For example, in accordance with U.S. laws, in certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in other countries may be entitled to access your personal data.
- Fan Pages. When interacting with our Fan Pages, we collect, from you, your personal identifiers (name and email address) and visual information (photograph (i.e. profile picture)), as well as any information that you provide when interacting with our Fan Pages (e.g., commenting, sharing, and rating). We use this information to advertise our products, and to communicate with users. To the extent EU data protection law applies, the legal basis for the processing is your consent. We also collect, from you, your personal identifiers (name and email address) if you sign up for one of our promotions or submit information to us through social media sites to enroll you in the promotion or communicate with you based on your submission to us. To the extent EU data protection law applies, the legal basis for this processing is the performance of a contract. See the Notice of Financial Incentive below for more information on financial incentives related to promotions.
Because our Fan Pages are publicly accessible, when you use them to interact with other users, for example by posting, leaving comments or liking or sharing posts, any personal information that you post in them or provide when registering can be viewed by others or used by them as they see fit.
The content posted on our Fan Pages or other public areas of social networking websites can be deleted in the same way as other content that you have created. If at any time you want content posted to be deleted, please email your request to email@example.com.
- Community Management. With the help of a third party, we collect, from you, your contact, including “likes”, shares, messages, and other interactions with the content, in order to analyze and evaluate how our content is perceived, to learn from it, to improve our public relations efforts, and to create lookalike audiences. We use this information to create advertisements that match our Fan Page, to disseminate them via Facebook based on demographic data, and to target individuals that have similar interests, behavior or characteristics as the people we already have targeted. To the extent EU data protection law applies, the legal basis for analyzing your content and creating advertisements is our legitimate interest in organizing, facilitating, and optimizing communication with our users and the general public. If you object to this processing of your personal information, you can submit your objection via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We also use this information to create unique offers to enhance your customer experience. To the extent EU data protection law applies, the legal basis for the processing is that it is necessary for the performance of a contract.

We use the photos for our public relations and marketing on our various media/digital media outlets. To the extent EU data protection law applies, the legal basis for processing your photos where you are the subject is your consent. You can revoke your consent with effect going forward by emailing us at email@example.com.

Facebook collects, through trackers in the browser of your device or via the advertising ID (IDFA from Apple or GAID from Google), when you open the Facebook app through your mobile device (e.g. smartphone or tablet). Facebook uses this information to provide us with statistical evaluations of the use of our Facebook Fan Page. We receive this information directly from Facebook, in the form of aggregated data and anonymous statistics regarding certain data points, such as: age; gender; city/country; device; inquiries from fans about other Facebook fan pages; region and language settings of the users; proportion of men and women; the number of people reached; clicks on posts, “Likes” and reactions; comments and shared content; and total video views.

If you object to this processing of your personal information and believe you have an overriding interest, you can submit your objection via email to email@example.com.
- Information Processed Solely by Facebook. We do not know how Facebook uses personal information for its own purposes, how long the personal information is stored on Facebook or whether Facebook data is passed on to third parties.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, Facebook automatically collects, through trackers on your device, your Facebook ID or a link between the Facebook ID and the advertising ID (IDFA from Apple or GAID from Google) when you open the Facebook app through your mobile device (e.g. smartphone or tablet). This enables Facebook to understand that you have visited our Facebook Fan Page along with other Facebook pages that you have clicked on, whether you clicked on Facebook buttons integrated into websites that partner with Facebook, and other online interactions that report user data to Facebook. Based on this data, content or advertising tailored to you can be offered.

However, this right only applies when: (i) you have provided your personal data to us; (ii) the legal basis for the processing is your consent or for the performance of a contract; and (iii) the processing is carried out by automated means.
- Right to lodge a complaint. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant Supervisory Authority.
To make exercises these rights, please contact us at IT.Web@deutschfamily.com and include “EU Data Subject Request” in the subject line or submit your request here.
Please note that, in providing services to you, we may subcontract the processing of your data to, or otherwise share your data with, DFWS affiliates and subsidiaries, trusted service providers, and trusted business partners in countries other than your country of residence, including the United States, in accordance with applicable law. Such third parties may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of Services to you, the processing of transactions, and/or the provision of support services. When we transfer your personal information to a third country which has a lower level of protection of personal data than the EU/EEA, we use the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission to ensure a sufficient level of protection for your personal data.
If applicable, you may make a complaint to the data protection supervisory authority in the country where you are based. Alternatively, you may seek a remedy through local courts if you believe your rights have been breached.

The Services are intended for adults only. We do not knowingly solicit any information from individuals under the age of sixteen (16) or people under the legal drinking age, nor do we knowingly market or otherwise target our websites or its products or services to children or people under the legal drinking age.

7. DO NOT TRACK
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third-party purposes, which is why we describe a variety of opt-out mechanisms above. However, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals.
8. DATA SECURITY
We take measures to protect your information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, or access. However, no method of transmission over the internet, and no means of electronic or physical storage, is absolutely secure. By using our Services, you acknowledge and accept that we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to, through, or on our Services and that any such transmission is at your own risk. You are responsible for keeping your account information—and especially your login information—confidential. We ask you not to share your login credentials with anyone.
