Social Media

Privacy policy for our social media sites

In the following we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  

Responsible body

We, the Corporate Communications of Diesel Technic SE, operate the following social media sites:

You can find our contact details in our disclaimer

In addition to us there is also the operator of the social media platform itself. In this respect, he/she is also another person responsible for data processing, over which we have only limited influence. At points in which we are able to exert influence and parameterise data processing, we work towards the privacy-friendly handling by the operator of the social media platform, within the scope of the possibilities available to us. At many points, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the operator of the social media platform and also do not know exactly which data he/she processes. The operator makes this clear for you in its respective privacy statement.

Data processing by us

The data entered by you on our social media pages such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us at any time for other purposes. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. If necessary, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Data processing is in the interest of our public relations and communication. 

If you wish to object to any particular data processing over which we have an influence, please contact the contact data stated in the disclaimer. We will then examine your objection or forward it to the social media platform, if necessary.  

If you send us an enquiry on the social media platform, we may also refer to other, secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the required answer. You always have the possibility to send us confidential enquiries to the address given in the disclaimer.

As already mentioned, we pay attention to the points where the provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity to make our social media pages as privacy-compliant as possible. We therefore do not use the demographic, interest-based, behaviour-based or location-based target group definitions for advertising that the operator of the social media platform may make available to us. With regard to statistics provided by the provider of the social media platform, we can only influence them to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us. 

Data processing by the operator of the social media platform

The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. Web tracking can also take place independently of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already mentioned, we can hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot switch it off, for example. 

Please be aware: It cannot be excluded that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example, to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences etc.. We therefore have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform. 

Further information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and other possibilities of objection can be found in the provider's data protection declaration:

In cases in which we are jointly responsible with the social media platform for the processing, you can find the main contents of the joint processing of your data here:

Your rights as a user

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you as a website user certain rights:

1.) Right to information (Art. 15 GDPR): 
You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed. If this is the case, you have a right of access to this personal data and to the information specified in Article 15 of the GDPR. 

2.) Right to correction and deletion (Articles 16 and 17 GDPR): 
You have the right to immediately request the correction of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data. 
You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted immediately if one of the reasons specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued. 

3.) Right to limitation of processing (Art. 18 GDPR): 
You have the right to request a restriction on processing if one of the conditions set out in Article 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to processing, for the duration of any examination. 

4.) Right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR): 
In certain cases, which are detailed in Article 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transmission of this data to a third party.  

5.) Right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR): 
If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f (data processing to protect legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of data concerning you violates data protection regulations. The right of appeal may be exercised in particular before a supervisory authority in the Member State where you are staying, working or suspected of infringing.
