When you visit our social media sites, it may be necessary to process data relating to you. We would therefore like to inform you hereafter pursuant to Article 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) about the handling of your data and about your rights resulting from this.
We, Niedersachsen Port GmbH & Co. KG, are operating the following social media sites:
You can find our contact details in the Imprint.
In addition to us, each operator of the social platform is also responsible for the processing of your personal data. As far as we can influence this and parameterize the data processing, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us toward the privacy-compliant handling by the operator of the social media platform. In connection with this, please also observe the privacy policies of each of the social media platforms.
We enable you to use social plug-ins. For reasons of data protection, however, we only embed the social plug-ins used by us in deactivated form. Therefore, when you visit our websites, no data is transmitted to social media services.
However, you have the possibility to activate and use the social plug-ins embedded in our websites. To facilitate this, we use a solution that ensures that during a first step, any data and functions required to display the social plug-ins are made available from our web server. Only when you decide to activate the respective social plug-in and click on the corresponding preview image or symbol, will your browser establish a connection to the servers of the operator of the respective social media service in a second step.
Once you activate a plug-in, the social media service will receive in particular your IP address and, among other things, and is made aware of your visit to our websites. This is done regardless of whether you have an account with the respective social media service. If you are logged in, the data can be directly associated with your social media profile.
Overall, we have no influence on whether and to what extent the respective social media service processes personal data after activation. However, it is likely that the social media service will use your data to create usage profiles and use them for the purpose of personalized advertising. In addition, your data will be used to inform other users of the social media service about your activities on our websites.
The embedding occurs based on your consent pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a GDPR, if you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image. Please note that embedding many social plugins will result in your data being processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that government agencies may access the data for security and surveillance purposes without you being informed about it or being able to appeal. If we use providers in unsafe third countries and you consent, the transfer to an unsafe third country will be based on art. 49 para. 1 letter a GDPR.
If you no longer wish the processing of your personal data by the activated social plug-ins, you can prevent future processing by no longer clicking on the preview image or symbol of the respective social plug-in.
Data Processing by Us
The data you enter on our social media pages, such as user names, comments, videos, images, likes, public messages, etc., are published by the social media platform and are never processed by us for any other purpose. We only reserve the right to delete content if this is necessary. We may share your content on our site if this is a feature of the social media platform and communicate with you through the social media platform.
If you submit a request to us on the social media platform, depending on the content, we may also refer to other, secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality. For instance, you have the opportunity to send us your inquiries at any time to the address stated in the imprint or to info(at)nports.de. It is your own responsibility to choose the appropriate communication path.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f GDPR and art. 49 para.1 letter a. The data processing takes place in the legitimate interest of carrying out public relations work for our company and communicating with you.
Some social media platforms generate statistics based on usage data and information about your interaction with our social media site. We cannot influence or prevent the execution and provision of these statistics. However, we do not use optional statistics from the social media platform.
We process this information pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f GDPR in the legitimate interest to validate the utilization of our social media pages and to improve our content for target audiences.
We occasionally use Facebook to play targeted advertising.
To do this, we use audience definitions provided to us by Facebook. We only use anonymous audience definitions - that is, we define characteristics based on general demographic information, behavior, interests and connections, for example. Facebook uses the latter to play suitable ads to its users. The legal basis for this is the consent that Facebook has obtained from its users. If you wish to recall this consent, please use the revocation options provided by Facebook, as Facebook is responsible for this processing. Occasionally, we or Facebook may also use publicly available data to define audiences. In that instance, the legal basis for this processing art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR, and art. 49 para. 1 letter a. Here, our legitimate interest is to define the audience as suitably as possible. For the definition of audiences, we never use sensitive categories of personal data that are included in art. 9 and 10 GDPR.
We do not use audience definition based on location data. We do not disseminate personal data with the operator of the social media platform within the scope of the audience definition.
If you would like to object to a particular data processing, over which we have an influence, please do so using the contact data mentioned in the imprint.
Duration of Storage
We will delete your personal data if it is no longer necessary for the aforementioned processing purposes and if no legal obligations to store such data prevent deletion.
Data Processing by the Operator of the Social Media Platform
