Data protection information on our social media presences

The data protection information for the processing of personal data on our website can be found under the following link.

In order to actively communicate with users and to provide information about our activities, we, fodjan GmbH, Großenhainer Straße 101, 01127 Dresden, Germany, maintain a number of different social media presences, partly in joint responsibility with the social network operators listed below.

In the context of the user-side use of our presences in the social networks listed below, we would like to point out that users’ personal data may also be processed by the operators of the social networks outside the European Union and outside the European Economic Area. This may result in possible risks for users, for example in more difficult enforcement of data protection rights. At the same time, however, we would like to point out that if the operators of the social networks support this, we will work towards the conclusion of joint responsibility agreements pursuant to Article 26 of the GDPR and standard data protection clauses pursuant to Article 46(2)(d) of the GDPR.

In addition, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the personal data of users is usually also processed by the operators of social networks for their own market research and advertising purposes. Any usage profiles generated from the usage behaviour can also be used to display interest-based advertisements outside the social networks. For this purpose, the operators of the social networks usually place cookies on the users’ computers so that device information, usage behaviour and interests of users can be processed even if the user does not have a profile in the respective network. For further information on this and on possible objection options, please refer to the data protection information and further notes of the respective operators of social networks, which we have linked for you below.

The following also applies to the processing of personal data:

Categories of data processed
The categories of data processed include inventory data (e.g. names), contact data (e.g. email addresses), content data (e.g. text entries), usage data (e.g. interest in content) and meta and communication data (e.g. device information and IP addresses).

Purpose and legal basis of processing
Data processing is carried out, insofar as this is subject to our responsibility, for the purposes of information provision, communication, marketing and range measurement. The operation of the social media presences results from a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby the respective interests result from the aforementioned purposes.

Storage period
The categories of data processed by us are only stored within the respective social network. In most cases, we have no influence on the specific storage period, as this is determined by the providers of the social networks. Information on this can be found in the data protection information of the respective provider. If the storage period can be influenced by us in individual cases, it will be deleted after the purpose has been fulfilled in compliance with the statutory retention obligations.

Services and service providers used by us as well as network-specific information
In the following, we inform you about the services and service providers we use as well as about network-specific information, naming the respective responsible bodies within the EU / EEA as well as those outside. We do not transfer any data beyond this.

Information on the rights of data subjects
Data subjects may at any time request information about the personal data concerning them and, if necessary, request rectification or deletion or restriction of processing, or object to processing. They also have the right to data portability. Furthermore, if the data processing is carried out on the basis of consent, this can be revoked at any time for the future. To exercise your rights, you can contact our data protection officer, the Dresden Institute for Data Protection, at datenschutz[at] (further contact details at In addition, every data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR if it is suspected that the personal data is being processed unlawfully.

With regard to the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that, in order to obtain comprehensive measures, these should at best be addressed directly to the respective operator of the social network. Only the operators have access to all of the collected personal data of the users and can accordingly provide more comprehensive information and take any measures. If you require assistance in this regard, you can of course contact our data protection officer at any time.
