Data controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”):
We, Amadeus FiRe AG, Hanauer Landstraße 160, D-60314 Frankfurt am Main (“Amadeus FiRe”), use the technical platforms and services of various social networks to provide an additional offer of interaction and information as part of our corporate communication in order to inform you also in this way about our company and our services and get in contact with you. For information about the individual social networks used by us and details of our corporate social media presences, see further below.
Taking into consideration recent developments in European case law (European Court of Justice - ECJ), the main responsibility for the operation of such corporate social media presences lies with the providers of the social networks for the purposes of data protection law. With this privacy notice, we wish to acknowledge our joint responsibility as operator of the respective corporate social media presence and inform you as a visitor – as best as we can based on the published information – of how your personal data is processed.
You are free to decide whether you wish to visit our corporate social media presences and use the functions provided. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (such as commenting, sharing or rating). Alternatively, you can generally also obtain the information that is being offered through our corporate social media presences on our website at www.amadeus-fire.de and get in contact with us there.
This privacy notice is supplemented by our general “Privacy notice regarding the use of our website”, which is available at www.amadeus-fire.de/datenschutz and applies accordingly to our corporate social media presences. In particular, you can find general information there regarding, for example, the data protection officer of Amadeus FiRe and your rights as a data subject.
A visit to our corporate social media presences triggers various processing activities that are relevant for data protection purposes but are neither controlled by us nor clear to us in every detail. In particular, the provider of the respective social network may collect data about you and about the devices that you use. In this connection, the provider of the social network may automatically process content, communications and other information you provide (for example, when you comment upon, share or rate contributions). In addition, information may be collected about the people, pages and groups you are connected to and how you interact with them, among other things. Information about the time, frequency and duration of your activities as a user may also be affected. In addition to the above, the providers of social networks may collect information about the devices (computers, telephones, etc.) that you use, for example, device attributes, device identifiers, device signals, data from the device settings, network and connection data (including your IP address) and data existing as cookies on your computer.
Such information is used, for example, to obtain statistical information about the use made of our corporate social media presences. Furthermore, the social network providers may use the relevant data for their own, additional purposes, for example, to provide, personalise and improve their own products, to enable usage across devices and across products, or to show personalised and, where applicable, location-related ads.
The social network provider processes the data that is collected about you in this context and, where applicable, shares it with other companies from the same group to facilitate, support and integrate their activities or improve the services. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that the provider shares data worldwide, both internally between companies of the same group and with external partners. In this connection, data may also be transferred to countries outside the European Union.
As for the specific data processing activities of the individual social networks, please note the respective network providers’ data and privacy policies that are referred to below. You will also find information there about how to get in contact, as well as about the available setting options regarding ads.
The purpose of our corporate social media presences and of the related processing of personal data is the provision by Amadeus FiRe of a supporting offer of interaction and information; they thus serve the purpose of safeguarding our legitimate interests in accordance with point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The data processing activities of the social networks themselves, which are neither controlled by us nor clear to us in every detail, may take place on different legal bases, which must be stated by these networks separately. Please note the respective data and privacy policies of the providers also in this regard.
If you are logged in as a user and visit our corporate social media presence, the respective social network provider can attribute this visit and your user behaviour to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may be collected even if you are not logged in as a user or do not have an account in the respective social network. In particular, such a collection of data may take place if there is a cookie with your ID on your terminal. The provider can thus see that you have visited our pages and how you have used them. Through buttons that are integrated in web pages, certain providers are additionally in a position to collect data about your visits to these web pages and attribute them to your profile. Based on such data, it is possible to provide content or ads specifically tailored to you. The data and privacy policies of the respective providers which are referred to below contain information about how you can prevent such data from being collected. Furthermore, you can delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, the information that could otherwise be used to directly identify you is deleted.
