4.8. Inclusion of Youtube videos

We incorporate videos from “YouTube”, the platform provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Information on the use of the data by Google when videos are viewed, is provided in the Google privacy policy:

https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ and in the Youtube terms of use: https://www.youtube.com/static?gl=DE&template=terms&hl=de.

When a YouTube video is viewed, personal data is generally transferred by means of cookies to YouTube and to the Google tracking service DoubleClick, so as to enable the user behaviour to be analysed. In this case, cookies are already set every time the website is viewed, with the effect that Google is, in principle, able to collate all of the pages you have visited as a user, in order to compile a profile. It cannot, therefore, be ruled out that this data that is stored by the respective network is assigned to an individual person.

It is possible that by viewing YouTube videos, your data could be transferred to servers in third countries, e.g. in the USA. The responsibility for operating in compliance with data protection regulations has to be guaranteed by the respective provider. We point out that Google LLC complies with the requirements of both the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield and also those of the Swiss-US Privacy Shield. These are treaties between the United States and the European Union and the United States and Switzerland, guaranteeing that the level of data protection stipulated in the European Union is also complied with by the relevant undertakings domiciled and certified in the USA. Further explanations are available at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/. You can retrieve the list of certified undertakings from: www.privacyshield.gov/list. We do, however, advise of the following: Even if undertakings in the USA have subjected themselves to the EU-US Privacy Shield (see list of the undertakings at: www.privacyshield.gov/list) or to the EU standard contract clauses, and have thus undertaken to comply with the data protection rules specified in the contract, the transmission of data to countries outside Europe, especially to the USA, nonetheless involves risks under data protection law.

This use of your data by Google is conditional upon your consent. You give this consent in connection with the cookie consent or, in an individual case, by accepting data processing by Google by clicking on the video interface.

By means of our software solution, there is only a transmission of data to Google if you allow only the Youtube cookies or if you allow all social media cookies. Google may not collect any data from you beforehand. This thus ensures that you can use our offer without making your data available to Google.

Your consent is voluntary, as you can already choose in the cookie settings [https://www.animationproductiondays.de/] whether you agree to allowing cookies to be set by Youtube or not. It is up to you to decide not to allow Youtube cookies. Please bear in mind that in this case Youtube content cannot be displayed on our website.

You can withdraw your consent at any time. In order to prevent the transmission of data to Google without activating the video, you can block Youtube cookies at any time in the cookie settings [https://www.animationproductiondays.de/]. The resultant effect is that no data is transferred to Google, but you cannot be shown any videos either. You can still watch the video if you accept the data transmission to Youtube by clicking on the link on the blocked video user interface.

The legal basis for this processing of your data is your consent (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR).

4.9. Google Maps

On our website we use “Google Maps”, an online map service offered by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

Google Maps enables us to show you our location via an interactive map on the website and to give you travel directions to us.

As a rule, information on your use of our website (such as your IP address) is already transmitted to Google servers and stored there as soon as you retrieve the subpages which the map from Google Maps is embedded in. In this connection there can also be a transmission to the Google LLC servers in the USA. This happens regardless of whether you are logged into Google via a user account or not.

No data is transmitted to Google Maps unless you have given your consent. In the cookie settings you can withdraw your consent at any time. If you do not grant us your consent to the inclusion of Google Maps, we use a special software solution which prevents the transmission of data to Google. The effect this has is that when you click on the map in Google Maps, you are transferred to a link first of all and only by clicking on this link after receiving data privacy instructions is the information sent to Google. Please only click on the map if you are in agreement with your data being transferred to Google and being used by Google as described below. If you do not activate the link there is no transmission of your data to Google.

Google uses the following data to determine the location:

  • GPS
  • Your IP address
  • Sensor data of the device you use
  • Information on objects in the vicinity of your device, e.g. any Wi-Fi access points, radio masts and Bluetooth-enabled devices

The type of location data collected by Google depends on the specific settings on your devices and accounts. You can, for example, activate and deactivate the location data via the “settings” App on your device.

If you are logged into Google, your data is assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to have an assignment to your Google profile, you have to log out before you activate the button. Even if you are not logged in, Google stores your data as user profiles and evaluates it especially for (personalised) advertising and market research. You have the right to object to these user profiles being created; however, you have to contact Google to exercise this right.

We point out that Google LLC complies with the requirements of both the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield and also those of the Swiss-US Privacy Shield. These are treaties between the United States and the European Union and the United States and Switzerland, guaranteeing that the level of data protection stipulated in the European Union is also complied with by the relevant undertakings domiciled and certified in the USA. Further explanations are available at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/. You can view the list of certified undertakings at: www.privacyshield.gov/list. We do, however, advise you that, even if undertakings in the USA have subjected themselves to the EU-US Privacy Shield and have thus undertaken to comply with the data protection rules specified in the treaty, the transmission of data to countries outside Europe, especially to the USA, can nonetheless involve risks under data protection law due to the possibilities of access by the state. Only if you have given your consent is your data transferred to Google as an exception.

Extensive information on data protection by Google (“Google Privacy Policy”) is provided on the Google website: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de, the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at:       https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html.

If you are not in agreement with your data being transferred to Google in connection with the use of Google Maps in future, you do have the possibility of fully deactivating the Google Maps web service at any time by switching off the application of JavaScript in your browser. You cannot then use Google Maps or the map display on this Internet site.

https://support.google.com/accounts/topic/7189122?hl=de&ref_topic=3382254.

We use Google Maps to be able to show you the interactive maps of Google Maps and to thus improve your sense of direction regarding our location and make it easier for you to find us. The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR.

If appropriate, we will obtain this from you separately. The legal basis for this continued storage and processing of your personal data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR. This data will be routinely erased after two years or in the event of your withdrawal of consent, which is possible at any time, unless a longer storage period is necessary in order to defend against any legal claims or to perform a legal obligation.

The legal basis for collecting and processing your data in connection with the application process is, in principle, the need to have it for a decision on establishing an employment relationship (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR; section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG) and our legitimate interest in using it for the purpose of the proper conduct of the application process (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR). In the event of special categories of personal data, the legal basis is Art. 9 (2) (b) and (h) GDPR (see above).

4.12. Children and young people

Our websites are not designed for children or young people below 16 years of age. We do not therefore knowingly or intentionally collect any personal data from children or young people. If you are under 16 years of age, please do not enter any data on this website. If we obtain knowledge that we have received personal data from children or young people who are not yet 16 years of age, we will erase such data without undue delay subject to any storage obligations.

5. Data processing by a processor / disclosing data

5.1. Data processing by a processor

Notwithstanding any other provisions, we reserve the right, on the above legal bases, to transfer or disclose your data to a third-party (processor) commissioned by us (e.g. in connection with IT support, hosting, destruction of files, sending the Newsletter etc.). We always have agreements on such processing on our behalf with the service providers commissioned by us in this manner. These agreements ensure that the data disclosed accordingly is only used by our commissioned processors to perform the tasks stipulated by us in accordance with the above purposes and that it is used in compliance with the technical and organisational measures necessary for data security and data protection.

5.2. Disclosing data to third parties

Further, your personal data is not transmitted to third parties for any purposes other than those set out below. We only disclose personal data to third parties if:

  • you have explicitly given us your consent to do so pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR;
  • disclosure is necessary pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR on account of a legitimate interest and if there is no reason to assume that such interest is overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms to protect your personal data (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR);
  • there is a legal obligation for disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (c) GDPR;
  • the transmission is necessary, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR, for the performance of contract relationships with you;
  • the transmission is necessary, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (d) GDPR, in order to protect vital interests or
  • the transmission is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (e) GDPR.

5.3 Payment Service Provider Stripe

We use the payment service provider Stripe to process the payment. When processing payments via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland, we pass on the information you provide during the ordering process and the information about your order, in particular:

  • Full Name
  • Address
  • Bank account number
  • Sort code
  • credit card number
  • invoice amount
  • Currency and transaction number

on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b Pass on GDPR. Your data will only be passed on for the purpose of payment processing with the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd. and only to the extent that it is necessary for this. You can find more information on Stripe’s data protection at the URL https://stripe.com/de/privacy#translation.

6. Encryption / data security

6.1. Your data is always encrypted by means of TLS encryption (so-called Transport Layer Security) when it is collected, processed and used. TLS is implemented to encrypt the continual flow of data on the Internet between the server and a user’s browser and to thus prevent any “eavesdropping and data being secretly retrieved” – insofar as this is technically feasible. One of the ways to tell that a connection is encrypted, is if the URL in your browser’s address bar starts with “https://” and/or if the status bar at the bottom of your web browser shows a “lock” or “key” symbol (icon). By clicking on the icon, depending on the browser you use, you can receive further information on the encryption and on the TLS certificate used.

6.2. We point out that it is not possible to fully guarantee data security during e-mail communications. For transmitting confidential information, it might be preferable to use the postal service or service by a courier.

6.3. Furthermore, we apply all reasonable, suitable, technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, full or partial loss, destruction and unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are subject to on-going improvement and further development in accordance with technological developments.

7. Erasure of the data / restriction of data processing

Your data will be erased, in principle, if your consent has discontinued or if the data is no longer required for the purpose of the data processing and if there is no other legal basis for or justified interest in continued storage and processing. If, however, this data still has to be stored due to existing statutory or contractual obligations or requirements of public authorities (e.g. warranty, financial book­keeping), then data processing is restricted by marking and blocking the data. In the event that the purpose of the data processing is changed compared with the original purpose, we shall inform you of this in a manner that is in conformity with data protection law and comply with the requirements of data protection law.

8. Rights of the data subject

As the data subject whose data is being processed, you are entitled to the following rights:

  • Right to be given information (Art. 15 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain information from us on the personal data stored on you. This encompasses, in particular, information on the purposes of the processing, the categories of the personal data processed, the categories of recipient to whom the processed personal data has been or will be disclosed, the period of storage, the existence of the right to rectification or erasure of personal data, to restriction of processing and to object to such processing, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the source of your data if it was not collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information on the details. You further have the right to receive a copy of your personal data undergoing processing by us.

  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data and the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

  • Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) (Art. 17 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of your personal data, subject to the statutory requirements. If such erasure is prejudiced by statutory storage obligations or storage requirements of public authorities or where the processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, the processing of the data will be restricted (see below).

  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

You have the right to demand of us, subject to the statutory requirements, that we restrict the processing of your personal data, i.e. mark the data and restrict the future processing of it (blocking).

  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

You have the right, subject to the statutory requirements, to require us to transmit to you, or to another controller named by you, the personal data concerning you, which you provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

Right to object to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes (“Objection to Advertising”).

  • Right to object to data processing if the legal ground is a “legitimate interest” (Art. 21 GDPR)

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of the data by us if the legal basis for this is a “legitimate interest”. We will then discontinue the processing of the data unless we are able to demonstrate, in accordance with the legal stipulations, compelling legitimate grounds for the continued processing which override your rights.

  • Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 (3) GDPR)

If you have given us your consent to the collection and processing of your data, you may withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future. The lawfulness of processing your data in the past up until the time of your withdrawal of consent shall remain unaffected by this.

  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR)

You may lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your data is infringing applicable law. For this you have the right to approach the competent data protection authority at your habitual residence or in your country or the data protection authority with competence for us.
