5. (A)Social media

I would like to share my work with you and the world on various social media platforms. However, these providers have their own definitions of data protection and often do not comply with the GDPR. I have no influence on the processing of personal data on the respective platforms. These platform operators usually store cookies on your computer and use your data for market research and advertising purposes and also evaluate your usage and surfing behavior. This data processing may also affect users who are not registered with the respective platform. Some of these platform operators are based outside the European Union, which may make it more difficult to enforce your rights.
The processing of your personal data when you visit one of my dusty social media offerings is based on my legitimate interest in a diverse external presentation of my work and an effective means of providing information and communicating with you. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. You may also have given your consent to data processing to a platform operator, in which case your legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Art. 1 lit. a GDPR is the legal basis.
