      Protect Your Privacy – and the Privacy of Others

      Before you post personal information about yourself or others, make sure you know who will be reading or could read this information. If you are not sure about this, you can usually find the necessary information in the profile settings of the social network.

      Only publishing material that is safe to be seen by the general public can serve as a general rule.

      Specific Recommendations on Protecting Privacy:

      1. Be aware that even if you don’t have many followers on Instagram, Twitter etc., your posts are accessible to the public. They appear in search engines and can be linked or copied. 
      2. You should check your lists of contacts regularly in order to monitor who has access to your profile.
      3. You should avoid using functions of any social network that take over control of any privacy setting. For instance, do not automatically invite the contacts in your e-mail address book to become Facebook friends, because you hand your friends’, colleagues’ and family members’ personal information over to Facebook without their knowledge or permission. 
      4. Please remember that WhatsApp and Snapchat are not allowed on mobile phones provided by Continental.
      5. Public bookmarks and link collections (like Pinterest) provide insight into your preferences and interests. In combination, these services reveal a lot about your personal life. A bookmark can be listed as “private” if you do not want to share these personal details with the general public. 
      6. If you feel your privacy is being violated please first clarify directly with the person responsible for the post.

      When in doubt, just ask!  >

      We use cookies to provide you with the best experience on our website. Click on "Accept all" to allow all cookies or "Change cookie settings" to decide individually.

      Note: If you consent to the use of performance cookies, you also consent to the transfer of your personal data to insecure third countries (e.g. to the USA). These insecure third countries do not provide a level of data protection comparable to EU standards. In the case of certain third party providers, such as Google and Mouseflow, no other guarantees are offered to compensate for this deficit. There is therefore a risk that the transmission of your personal data may result in state authorities accessing your personal data without you having effective legal protection options.

      For more information on performance technologies and the transfer of data to third countries, please refer to the privacy policy.

      By clicking the "Accept all" button, you explicitly consent to this. Consent can be revoked at any time by changing the cookie settings. The further processing of data already collected before revocation by the third-party provider cannot be excluded.
