Responsible for data processing within the meaning of the data protection laws is:
Accointing Services AG
phone: +41 41 481 04 04
Data Protection Representative in the EU according to article 27 GDPR:
SIDD Datenschutz Deutschland UG (haftungsbeschränkt)
In addition to us, the respective operator of the social media platform (hereinafter referred to as the "provider") is also responsible for the data processing on our social media pages. In detail, these are:
In an agreement on joint responsibility pursuant to Article 26 of the GDPR, we have defined with Facebook how the respective tasks and responsibilities for the processing of personal data are structured and who fulfils which data protection obligations. In particular, we have determined how an appropriate level of security and your data subject rights can be ensured, how we can jointly fulfil the information obligations under data protection law and how we can monitor potential data protection incidents. This also includes how we can ensure compliance with our reporting and notification obligations. For more information on the "Page Insights" function and the main content of our agreement with Facebook, please see section 4.1.
You can reach the respective data protection officer of the persons responsible as follows:
The operators of the social media platforms are available to you as a point of contact. However, you can also assert your rights in relation to the processing operations under joint responsibility vis-à-vis us. Insofar as you contact us, we will coordinate with the respective provider in order to answer your request and ensure your data subject rights.
The object of data protection is the protection of personal data. This is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (so-called data subject). This includes information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also other information about your person that arises in the context of the use of our social media pages (e.g. connection and usage data).
We would like to point out that you use our social media pages and their functions as well as social media platforms as a whole on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. liking, commenting, sharing, rating).
We expressly draw your attention to the fact that the respective providers may also store the data of their registered users (hereinafter "users") and other interested visitors to the social media platforms (hereinafter "visitors"), e.g. personal information, IP address, cookies, etc., outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) and use it for their own business purposes.
We generally have no influence on the collection of data and its further use by the providers. The extent to which the data is stored, where it is stored and for how long, the extent to which the providers comply with existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links are made with the data and to whom the data is passed on, is neither recognizable nor influenceable for us. We therefore ask you to carefully check which personal data you disclose as a user on the social media platforms.
Alternatively, if you want to find out about our company without using social media platforms, you can access much of the information provided on our social media pages on our website https://glassnode.com.
Below you will find an overview of the purposes and legal basis of data processing. We operate our social media sites in order to inform users and visitors about our company and to exchange information with them.
Unless otherwise described below, your data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests in the economic operation, optimization and usage analysis of our social media pages and in order to communicate with you as a user/visitor and to carry out advertising activities on the social media platforms.
The use of our social media pages is partly possible without registration with the social media platforms. Even if you use the social media sites without registering, personal data may be processed.
Below you will find an overview of the type, scope, purposes and, if applicable, specific legal bases of automated data processing in the context of the use of our social media pages.
In connection with the operation of our social media pages, we use the "Insights" or "Analytics" function of the social media platforms, by means of which the provider provides us with statistical data on the use of our social media pages, which are anonymous for us, i.e. the personal data of individual users or visitors are not visible to us. We do not know in detail which data the provider uses for usage analysis in connection with our social media pages.
In connection with the operation of our Instagram pages and Facebook pages, we use the "Page Insights" function of Facebook (the provider of the services), by means of which Facebook provides us with statistical data on the use of our Instagram page, which are anonymous for us, i.e. the personal data of individual users or visitors are not visible to us. You can find out which data Facebook uses for usage analysis in connection with our Instagram page ("Page Insights data") and which information Facebook provides on data processing in connection with the Page Insights function here: https://de-de.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data.
With respect to Page Insights Data, we are jointly responsible for data processing with Facebook and have entered into a Joint Controller Agreement ("Page Insights Supplement" - https://de-de.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum) which sets out our respective obligations under the GDPR. We have agreed therein that
In particular, we receive aggregated data from LinkedIn in the following areas: Reach (impressions, page views, unique users, access to subpages), target group (demographic information), interaction (impressions, reactions, click rate, likes, shares, comments, (link) clicks, engagement rate), target group (demographic/geographic information).
From Twitter we receive following data: Reach (tweets, retweets, impressions, page views, unique users, access to subpages), target group (demographic information), interaction (impressions, reactions, click rate, likes, shares, comments, (link) clicks, engagement rate), target group (demographic/geographic information).
With respect to Page Insights Data, we are jointly responsible for data processing with LinkedIn and have entered into a Joint Controller Agreement ("Page Insights Supplement" - https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum) which sets out our respective obligations. We have agreed therein that
In connection with the operation of our Youtube and Google pages, we use the dashboard overview of Google (the provider of the services), by means of which Google provides us with statistical data on the use of our Youtube page, which are anonymous for us, i.e. the personal data of individual users or visitors are not visible to us. You can find out which data Google uses for usage analysis in connection with our Youtube page and which information Google provides on data processing in connection with the implemented functions here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=CH&hl=de#infocollect
If you contact us directly via our social media pages (e.g. by means of a personal message, messenger or a pre-filled form), the data you provide (e.g. name, e-mail address, details of your vehicle) will only be processed for the purpose of recording and, if necessary, responding to your customer/prospect enquiry.
As far as the initiation of a contractual relationship is concerned, the processing of data transmitted in the context of a direct contact via the social media platform is based on the contractual relationship. Insofar as you are asked by us for consent to data processing, e.g. by means of a checkbox in connection with forms provided by us, the legal basis for data processing in this respect is you consent, if applicable.
Since we are not aware of the confidentiality of the information you provide when contacting us directly and how it is used by the provider itself, please refrain from transmitting sensitive data or other confidential information, such as application documents or bank or credit card details, via this channel. We recommend that you use a more secure means of transmission.
If you contact us directly as part of a job application, in particular via LinkedIn page, and provide us with information about yourself, we regularly delete such requests immediately from the respective social media platform.
We may, by the nature of a social media platform, learn about users who like, subscribe to, rate, comment on or share our social media pages and posts, provided that you have made your interaction on the social media platform public and have not explicitly marked it as "private" through the social media platform's settings, if applicable. We analyze this information in aggregate form in order to provide our users and visitors with more relevant content that may be of greater interest to them. The information obtained in this way does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a natural person.
In your respective social media profile, you as a user have the option, for example, to actively hide your "posts", "tweets", "rated videos", "subscriptions", "followers", "pins" or other profile information or to no longer follow or subscribe to our social media pages. You will then no longer appear in the list of followers or subscribers of this social media page.
We are able to use demographic and geographic analyses of our target groups provided to us by the provider in order to place targeted interest-based advertisements on our social media pages or to highlight our posts without, however, obtaining direct knowledge of the identity of the user or visitor to whom the advertisements are displayed. In this case, the display of advertisements or highlighting of posts on our social media pages is carried out on the basis of an analysis of the previous usage behavior by the provider, whereby, however, we only have anonymized or pseudonymized information that regularly does not allow us to identify you personally and is not merged with any personal data stored by us at any time.
If, in the context of interest-based advertising, we exceptionally carry out a so-called extended comparison with customer lists, this will only be done after you have given us your consent.
If you as a user have linked your Instagram account to your Facebook account, you can control the extent to which your user behavior may be collected and used by Facebook (on Facebook and Instagram pages) in Facebook's advertising preferences settings (https://de-de.facebook.com/ads/preferences).
As a user of the LinkedIn platform, you can control the extent to which your user behavior may be collected and used by LinkedIn in the LinkedIn advertising settings (https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/advertising).

Within our company, only those persons have access to your personal data who need it for the purposes stated in each case. Your personal data will only be passed on to external recipients if this is permitted by law or we have your consent. Below you will find an overview of the relevant recipients:
If data is transferred to bodies whose registered office or place of data processing is not located in a member state of the European Union, another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or a state for which an adequate level of data protection has been established by a decision of the European Commission, we will ensure prior to the transfer that the transfer of data is either covered by a legal authorization, guarantees exist for an adequate level of data protection with regard to the transfer of data (e.g. by agreement on contractual guarantees or officially recognized regulations or binding internal data protection regulations at the recipient or you have given your consent to the transfer of data.(e.g. through the agreement of contractual guarantees, officially recognized regulations or binding internal data protection regulations at the recipient) or you have given your consent to the data transfer.
Where the data transfer is based on appropriate safeguards in accordance with applicable data protection law, you may obtain from us a copy of the safeguards for the existence of an adequate level of data protection in relation to the data transfer or an indication of the availability of a copy of the safeguards. Please use the information under point 1 for this purpose.
We store your personal data, if a legal permission exists for this, only as long as necessary to achieve the purposes pursued or as long as you have not revoked your consent. In the event of an objection to processing, we will delete your personal data unless further processing is still permitted under the statutory provisions. We will also delete your personal data if we are obliged to do so for other legal reasons. Applying these general principles, we usually delete your personal data immediately
We review the necessity of the personal data stored by us on the social media platforms at least once a year and carry out corresponding deletion routines, in the context of which we, for example, initiate the removal of messenger messages. However, due to the lack of technical control over the social media platforms, we cannot ensure that the social media providers will actually delete the data.
In principle, we have no influence on how the providers of the social media platforms store or delete your data on their platforms. For details, please refer to the

Please contact us at the details provided in point 1 above. Please ensure that we are able to clearly identify you.

As the operators of the social media platforms, only the providers have direct access to the necessary information and can take any necessary measures and provide information.
