Our website uses plugins from the video portal YouTube. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use the services of this company in order to display videos about our products and our company on our website in an appealing and professional manner. The integration of YouTube videos occurs based on our legitimate interest in presenting an appealing image on our website (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). To this end, we have concluded a processing agreement with Google in which we require Google to handle personal data in compliance with data protection regulations and only based on our instructions. You can find detailed information here: https://www.youtube.com/t/terms_dataprocessing
The integration of videos could result – for reasons of technical necessity – in calling on Google servers that may be located in third-party countries outside the EU and EEA with a lower level of data protection. Google is independently responsible for the transmission and processing of data from your browser or device in this context. To keep data transmission to a minimum, we embed all YouTube videos using the “Privacy-Enhanced Mode”. As a result, data is only sent to Google if you actively click the video in order to play it.

5. Collection of data on social media
Uniprox GmbH & Co. KG operates its own channels and accounts on various social networks. We use these presences to increase awareness of our brand, to inform various target groups about new developments relating to our company and our products, and to provide interested parties with the opportunity of actively rating, commenting and sharing our posts. This falls within the scope of our legitimate interest, including the associated data processing on these platforms (in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR):
Uniprox receives regularly aggregated statistical information from the platform operators concerning visitor counts, click rates, visit durations and similar information that is provided to us as website operators in order to analyze and optimize our website. According to the current legal interpretation, the service provider and Uniprox are joint controllers for data processing in this case (for more on this, see for example www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data).
In order to directly contact us or react to our posts via social media platforms, you need to have your own account with the respective service provider. Then you will have the option of rating, commenting or sharing our posts or of following us. Through these activities, we gain knowledge of your personal data (e.g. username and other content from your profile). Please consider that these dialogs are generally public for the most part and can be viewed by a large number of people. We therefore urgently recommend that you avoid communicating any contact details, sensitive or private information etc. concerning you or third parties via these channels. We can also rate, comment and share your public posts or follow you. The associated data will be made visible to our followers and visitors. We do not intend any publication or processing beyond this scope.
In addition, you can directly send messages to us using the messenger services integrated in the platforms; these cannot be read by other users. However, we inform you that we have no knowledge of the manner and methods used by the service providers to analyze, interpret or otherwise process these messages.
As an alternative to social media and in particular to the available messenger services, you are of course welcome to access our homepage www.uniprox.de for all information concerning the company and our products. You can also find contact options here which allow you to establish non-public communication with us (e.g. contact form).
