3. Purpose and scope of data processing
M&C Travel Events is present in social networks in order to present itself to their users and to communicate with them. The M&C Travel Events YouTube channel is primarily used as a marketing tool to present the company and its services to external.
YouTube members have the opportunity to make public contact with M&C Travel Events. This is done through a public comment on the M&C Travel Events corporate channel. Personal contact is voluntary and, in all cases, comes from the user.
M&C Travel Events uses personal data exclusively to analyse user behaviour via the statistics provided by YouTube and to communicate with the user, provided that the user has started contacting M&C Travel Events via the public comment function.
YouTube provides users‘ personal data in an aggregated and anonymous form. The following information is provided by YouTube, for example: followers, reach, demographics of the users. These statistics do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual users. Information about information on personal data can therefore only be requested directly via YouTube. M&C Travel Events can only view the public information of the users. The user himself determines this information in his private settings. In addition, the user has the option to actively hide likes or to stop following the M&C Travel Events corporate channel. For more information, go to https://www.youtube.com/account_privacy
The deletion of the data by M&C Travel Events takes place after the purpose no longer applies. M&C Travel Events has no influence on data deletion by YouTube. For more information, go to https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de#infodelete
When visiting the YouTube channel of M&C Travel Events, user data can be processed outside of the European Union. In principle, German or European data protection law does not apply in these jurisdictions. This can make it more difficult to enforce users‘ personal rights. US providers who are certified for the Privacy Shield have committed to complying with EU data protection standards. M&C Travel Events is subject to YouTube’s data protection requirements and has no influence on how YouTube uses personal data such as surname, first name, IP addresses, etc. of users. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by YouTube as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in YouTube’s data protection information https://www.youtube.com/account_privacy
The processing of the users‘ personal data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. As the operator of a presence in a social medium, M&C Travel Events has a legitimate interest in effectively informing users and communicating with users. If the user has consented to the data processing – for example by clicking a checkbox – the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
The data guideline published by Google as the provider of the ‚YouTube‘ service provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data. It also explains which setting options Google and YouTube offer to protect the privacy of the person concerned. More about the basic privacy settings and functions under https://policies.google.com/privacy. Google has submitted to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shields and agrees to meet the data protection standards of the European Union.

When you visit the M&C Travel Events YouTube channel, YouTube, as the person responsible, collects personal data from users. Such data collection by YouTube can also take place from visitors to this page who are not logged in or registered with YouTube. YouTube usually uses and processes user data for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from user behaviour and the resulting interests of the user. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside YouTube that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer, in which the usage behaviour and the interests of the user are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of YouTube and are logged in to them).
In the case of requests for information and the enforcement of user rights, it is pointed out that this can done most effectively directly against Google. Only Google has access to user data and can take appropriate action and provide information directly.
M&C Travel Events provides the user also alternative communication options – outside of the network – to get in touch with the company (website, telephone, e-mail, etc.)
4. Google Cookies
5. Youtube comment function
If a user leaves a public comment on the M&C Travel Events YouTube channel, this only reflect the user’s opinion. M&C Travel Events dissociates itself from any statements made by third parties and accepts no liability or guarantee for the correctness and completeness of the content or links in the comments. M&C Travel Events reserves the right to delete user content (comments) that is inadmissible and/or contrary to common decency and/or infringes the rights of other users at any time.
6. Exposure of your data on the Internet
Both on the Internet in general and on social media platforms, there is the possibility of worldwide access or retrieval of the data and images, even from countries in which there is no or insufficient data protection standard. As the operator of this offer, M&C Travel Events can neither influence the access to your data via the Internet nor the use of this data and in this respect also assume no guarantee for the observance of data protection in this environment.
With suitable search engines, personal data can be found on the Internet and the people depicted in images can also be identified under certain circumstances. This also makes it possible to create personality profiles by merging this data and information with other data available on the Internet and to open up additional options for use, for example for advertising purposes. Due to the possibilities of worldwide retrieval and storage of the data by other bodies or persons, further use by other bodies or persons or being found via archive functions of search engines cannot be ruled out in the event of a request for deletion and despite the removal of your data and images.
