Privacy Statement

for our social media pages

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

Responsible

NORD GEAR LTD. utilises the following social media pages:

You can find our contact data in our Legal Notice.

In addition to us, there are also the actual operators of the social media platforms. These are also responsible entities which perform data processing, over which we only have limited influence. Wherever we can exercise our influence and set parameters for data processing, we act within the framework of the options which are available to us to ensure correct handling of data by the operators of the social media platforms. However, at many points we cannot influence data processing by the operators of the social media platforms and we also do not know exactly which data they process.

How we Process Data

The data which you enter on our social media pages such as comments, videos, images, likes, public messages etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed for any other purpose. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. We may share your content on our web page if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1 ) (f) GDPR. Data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication work.

If you wish to object to a particular form of data processing which is within our sphere of influence, please communicate this to the contact which is stated in the Legal Notice. We will then examine your objection.

If you make an enquiry via the social media platform, depending on the necessary response, we may refer you to other secure communication routes which ensure confidentiality. You always have the option of sending confidential enquiries to the address which is stated in the Legal Notice.

As has already been mentioned, in places where our social media platform providers gives us the option, we take care that our social media pages are designed in compliance with data protection regulations. We only have a limited influence with regard to statistics which are provided to us by the social media platform operators, and cannot disable these statistics. However, we take care that no additional optional statistics are provided.

Data Processing by Social Media Platform Operators

Social media platform operators use web tracking methods. Web tracking may also be used regardless of whether or not you are registered with the social media platform. As has already been described, we have hardly any influence on the web tracking methods which are used by social media platforms. For example, we cannot disable these.

Therefore, please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of a social media platform uses your profile and usage 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.

You can find further information about data processing by the provider of the social medial platform and further possibilities for objection in the provider’s Privacy Statement.
