5. postbox

The users of our “forevermind” app maintain the contact data of persons as message recipients in order to deliver messages created for them via the “Postbox”. This means that the users of the app who make use of this message delivery function solely determine the purpose and means of the processing of personal data stored there and are responsible to this extent for the processing of this personal data.

If you are a contact person as a message recipient of a user whose personal data is processed in this way, please direct corresponding inquiries about data protection or the assertion of data subject rights under data protection law to the user.

6. embedded YouTube videos

a) We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are available at and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is a service of Google Inc. The videos are all embedded in “extended data protection mode”, which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. At the same time, only a preview image loaded from our own web server is displayed.

Only when you play the videos, the data mentioned under point II 1 are transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission. The data transfer takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account.

b) YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

c) The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the underlying promotional purpose. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the relevant cookies is based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO , or § 25 I TTDSG); the consent can be revoked at any time. If you do not wish to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out of YouTube before starting the video. You also have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this. Further information on data processing, in particular on the legal basis and storage period by YouTube, can be found in the provider’s privacy policy. There you will also find further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy:

7. online presence in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services there.

We have no influence on the collection of data and its further use by the social networks. There is no knowledge of the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored, to what extent the networks comply with existing deletion obligations, what evaluations and links are made with the data and to whom the data is passed on. We therefore expressly draw your attention to the fact that your data (e.g. personal information, IP address) will be stored by the operators of the networks in accordance with their data usage guidelines and used for business purposes.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for the users because, for example, the enforcement of the users’ rights could be made more difficult.

Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in providing users with effective information and communicating with users in accordance with Art. 6 para. (1) lit. f. DSGVO . If the users are asked by Forevermind or the respective providers of the platforms for consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.

For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the objection options, we refer to the information of the providers linked below.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.

III. Cooperation with processors and third parties

In some cases, we use external service providers (processors) to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by instructions and are regularly monitored. These are external service providers who provide us with technical support (web hosters, programmers). This is done on the basis of order processing contracts pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO.

Otherwise, we only pass on your data to third parties if:

  • You have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter a GDPR,
  • the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • there is a legal obligation for disclosure according to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter c GDPR, or
  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the fulfillment of contractual relationships with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

A commissioning of service providers in a third country only takes place if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are fulfilled.

IV. Rights of data subjects

You have the right:

  • in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO to request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
  • in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO to immediately demand the correction of incorrect or completion of your personal data stored by us;
  • pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO to request the erasure of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;
  • to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
  • pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller;
  • complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your habitual residence or place of work or the place of the alleged infringement for this purpose.

V. Right to object

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

VI. Right to revoke consent under data protection law

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.
