3. Collection and storage of personal data; type and purpose of use

a) On visiting the website:

It is possible to visit our website without being required to enter personal data.

When accessing the website, however, information will automatically be sent to our website’s server via the browser used on your end device. This information will be temporarily stored in a logfile. The following information will be collected in this context without any action on your part and will be stored until the next automatic deletion process:

  • the IP address of the computer sending the enquiry
  • date and time of the server enquiry,
  • name and URL of the downloaded file,
  • website from which our website was accessed (referrer URL),
  • browser used and, if applicable, your computer’s operating system and the name of your access provider.

We will process the above data for the following purposes:

  • ensuring smooth connection to the website,
  • ensuring that the website is user-friendly,
  • evaluating system security and stability,
  • improving our offering.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest can be derived from the data processing purposes set out above. We will never use the collected data in order to draw conclusions relating to you personally.

We also use cookies and analytics services in connection with visits to our website. For more information, see sections 5 and 10 of this Privacy Notice.

b) On registering for our newsletter

On our website you have the possibility to register for a newsletter. For the registration we need your e-mail address, as well as first and last name to be able to address you personally in the newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. after your registration we send you an e-mail in which we ask you to confirm that you agree to receive the newsletter and that you have entered your e-mail address in the registration form yourself.

For the dispatch of our newsletters, we use the service “Brevo”, a newsletter dispatch service of SendinBlue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin. Brevo is a European provider that we have selected in particular also from the point of view of the DSGVO compliance of the newsletter dispatch.

Brevo makes it possible for us to analyze user response to our newsletter mailings, e.g. by displaying whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked and how often. Brevo also allows us to subdivide newsletter recipients based on various categories and better tailor them to specific target groups.

The provider “Brevo” logs the registrations and double opt-in confirmations during newsletter registration in order to document the registration process. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. In addition, the provider collects data via a cookie when our website is called up in order to ensure the technical functionality of the newsletter registration. The collected data is stored on Brevo’s servers in Germany. Brevo uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Brevo after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Likewise, any changes to your data stored by Brevo will be logged. If you do not confirm your subscription within 2 weeks, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month.

The processing of your information entered in the form is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) exclusively for the purpose of sending the requested newsletter. The technically necessary processing of the information retrieved via the cookie is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) to ensure a functional dispatch of our newsletter.

You can revoke your consent at any time for the future. To do so, use the “Unsubscribe” link provided in our newsletters or contact us directly, e.g. via the mail address datenschutz@edel.com. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

For more information about the provider, please refer to the privacy policy of Brevo at https://www.brevo.com/de/legal/privacypolicy/

c) On contacting us via e-mail or the contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form provided on our website, we will store the data you provide (your e-mail address, together with your name and telephone number, if applicable) in order to process your request or respond to your questions.

If using the contact form, you are required to give a valid e-mail address in order that we know who sent the enquiry and in order to be able to respond to it. All other information is provided on a voluntary basis.

Data relating to you contacting us is processed on the basis of voluntary consent in line with Art. 6(1) sentence 1(a) GDPR.

We will delete any data collected in this context once storage is no longer necessary (if, for instance, your enquiry has been satisfied) or we limit processing if statutory retention periods apply.

d) Terms and conditions for participation in the competition

In order to participate in a competition organised by us, certain personal data must be processed for the purpose of any notification and transmission of winnings and for your identification.

The personal data which we require for your participation in a competition organised on our website are marked as mandatory fields on the participation form provided on our website. You may voluntarily provide additional data.

When you enter a sweepstake that we host through our Facebook page or Instagram page, we store your public Facebook/Instagram profile information including your username and your Facebook/Instagram comment (text and image) submitted to participate in the sweepstake to document your sweepstake in the event of your drawing.

We need your address data only after the prize determination and only in the event that you have been determined as the winner, in order to be able to send you the prize. We request your address information by emailing you either to the email address you provided on the entry form or, if you are participating in a Facebook/Instagram competition, to your Facebook/Instagram profile. You are under no obligation to provide us with your address information. However, if you do not provide us with your address information, we may not be able to deliver the prize to you.

Your personal data will be processed by us for the purpose of conducting the competition on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO. In the case of sweepstakes which we conduct together with cooperation partners, your data will be forwarded to the cooperation partner who is responsible for redeeming the prize. You will be informed of this cooperation partner as part of your address enquiry. Our cooperation partner(s) will be named in the respective competition. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or used for advertising purposes (e.g. to send newsletters) if this is necessary to run the competition or if you have given your express consent beforehand.

If you have been identified as a winner of a competition and you have given us your consent, we will post your first and last name in connection with the prize on our website and/or Facebook page/Instagram page.

With your consent, our cooperation partners may contact you directly by email or postal mail with promotional offers.

The processing of your data, for which you have given us your consent, takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Your personal data will be deleted automatically after the lottery has ended, unless you have given us permission to process your data beyond the purpose of the lottery, or if legal regulations prevent the deletion.

You can revoke your consent given to us within the scope of your participation in a competition at any time with effect for the future by notifying us of your revocation in writing or by contacting us by e-mail at info@neue-meister-music.com or by contacting our corresponding cooperation partner. After revocation of your consent, your personal data, to which your revocation refers, will be deleted immediately, unless there are legal provisions to the contrary.

If you subscribe to a newsletter from one of our cooperation partners as part of the raffle, the data protection provisions specified by this partner apply.

4. Disclosure of data

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties for any purposes other than those set out below.

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you granted your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(a) GDPR;
  • disclosure is required pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR in connection with the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being disclosed;
  • we are subject to a statutory obligation to such disclosure pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1(c) and
  • this is permitted by law and necessary in connection with implementing contractual relations with you pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1(b) GDPR.

 

5. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small text files which are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information relating to the specific end device used in each case is stored in the cookie. This does not mean, however, that we directly receive information relating to your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make it easier for you to use our services. In this context, we use session cookies to identify whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies in order to optimise our website’s user-friendliness; these are stored on your end device for a specific period. If you re-visit our website in order to take advantage of our services, the website automatically recognises that you are returning and will remember your data and settings in order to save you from entering these a second time.

The data processed using cookies are required for the stated purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in line with Art. 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can, however, configure your browser such that cookies are not stored on your computer or a notice appears every time a new cookie is created. Full deactivation of cookies may, however, prevent you from being able to use all the functions on our website.

Reference to data processing in the USA 

By clicking on the button “I accept all cookies”, you also agree according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO that your data will be transmitted to the USA and processed there. According to the assessment of the European Court of Justice, the USA does not guarantee a level of data protection that meets the European GDPR standards. In particular, it is easier and more extensive for US authorities to access personal data compared to authorities in the EU. There is thus a risk that your data collected in connection with your visit to our website may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly even without any legal remedy.

6. GA4 Google Analytics
Insofar as you have given your consent, our website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Third country transfer
Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection.

This website contains embedded audiovisual media hosted on the platform YouTube. The operator of Youtube is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

According to YouTube, this mode supports YouTube not storing any information about visitors to this website before they acitivate the video by clicking on it.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you might enable YouTube to evaluate your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile.

This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. Cookies remain on your terminal 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 control.

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

The responsible party operates several social media presences. On Neue Meister those are:

The links establish a connection to our online presence of the respective social network exclusively on request – therefore only after the user has clicked on a link. After a click on the link, the IP address and the general header information of the user’s browser are transmitted to the respective social network. The respective social network may collect further personal data as soon as you use its offers. If you are logged into your respective account, Facebook can, for example, assign the visit to your account there.

By the ruling of the European Court of Justice of 05 June 2018, a joint responsibility of Facebook and the respective fan page or profile operator for the operation of a fan page was assumed. Despite this possible joint responsibility of us and the social media portal operator, we unfortunately have little control or influence over the processing of personal data by the respective social media portals. This refers both to the data entered by you on the social media platforms, such as comments, videos, images, likes, public messages, etc., as well as any web tracking, marketing and analysis tools used by the portal. We would like to point out that it cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform may use your profile and behavioral data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. Your personal data will also be processed by the respective operator outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. As a result, risks may arise for you, in particular the enforcement of rights may become more difficult.You can find more detailed information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and further objection options in the privacy statements of the respective providers:

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation

Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875

The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, images, likes, public messages, etc., will not be used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. At the points where we can exert influence, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us to ensure that the operator of the social media platform handles the content in a manner that complies with data protection laws. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication.

Online applications are transferred in encrypted form according to the latest technological standards.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in line with technological developments.
