How do we protect the data?
The hosting service for our website provides us with the online platform through which we can offer you our services. Your data may be stored via our hosting provider's data storage, databases and general applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall and they provide secure HTTPS access to most areas of their services.

 

Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, publish or otherwise disclose to us or others.
 

For this reason, we encourage you to set strong passwords and, whenever possible, not to provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could cause significant or lasting harm if disclosed. As email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we also ask that you do not disclose confidential information via either of these communication channels.

How do we deal with minors?
We will only use your personal data for the purposes set out in the Privacy Policy and only where we are satisfied that

 

- the use of your personal data is necessary to perform or enter into a contract (e.g. to provide you with the Services themselves or customer or technical support);
- the use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations; or
- the use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided that this is done at all times in a way that is proportionate and respects your data protection rights).

As an EU resident, you can:
- Request confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed, and request access to your stored personal data and certain additional information;
- request to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format  
  - request the correction of your personal data stored by us
  - request the erasure of your personal data;
  - object to the processing of your personal data by us;
  - request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, or
  - lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.

If you are based in the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA where we are satisfied that an adequate or equivalent level of protection of personal data exists. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have appropriate contractual arrangements in place with our third parties to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place so that the risk of unlawful use, alteration, deletion, loss or theft of your personal data is minimized and that such third parties act at all times in accordance with applicable laws.

Plugins and tools
YouTube with extended data protection
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you watch a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, 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.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your end device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can find more information about data protection at YouTube in their privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Vimeo
Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. The Vimeo server is informed which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.

If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you enable Vimeo to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.

Vimeo is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Further information on the handling of user data can be found in Vimeo's privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published in the context of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Artists' social security contribution
In addition to the fees, charges and costs plus VAT to be paid by the client, the artists' social security contribution shall be added at the respective statutory rate, which may be incurred by us for third-party services.
