General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) and 7 GDPR, when you have consented to us processing your data; in this Privacy Policy and in the cases of consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, we will inform you in detail and each time for what purposes and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our website – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour, setting up profiles for advertisement purposes and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

Inventory Data

We collect inventory data as far as it is necessary to establish, negotiate or amend a contract (including one without remuneration) between us and the user. This can be: customer data (for example name, address), contact data (for example e-mail address, phone number), service data (for example services ordered, duration, payment). Upon establishing the user relationship, we will ask you for this data (for example name, address and e-mail address) and will also tell you which of the information is required to establish the user relationship.

Usage Data

We also collect usage data to allow users to use the services on our website. These may consist of: usage information (for example visited websites or parts, duration of visit, interest in services), content data (for example data, text, images, sounds, videos entered or uploaded by you), meta data (for example identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and insofar as it is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only put together usage data pseudonymously and only insofar as you have not objected. You may send this objection to the address indicated in the “About Us” section or the responsible authority indicated in this Privacy Policy at any time.

The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the website and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

Hoster

Raidboxes

Our Website is presented in the Internet by a service provider. We use the service of Raidboxes GmbH, Hafenstraße 32, 48153 Münster, Germany. We have concluded a data processing agreement with our provider. With this contract, our provider is obliged to process the data according to our instructions. You can find more information on data processing at our provider in his privacy policy at https://raidboxes.io/datenschutzerklaerung/. The legal basis for this data processing is on the one hand our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, and, on the other hand, our contractual or pre-contractual legal relationship in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
Furthermore, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, each time the website is used; this is information which is automatically transferred by your browser. In detail, this data consists of:

  • your IP address
  • type and version of your browser
  • host name
  • time of visit
  • the page from which you came to our page
  • name of the page opened
  • exact time of usage as well as
  • the amount of data transferred

This data will only be used for statistical purposes and do not allow us to identify you as a user.“

First Contact through Electronic Request

If you contact us in electronic form (for example by mail, fax, phone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data which you have given us (for example name, contact information, content of the request). This is based on our legitimate interest in an effective communication with customers in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR and, as far as it concerns a request to enter into or to perform a contract, also with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
We will only pass on this data to third parties as far as required for the performance of the contract (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR), by the overwhelming interest in effective services (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or based on your consent (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) or if there is another legal permission or obligation.
You may ask us at any time and without any cost to provide information about the purpose of the processing, the origin and the recipient, if any, of your data. You may also request that we correct, delete or limit the processing of your personal data. You may object against the (further) processing of your data at any time and you have a right for the data to be made transferable as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory agency.
In general, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. A longer storage is an option, in particular when required in order to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or when there is a statutory duty to keep the data longer (for example record-keeping under tax law, statute of limitations).

Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage Period

Generally, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Storage beyond that is possible in particular if it is still required for pursuing our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours.
For your inventory data which were necessary to perform a contract (including one without remuneration), this means that we store this data until the complete performance or termination of the contractual relationship plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an adequate extra time for potential interruptions of the limitation period.
For your usage data which was collected in the course of your use of the website, this means that we will store it only for the time still required for the proper functionality of our website and as long as we still have a legitimate interest. Statistical information will be primarily stored by us in pseudonymous form.
Beyond that, we still store your data for as long as we are required to do so by law. This concerns in particular the tax-law requirements to keep records, usually for 6 or even 10 years.

Users‘ Rights

You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.

Deletion, Correction, Limitation

You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data. This applies in particular if the reason for processing the data is no longer valid, if a required consent has been revoked and there is no other legal basis or if our data processing is unlawful. We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.

Objection

The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:
Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Data Transfer

You may request us to transfer the data stored about you in machine-readable form.

Complaint

If you feel that our data processing has violated any of your rights, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory agency (here you find a list of the agencies).

Changes to the Privacy Policy

If and when factual or legal reasons will compel us to amend the Privacy Policy, we will update this page accordingly. This will not change the consent provided by the user.

Blog / Comments

Comments

If you comment something on our page, we will save your IP address to make sure that only lawful comments will be published. After reviewing and allowing the comment by us, this data will be deleted. We will also save your comment as well as the information entered together with it (for example user name or e-mail address).

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you provide to us by filling in the comment field. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example by unsubscribing, contact form or e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the comment is saved, for as long as required for us to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or for as long as we are required by law to keep your data.

Newsletter

Mail Chimp

If you subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we will inform you in detail about the information you will receive, which of your data will be stored and what it will be used for. We will not pass on your data to third parties and we will only use it to mail the newsletter.

We will only mail you the newsletter if you have given us your prior permission. To that purpose, you will receive an e-mail from us with a link and further instructions and our request for your consent. By clicking on this link, you declare your consent to receiving the newsletter and our advertising.

Because we are legally obligated to record your permission as part of the so-called double opt-in, your order of the newsletter, the mailing of our e-mail of consent and your consent by clicking on the link will be recorded and saved with location and time as well as with your IP address.
The basis for the storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant to us by registering for the newsletter. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example through the contact form or an e-mail or the unsubscribe button in each e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred until that point.

For mailing the newsletter, we use (based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect processing of our customer information and analysis) the provider MailChimp (Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) from the USA.
This means, your data will be exportet to the USA. We have concluded a data processing agreement including the EU standard contractual clauses with our newsletter provider, in which he guarantees to protect your data in compliance with the GDPR and manage your data solely as ordered by us.

In our newsletter, we will also explicitly ask you to provide your consent to transferring data to MailChimp and to the USA. You will declare that consent by clicking on the link, but you may revoke it at any time. For the handling of your data at MailChimp, we refer you to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.
MailChimp will only use your data for mailing the newsletter and for evaluating that mailing on our behalf. In addition to that, MailChimp will only use your data to improve their own service. But MailChimp will not use the data to contact you directly or to pass on your data to third parties.

The mails used by MailChimp contains a “web beacon“, which will inform MailChimp about the opening of the newsletter and/or the clicking on a link contained therein by you. As part of that process, information regarding your browser, your location and your IP address will be transmitted to MailChimp. This information will be used to optimise our communication with you.

Our newsletter provider will also use this data for purposes of analysis and optimisation of their own service, but only in pseudonymised form (meaning that your identification is not possible). But your data will not be used by the provider to contact you directly.

Your data will remain stored for as long as you are stored in our mailing list, the storage is required to enforce our rights or it is necessary for our legitimate interest or we are required by law to keep your data.

Social Media

We refer with links to our social media presences. When you follow any such link to the social media site, your data will be broadcasted to that site.

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use plugins of the social network LinkedIn, provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, as a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Ct.

Thus, your data may be forwarded to the USA.

We have neither knowledge of, nor any influence on the possible collection and processing of your data by LinkedIn. Further information can be found in LinkedIn’s privacy policy at: https://www.LinkedIn.com/legal/privacy-policy?_l=de_DE. For the general approach to cookies and their deactivation as well as regarding the passing of data to third parties, particularly to the USA, we refer you to our general information in this Privacy Policy.

Social Media Videos

Youtube (Two Click)

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR we use YouTube, a service provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland in order to embed videos.
To protect your data, we have installed a two-click solution. That way, Google won’t learn about your visit once you access our website, but only once you actually click the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged in at YouTube, Google may attribute your use to your user account.

The data collected by Google may be transferred by Google to countries outside of the EU, in particular to the USA.

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use the provider SoundCloud Global Limited & Co. KG, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany, for embedding sound files. Normally, once you call up a website with embedded sound files, your IP address will be forwarded to the provider and cookies will be installed on your computer. But we use a two-click solution, so that the provider will only learn of your IP address and your visit on our website once you have clicked on the button. If you use the plugin while being logged in with the provider, the provider can attribute your use to your user account.

We do not know which data the provider will then collect and use, nor do we have any influence on it. You will find more information in the provider’s privacy policy at https://soundcloud.com/pages/privacy. We also refer you to our general instructions on cookies and their deactivation in this privacy policy.

Because Soundcloud exchanges data within the company group and with third parties, this may lead to your data being transmitted to the UK. Therefore, we have concluded a data-processing agreement with Soundcloud, according to which Soundcloud will only process your information in accordance with our instructions. This data-processing agreement also states that Soundcloud must only transmit data to the UK within the framework of the standard contractual clauses.
Furthermore an adequacy decision of the European Commission of June 28th, 2021 does exist, which can be viewed here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/files/decision-adequate-protection-personal-data-united-kingdom-general- data-protection-regulation_de.

Normally, when you access a page with embedded sound files, your IP address will be sent to the provider and cookies will be placed on your computer.

We don’t know which data the provider will then collect and how they will use it, nor do we have any influence over this. You will find more information about this in the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy/

Our Social Media Fan Page(s) – General Information

Beside our website, we also use fan page(s) on social media platforms. Above, we have already informed you about the data processing on our website and we have in particular made sure that the fact alone that you access our website is not yet forwarded to the social media platform. Following the ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018 about social media presences, we want to inform you about the data processing during your visit to our social media fan page(s):

On the basis of our legitimate interest in a timely customer communication pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR as well as for advertising and public relations purposes, we present ourselves and our offers on social media fan page(s).

Our social media fan page(s) usually can be accessed online independently of you having a user account with the relevant platform or not. But in either case, your data will be processed by the social media platform.

Each time the social media platform is accessed, your IP address will be collected and stored. Usually, a cookie will also be placed on your page, which will save your visit and further data about your visit to the social media platform.

If you are logged in with the social media platform, your visit will also be spotted by a cookie or through other technological means and will be attributed to your user account. Thus, the social media platform is usually able to analyse your user behaviour. In this process, a user profile with your interests is generated, which the social media platform will use to provide you with a user experience tailored to your interests, in particular advertisement tailored to your interests within and outside of the social media platform – even across different devices, if applicable. Your data may also be used for market research. For the details, we refer you to the following privacy policies of the social media platform(s) used by us.

We can usually also use the data of the social media platform in order to allow you to use our fan page in accordance with your interests or to approach you with advertising.

When you interact with our fan page and if you are logged in with the relevant social media platform, according to the social media page’s terms of use, we can usually also recognise your user profile and see your content.
If you do not want this, we point you to our explanations about cookies above, with general information about cookies and their deactivation. There, we have laid out in general terms how you can prevent or limit cookies being stored on your devices. Further information about the respective social media platform can be found hereinafter.

According to the aforementioned ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018, we are always jointly responsible for our social media fan page(s) together with the relevant social media platform. This means that you may also exercise your general rights, which we have listed in detail above under the heading “Users’ Rights”, against us. To that purpose, we refer you to our contact details at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. Please keep in mind, though, that we have no conclusive knowledge of the exact scope of the processing of your data by the social media platform and have even less influence on it. Therefore, we kindly ask you to contact the relevant social media platform in the first place regarding your rights.

We generally leave your data on the social media platform and do not import it onto our server. But if that should occur, our general information regarding the storage period will apply.

Further information about the processing of your data and the storage period on the social media platform can be found in the respective privacy policy of the social media platform, which we have listed hereinafter.
