Please note that the Provider also receives data from you if you have not created a profile for the Service yourself but visit websites and apps of third parties that use the Provider's services or which offer services together with the Provider. This includes, for example, information about the websites and apps you visit, or interactions with advertisers.
The way in which the Provider uses the data collected from your visit to the Service for its own purposes, the extent to which your interactions with the Service are assigned to individual user profiles, the length of time the Provider stores this data and whether data is passed on to third parties is not clearly and conclusively answered by the Provider and is not known to us.
The fact that the Service is offered by a non-European provider who only has a European branch in Ireland means that this Provider is not bound by German data protection regulations. This may also affect your rights under Art. 15 ff. of the German Data Protection Act DSGVO (right to information, right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, right to data transfer, right of objection).
However, the Provider has committed itself to the principles of the EU-US privacy shield. Further information can be found at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000008VVzAAM&status=Active.
In the privacy settings of your profile, you also have the option to restrict how your data is processed. Information on privacy settings can be found on the following page (with further links): https://www.pinterest.de/settings/#profile.
In addition, you can use the settings available there to restrict access by the Service to contact and calendar data, photos, location data, etc. on mobile devices. However, this varies according to the operating system you are using.
We do not collect or process any data from your use of the Service ourselves. However, should we share or respond to your comments, or write postings that refer to your profile, we will also process the data you enter in the Service, in particular your (user) name and the content published under your account, to the extent that this is included in our offer and made available to our fans.
If you have any questions about the information we offer, you can contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here you can also exercise your rights as an affected person according to Art. 15 ff. of the German Data Protection Act DSGVO (right to information, right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, right to data transfer, right of objection).
