Subscription to our newsletter is subject to a so-called double opt-in process. This means after your subscription, you will receive an e-mail request to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is required to avoid that someone registers with an e-mail address belonging to another person. Subscriptions to our newsletter are logged in order to enable us to provide evidence for the subscription process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes storage of the time of both registration and confirmation, and of the IP address. Changes to your data stored with us are also documented.

4.2 You may revoke your consent to the storage of your data, including your e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by using the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

5. Specific Data Protection Requirements in Relation to Project Requests 

5.1 For the performance of our contractual obligations and services in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, we will inform you via e-mail or telephone about new project inquiries. With your registration and acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions, you agree that we may inform you in this way. By changing the settings in your user account, you may select the projects and fields of which you would like to receive updates. 

5.2 The e-mails/newsletters are sent via the provider Mailjet SAS, 13-13 bis, Rue de l'Aubrac , 75012 Paris, France. Mailjet is a service with which the e-mail/newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data entered by you for the purpose of receiving e-mails/newsletters (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on Mailjet's servers in the EU.

5.3 The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened. 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 collected. This information is used for technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or target groups and their reading behavior according to their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or access times. 

5.4 Statistical surveys also include determining whether and when newsletters are opened, and which links are clicked. While this information is attributable to individual users for technical reasons, it is not our intent to monitor individual users. We rather use the analyses to understand our users’ reading habits and to adapt our content accordingly or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

5.5 You may unsibscribe to the newsletter, i.e. revoke your consent, at any time. A link to unsubscribe the newsletter is included at the end of each newsletter. After unsubscription, your e-mail address will be stored in a blacklist and only used to ensure that we do not send any further e-mails to this e-mail address. For the avoidance of doubt, please note that once you are on this list, for technical reasons you will be unable to receive project requests from our system to the respective e-mail address. 

5.6 You can cancel the reception about new project requests at any time. You will find a link to cancel the e-mail delivery service at the end of each project request.

5.7 The data you have provided to us for the purpose of receiving the e-mail/newsletter will be stored by us until you cancel the newsletter or the receipt of new project requests and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Mailjet after you cancel the newsletter or the receipt of new project requests.

Further information on data processing and notes on data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

By integrating Vimeo, we pursue the purpose of being able to present various videos to you on our website so that you can view them directly on our website.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Art. 6 (1)(f)) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest required for this lies in the great benefit that YouTube offers. By integrating external videos, we relieve our servers and can use corresponding resources elsewhere. This can, among other things, increase the stability of our servers. Vimeo also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

9. store and e-commerce

9.1 We process the data of our customers to enable them to select, purchase or order the selected products, goods and related services, as well as their payment and delivery or execution. If necessary for the execution of an order, we use service providers, in particular postal, forwarding and shipping companies, to carry out the delivery or execution to our customers.

Legal bases for the processing of personal data described here are the fulfillment of the contract and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6 para. 1 (1)(b) DSGVO), legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 (1) (c) DSGVO) and legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 (1) (f) DSGVO).

9.2 For the processing of payment transactions, we use the services of banks and payment service providers. The required information is identified as such in the context of the order or comparable acquisition process and includes the information required for delivery, or provision and billing, as well as contact information in order to be able to consult.

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data, such as the name and address, bank data, such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TAN and checksums, as well as the contract, total and recipient-related information. The information is required to carry out the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored with them. I.e., we do not receive any account or credit card related information, but only information with confirmation or rejection of the payment. Under certain circumstances, the payment service providers transmit the data to credit agencies. This transmission is for the purpose of checking identity and creditworthiness. In this regard, we refer to the terms and conditions and data protection notices of the payment service providers.
For payment transactions, the terms and conditions and data protection notices of the respective payment service providers apply, which can be accessed within the respective websites or transaction applications. We also refer to these for the purpose of further information and assertion of revocation, information and other data subject rights.
