When exercising such an objection, we ask you to give the reasons why we should not process your personal data in the manner we intend. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either cease to process your data, or adjust data processing, or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds for continuing to process your data.

If you leave us messages or comment on these profiles, we process your personal data to communicate with you. This represents a legitimate interest; the legal basis is art. 6 (1) 1 lit f GDPR. No further storage of communication data takes place outside these networks on our part.
