Privacy policy and imprint for the KPMG Law social media channels

Status 10/2022

Privacy policy

Our business is based on trust. For KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, the protection of personal data (data protection) is a high priority. KPMG Law complies with all applicable data protection laws and also strives to continuously improve data protection. The following privacy notice relates to the publicly accessible social media presences that KPMG Law maintains to communicate with users and to provide information about KPMG Law’s activities:

I. General Information on the KPMG Law Social Media Presence

1. what personal data is processed, by whom, for what purpose and on what legal basis?

1.1 Data processing by KPMG Law

KPMG Law collects and uses personal data of visitors to KPMG Law social media presences at the websites listed under para. II within the framework of the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 DS-GVO, i.e. insofar as the EU DS-GVO or another legal provision permits this or the user has consented to the processing.

Any visitor can contact KPMG Law via the contact options provided (e.g. e-mail contact) by direct message. This can also be done via the options provided by the respective providers (see Section II) by means of a public message that can be viewed by other users, or by means of a private message that can only be viewed by KPMG Law. The data transmitted to KPMG Law in this context will only be processed for the purpose of responding to the respective request.

Visitors to KPMG Law social media presences have the opportunity there to use the available interactive functionalities such as like buttons, sharing posts or comment functions. In this case, KPMG Law as well as other visitors may see personal data such as account names and the information entered.

The information provided under para. II providers regularly provide KPMG Law with statistical data (called “Insights” in the case of Facebook, for example). This data does not generally allow KPMG Law to draw conclusions about individual visitors, but it does provide KPMG Law with a statistical overview of data such as visitor numbers, page views, profile or link clicks, the reach of posts, information on the categorization of visitors, such as origin (city, country), age and gender structures, and interests. Twitter also provides KPMG Law with the user name of the respective user in the categories “Top mention” and “Top follower” on a monthly basis.

Unless expressly stated otherwise, KPMG Law will retain personal data for as long as is necessary to carry out the purposes set out above. This is subject to statutory retention obligations. KPMG Law employees are instructed to regularly review the duration of the storage of personal data and to delete it if necessary.

1.2 Data processing by social media providers

The information provided under para. II mentioned providers process user data for their own purposes, such as market research and advertising purposes, and create user profiles based on user behavior for this purpose. This may also capture non-logged-in users. For this purpose, among other things, so-called cookies are used, which are stored on the end devices of the users. KPMG Law points out that data may be processed by the respective providers outside the EU / EEA. KPMG Law does not have any influence on the data processing by the companies listed under para. II and refers for further information and setting options (e.g. opt-out) to the respective information provided by the providers and described under Sec. II listed information.

2. what data protection rights do data subjects have?

Data subjects are generally entitled to information rights pursuant to Art. 15 EU GDPR about the processing of your personal data, rights to rectification of inaccurate data (Art. 16 EU GDPR), erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR), restriction of processing and data portability of the data brought in (Art. 18, 20 EU GDPR) as well as the right to object to use for marketing purposes as well as on the basis of processing based on a legitimate interest (Art. 21 EU GDPR).

Data subjects may contact KPMG Law at any time for this purpose. Inquiries relating to the items listed under no. 1.2 described processing operations can only be answered by the respective social media providers (see section II), as KPMG Law does not have access to this information.

In addition, there is also a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority. Data subjects may address their complaint to the authority of their place of residence, but in principle also to any other data protection supervisory authority.
