2. Collection, processing and usage of personal data by Bosch Connected Industry

We, as operators of the Company Page on Facebook, process your personal data if you contact us with messages or requests, as well as in the context of posts on our Company Page. We process this data for the purpose of public relations and communication.

  • We can select the target group for which our Facebook fan page and our individual posts published on our fan page are intended. The settings are adjusted based on general parameters (e.g. age group, language, region, interests), which makes it possible to address specific groups with our contents. It is not possible to address or identify individual persons based on the adjustments of the settings Facebook allows us to make.
  • Facebook grants us access to statistical analyses that provide information on the use of our fan page. The analyses to which we have access are not suited to individually analyze the browsing habits of selected persons. We merely have access to aggregated data (such as the number of visits, number of likes, number of followers, region of origin, age group, gender) that provide information on our clientele and the use of our fan page. For more information on the statistics provided by Facebook please visit https://de-de.facebook.com/business/a/page/page-insights.

We cannot influence Facebook's data processing in any other ways. We process these data in order to publish contents on our fan page addressing the appropriate target group and to better understand and optimize the use of our fan page.

Legal basis: Legitimate interest on our part, especially in order to be able to contact you regarding your requests or posts, as well as to be able to identify usage preferences (e.g. number of followers, number of visits to individual page areas, user statistics by age, geography and language) and to be able to adapt and improve the offer on our LinkedIn page as far as possible in line with the target group in accordance with data protection and competition law requirements.

2.2.2 Communication tools we use to communicate with you

You can send us messages on Facebook. When you send us a message on Facebook, we receive the following data from Facebook:

  • Incoming message
  • Name
  • Profile picture
  • Attachments
  • Voice messages

Using these data allows us to process your query and to offer you support (for example, via our fan page you can send us questions regarding our products which we will then answer). We also use these data in an aggregated and anonymized form in order to better understand how our fan page is used. In this regard, we can analyze what groups of persons (e.g. end customers, private individuals, employees) use the communication channels offered on our fan page in what countries and in what language. The processed personal data is deleted 180 days upon receipt of your message the latest.

We will forward the personal data you provide to the Bosch legal entity responsible for the processing of your query (for example, in the event your query refers to a product that is distributed by another Bosch legal entity). The responsible Bosch entity may be located outside the EEA. In such cases, we will transfer your personal data to recipients that are located outside the EEA in so called third countries. In such cases, prior to the transfer we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection exists. You are entitled to receive an overview of third country recipients and a copy of the specifically agreed-provisions securing an appropriate level of data protection. For this purpose, please use contact information provided in our data protection notice referenced above.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) or, if applicable, an existing contractual relationship (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR).

The messages you send us on Facebook are also processed by Facebook. For more information on how Facebook processes data please see Facebook's privacy policy referred to above.
