Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations can only take place with your explicit consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected. An informal message by e-mail to email@example.com is sufficient for this.
Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority, in particular in the country of your residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data by us is unlawful. The supervisory authority responsible for the seat of our company is:
Berliner Beauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationssicherheit
Alt-Moabit 59-61, 10555 Berlin
Telephone: +49 (30) 13889-0
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive data which we process on the basis of your consent or for the fulfilment of a contract automatically in a common, machine-readable format, or to have it transferred to you or to a third party.
This page uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as registrations or requests that you send to us. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL encryption is activated, then data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
You have the right, under the applicable laws, to receive free information at any time about your confidential personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct, block or delete this data.
Data collection on our website
The use of our website is usually possible without the provision of personal data.
Our website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. The cookies we use are exclusively so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. In the event of a general deactivation of cookies, certain areas of this website, which are protected by a login using access data, can no longer be used.
Server Log Files
The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores information in the form of server log files which are automatically transmitted to us by your browser.
This includes in particular:
Information about the browser type and version used
the operating system of your terminal device
the IP address of the requesting computer (anonymized)
date and time of access to the website
name of the access provider
websites from which your system accesses our website
websites that are called up from your system via our website.
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. We do not merge these data with other data sources. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. We reserve the right to review this afterwards if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use of the website.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If you send us requests via contact form, your data from the form including the contact data you provide there will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for the data storage ceases to exist (e.g. after processing your request). Mandatory legal obligations - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We process data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, design or modification of a legal relationship (inventory data). This is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. B DSGVO, with which the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures is permitted. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our website (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable you to use the service. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship, unless there are statutory retention periods.
Data transfer upon conclusion of contract for services and digital content
We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract, for example to a credit institution for the processing of payments, or if there is a legal obligation to do so. Further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. B DSGVO, which allows the processing
The Data Protection Officer responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics (with anonymization function) component on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web Analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service records, among other things, from which website a person concerned has come to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and to cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. There is no adequacy decision of the European Commission for the USA.
The Data Protection Officer responsible for processing uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google will shorten and anonymize the IP address of the internet connection of the person concerned if access to our websites is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors on our website. Google uses the data and information collected, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are was already explained above. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to analyze the use of our website. Whenever one of the individual pages of this website, operated by the data controller and integrated with a Google Analytics component, is accessed, the internet browser on the data subject's information technology system will automatically be prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission payments.
Through the cookie, personal information such as access time, the location from which access is made, and the frequency of visits to our website by the affected person is stored. With each visit to our websites, these personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose these personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Google can be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and under https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/
The controller responsible for processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google search results and in the Google ad network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to set certain keywords in advance so that an ad is only displayed in the Google search results if the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result from the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to theme-relevant websites using an automated algorithm and taking into account the previously established keywords.
The service provider for Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Usually, the data is transferred to a server there and stored there. There is no adequacy decision of the European Commission for the USA. The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying relevant advertising on third-party websites and in the search results of the Google search engine, and displaying external advertising on our website.
If a data subject arrives at our website via a Google ad, Google will place a so-called conversion cookie on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie will expire after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. Through the conversion cookie, if it has not yet expired, it can be tracked whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a data subject who has arrived at our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase.
The data and information collected by the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. We in turn use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertising customers of Google AdWords receive information from Google that could be used to identify the data subject.
Through the use of a conversion cookie, personal information such as the websites visited by the person concerned is stored. Each time we visit our websites, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected through technical means to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the affected person has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. For this purpose, the affected person must call up the link https://www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers used by him and make the desired settings there. Further information and the https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Instagram Social Media Plugin
On our website, a social button of the social network Instagram is used. These are only embedded as HTML links in the page, so that no connection is established with the servers of the respective provider when our website is called up. If you click on one of the buttons, the website of the respective social network opens in a new window of your browser. There you can, for example, press the Like or Share button.
If you have given consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR to the respective social media provider, your data will be automatically collected and stored for market research and advertising purposes when you visit our online presence on the social media mentioned above. From this, usage profiles can be created using pseudonyms. These can be used to show advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. For this, cookies are usually used. What cookies are was already explained above. For detailed information on the processing and use of data by the respective social media provider, as well as a contact possibility and your related rights and settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the providers linked below. If you still need help in this respect, you can contact us.
Instagram is an offering of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook Ireland"). The information collected automatically by Facebook Ireland about your use of our online presence on Instagram is usually transmitted to a server of Facebook, Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA and stored there. There is no adequacy decision of the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with them is based on the standard data protection clauses of the European Commission. The processing of data in the context of visiting an Instagram fan page is based on an agreement between joint controllers according to Art. 26 DSGVO. Further information (information on Insights data) can be accessed here [LINK]; [Link to Instagram Privacy Center].
BLACK SUMMER ARTISTS opposes the use of contact information published under the obligation of the imprint for sending unsolicited advertising and information material.
We also use Google Fonts from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website. Google Fonts is an interactive directory with more than 1,400 fonts and is made available for free use by Google LLC, which can be reached at the same address. No adequacy decision of the European Commission is available for the USA.
Many of these typefaces are released under free software licenses, so they can be used freely without having to pay any licensing fees. Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all typefaces so that we can optimize our website. In addition, Google Fonts can be used on your own website and do not have to be uploaded to your own server. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, saving bandwidth and being especially beneficial for use on mobile devices. The low file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors (e.g. optical distortion in the display). The use of Google Fonts minimizes cross-platform problems through a fast content delivery network (CDN). Google Fonts supports all common browsers and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems. This makes the use of Google Fonts essential to present our website in good quality.
We use Google Fonts so that our entire appearance can be as appealing as possible. This gives rise to our "legitimate interest" pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR in the processing of personal data.
No cookies are stored in your browser for the use of Google Fonts and you do not have to log in or enter a password. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are processed completely separately from all other Google services. This is also the case if you have a Google account. No Google account data is transmitted to Google during the use of Google Fonts. According to its own statement, Google records the use of (Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)) and the fonts used and stores this data securely.
If you visit our website, the fonts will be loaded from a Google server. Through this external call, data will be transmitted to the Google servers. Google also recognizes from the IP address that our website is being visited by means of a device served by them or via your internet connection. The data transmission takes place via an Application Programming Interface (API). The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the collection, storage and use of end user data to what is necessary for an efficient provision of fonts.
Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google, making them secure. By collecting usage statistics, Google can determine the popularity of the fonts. The results are published on Google's internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites are using Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts' BigQuery database. BigQuery is a web service from Google for businesses that want to move and analyze large amounts of data. It should also be noted that each Google Font request automatically transmits information such as IP address, language settings, browser screen resolution, browser version, and browser name to the Google-operated server. Whether this data is stored or not is not clearly ascertainable or clearly communicated by Google.
Google stores requests for CSS assets on their servers, located mainly outside of the EU, for one day. This allows us to use Google Stylesheets to use fonts. A Stylesheet is a template format that can easily and quickly change the design or font of a website.
Google stores font files for one year in order to improve the loading time of webpages in general. When millions of webpages point to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and appear instantly on all other webpages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files in order to reduce the file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.
The data stored by Google for a day or a year cannot be simply deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact the Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311141511.
Further information about Google Fonts can be found on https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=311141511. Google also makes statements about data protection matters there, but detailed information about data storage is not included there either. It is therefore very difficult and almost impossible to obtain precise information from Google about stored data. On what data is generally collected by Google and how it is used, you can also find out at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
You can therefore only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.
