    • DHL is solely responsible for the content that DHL posts on this page (such as information about our company, products, services, sweepstakes, campaigns) and for our interaction with visitors to our profile.
    • The operators of the social media platform operate the entire IT infrastructure of the platforms. It makes its privacy policy available to users and has its own separate relationship with registered users of the platform. The operators of the social media platforms are solely responsible for all data protection topics involving your user profile, to which we have no access.
    • We have no influence over the data processing by the operators of social media platforms who collect them. Furthermore, we have no information regarding the extent to which, the purposes for which or the length of time that the operators of the social media platforms store personal data and possibly analyze, link or transfer them to third parties.
    • Please note that your personal data can, under certain circumstances, also be processed outside of the European Union/European Economic Area.

    • Please see the respective privacy policies and cookie policies for the social media platforms to learn more about their data processing activities and how you can exercise your rights vis-á-vis the operators of the social media platforms.






    • If you would like to contact DHL directly – in other words, without the involvement of the social media platforms – please use the contact service on our website.

    2. Contacting the data controller and data protection officer

    DHL is the data controller for the information it posts and also for the data processing that falls in its area of responsibility for the following social media presences:

    To the extent that it concerns the processing of personal data as part of page insights, the following platform operators are jointly responsible, along with us, for data processing. Joint data processing is based on an agreement between the joint controllers pursuant to Article 26 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    3. Purpose and legal basis of processing

    3.1. Data processing in connection with our social media presences

    We make use of our social media presences to inform you about, for example, our company, products, services, campaigns and sweepstakes and to interact with you regarding various topics and respond to your inquiries. The data processing performed in this connection is undertaken to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in public relations work and communication.

    The social media platform operator publishes the information you provide on our profile, such as comments, likes, images and videos, and we process this information solely for the abovementioned purposes. We reserve only the right to erase illegal content should this be necessary. This applies, for example, to posts that constitute infringements of the law or are unlawful, hate comments, suggestive comments (explicitly sexual content) or attachments (such as images or videos), which under circumstances violate copyrights, privacy rights, criminal law or Deutsche Post AG’s ethics rules.

    3.2. Data processing of page insights for statistical purposes

    The social media platform operators from Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn provide us with page insights, for which we are jointly responsible together with the platform operators. Page insights are anonymous statistics that are generated as a result of certain events and are tracked by social media platforms via cookies and similar technologies when a user such as you interacts with our social media profile. We can use the page insights, which contain no personal data, to see which content is particularly accessed by which group of individuals. This allows us to optimize our social media presence. This represents a legitimate interest on our part for the processing that takes place. The legal basis for data processing related to page insights is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. We would like to point out that data processing can also take place independent of whether you are logged in or registered on the social media platform.

    We use social media monitoring in order to obtain a picture of how our business, our products and our services are viewed and, based on this, identify potential for improvement. This entails analyzing posts on the social media platform based on the channel links used and relevant hashtag links. Only those posts to which you allow full public access will be used for this. The legal basis for processing personal data as part of social media monitoring is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR because we have a legitimate interest in identifying in freely accessible statements possible deficits in our products or services and responding appropriately. 

    4. Rights of the data subject

    You may exercise your rights as set forth in this Privacy Notice by using our contact form.

    If you would like to exercise your rights as a data subject vis-à-vis the social media platform operators, please use the contact options provided by the platform operators on the social media platforms.

For instance, your data is saved in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. In certain cases, your personal data is encrypted by Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) during transmission. This means that an approved encryption procedure is used for communication between your computer and the DHL servers if your browser supports SSL. We ensure that there are strict physical access controls in our buildings and certified data centers.

As a part of our security strategy, we have set up auditing programs to make sure that our systems and services comply with the DHL information security policy, and by extension the ISO 27001 standard.

In addition, we are taking a number of ongoing measures to reduce risk, such as (but not limited to) training our employees regularly and organizing incident simulation exercises by our Cyber Defense Center.

Should you wish to contact DHL by e-mail or contact forms, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of (e-mail) messages can be read by third parties. We therefore recommend you send us confidential information only by post.
