If you contact us via our social media channels, we process those data that you provide to us, as well as those data that are necessary to process the request (Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO).

You can revoke your consent at any time vis-à-vis the provider of the respective platform with effect for the future.

  • Followers: number and stored profiles; information about growth and development over a defined time frame.
