the social media platform operator as it is the controller for this processing.
We or the social media platform operators also use publicly available data for target group definition. The legal grounds for the data processing are set forth in point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. Our legitimate interest here is the definition of the most precise criteria possible for a target group. We never use sensitive categories of personal data as designated in Art. 9 and 10 GDPR (e.g., political opinions, sexual orientation) for target group definition.
The social media platform operator uses web-tracking methods. Web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform.
We would like to point out that the social media platform operator’s use and evaluation of your profile and behavioral data for its own purposes cannot be precluded. We have no control over the processing of your data by the social media platform operator. Please keep this in mind when using the social media platform.
We erase your personal data when they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and no legal retention obligations preclude their erasure.
