Legal basis

Our social media presences serve the purpose of ensuring the widest possible presence on the Internet (online reputation). According to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. The analysis processes of social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operator of the social networks.
