Online presence in social media

Something Vintage maintains an online presence within social networks and platforms to communicate with customers and users and to inform them about the services.

The website usually processes your data for market research and advertising purposes.

E.g. social media creates user profiles from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users.

For these purposes, the platform typically stores cookies on your computer, in which it stores your behaviour and your interests. In the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular, if you are a member of the respective platforms, and you are logged in to them).
