Social Networks

The German Cancer Society takes the current debate about privacy on social networks very seriously. It is currently not conclusively clarified whether all networks offer their services in line with European data protection laws.

We do therefore expressly point out: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Xing, LinkedIn and Google - used bei German Cancer Society - store the data of its users (for example, personal information, IP address, etc.) according to their data usage guidelines and use them to use for business purposes.

The DKG does not affect the collection of data and their further use by the social networks. There are no findings about the extent to which, in what place and for how long the data is stored. There are no insights into how networks fulfill existing extinguishing obligations, on which evaluations and links to be made with the data and to whom the data is shared.
