Privacy statement for our social media pages

Here you will find our general privacy statement for the web page

In the following we would like to inform you about the handling of your data according to Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  

We, Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH and Regio Stuttgart Marketing- und Tourismus GmbH, operate the following social media pages:
- Twitter: und
- Facebook:
- Facebook:
- YouTube: und
- Pinterest:
- Instagram:
- Google+:
- LinkedIn:

You can find our contact details in our imprint .

In addition to us, there is also the operator of the social media platform itself. In this respect, the latter is a further controller who processes data, whom we can, however, only influence to a limited extent. Where we can influence and parameterise the data processing, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us to effect privacy-compliant handling by the operator of the social media platform. In many areas, however, we cannot influence data processing by the operator of the social media platform, neither do we know exactly which data is being processed by the operator.

Data processing by us
The data posted by you on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc., are published by the social media platform and are never used or processed by us for any other purpose. We merely reserve the right to delete content where necessary. We may share your content on our site if it 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 paragraph (1) lit. (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation. Data is processed in the interest of our public relations and communications.

If you wish to object to particular data processing over which we have control, please contact us using the contact details provided in the imprint. We will then review your objection.

If you submit an inquiry to us on the social media platform, we may, depending on the required response, also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality. You may always send us confidential inquiries to our address stated in the imprint.

As already explained, where the operator of the social media platform gives us the opportunity to do so, we take special care to make our social media pages as privacy-compliant as possible. We can influence only to a limited extent, and we cannot disable, the statistics that the operator of the social media platform provides to us. However, we take care to ensure that no additional optional statistics are provided to us.     

Data processing by the operator of the social media platform
The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. Web tracking can be performed regardless of whether you are logged into or registered with the social media platform. As already explained, the web tracking methods of the social media platform are regrettably, for the most part, beyond our control. For example, we cannot disable these methods.  

Please take note: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to analyse your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. In this respect, we have no control over the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.  
For more information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and further objection options, please consult the provider's privacy statement:
