II. Data Protection Information for Customers, Prospects, and Business Partners
1. Purposes and Legal Bases of Processing
We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), to the extent that it is necessary for the establishment, execution, fulfillment of contracts, as well as for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the initiation or execution of a contractual relationship or as part of pre-contractual measures, the processing is lawful under Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. If you grant us explicit consent for the processing of personal data for specific purposes (e.g., sharing with third parties, evaluation for marketing purposes, or promotional contact via email), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent under Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. A given consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

If applicable, we will inform you separately about the legitimate interest, as required by law.
2. Personal Data
We only process data that is relevant to the establishment of the contract or pre-contractual measures. This may include general information about you or individuals within your company (name, address, contact details, etc.), as well as any additional data you provide us during the contract initiation process.
3. Sources of Data
We process personal data that we receive from you during contact or contract initiation, or through the use of our website forms.
Within our company, we only share your personal data with departments and individuals who require the data to fulfill contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests. Your personal data is processed on our behalf based on data processing agreements according to Article 28 GDPR. In these cases, we ensure that the processing of personal data is in compliance with the provisions of the GDPR. The categories of recipients in these cases include internet service providers, as well as providers of customer management systems and software. Data may be shared with recipients outside the company only if permitted or required by legal regulations, if the sharing is necessary for the contract’s fulfillment or pre-contractual measures at your request, if we have your consent, or if we are legally obligated to provide information. Under these circumstances, recipients of personal data may include:
- External tax consultant
- Public authorities and institutions (e.g., public prosecutor’s office, police, supervisory authorities, tax authorities) in cases of legal or regulatory obligations,
- Recipients to whom sharing is directly necessary for the establishment or fulfillment of contracts, such as Microsoft employees or employees of other project-related software providers.

1. Introduction and General Information about Data Processing
The protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. In the following, you will find information about how we handle your data collected through your use of our social media profiles on social networks and platforms. The processing of your data is carried out in accordance with legal regulations.

You can view this agreement at the following links:
2. Independent Responsibility of Platform Providers
If your personal data is processed by the social media platform providers listed below, this processing is carried out under the independent responsibility of the platform operator according to Article 7 No. 4 GDPR. For asserting your data subject rights, we would like to point out that these rights can be most effectively exercised with the respective platform providers. Only they have access to the data collected from you. If you still require assistance, please feel free to contact us at any time.

1.2. Disclosure and Recipients, Data Transfer to Third Countries
If b4dynamics transfers personal data to the providers of social media platforms, the latter are recipients of the data within the meaning of Article 4 No. 9 GDPR. Since the visit and interaction with the social media platforms we use involve the transmission of personal data to the USA, additional safeguards are necessary to ensure the level of data protection required by the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed on standard data protection clauses pursuant to Article 46(2)(c) GDPR with the providers of all social media platforms we use. These clauses obligate the data recipients in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe.
1.3. Access to and Storage of Information on End Devices (Cookies)
When you access our Facebook fan page or our other social media presences, one or more cookies are set on your end device by the platform provider. Cookies are small text files that are either temporarily stored for the duration of a session (session cookies) or stored permanently (persistent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Persistent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them manually or an automated solution by your web browser occurs.
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or language settings). Other cookies are used to analyze user behavior or display advertisements.
By interacting with our Facebook fan page or other social media presences, there may be access to information (e.g., your IP address) or storage of information (e.g., cookies) on your end devices. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data under the scope of the GDPR.
1.4. Data Processing for Market Research and Advertising Purposes
In general, personal data on the company’s page is processed by the provider of the social media platform for market research and advertising purposes. For this purpose, a cookie is set in your browser, allowing the respective provider to recognize you when you visit a website. Additionally, the provider extensively analyzes your interactions on the social media platform. Usage profiles can be created based on the collected data. These profiles are used to display advertisements both within and outside the platform that are presumed to match your interests. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices you use. This is typically the case if you are a member of the respective platforms and logged in. Further information on this can be found in the privacy information of the respective provider.
Collection of Information about who has viewed our Social Media Presence: Depending on the provider and your settings on the platform of the provider, we may also be informed about who has accessed our presence or page within the platform. The LinkedIn provider provides us with information about which LinkedIn user has visited our LinkedIn presence. This information is provided to us by LinkedIn indefinitely and without time limitations.
1.5. Data Processing when Contacting Us
We collect personal data ourselves when you, for example, contact us via a contact form or through a messenger service of the respective platform, such as the Facebook Messenger. The data collected depends on the information you provide as well as the contact details you provide or authorize. These data will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for follow-up questions. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request according to Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, as well as Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, if your inquiry aims at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after the final processing of your request, unless there are legal retention obligations. We consider the processing as finalized if the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
1.6. Data Processing for Contractual Execution
If your contact via a social network or another platform aims at concluding a contract for the delivery of goods or the provision of services with us, we process your data to fulfill the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures or to provide the desired services. The legal basis for processing your data in this case is Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. Your data will be deleted when they are no longer required for the execution of the contract or when it is determined that pre-contractual measures will not lead to a contract that corresponds to the purpose of the contact. Please note that even after the conclusion of the contract, it may be necessary to store personal data of our contractual partners in order to fulfill contractual or legal obligations.
1.7. Data Processing based on Consent
If you are asked by the respective platform providers to give consent for processing for a specific purpose, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(a), Art. 7 of the GDPR. A given consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
2. Processing in Joint Responsibility with the Social Media Platform Operator
2.1. Facebook Fan Page (Insights Functionality)
Data Processing Regarding “Page Insights” When Visiting Our Facebook Fan Page
When you visit our Facebook fan page, personal data about you is processed by both Facebook as the platform operator and b4dynamics as the fan page operator. To the extent that this data processing is related to the “Page Insights” functionality of Facebook (Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. or Meta Platforms Inc.), we are jointly responsible with Facebook for this processing (Article 26(1) of the GDPR).
Page Insights (https://www.facebook.com/business/a/page/page-insights) is a function provided by Facebook that allows the operator b4dynamics of a Facebook fan page to obtain aggregated data about visitor interactions. Page Insights may be based on personal data collected in connection with visits or interactions of individuals on or with our page and related content. Please be aware of the personal data you share with us through Facebook. Your data may be processed for market research and advertising purposes, even if you are not logged into Facebook or do not have a Facebook account. For instance, user profiles can be created based on user behavior and derived interests. These user profiles can then be used to display advertisements within and outside the platforms that are presumed to match users’ interests. This data collection is done through cookies stored on your device. Furthermore, data in user profiles can also be stored independently of the devices used by users, especially when users are members of the respective platforms and are logged into them.
b4dynamics only receives aggregated data from Facebook, which does not allow conclusions to be drawn about individual persons. The processing of your personal data by b4dynamics is carried out for advertising or marketing purposes (e.g., increasing the reach and awareness of our fan page through targeted design of posts, evaluating the success of marketing campaigns).
The legal basis for processing your personal data in connection with your visit or interaction with our Facebook fan page is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in using aggregated information about interactions with our Facebook fan page for advertising purposes.
Please note that we do not have control over the data collection and further processing under Facebook’s responsibility. As a result, we cannot provide information about the extent, location, and duration of data storage by Facebook. Additionally, we cannot provide details about the extent to which Facebook complies with existing deletion obligations, the analyses and correlations made with the data by Facebook, and to whom Facebook’s data is disclosed.
Your rights as an affected person in data processing
As a visitor to the page, if you wish to exercise your rights (access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, complaint to the supervisory authority, objection, or revocation), you can contact both Facebook and us. You can independently adjust your advertising settings in your user account. To do this, click on the following link and log in:

2.2. LinkedIn Presence
Data processing regarding “Page Insights” when visiting our LinkedIn presence
When you visit our LinkedIn presence, personal data about you is processed by LinkedIn as the platform operator, as well as by b4dynamics as the operator of our presence within the platform. To the extent that this data processing is carried out in connection with the Insights functionality of LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company or LinkedIn Corporation), we are jointly responsible with LinkedIn (Article 26(1) GDPR).
LinkedIn Page Insights (https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum) is a feature provided by LinkedIn that allows the operator b4dynamics of a LinkedIn presence to receive aggregated data about visitor interactions.
Within the context of the Page Insights function, LinkedIn analyzes your interaction with our LinkedIn presence and also utilizes the personal information you provide (professional activity, industry, country, etc.). The evaluated data is provided to us by LinkedIn, but only in aggregated form (meaning that LinkedIn does not provide us with specific information about individual users within this function, but rather only aggregated information). We use these aggregated data for the targeted presentation of our LinkedIn presence, as well as for its optimization in relation to the aforementioned advertising purposes.
We have a legitimate interest in pursuing these mentioned advertising purposes, and the processing of your data is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Please note that we do not have control over the data collection and further processing that occurs under LinkedIn’s responsibility. Therefore, we cannot provide information about the extent, location, and duration of data storage by LinkedIn. Additionally, we cannot provide information about LinkedIn’s compliance with existing deletion obligations, the analyses and correlations conducted with the data by LinkedIn, and to whom LinkedIn shares the data.
Your rights as an affected person in data processing
If you, as a visitor of the page, would like to exercise your rights (access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, complaint to the supervisory authority, objection or withdrawal), you can contact both LinkedIn and us. You can also restrict the visibility of your LinkedIn account towards us through the LinkedIn settings.
