    Processing of personal data by Twitter

    Twitter is a service provided by Twitter Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, U.S.A.

    We have no control over the nature or scope of the data processed by Twitter Inc. or over the forwarding of data to third parties. Nor do we have any way of checking this.

    With this in mind, we would like to point out that when you use the services provided by Twitter Inc. and all associated functions (e.g. sharing and evaluating content), you do so on your own responsibility. Information about the data processing operations carried out by Twitter Inc. and the corresponding purposes pursued can be found in the privacy policy of Twitter Inc. You can find Twitter's privacy policy at: https://twitter.com/de/privacy

    Your data is collected by Twitter Inc. and is then transmitted, stored, disclosed and used. Data is transferred to the United States, Ireland and any other country in which Twitter Inc. does business, regardless of your country of residence.

    Data that you have provided to Twitter voluntarily will be processed by Twitter Inc. (e.g. name and username, e-mail address, phone number or the contacts in your address book) if you upload it.

    Twitter Inc. evaluates the content you share. This allows Twitter to identify the topics you are interested in. Confidential messages that you send to other Twitter users are also processed. GPS data, information on wireless networks or your IP address are used to determine your location and to send you corresponding content, usually advertising. These evaluations are carried out with the help of analysis tools. The use of such analysis tools by Twitter is not something that we can control or influence. If Twitter Inc. uses analysis tools like these, we have not been informed about the use of such tools. As a result, we have not instructed Twitter Inc. to use these analysis tools and have not provided it with any support, etc. in this regard. Furthermore, we do not receive the results of such analyses. We can only access information that has been rendered anonymous regarding the response to tweets (clicks, likes, etc.). The use of analysis tools in our Twitter account cannot be deactivated and there are no other ways to prevent their use.

    Twitter also receives data from visitors who do not have a Twitter account when they view content on Twitter. This log data includes the user’s IP address, the browser type used, operating system, information on the website the user previously visited and the pages he/she accessed, location, mobile phone provider, cookies or search terms and the end device used.

    Twitter is also able to record visits to websites and assign them to the corresponding Twitter account if “buttons” or “widgets” have been embedded in the website concerned.

    You can opt to restrict the processing of your data by Twitter. To do so, open the general settings of your Twitter account and change your privacy settings under "Privacy and safety".

    You can control and customise your privacy settings here:
    https://twitter.com/personalization

    Additional assistance in this regard is available at:
    https://support.twitter.com/articles/105576#
    https://help.twitter.com/de/search?q=datenschutz

    You can also change certain settings for your mobile devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, etc.) so that Twitter has only limited access to your contact details, location data, calendar data or photos, for example. These possible setting differ depending on the operating system used on your mobile device.

    You can find information and help at:

    https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172711# (how to access your own data that is processed by Twitter)

    We may, however, retweet tweets that you have posted, reply to tweets from you, or post tweets that are linked to you or your Twitter account. This means that your public data can be made available to followers of our site on Twitter.
