National Data Protection Regulations in Germany:
In addition to the data protection regulations of the GDPR, there are national regulations on data protection in Germany. This includes the Law for the Protection against Misuse of Personal Data in Data Processing (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG). The BDSG contains special regulations concerning the right to information, the right to deletion, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes, and transmission as well as automated decision-making on an individual basis, including profiling. Furthermore, state data protection laws of individual federal states may also apply.

Note on the Applicability of GDPR and Swiss DPA:
These data protection notices serve both as information under the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (Swiss DPA) and under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For this reason, please note that, for broader spatial application and understanding, the terms used in the GDPR are used, instead of the terms used in the Swiss DPA, such as “processing” of “personal data,” “legitimate interest,” and “particularly sensitive personal data.” However, the legal meaning of the terms continues to be determined in accordance with the Swiss DPA during the applicability of the Swiss DPA.

These user profiles can then be used to display advertisements within and outside the networks that are presumed to match the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on users’ computers, where user behavior and interests are stored. Additionally, data can be stored in user profiles independently of the devices used by the users, especially when users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in.

For a detailed description of the respective processing methods and options for opting out (Opt-Out), we refer to the privacy policies and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.

In the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that these are most effectively addressed with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need assistance, you can contact us.
