Used terms

“Per­son­al data” shall mean any infor­ma­tion relat­ing to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­son (here­inafter referred to as “data sub­ject”); an iden­ti­fi­able per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied, direct­ly or indi­rect­ly, in par­tic­u­lar by ref­er­ence to an iden­ti­fi­er such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber, a loca­tion data, an online iden­ti­fi­er (e.g. a cook­ie) or one or more fac­tors spe­cif­ic to the phys­i­cal, phys­i­o­log­i­cal, genet­ic, men­tal, eco­nom­ic, cul­tur­al or social iden­ti­ty of that nat­ur­al per­son.

“Pro­cess­ing” means any oper­a­tion or set of oper­a­tions which is per­formed upon per­son­al data, whether or not by auto­mat­ic means. The term is broad and cov­ers vir­tu­al­ly all data han­dling.

“pseu­do­nymiza­tion” shall mean the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data in such a way that the per­son­al data can­not be relat­ed to a spe­cif­ic data sub­ject with­out the inclu­sion of addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion, pro­vid­ed that this addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion is kept sep­a­rate­ly and is sub­ject to tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tion­al mea­sures ensur­ing that the per­son­al data is not attrib­uted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­son

“Pro­fil­ing” shall mean any auto­mat­ed pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data con­sist­ing in using such per­son­al data to eval­u­ate cer­tain per­son­al aspects relat­ing to a nat­ur­al per­son, in par­tic­u­lar with a view to analysing or pre­dict­ing aspects relat­ing to the per­for­mance of work, eco­nom­ic sit­u­a­tion, health, per­son­al pref­er­ences, inter­ests, reli­a­bil­i­ty, con­duct, where­abouts or move­ments of that nat­ur­al per­son.

The term “con­troller” shall mean the nat­ur­al or legal per­son, pub­lic author­i­ty, agency or oth­er body which alone or joint­ly with oth­ers deter­mines the pur­pos­es and means of the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data.

“Proces­sor” means any nat­ur­al or legal per­son, pub­lic author­i­ty, agency or oth­er body which process­es per­son­al data on behalf of the con­troller.

Applic­a­ble legal basis

In accor­dance with Art. 13 DSGVO we inform you about the legal basis of our data pro­cess­ing. If the legal basis is not stat­ed in the data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion, the fol­low­ing applies: The legal basis for obtain­ing con­sent is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 DSGVO, the legal basis for pro­cess­ing for the pur­pose of ful­fill­ing our ser­vices and imple­ment­ing con­trac­tu­al mea­sures and answer­ing inquiries is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, the legal basis for pro­cess­ing for the pur­pose of ful­fill­ing our legal oblig­a­tions is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO, and the legal basis for pro­cess­ing for the pur­pose of safe­guard­ing our legit­i­mate inter­ests is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. In the event that vital inter­ests of the data sub­ject or anoth­er nat­ur­al per­son require the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

Secu­ri­ty mea­sures

In accor­dance with Art. 32 DSGVO and tak­ing into account the state of the art, the imple­men­ta­tion costs and the nature, scope, cir­cum­stances and pur­pos­es of the pro­cess­ing as well as the vary­ing prob­a­bil­i­ty of occur­rence and sever­i­ty of the risk to the rights and free­doms of nat­ur­al per­sons, we take appro­pri­ate tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tion­al mea­sures to ensure a lev­el of pro­tec­tion appro­pri­ate to the risk.

These mea­sures shall include, in par­tic­u­lar, safe­guard­ing the con­fi­den­tial­i­ty, integri­ty and avail­abil­i­ty of data by con­trol­ling the phys­i­cal access to the data, as well as the access, input, dis­clo­sure, secu­ri­ty of avail­abil­i­ty and sep­a­ra­tion of the data relat­ing to them. Fur­ther­more, we have estab­lished pro­ce­dures to ensure that the rights of data sub­jects are exer­cised, data is delet­ed, and we respond to any threats to the data. Fur­ther­more, we take the pro­tec­tion of per­son­al data into account as ear­ly as the devel­op­ment or selec­tion of hard­ware, soft­ware and pro­ce­dures, in accor­dance with the prin­ci­ple of data pro­tec­tion through tech­nol­o­gy design and through data pro­tec­tion-friend­ly pre­set­tings (Art. 25 DSGVO).

Coop­er­a­tion with con­tract proces­sors and third par­ties

If, in the course of our pro­cess­ing, we dis­close data to oth­er per­sons and com­pa­nies (proces­sors or third par­ties), trans­fer it to them or oth­er­wise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of a legal autho­riza­tion (e.g. if a trans­fer of the data to third par­ties, such as pay­ment ser­vice providers, is nec­es­sary for the per­for­mance of the con­tract in accor­dance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO), if you have con­sent­ed, if a legal oblig­a­tion pro­vides for this or on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we com­mis­sion third par­ties to process data on the basis of a so-called “con­tract pro­cess­ing agree­ment”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.

Trans­fers to third coun­tries

If we process data in a third coun­try (i.e. out­side the Euro­pean Union (EU) or the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the con­text of using the ser­vices of third par­ties or dis­clo­sure or trans­fer of data to third par­ties, this will only take place if it is done to ful­fil our (pre-)contractual oblig­a­tions, on the basis of your con­sent, on the basis of a legal oblig­a­tion or on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests. Sub­ject to legal or con­trac­tu­al per­mis­sions, we will only process or trans­fer the data in a third coun­try if the spe­cial require­ments of Art. 44 ff. DSGVO. This means that the pro­cess­ing is car­ried out, for exam­ple, on the basis of spe­cial guar­an­tees, such as the offi­cial­ly rec­og­nized deter­mi­na­tion of a lev­el of data pro­tec­tion cor­re­spond­ing to that of the EU (e.g. for the USA through the “Pri­va­cy Shield”) or com­pli­ance with offi­cial­ly rec­og­nized spe­cial con­trac­tu­al oblig­a­tions (so-called “stan­dard con­trac­tu­al claus­es”).

Rights of the data sub­jects

You have the right to request con­fir­ma­tion as to whether or not data in ques­tion is being processed and to receive infor­ma­tion about this data and to receive fur­ther infor­ma­tion and a copy of the data in accor­dance with Art. 15 of the Data Pro­tec­tion Act.

You have accord­ing­ly. Art. 16 DSGVO the right to request the com­ple­tion of data con­cern­ing you or the cor­rec­tion of incor­rect data con­cern­ing you.

In accor­dance with Art. 17 DSGVO, you have the right to demand that data con­cern­ing you be delet­ed imme­di­ate­ly, or alter­na­tive­ly, in accor­dance with Art. 18 DSGVO, to demand that the pro­cess­ing of the data be restrict­ed.

You have the right to demand that the data con­cern­ing you, which you have made avail­able to us, be received in accor­dance with Art. 20 DSGVO and to demand its trans­fer to oth­er respon­si­ble par­ties.

You also have the right to lodge a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty in accor­dance with Art. 77 DSGVO.

Right of with­draw­al

You have the right to revoke con­sents grant­ed in accor­dance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO with effect for the future

Right of objec­tion

You can object to the future pro­cess­ing of data con­cern­ing you at any time in accor­dance with Art. 21 DSGVO. The objec­tion may in par­tic­u­lar be made against pro­cess­ing for the pur­pos­es of direct adver­tis­ing.

Cook­ies and right of objec­tion for direct adver­tis­ing

Cook­ies” are small files that are stored on the user’s com­put­er. Dif­fer­ent infor­ma­tion can be stored with­in the cook­ies. A cook­ie is pri­mar­i­ly used to store infor­ma­tion about a user (or the device on which the cook­ie is stored) dur­ing or after his vis­it to an online ser­vice. Tem­po­rary cook­ies, or “ses­sion cook­ies” or “tran­sient cook­ies”, are cook­ies that are delet­ed after a user leaves an online offer and clos­es his brows­er. In such a cook­ie, for exam­ple, the con­tents of a shop­ping cart in an online store or a login sta­tus can be stored. Cook­ies are described as “per­ma­nent” or “per­sis­tent” if they remain stored even after the brows­er is closed. For exam­ple, the login sta­tus can be saved if the user vis­its it after sev­er­al days. Like­wise, the inter­ests of the users can be stored in such a cook­ie, which is used for range mea­sure­ment or mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es. Third-par­ty cook­ies are cook­ies that are offered by providers oth­er than the per­son respon­si­ble for oper­at­ing the online ser­vice (oth­er­wise, if it is only their cook­ies, it is called “first-par­ty cook­ies”).

We may use tem­po­rary and per­ma­nent cook­ies and pro­vide infor­ma­tion on this in our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy.

If users do not want cook­ies to be stored on their com­put­er, they are asked to deac­ti­vate the cor­re­spond­ing option in the sys­tem set­tings of their brows­er. Stored cook­ies can be delet­ed in the sys­tem set­tings of the brows­er. The exclu­sion of cook­ies can lead to func­tion­al lim­i­ta­tions of this online offer.

A gen­er­al objec­tion to the use of cook­ies used for online mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es can be declared for many of the ser­vices, espe­cial­ly in the case of track­ing, via the US site or the EU site Fur­ther­more, the stor­age of cook­ies can be achieved by deac­ti­vat­ing them in the brows­er set­tings. Please note that in this case not all func­tions of this online offer can be used.

Dele­tion of data

The data processed by us will be delet­ed or restrict­ed in their pro­cess­ing in accor­dance with arti­cles 17 and 18 DSGVO. Unless express­ly stat­ed in this data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion, the data stored by us will be delet­ed as soon as they are no longer required for their intend­ed pur­pose and the dele­tion does not con­flict with any statu­to­ry stor­age oblig­a­tions. If the data are not delet­ed because they are required for oth­er and legal­ly per­mis­si­ble pur­pos­es, their pro­cess­ing will be restrict­ed. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for oth­er pur­pos­es. This applies, for exam­ple, to data that must be retained for com­mer­cial or tax law rea­sons.

Accord­ing to legal require­ments in Ger­many, the stor­age is in par­tic­u­lar for 10 years accord­ing to §§ 147 para. 1 AO, 257 para. 1 No. 1 and 4, para. 4 HGB (books, records, man­age­ment reports, account­ing vouch­ers, com­mer­cial books, doc­u­ments rel­e­vant for tax­a­tion, etc.) and 6 years accord­ing to § 257 para. 1 No. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (com­mer­cial let­ters).

Accord­ing to legal require­ments in Aus­tria, the stor­age is in par­tic­u­lar for 7 J accord­ing to § 132 para. 1 BAO (account­ing doc­u­ments, vouch­ers / invoic­es, accounts, receipts, busi­ness doc­u­ments, state­ment of income and expen­di­ture, etc.), for 22 years in con­nec­tion with real estate and for 10 years for doc­u­ments in con­nec­tion with elec­tron­i­cal­ly pro­vid­ed ser­vices, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions, radio and tele­vi­sion ser­vices pro­vid­ed to non-entre­pre­neurs in EU mem­ber states and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) is used.

Agency ser­vices

We process the data of our cus­tomers with­in the scope of our con­trac­tu­al ser­vices, which include con­cep­tu­al and strate­gic con­sult­ing, cam­paign plan­ning, soft­ware and design development/consulting or main­te­nance, imple­men­ta­tion of cam­paigns and processes/handling, serv­er admin­is­tra­tion, data analysis/consulting ser­vices and train­ing ser­vices.

We process inven­to­ry data (e.g., cus­tomer mas­ter data, such as names or address­es), con­tact data (e.g., e‑mail, tele­phone num­bers), con­tent data (e.g., text entries, pho­tographs, videos), con­tract data (e.g., sub­ject mat­ter of the con­tract, dura­tion), pay­ment data (e.g., bank details, pay­ment his­to­ry), usage and meta data (e.g., in the con­text of eval­u­a­tion and per­for­mance mea­sure­ment of mar­ket­ing mea­sures). As a mat­ter of prin­ci­ple, we do not process spe­cial cat­e­gories of per­son­al data, unless they are part of a com­mis­sioned pro­cess­ing. Those affect­ed include our cus­tomers, inter­est­ed par­ties and their cus­tomers, users, web­site vis­i­tors or employ­ees as well as third par­ties. The pur­pose of pro­cess­ing is to pro­vide con­trac­tu­al ser­vices, billing and our cus­tomer ser­vice. The legal basis of the pro­cess­ing is derived from Art. 6 para. 1 let­ter b DSGVO (con­trac­tu­al ser­vices), Art. 6 para. 1 let­ter f DSGVO (analy­sis, sta­tis­tics, opti­miza­tion, secu­ri­ty mea­sures). We process data which are nec­es­sary for the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion and ful­fil­ment of the con­trac­tu­al ser­vices and point out the neces­si­ty of their dis­clo­sure. Dis­clo­sure to exter­nal par­ties will only be made if it is nec­es­sary with­in the scope of an order. When pro­cess­ing the data pro­vid­ed to us with­in the scope of an order, we act in accor­dance with the instruc­tions of the client and the legal require­ments of an order pro­cess­ing in accor­dance with Art. 28 DSGVO and do not process the data for any oth­er pur­pos­es than those spec­i­fied in the order.

We delete the data after the expiry of statu­to­ry war­ran­ty and com­pa­ra­ble oblig­a­tions. The neces­si­ty of stor­ing the data is reviewed every three years; in the case of statu­to­ry archiv­ing oblig­a­tions, dele­tion takes place after the expiry of these oblig­a­tions (6 years in accor­dance with § 257 para. 1 HGB, 10 years in accor­dance with § 147 para. 1 AO). In the case of data that has been dis­closed to us by the client with­in the scope of an order, we delete the data in accor­dance with the spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the order, in prin­ci­ple after the end of the order.

Admin­is­tra­tion, finan­cial account­ing, office orga­ni­za­tion, con­tact man­age­ment

We process data with­in the frame­work of admin­is­tra­tive tasks as well as the orga­ni­za­tion of our oper­a­tions, finan­cial account­ing and com­pli­ance with legal oblig­a­tions, such as archiv­ing. In doing so, we process the same data that we process with­in the scope of pro­vid­ing our con­trac­tu­al ser­vices. The basis for pro­cess­ing is art. 6 par. 1 lit. c. DSGVO, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. Cus­tomers, inter­est­ed par­ties, busi­ness part­ners and web­site vis­i­tors are affect­ed by the pro­cess­ing. The pur­pose of and our inter­est in pro­cess­ing lies in the admin­is­tra­tion, finan­cial account­ing, office orga­ni­za­tion, archiv­ing of data, i.e. tasks that serve to main­tain our busi­ness activ­i­ties, per­form our tasks and pro­vide our ser­vices. The dele­tion of the data with regard to con­trac­tu­al ser­vices and con­trac­tu­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion cor­re­sponds to the data men­tioned in these pro­cess­ing activ­i­ties.

We dis­close or trans­fer data to the tax author­i­ties, con­sul­tants, such as tax con­sul­tants or audi­tors, as well as oth­er fee agen­cies and pay­ment ser­vice providers.

Fur­ther­more, we store infor­ma­tion on sup­pli­ers, event orga­niz­ers and oth­er busi­ness part­ners on the basis of our busi­ness inter­ests, e.g. for the pur­pose of con­tact­ing them at a lat­er date. We store these most­ly com­pa­ny-relat­ed data permanently.

Our pod­casts are stored on the plat­form “Sound­cloud”, offered by Sound­Cloud Lim­it­ed, Rheins­berg­er Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Ger­many, and are played from this plat­form.

For this pur­pose we inte­grate so-called Sound­cloud wid­gets into our web­site. These are play­back soft­ware with which users can play the pod­casts. Sound­cloud can mea­sure which pod­casts are lis­tened to and to what extent and process this infor­ma­tion pseu­do­ny­mous­ly for sta­tis­ti­cal and busi­ness man­age­ment pur­pos­es. To this end, cook­ies may be stored in the browsers of users and processed to cre­ate user pro­files, e.g. for the pur­pose of dis­play­ing adver­tise­ments that cor­re­spond to the poten­tial inter­ests of users. In the case of users who are reg­is­tered with Sound­cloud, Sound­cloud can assign the audio infor­ma­tion to their pro­files.

The use is based on our legit­i­mate inter­ests, i.e. inter­est in a secure and effi­cient pro­vi­sion, analy­sis and opti­miza­tion of our audio offer in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.

For more infor­ma­tion and opt-out options, please see the Sound­cloud pri­va­cy pol­i­cy:


When con­tact­ing us (e.g. via con­tact form, e‑mail, tele­phone or via social media), the user’s details are processed for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing the con­tact request and its han­dling in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. The user’s details may be stored in a cus­tomer rela­tion­ship man­age­ment sys­tem (“CRM sys­tem”) or com­pa­ra­ble inquiry orga­ni­za­tion.

We will delete the inquiries if they are no longer required. We review the neces­si­ty every two years; fur­ther­more, the statu­to­ry archiv­ing oblig­a­tions apply.


With the fol­low­ing notes we inform you about the con­tents of our newslet­ter as well as the reg­is­tra­tion, dis­patch and sta­tis­ti­cal eval­u­a­tion pro­ce­dure and your rights of objec­tion. By sub­scrib­ing to our newslet­ter, you agree to receive it and to the described pro­ce­dures.

Con­tent of the newslet­ter: We send newslet­ters, e‑mails and oth­er elec­tron­ic noti­fi­ca­tions con­tain­ing adver­tis­ing infor­ma­tion (here­inafter referred to as “newslet­ter”) only with the con­sent of the recip­i­ents or a legal per­mis­sion. If, in the course of reg­is­ter­ing for the newslet­ter, its con­tents are specif­i­cal­ly described, they are deci­sive for the con­sent of the users. Fur­ther­more, our newslet­ters con­tain infor­ma­tion about our ser­vices and us.

Dou­ble-Opt-In and log­ging: The reg­is­tra­tion to our newslet­ter is done in a so-called Dou­ble-Opt-In pro­ce­dure. This means that after reg­is­tra­tion you will receive an e‑mail ask­ing you to con­firm your reg­is­tra­tion. This con­fir­ma­tion is nec­es­sary so that no one can reg­is­ter with for­eign e‑mail address­es. The newslet­ter reg­is­tra­tions are logged in order to be able to prove the reg­is­tra­tion process accord­ing to the legal require­ments. This includes the stor­age of the reg­is­tra­tion and con­fir­ma­tion time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the ship­ping ser­vice provider are also logged.

Reg­is­tra­tion data: To sub­scribe to the newslet­ter, it is suf­fi­cient to enter your e‑mail address. Option­al­ly, we ask you to enter a name for per­son­al con­tact in the newslet­ter.

The dis­patch of the newslet­ter and the asso­ci­at­ed mea­sure­ment of suc­cess are based on the con­sent of the recip­i­ents in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in con­junc­tion with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or, if con­sent is not required, on our legit­i­mate inter­ests in direct mar­ket­ing in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lt. f. DSGVO in con­junc­tion with § Sec­tion 7 para. 3 of the UWG.

The reg­is­tra­tion pro­ce­dure is record­ed on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are inter­est­ed in the use of a user-friend­ly and secure newslet­ter sys­tem that serves our busi­ness inter­ests as well as the expec­ta­tions of the users and also allows us to prove their con­sent.

Cancellation/revocation — You can can­cel the receipt of our newslet­ter at any time, i.e. revoke your con­sent. You will find a link to can­cel the newslet­ter at the end of each newslet­ter. We may store the unsub­scribed e‑mail address­es for up to three years based on our legit­i­mate inter­ests before we delete them to prove that you have pre­vi­ous­ly giv­en your con­sent. The pro­cess­ing of this data is lim­it­ed to the pur­pose of a pos­si­ble defense against claims. An indi­vid­ual request for dele­tion is pos­si­ble at any time, pro­vid­ed that the for­mer exis­tence of a con­sent is con­firmed at the same time.

Newslet­ter — Mailchimp

The newslet­ters are sent via the mail­ing ser­vice provider “MailChimp”, a newslet­ter mail­ing plat­form of the US provider Rock­et Sci­ence Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions of the mail ser­vice provider can be viewed here: The Rock­et Sci­ence Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is cer­ti­fied under the Pri­va­cy Shield Agree­ment and thus offers a guar­an­tee to com­ply with the Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion lev­el ( The mail order ser­vice provider is used on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests accord­ing to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and an order pro­cess­ing con­tract accord­ing to art. 28 para. 3 p. 1 DSGVO.

The dis­patch ser­vice provider may use the data of the recip­i­ents in pseu­do­ny­mous form, i.e. with­out allo­ca­tion to a user, to opti­mize or improve its own ser­vices, e.g. for tech­ni­cal opti­miza­tion of dis­patch and pre­sen­ta­tion of the newslet­ter or for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­pos­es. How­ev­er, the dis­patch ser­vice provider does not use the data of our newslet­ter recip­i­ents to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third par­ties.

Newslet­ter — mea­sure­ment of suc­cess

The newslet­ters con­tain a so-called “web-bea­con”, i.e. a pix­el-sized file that is retrieved from our serv­er when the newslet­ter is opened or, if we use a mail­ing ser­vice provider, from their serv­er. With­in the scope of this retrieval, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion such as infor­ma­tion on the brows­er and your sys­tem, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are ini­tial­ly col­lect­ed.

This infor­ma­tion is used for the tech­ni­cal improve­ment of the ser­vices based on the tech­ni­cal data or the tar­get groups and their read­ing behav­ior based on their retrieval loca­tions (which can be deter­mined by means of the IP address) or the access times. Sta­tis­ti­cal sur­veys also include deter­min­ing whether newslet­ters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, this infor­ma­tion can be assigned to indi­vid­ual newslet­ter recip­i­ents. How­ev­er, it is nei­ther our inten­tion nor that of the mail­ing ser­vice provider, if used, to observe indi­vid­ual users. The eval­u­a­tions serve us much more to rec­og­nize the read­ing habits of our users and to adapt our con­tent to them or to send dif­fer­ent con­tent accord­ing to the inter­ests of our users.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it is not pos­si­ble to can­cel the suc­cess mea­sure­ment sep­a­rate­ly. In this case, the entire newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion must be can­celled.

Host­ing and e‑mailing

The host­ing ser­vices we use serve to pro­vide the fol­low­ing ser­vices: Infra­struc­ture and plat­form ser­vices, com­put­ing capac­i­ty, stor­age space and data­base ser­vices, e‑mail dis­patch, secu­ri­ty ser­vices as well as tech­ni­cal main­te­nance ser­vices that we use for the pur­pose of oper­at­ing this online offer.

In doing so, we or our host­ing provider process inven­to­ry data, con­tact data, con­tent data, con­tract data, usage data, meta and com­mu­ni­ca­tion data of cus­tomers, inter­est­ed par­ties and vis­i­tors of this online offer on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests in an effi­cient and secure pro­vi­sion of this online offer in accor­dance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in con­junc­tion with Art. 28 DSGVO (con­clu­sion of con­tract pro­cess­ing agree­ment).

Online pres­ence in social media

We main­tain online pres­ences with­in social net­works and plat­forms in order to be able to com­mu­ni­cate with the cus­tomers, inter­est­ed par­ties and users active there and to inform them about our ser­vices. When access­ing the respec­tive net­works and plat­forms, the terms and con­di­tions and data pro­cess­ing guide­lines of their respec­tive oper­a­tors apply.

Unless oth­er­wise stat­ed in our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy, we process the data of users if they com­mu­ni­cate with us with­in the social net­works and plat­forms, e.g. write arti­cles on our online pres­ences or send us mes­sages.

Inte­gra­tion of third par­ty ser­vices and con­tent

We set with­in our online offer on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (i.e. inter­est in the analy­sis, opti­miza­tion and eco­nom­ic oper­a­tion of our online offer with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO), we use con­tent or ser­vice offers from third par­ties in order to inte­grate their con­tent and ser­vices, such as videos or fonts (here­inafter uni­form­ly referred to as “con­tent”).

This always pre­sup­pos­es that the third-par­ty providers of such con­tent are aware of the IP address of the users, as with­out the IP address they would not be able to send the con­tent to their browsers. The IP address is there­fore nec­es­sary for the dis­play of this con­tent. We make every effort to use only such con­tent whose respec­tive providers use the IP address only to deliv­er the con­tent. Third par­ty providers may also use so-called pix­el tags (invis­i­ble graph­ics, also known as “web bea­cons”) for sta­tis­ti­cal or mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es. The “pix­el tags” can be used to eval­u­ate infor­ma­tion such as vis­i­tor traf­fic on the pages of this web­site. The pseu­do­ny­mous infor­ma­tion may also be stored in cook­ies on the user’s device and may con­tain tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion about the brows­er and oper­at­ing sys­tem, refer­ring web­sites, vis­it­ing times and oth­er details about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such infor­ma­tion from oth­er sources.


On our web­site we use fea­tures and con­tent that were set up by pretix, a ser­vice of Soft­wa­reen­twick­lung, Raphael Michel, Mark­gräfler Straße 16, 69126 Hei­del­berg, Ger­many, to pro­vide our tick­et store. The Tick­et Shop is pro­vid­ed via a JavaScript wid­get. When you attempt to pur­chase a tick­et, cook­ies are used to facil­i­tate your pur­chase process and to remem­ber which tick­ets are in your shop­ping cart. This cook­ie is only set when you inter­act with the wid­get. No IP address­es, brows­er infor­ma­tion or oth­er unnec­es­sary meta­da­ta is stored beyond the time of your trans­ac­tion.
