Google Analytics uses the analysis cookies noted above. The Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The data collected are anonymous to us as the operator of this website. We cannot draw any conclusions regarding users’ identity.

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that Google truncates (shortens) your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring it to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet.

We have entered into a contract for processing of data with Google.

You can object to the processing of data by Google at any time by using the opt-out plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or via the ad display settings: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated .

Use of Social Media Plugins

Social media plugins connect the website with social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. Social media plugins are integrated into websites. The content is shared in further social channels. These plugins are small buttons, including the Facebook “Like” button or the “Share” button of Twitter, Google, Instagram, etc. Activities on the part of users who are not logged in or members of these sites can also be tracked in this way. This is because user data are automatically shared with the social network channels that are represented on the page when these pages are accessed.

Use of AdmiralCloud

Our website uses embedded videos of the service “AdmiralCloud.” The service provider is mmpro.film- und medienproduktion GmbH, Fidicinstraße 3, 10965 Berlin, Germany. AdmiralCloud is a platform that, among other things, enables playback of audio and video files.

When you access a page of our website, the player embedded there establishes a connection to AdmiralCloud to ensure the technical transfer of the video or audio file. Data are transferred to mmpro.film- und medienproduktion GmbH when the connection to AdmiralCloud is established.

The use of AdmiralCloud takes place in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offerings. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.

For information on the purpose and scope of the collection of data, the further processing and use of the data by mmpro.film- und medienproduktion GmbH, and your rights in this regard and possible settings to protect your privacy, please see the mmpro.film- und medienproduktion GmbH privacy policy.

Visiting our online presence on social media

We maintain an online presence within social networks and on platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, potential customers, and users who are active there and inform them there about our services.

Please note that user data may be processed outside the territory of the European Union during the course of these activities. This may give rise to risks for users because it could be more difficult for users to assert their rights, for example.

Furthermore, users’ data are typically processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user behavior and the interests of users indicated by that behavior can be used to create use profiles. These use profiles can in turn be used to serve ads that are presumed to match users’ interests on and off these platforms, for example. For these purposes, cookies are typically stored on users’ computers, storing their use behavior and interests. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the use profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the platforms in question and are logged in there).

For detailed information on the relevant types of processing and the possibilities of objecting (opting out), please see the information from the providers that is linked below.

In the case of inquiries concerning access to information and the assertion of user rights as well, please note that it is most effective to raise these matters with the providers. Only the specific provider has access to users’ data and can take appropriate action directly and provide access to information. Should you still need help even after contacting the providers, please feel free to contact us.

Security

We take organizational and technical measures to ensure that those of your data that we process are protected against manipulation, loss, destruction, and access by unauthorized persons. We adjust the security measures we take to this end to reflect the state of the art on an ongoing basis.

Erasure of your personal data

We erase your personal data as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed them ceases to apply. Storage takes place beyond that point in time only if this is necessary according to the laws, regulations, or other legal provisions of the European Union or a Member State of the European Union to which we are subject.

Rights of data subjects

Please note that as the data subject, you have the following rights in conjunction with the processing of your personal data:

  • Right of access pursuant to Article 15 GDPR
  • Right to rectification pursuant to Article 16 GDPR
  • Right to erasure pursuant to Article 17 GDPR
  • Right to restriction of processing pursuant to Article 18 GDPR

If you have consented to the processing of your personal data by us, you are free to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time.

Finally, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you and to processing which is based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR (data processing on the basis of weighing of interests). If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

The lawfulness of processing of your personal data up until the withdrawal of consent is not affected by the withdrawal thereof. Withdrawal of consent also does not affect the possible further processing of these data on a different legal basis, for example to meet legal obligations (see the section titled “Legal basis for processing.”

If you consider that the processing of your personal data violates legal provisions, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority with jurisdiction pursuant to Article 77 GDPR.
