NABU as Controller uses the technical platform and services of Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 U.S.A. for the short message service provided. Controller for the data processing of persons living within the EU using Twitter is Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Ireland.
NABU, as Controller, processes personal data via its Twitter account (see below under 2.), simultaneously a data processing by Twitter takes place (see below under 1.).
We would like to point out that you use the Twitter short message service offered here and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. share, rate).
1. Data processed by Twitter
The Controller has no influence on the type and scope of the data processed by Twitter, the type of processing and use or the transfer of this data to third parties. He also has no effective means of control in this respect.
By using Twitter, your personal information is collected, transferred, stored, disclosed and used by Twitter Inc. regardless of your residence in the United States, Ireland and any other country where Twitter Inc. does business.
For one, Twitter processes your voluntarily entered data such as name and user name, e-mail address, telephone number or the contacts in your address book when you upload or synchronize it.
Twitter also evaluates the content you share based on what topics you are interested in. The service stores and processes confidential messages that you send directly to other users. Twitter can determine your location based on GPS data, wireless network information or your IP address to send you advertising or other content.
For evaluation purposes, Twitter Inc. may use analysis tools such as Twitter Analytics or Google Analytics. The Controller has no influence on the use of such tools by Twitter Inc. and was not informed about such potential use. If tools of this kind are used by Twitter Inc. for the account of the Controller, the Controller has not commissioned, approved or otherwise supported this in any way. Also, the data obtained during the analysis will not be made available to him. Only certain, non-personal information about the tweet activity, such as the number of profile or link clicks through a particular tweet, can be viewed by the Controller via his account. Furthermore, the Controller has no possibility to prevent or disable the use of such tools on his Twitter account.
Finally, Twitter also receives information, for example, when you view content, even if you have not created an account. These are so-called "log files" and may include your IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the website and pages you previously visited, your location, your mobile operator, the device you are using (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used, and cookie information.
You can restrict the processing of your data in the general settings of your Twitter account and under the item "Privacy and security". For mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers), you can also restrict Twitter access to contact and calendar data, photos, location data, etc. in the settings there. However, this depends on the operating system used.
More information on these points is available on the following Twitter support pages:
Here you can inform yourself about the possibility of viewing your own data on Twitter: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172711#
Information about the conclusions drawn from Twitter about you can be found here:
Information about the available personalization and data protection settings can be found here (with further references):
You also have the option of requesting information via the Twitter privacy form or the archive requirements:
2. Data processed by NABU
Also NABU as Controller processes your data.
Processing is carried out for the purposes of the Controller's public relations activities in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR. This includes, in particular, informing the public about the Controller's activities and raising public awareness and education about nature and environmental issues.
The recipient of the data is initially Twitter, where it may be passed on to third parties for their own purposes and under Twitter's responsibility. The recipient of publications is also the public, i.e. potentially everyone.
The Controller himself does not collect any data about his Twitter account. Also, the integration of the Controller's tweets on his website does not transfer the IP addresses of the site visitors to Twitter Inc.
The data you enter on Twitter, in particular your user name and the content published under your account, will be processed by us to the extent that we retweet or reply to your tweets, if applicable, or write tweets from us that refer to your account. The Controller will thus include the data you freely publish and distribute on Twitter in his offer and make it accessible to his followers.
You will find this data protection notice here in the currently valid version. The corresponding link will be communicated to you via our Twitter account (regularly).
