TikTok

TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland, is responsible for collecting and further processing personal user data on TikTok’s websites. Please note that TikTok collects and processes certain information about your visit to our TikTok page even if you do not have a TikTok user account or are not logged in to TikTok. For information on the processing of personal data by TikTok, please refer to the TikTok Privacy Policy (Privacy Policy) at https://www.tiktok.com/legal/privacy-policy?lang=de.

For us as the operator of this TikTok page, only your public profile at TikTok can be viewed. Which information can be viewed here depends on your settings in your profile. In addition, we process your personal data (such as your name and the content of your messages, inquiries or other contributions to us) if you contact us via our TikTok page. We then process this data for the purpose of processing your contributions accordingly and answering them if necessary. Depending on the event and content of the interview, these processing operations are either based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), in particular in order to contact your inquiries or contributions, or on Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR, if your request is aimed at concluding a contract.

TikTok also provides us with so-called page analytics data. This data is anonymous statistics, with the help of which we can evaluate the quality of our TikTok page and our content. These statistics are compiled on the basis of usage data collected by TikTok via your interaction with our TikTok site; we have no access to these usage data.

These processing operations are based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR, in particular in order to identify preferences (e.g. number of followers, number of views of individual page sections, user statistics by age, geography and language), and can adapt and improve the offer on our TikTok page as target group-oriented as possible.

We store your personal data on our systems, i.e. outside TikTok, if and as long as they are necessary for the purposes of collection or statutory retention obligations.

You are neither legally nor contractually obliged to provide your personal data. Nevertheless, a processing of your personal data by TikTok is inevitable if you want to visit our Tiktok page.

It is conceivable that some of the information collected will also be processed outside the European Union by TikTok. In order to ensure an adequate level of data protection, TikTok relies regarding such data transfers on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, unless there is a corresponding EU Commission adequacy decision for the third country concerned.

We might use qualified service providers (dialogue marketing agencies) to design and support this TikTok site. We provide personal data to these only if this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes (e.g. answering your inquiries), in pursuit of legitimate interests or if you have consented thereto. With these service providers, we have completed the necessary data protection documents, in particular in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

You have the following rights:

  • In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to information about the personal data stored by us. This means that you have the right to request confirmation from us whether your personal data are being processed or not, and if this is the case, a right to access this personal data. The access information includes, inter alia, the processing purposes, the categories of personal data that are processed and the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed. However, this is not an absolute right and the interests of other individuals may restrict your right to access.
  • In accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you have the right to have incorrect data corrected. This means that you may require us to correct incorrect personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of processing, you have the right to request completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.
  • In accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to have your personal data erased. This means that under certain conditions you have the right to obtain from us the erasure of personal data concerning you, and we may be obliged to erase such personal data.
  • In accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data. This means that, in this case, the respective data will be marked and may only be processed by us for certain purposes (e.g. with your consent or to raise legal claims).
  • In accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, under certain circumstances, you may have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you may have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us.
  • You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority, in particular in the EU Member State of your habitual residence or in which a violation of the GDPR is claimed.

In order to exercise these rights with regard to data processing by TikTok, please contact TikTok directly via TikTok on its website contact options. In other cases, or if necessary, please send us an e-mail to com-data-protection@daimler.com

Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to object to our processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation or if personal data is used for direct marketing purposes, and we can be required to no longer process your personal data. In addition, if your personal data is processed to operate direct marketing, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. In this case, your personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes by us. To exercise your right to object, please, if possible, send us an e-mail to com-data-protection@daimler.com.

For additional information on our handling of personal data, please refer to the Daimler Privacy Policy.
