You can configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the (complete) deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot (fully) use all the functions of our website.

  • ii. Google Tag Manager

We use the so-called Google Tag Manager from Google (Google Ireland Limited Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland) on the website. The Google Tag Manager is a solution with which marketers can manage website tags via an interface. The tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not process any personal data. The tool is used for the purpose of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data.

  • (8)  Plista

We use a function on our website with plista to provide a recommendation technology. We are supported in this by plista GmbH, Torstraße 33, 10119 Berlin, Germany.

plista compares the interests of website visitors with each other and recommends the favourites of similar visitors in each case (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). For this purpose, it is necessary that plista a.) evaluates the interests and b.) can distinguish individual website visitors from each other without knowing their identity. plista compares the reading behaviour (including clicks, visits, date) of different visitors with each other. This only happens on pages on which plista is activated. Recommendations are generally made anonymously - i.e. ratings and click data are used in the algorithm, while it is not possible for third parties to see or read the data basis. In order for plista to be able to deliver the corresponding recommendations to the website visitor, which fall within his or her area of interest, plista combines this rating and click data into a usage profile and evaluates it. To provide this service, plista requires anonymous data.

Anonymous usage data provide information about website visits, clicks of a website visitor and his or her reading behaviour without any personal reference. When collecting anonymous data, it is not possible to draw any conclusions about your identity in any respect. All data is collected anonymously and protected by plista's terms of use and data protection regulations. This enables us to increase the attractiveness of our website for you and to offer you products for purchase that may interest you (our legitimate interest).

We process the data until the end of the evaluation. The provision of the data by you is neither legally nor contractually required nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You can find further information on plista's data protection here: http://www.plista.com/infos/privacy.

  • 7. online presence in social media

We maintain online presences within the so-called social media in order to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about our services there. This includes both classic social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram as well as professional networks such as LinkedIn and XING. When accessing the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data protection declarations of the respective operators apply.

Specifically, the M&P GROUP operates corresponding social media pages on:

Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mup_group/
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mullundpartnergruppe
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/mup-group/mycompany
XING: https://www.xing.com/companies/m%26pgroup
Twitter: https://twitter.com/MuP_Group
Website: www.mup-group.com

You can find our contact details in our imprint. In addition to us, there is also the operator of the social media platform itself. This operator is also a further controller (so-called joint controllership / joint responsibility) who carries out data processing over which we have only limited influence. At the points where we can exert influence and parameterise data processing, we work towards data protection-compliant handling by the operator of the social media platform within the scope of the possibilities available to us. In many places, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the operator of the social media platform.

  • a) Data processing by us:

The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc., are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. We may share your content on our site if this is a feature of the social media platform and communicate with you through the social media platform. If you perform an action on our social media pages (e.g. comments, posts, likes, etc.), you may make personal data (e.g. user name or photo of your user profile) public.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations/PR, communication and information.

If you wish to object to certain data processing over which we have control, please contact us using the contact details provided in the imprint.

If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the required response. You always have the option of sending us confidential enquiries to our address given in the imprint.

As already explained, where the provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity, we make sure that our social media pages are designed to be as data protection-compliant as possible. With regard to statistics provided by the social media platform provider, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.

  • b) Data processing by the social media operator Platform

The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already mentioned, we can unfortunately hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot, for example, switch this off.

Please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. We have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.Instagram

The M&P GROUP uses an Instagram business profile with the so-called Insights function. To improve its communication measures, M&P GROUP uses the information on impressions, reach and interaction provided via the evaluation tool. In order to perform its editorial tasks on Instagram, M&P GROUP processes data from people who actively approach M&P GROUP on Instagram: by asking questions or making comments in the comment function under M&P GROUP posts. The subscribers (followers) of M&P GROUP see your user name next to the respective comment on the M&P GROUP page and can access your profile by clicking on it. As a user, you have the option to set your account to private, so that your user profile and your posts are not publicly visible. You can find more information and explanations on data protection under https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875Facebook

The M&P GROUP has its own company page on Facebook, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also access the information offered via this page on our website at www.mup-group.com/news retrieve.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and on the settings for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: http://de- en.facebook.com/about/privacy

Facebook's full data policy can be found here: https://de- en.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us. When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses). Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie with your Facebook ID on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information that can directly identify you will be deleted. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the site (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. Once you have logged in, you will again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user. Information on how to manage or delete information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages:

You can find the current version of this data protection declaration under "Data protection" on our Facebook page.YouTube

On our website, we embed YouTube videos of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland into our website. We use the so-called "extended data protection mode" of the provider YouTube to embed videos. This mode prevents YouTube from storing cookies for a user who is viewing a website with an embedded YouTube video player with extended data protection, but does not click on the video to start playback. Only when the video is played can YouTube store cookies on your computer. However, according to YouTube, no personal cookie information is stored for playbacks of embedded videos with enhanced privacy. In principle, we have no influence on the further processing by YouTube.

Google itself is legally responsible for this. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile.

You can find more information about YouTube's data protection here: www.youtube.com/privacy. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO for the purpose of presenting our company in an appealing manner.

In addition, we use the possibility of company presences on professionally oriented networks. We maintain a company presence on the following professional networks:LinkedIn, XING and Twitter

LinkedIn, Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland

XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany

Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103
