2. Hos­ting

We are hos­ting the con­tent of our web­site at the fol­lo­wing pro­vi­der:

Exter­nal Hos­ting

This web­site is hos­ted extern­al­ly. Per­so­nal data coll­ec­ted on this web­site are stored on the ser­vers of the host. The­se may include, but are not limi­t­ed to, IP addres­ses, cont­act requests, meta­da­ta and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, con­tract infor­ma­ti­on, cont­act infor­ma­ti­on, names, web page access, and other data gene­ra­ted through a web site.

The exter­nal hos­ting ser­ves the pur­po­se of ful­fil­ling the con­tract with our poten­ti­al and exis­ting cus­to­mers (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR) and in the inte­rest of secu­re, fast, and effi­ci­ent pro­vi­si­on of our online ser­vices by a pro­fes­sio­nal pro­vi­der (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). If appro­pria­te con­sent has been obtai­ned, the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TDDDG, inso­far the con­sent includes the sto­rage of coo­kies or the access to infor­ma­ti­on in the user's end device (e.g., device fin­ger­prin­ting) within the mea­ning of the TDDDG. This con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

Our host(s) will only pro­cess your data to the ext­ent neces­sa­ry to ful­fil its per­for­mance obli­ga­ti­ons and to fol­low our ins­truc­tions with respect to such data.

3. Gene­ral infor­ma­ti­on and man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on

Data pro­tec­tion

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very serious­ly. Hence, we hand­le your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on and in com­pli­ance with the sta­tu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

When­ever you use this web­site, a varie­ty of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be coll­ec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on explains which data we coll­ect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which pur­po­se the infor­ma­ti­on is coll­ec­ted.

We here­wi­th advi­se you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e., through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be pro­ne to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly pro­tect data against third-par­ty access.

Infor­ma­ti­on about the respon­si­ble par­ty (refer­red to as the “con­trol­ler” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this web­site is:

BRE­MER BAROCK­OR­CHES­TER GbR
Swant­je Tams Frei­er
Braut­str. 3-4
28199 Bre­men, Deutsch­land

Pho­ne: 0421 - 49174053
E-mail: kontakt@​bremer-​barockorchester.​de

The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral per­son or legal enti­ty that sin­gle-han­dedly or joint­ly with others makes decis­i­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g., names, e-mail addres­ses, etc.).

Sto­rage dura­ti­on

Unless a more spe­ci­fic sto­rage peri­od has been spe­ci­fied in this pri­va­cy poli­cy, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­po­se for which it was coll­ec­ted no lon­ger appli­es. If you assert a jus­ti­fied request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted, unless we have other legal­ly per­mis­si­ble reasons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g., tax or com­mer­cial law reten­ti­on peri­ods); in the lat­ter case, the dele­ti­on will take place after the­se reasons cea­se to app­ly.

Gene­ral infor­ma­ti­on on the legal basis for the data pro­ces­sing on this web­site

If you have con­sen­ted to data pro­ces­sing, we pro­cess your per­so­nal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2)(a) GDPR, if spe­cial cate­go­ries of data are pro­ces­sed accor­ding to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. In the case of expli­cit con­sent to the trans­fer of per­so­nal data to third count­ries, the data pro­ces­sing is also based on Art. 49 (1)(a) GDPR. If you have con­sen­ted to the sto­rage of coo­kies or to the access to infor­ma­ti­on in your end device (e.g., via device fin­ger­prin­ting), the data pro­ces­sing is addi­tio­nal­ly based on § 25 (1) TDDDG. The con­sent can be revo­ked at any time. If your data is requi­red for the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res, we pro­cess your data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Fur­ther­mo­re, if your data is requi­red for the ful­fill­ment of a legal obli­ga­ti­on, we pro­cess it on the basis of Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR. Fur­ther­mo­re, the data pro­ces­sing may be car­ri­ed out on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest accor­ding to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Infor­ma­ti­on on the rele­vant legal basis in each indi­vi­du­al case is pro­vi­ded in the fol­lo­wing para­graphs of this pri­va­cy poli­cy.

Infor­ma­ti­on on the data trans­fer to third-par­ty count­ries that are not secu­re under data pro­tec­tion law and the trans­fer to US com­pa­nies that are not DPF-cer­ti­fied

We use, among other tech­no­lo­gies, tools from com­pa­nies loca­ted in third-par­ty count­ries that are not safe under data pro­tec­tion law, as well as US tools who­se pro­vi­ders are not cer­ti­fied under the EU-US Data Pri­va­cy Frame­work (DPF). If the­se tools are enab­led, your per­so­nal data may be trans­fer­red to and pro­ces­sed in the­se count­ries. We would like you to note that no level of data pro­tec­tion com­pa­ra­ble to that in the EU can be gua­ran­teed in third count­ries that are inse­cu­re in terms of data pro­tec­tion law.

We would like to point out that the US, as a secu­re third-par­ty coun­try, gene­ral­ly has a level of data pro­tec­tion com­pa­ra­ble to that of the EU. Data trans­fer to the US is the­r­e­fo­re per­mit­ted if the reci­pi­ent is cer­ti­fied under the “EU-US Data Pri­va­cy Frame­work” (DPF) or has appro­pria­te addi­tio­nal assu­ran­ces. Infor­ma­ti­on on trans­fers to third-par­ty count­ries, inclu­ding the data reci­pi­ents, can be found in this Pri­va­cy Poli­cy.

Reci­pi­ents of per­so­nal data

In the scope of our busi­ness acti­vi­ties, we coope­ra­te with various exter­nal par­ties. In some cases, this also requi­res the trans­fer of per­so­nal data to the­se exter­nal par­ties. We only dis­c­lo­se per­so­nal data to exter­nal par­ties if this is requi­red as part of the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract, if we are legal­ly obli­ga­ted to do so (e.g., dis­clo­sure of data to tax aut­ho­ri­ties), if we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the dis­clo­sure pur­su­ant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR, or if ano­ther legal basis per­mits the dis­clo­sure of this data. When using pro­ces­sors, we only dis­c­lo­se per­so­nal data of our cus­to­mers on the basis of a valid con­tract on data pro­ces­sing. In the case of joint pro­ces­sing, a joint pro­ces­sing agree­ment is con­cluded.

Revo­ca­ti­on of your con­sent to the pro­ces­sing of data

A wide ran­ge of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revo­ke at any time any con­sent you have alre­a­dy given us. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to the lawful­ness of any data coll­ec­tion that occur­red pri­or to your revo­ca­ti­on.

Right to object to the coll­ec­tion of data in spe­cial cases; right to object to direct adver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PRO­CES­SED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARI­SING FROM YOUR UNI­QUE SITUA­TI­ON. THIS ALSO APPLI­ES TO ANY PRO­FIL­ING BASED ON THE­SE PRO­VI­SI­ONS. TO DETER­MI­NE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PRO­CES­SING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEA­SE CON­SULT THIS DATA PRO­TEC­TION DECLA­RA­TI­ON. IF YOU LOG AN OBJEC­TION, WE WILL NO LON­GER PRO­CESS YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSI­TI­ON TO PRE­SENT COM­PEL­LING PRO­TEC­TION WORT­HY GROUNDS FOR THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUT­WEIGH YOUR INTE­RESTS, RIGHTS AND FREE­DOMS OR IF THE PUR­PO­SE OF THE PRO­CES­SING IS THE CLAI­MING, EXER­CIS­ING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTIT­LE­MENTS (OBJEC­TION PUR­SU­ANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA IS BEING PRO­CES­SED IN ORDER TO ENGA­GE IN DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA FOR THE PUR­PO­SES OF SUCH ADVER­TI­SING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLI­ES TO PRO­FIL­ING TO THE EXT­ENT THAT IT IS AFFI­LIA­TED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA WILL SUB­SE­QUENT­LY NO LON­GER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING PUR­PO­SES (OBJEC­TION PUR­SU­ANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).

Right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry agen­cy

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jects are entit­led to log a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry agen­cy, in par­ti­cu­lar in the mem­ber sta­te whe­re they usual­ly main­tain their domic­i­le, place of work or at the place whe­re the alle­ged vio­la­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings available as legal recour­ses.

Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

You have the right to have data that we pro­cess auto­ma­ti­cal­ly on the basis of your con­sent or in ful­fill­ment of a con­tract han­ded over to you or to a third par­ty in a com­mon, machi­ne-rea­da­ble for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­ther con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

Infor­ma­ti­on about, rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and era­di­ca­ti­on of data

Within the scope of the appli­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of your data at any time. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to cont­act us at any time.

Right to demand pro­ces­sing rest­ric­tions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­ti­on of rest­ric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may cont­act us at any time. The right to demand rest­ric­tion of pro­ces­sing appli­es in the fol­lo­wing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pu­te the cor­rect­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usual­ly need some time to veri­fy this cla­im. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we rest­rict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unlawful man­ner, you have the opti­on to demand the rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data ins­tead of deman­ding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any lon­ger and you need it to exer­cise, defend or cla­im legal entit­le­ments, you have the right to demand the rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of its era­di­ca­ti­on.
  • If you have rai­sed an objec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned who­se inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have rest­ric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, the­se data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to cla­im, exer­cise or defend legal entit­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal enti­ties or for important public inte­rest reasons cited by the Euro­pean Uni­on or a mem­ber sta­te of the EU.

SSL and/or TLS encryp­ti­on

For secu­ri­ty reasons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on pro­gram. You can reco­gni­ze an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is acti­va­ted, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Rejec­tion of unso­li­ci­ted e-mails

We here­wi­th object to the use of cont­act infor­ma­ti­on published in con­junc­tion with the man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on to be pro­vi­ded in our Site Noti­ce to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that we have not express­ly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reser­ve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, for ins­tance via SPAM mes­sa­ges.

4. Recor­ding of data on this web­site

Coo­kies

Our web­sites and pages use what the indus­try refers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small data packa­ges that do not cau­se any dama­ge to your device. They are eit­her stored tem­po­r­a­ri­ly for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or they are per­ma­nent­ly archi­ved on your device (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted once you ter­mi­na­te your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain archi­ved on your device until you actively dele­te them, or they are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­di­ca­ted by your web brow­ser.

Coo­kies can be issued by us (first-par­ty coo­kies) or by third-par­ty com­pa­nies (so-cal­led third-par­ty coo­kies). Third-par­ty coo­kies enable the inte­gra­ti­on of cer­tain ser­vices of third-par­ty com­pa­nies into web­sites (e.g., coo­kies for hand­ling pay­ment ser­vices).

Coo­kies have a varie­ty of func­tions. Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly essen­ti­al sin­ce cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the absence of the­se coo­kies (e.g., the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vide­os). Other coo­kies may be used to ana­ly­ze user beha­vi­or or for pro­mo­tio­nal pur­po­ses.

Coo­kies, which are requi­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tran­sac­tions, for the pro­vi­si­on of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g., for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or tho­se that are neces­sa­ry for the opti­miza­ti­on (requi­red coo­kies) of the web­site (e.g., coo­kies that pro­vi­de mea­sura­ble insights into the web audi­ence), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless a dif­fe­rent legal basis is cited. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of requi­red coo­kies to ensu­re the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­rage of the coo­kies and simi­lar reco­gni­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies has been reques­ted, the pro­ces­sing occurs exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of the con­sent obtai­ned (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TDDDG); this con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

You have the opti­on to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the accep­tance of coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases. You may also exclude the accep­tance of coo­kies in cer­tain cases or in gene­ral or acti­va­te the dele­te-func­tion for the auto­ma­tic era­di­ca­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­t­ed.

Which coo­kies and ser­vices are used on this web­site can be found in this pri­va­cy poli­cy.

Con­sent with Borlabs Coo­kie

Our web­site uses the Borlabs con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to obtain your con­sent to the sto­rage of cer­tain coo­kies in your brow­ser or for the use of cer­tain tech­no­lo­gies and for their data pri­va­cy pro­tec­tion com­pli­ant docu­men­ta­ti­on. The pro­vi­der of this tech­no­lo­gy is Borlabs GmbH, Rüben­kamp 32, 22305 Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny (her­ein­af­ter refer­red to as Borlabs).

When­ever you visit our web­site, a Borlabs coo­kie will be stored in your brow­ser, which archi­ves any decla­ra­ti­ons or revo­ca­ti­ons of con­sent you have ente­red. The­se data are not shared with the pro­vi­der of the Borlabs tech­no­lo­gy.

The recor­ded data shall remain archi­ved until you ask us to era­di­ca­te them, dele­te the Borlabs coo­kie on your own or the pur­po­se of sto­ring the data no lon­ger exists. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to any reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons man­da­ted by law. To review the details of Borlabs’ data pro­ces­sing poli­ci­es, plea­se visit https://​de​.borlabs​.io/​k​b​/​w​e​l​c​h​e​-​d​a​t​e​n​-​s​p​e​i​c​h​e​r​t​-​b​o​r​l​a​b​s​-​c​o​o​k​ie/

We use the Borlabs coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to obtain the decla­ra­ti­ons of con­sent man­da­ted by law for the use of coo­kies. The legal basis for the use of such coo­kies is Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly coll­ects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. The infor­ma­ti­on com­pri­ses:

  • The type and ver­si­on of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miza­ti­on of the operator’s web­site. In order to achie­ve this, ser­ver log files must be recor­ded.

Cont­act form

If you sub­mit inqui­ries to us via our cont­act form, the infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded in the cont­act form as well as any cont­act infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded the­r­ein will be stored by us in order to hand­le your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this infor­ma­ti­on wit­hout your con­sent.

The pro­ces­sing of the­se data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is rela­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is neces­sa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of the requests addres­sed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been reques­ted; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

The infor­ma­ti­on you have ente­red into the cont­act form shall remain with us until you ask us to era­di­ca­te the data, revo­ke your con­sent to the archi­ving of data or if the pur­po­se for which the infor­ma­ti­on is being archi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g., after we have con­cluded our respon­se to your inquiry).

6. News­let­ter

News­let­ter data

If you would like to recei­ve the news­let­ter offe­red on the web­site, we requi­re an e-mail address from you as well as infor­ma­ti­on that allows us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the e-mail address pro­vi­ded and that you agree to recei­ve the news­let­ter. Fur­ther data is not coll­ec­ted or only on a vol­un­t­a­ry basis. For the hand­ling of the news­let­ter, we use news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­ders, which are descri­bed below.

Cle­ver­Reach

This web­site uses Cle­ver­Reach for the sen­ding of news­let­ters. The pro­vi­der is the Cle­ver­Reach GmbH & Co. KG, Schaf­jü­cken­weg 2, 26180 Ras­tede, Ger­ma­ny (her­ein­af­ter “Cle­ver­Reach”). Cle­ver­Reach is a ser­vice that can be used to orga­ni­ze and ana­ly­ze the sen­ding of news­let­ters. The data you have ente­red for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to our news­let­ter (e.g., e-mail address) are stored on ser­vers of Cle­ver­Reach in Ger­ma­ny or in Ire­land.

News­let­ters we send out via Cle­ver­Reach allow us to ana­ly­ze the user pat­terns of our news­let­ter reci­pi­ents. Among other things, in con­junc­tion with this, it is pos­si­ble how many reci­pi­ents actual­ly ope­ned the news­let­ter e-mail and how often which link insi­de the news­let­ter has been cli­cked. With the assis­tance of a tool cal­led Con­ver­si­on Track­ing, we can also deter­mi­ne whe­ther an action that has been pre­de­fi­ned in the news­let­ter actual­ly occur­red after the link was cli­cked (e.g., purcha­se of a pro­duct on this web­site). For more infor­ma­ti­on on the data ana­ly­sis ser­vices by Cle­ver­Reach news­let­ters, plea­se go to: https://​www​.cle​ver​reach​.com/​e​n​/​f​e​a​t​u​r​e​s​/​r​e​p​o​r​t​i​n​g​-​t​r​a​c​k​i​ng/.

The data is pro­ces­sed based on your con­sent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may revo­ke any con­sent you have given at any time by unsub­scrib­ing from the news­let­ter. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to the lawful­ness of any data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions that have taken place pri­or to your revo­ca­ti­on.

If you do not want to per­mit an ana­ly­sis by Cle­ver­Reach, you must unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. We pro­vi­de a link for you to do this in every news­let­ter mes­sa­ge.

The data depo­si­ted with us for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter or the news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­der and dele­ted from the news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list after you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. Data stored for other pur­po­ses with us remain unaf­fec­ted.

After you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­der in a black­list, if such action is neces­sa­ry to pre­vent future mai­lings. The data from the black­list is used only for this pur­po­se and not mer­ged with other data. This ser­ves both your inte­rest and our inte­rest in com­ply­ing with the legal requi­re­ments when sen­ding news­let­ters (legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). The sto­rage in the black­list is inde­fi­ni­te. You may object to the sto­rage if your inte­rests out­weigh our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest.

Data pro­ces­sing

We have con­cluded a data pro­ces­sing agree­ment (DPA) for the use of the abo­ve-men­tio­ned ser­vice. This is a con­tract man­da­ted by data pri­va­cy laws that gua­ran­tees that they pro­cess per­so­nal data of our web­site visi­tors only based on our ins­truc­tions and in com­pli­ance with the GDPR.

7. Plug-ins and Tools

You­Tube with expan­ded data pro­tec­tion inte­gra­ti­on

This web­site inte­gra­tes vide­os from the You­Tube web­site. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­t­ed (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

When you visit one of the­se web­sites on which You­Tube is inte­gra­ted, a con­nec­tion to the You­Tube ser­vers is estab­lished. This tells the You­Tube ser­ver which of our pages you have visi­ted. If you are log­ged into your You­Tube account, you enable You­Tube to assign your sur­fing beha­vi­or direct­ly to your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your You­Tube account.

We use You­Tube in exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. Accor­ding to You­Tube, vide­os that are play­ed in exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode are not used to per­so­na­li­ze brow­sing on You­Tube. Ads that are play­ed in exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode are also not per­so­na­li­zed. No coo­kies are set in exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. Ins­tead, so-cal­led local sto­rage ele­ments are stored in the user's brow­ser, which con­tain per­so­nal data simi­lar to coo­kies and can be used for reco­gni­ti­on. Details on the exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode can be found here: https://​sup​port​.goog​le​.com/​y​o​u​t​u​b​e​/​a​n​s​w​e​r​/​1​7​1​780.

After acti­vat­ing a You­Tube video, fur­ther data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons may be trig­ge­red over which we have no influence.

The use of You­Tube is based on our inte­rest in pre­sen­ting our online con­tent in an appe­al­ing man­ner. Pur­su­ant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, this is a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest. If appro­pria­te con­sent has been obtai­ned, the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TDDDG, inso­far the con­sent includes the sto­rage of coo­kies or the access to infor­ma­ti­on in the user’s end device (e.g., device fin­ger­prin­ting) within the mea­ning of the TDDDG. This con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

When you call up a page, your brow­ser loads the requi­red fonts into its brow­ser cache to dis­play texts, fonts, and sym­bols cor­rect­ly. For this pur­po­se, the brow­ser you use must con­nect to the ser­vers of Font Awe­so­me. This allows Font Awe­so­me to know that your IP address has been used to access this web­site. The use of Font Awe­so­me is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the type­face on our web­site. If appro­pria­te con­sent has been obtai­ned, the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TDDDG, inso­far the con­sent includes the sto­rage of coo­kies or the access to infor­ma­ti­on in the user’s end device (e.g., device fin­ger­prin­ting) within the mea­ning of the TDDDG. This con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port Font Awe­so­me, a stan­dard font from your com­pu­ter will be used.

Our social media appearan­ces

This pri­va­cy poli­cy appli­es to the fol­lo­wing social media pre­sence

Data pro­ces­sing through social net­works

We main­tain publicly available pro­files in social net­works. The indi­vi­du­al social net­works we use can be found below.

Social net­works such as Face­book, Twit­ter etc. can gene­ral­ly ana­ly­ze your user beha­vi­or com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly if you visit their web­site or a web­site with inte­gra­ted social media con­tent (e.g., like but­tons or ban­ner ads). When you visit our social media pages, num­e­rous data pro­tec­tion-rele­vant pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are trig­ge­red. In detail:

If you are log­ged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the ope­ra­tor of the social media por­tal can assign this visit to your user account. Under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tances, your per­so­nal data may also be recor­ded if you are not log­ged in or do not have an account with the respec­ti­ve social media por­tal. In this case, this data is coll­ec­ted, for exam­p­le, via coo­kies stored on your device or by recor­ding your IP address.

Using the data coll­ec­ted in this way, the ope­ra­tors of the social media por­tals can crea­te user pro­files in which their pre­fe­ren­ces and inte­rests are stored. This way you can see inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing insi­de and out­side of your social media pre­sence. If you have an account with the social net­work, inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing can be dis­play­ed on any device you are log­ged in to or have log­ged in to.

Plea­se also note that we can­not retrace all pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons on the social media por­tals. Depen­ding on the pro­vi­der, addi­tio­nal pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons may the­r­e­fo­re be car­ri­ed out by the ope­ra­tors of the social media por­tals. Details can be found in the terms of use and pri­va­cy poli­cy of the respec­ti­ve social media por­tals.

Legal basis

Our social media appearan­ces should ensu­re the widest pos­si­ble pre­sence on the Inter­net. This is a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The ana­ly­sis pro­ces­ses initia­ted by the social net­works may be based on diver­gent legal bases to be spe­ci­fied by the ope­ra­tors of the social net­works (e.g., con­sent within the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Respon­si­bi­li­ty and asser­ti­on of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Face­book), we, tog­e­ther with the ope­ra­tor of the social media plat­form, are respon­si­ble for the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons trig­ge­red during this visit. You can in prin­ci­ple pro­tect your rights (infor­ma­ti­on, cor­rec­tion, dele­ti­on, limi­ta­ti­on of pro­ces­sing, data por­ta­bi­li­ty and com­plaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the ope­ra­tor of the respec­ti­ve social media por­tal (e.g., Face­book).

Plea­se note that despi­te the shared respon­si­bi­li­ty with the social media por­tal ope­ra­tors, we do not have full influence on the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons of the social media por­tals. Our opti­ons are deter­mi­ned by the com­pa­ny poli­cy of the respec­ti­ve pro­vi­der.

Sto­rage time

The data coll­ec­ted direct­ly from us via the social media pre­sence will be dele­ted from our sys­tems as soon as you ask us to dele­te it, you revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­po­se for the data sto­rage lap­ses. Stored coo­kies remain on your device until you dele­te them. Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons - in par­ti­cu­lar, reten­ti­on peri­ods - remain unaf­fec­ted.

We have no con­trol over the sto­rage dura­ti­on of your data that are stored by the social net­work ope­ra­tors for their own pur­po­ses. For details, plea­se cont­act the social net­work ope­ra­tors direct­ly (e.g., in their pri­va­cy poli­cy, see below).

Your rights

You have the right to recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on about the ori­gin, reci­pi­ent and pur­po­se of your stored per­so­nal data at any time and free of char­ge. You also have the right to object, the right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty and the right to file a com­plaint with the respon­si­ble regu­la­to­ry agen­cy. Fur­ther­mo­re, you can request the cor­rec­tion, blo­cking, dele­ti­on and, under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tances, the rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
