3. Which of your data do we process? And for what purposes?

If we have received data from you, we will generally only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it.

  • Contact details to get in touch
  • Contact details for arrangements during creative work
  • Product data (almost never personal) for creative work

Data processing for other purposes shall only be considered if the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 6 (4) of the GDPR are met. We will, of course, comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 (3) DSGVO and Art. 14 (4) DSGVO in this case.

4. What is the legal basis for this?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle – unless there are still specific legal provisions – Art. 6 DSGVO. The following possibilities in particular come into consideration here:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
  • Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO)

If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO.

5. How long will the data be stored? 

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist – e.g. under commercial law or tax law – the personal data concerned will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further need for processing. If there is no longer a need, the data will be deleted.

As a matter of principle, we carry out an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the volume of data, this review is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can at any time (see below) request information about the data we have stored about you and, if it is not necessary, request deletion of the data or restriction of processing.

6. To which recipients is the data passed on?

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, the transfer is permissible on the basis of a balancing of interests in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, we are legally obligated to the transfer or you have given your consent in this respect.

7. Where is the data processed?

Your personal data is processed by us exclusively on our server systems in Germany.

8. Your rights as a “data subject

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data we process about you. 

In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require proof from you that you are the person you claim to be. 

Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law.

Furthermore, you have a right to object to the processing within the scope of the legal requirements. The same applies to a right to data portability.

In particular, you have the right to object to the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) and (2) DSGVO, if this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests.

9. Right of appeal

You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a data protection supervisory authority.
