We will pass on your data to service providers for the following purposes:

• dispatch of competition prizes and/or

c. Evaluation function on the website

Certain information will be saved in connection with the comment function on this site. This will include your comment, the time the comment was written, your email address and, if you are not posting anonymously, the user name you have chosen.


• IP address storage
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. We do not check comments on our site before they are posted therefore we need these data in order to be able to take action against the poster in case of any violation of rights, such as the use of abusive language or propaganda.


• Storage period for comments
The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) will be stored and will remain on our website until the content to which the comments refer has been completely deleted or the comments must be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. offensive comments).

In some cases, the selected payment service providers will also collect these data themselves if you open an account with them.

The data privacy statement issued by the respective payment service provider will apply in this respect.

6. Web analysis using Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.


Google Analytics uses “cookies” which are text files placed on your computer enabling an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you enable the IP address anonymity function on this website, however, then your IP address will be abbreviated beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union and in other signatories to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website traffic, and to provide us with additional services in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be associated with other data held by Google. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use the full range of functions on this website.



We use the “Demographics and Interests” feature in Google Analytics which allows us to obtain reports on age, gender and interest categories. This information is sourced from Google’s interest-based advertising and from visitor data gathered by third-party providers and cannot be associated with any particular person. You can deactivate this function at any time through the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics.



You may also prevent Google from tracking and processing the data generated by the cookies relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by clicking on the following link and downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en ).


Please note that the Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website in order to guarantee anonymous logging of IP addresses (referred to as IP masking).


You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the “Cookie Consent” link in the footer and then disabling the “Statistics” group of cookies. The resulting opt-out cookie will prevent your data from being logged on future visits to this website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site on mobile devices.


More information about the conditions of use and data protection can be found under https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en or under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en .


We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR in that data are processed to analyse patterns of use and this is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

7. Facebook Pixel and retargeting

Our website uses the pixel provided by Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) as a means of conversion tracking.


This allows us to track the actions of site visitors when they have been redirected to the provider’s website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and enables changes to be made to optimise future advertising.



The data collected are anonymous to us as the operator of this website so we cannot trace the identity of the users. The data are stored and processed by Facebook, however, thereby allowing a connection to the relevant user profile and enabling Facebook to use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook policy on data usage. This allows Facebook to place advertisements on Facebook pages and on pages outside Facebook. As the site operator, we have no control over this use of the data. Further information on the protection of your privacy can be found in the Facebook privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .



The website also uses the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function on Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”) in order to be able to contact you again within six months. This means that users of the website can be shown interest-based advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) when they visit Facebook or other social networks and websites which also use the service. In doing so, we pursue our interest in showing you advertisements which are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. When you use our website, we are unable to trace your identity as a person. It is therefore completely anonymous.



Due to the marketing tools we use, your browser will automatically establish a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no control over the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool, and the information we give you therefore reflects our knowledge at any given time. Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have visited the relevant page of our website or that you have clicked on an advertisement of ours. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address and other identifying features.



Further information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the possible settings for protecting your privacy, can be found in the Facebook privacy policy which is available in various places, such as https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audien... and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation . If you wish to object to the use of Facebook Website Custom Audiences, you may do so at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audien.... It is possible for logged-in users to deactivate the “Facebook Custom Audiences” function under https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_ . If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable usage-based advertising by Facebook on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website at https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ .


You can also deactivate the “Facebook Pixel” through our website by clicking on the link in the “Cookie Consent” footer and there disabling the “Marketing” cookies.


Further information on the processing of data by Facebook can be found under https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.


The legal basis for this processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

8. Pinterest Pixel

Our website uses the conversion tracking technology developed by the social network Pinterest (Pinterest Europe Limited, Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland) which enables us to identify visitors to our website who have already taken an interest in our website and our content/services and are Pinterest members and to show them advertisements on Pinterest which are relevant to them and offers on Pinterest which may be of interest to them. A Pinterest conversion tracking pixel is integrated into our pages for this purpose, and when you visit our website it tells Pinterest that you have visited our website and identifies the sections which were of interest to you.

If you took an interest in the subscriptions on our website, for example, you may be shown an advertisement on Pinterest about our subscriptions.



Further information on the processing of data by Pinterest can be found under https://policy.pinterest.com/en-gb/privacy-policy .

You can deactivate the “Pinterest Pixel” function by clicking on the “Cookie Consent” link in the footer and there disabling the “Marketing” group of cookies. You can also opt out of the collection of data for the display of interest-based advertising on Pinterest at any time in your account settings on Pinterest under https://www.pinterest.com/settings (where you can go to “Edit personalization settings” and uncheck “Use information from our partners to improve which recommendations and ads you see” on Pinterest) or under https://help.pinterest.com/en-gb/article/personalization-and-data#info-ad (where you can uncheck the relevant box under “Edit personalization settings”).

The legal basis for this processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

9. Google Conversion Tracking

We use the Google Ads Conversion offer to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your end device. These cookies lose their validity within 90 days at the latest and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
You can deactivate interest-based Google ads on Google in your browser by activating the "Off" button at https://adssettings.google.de/authenticated or by deactivating it at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. At the same time, you can revoke Google Ads Conversion Tracking by clicking on the "Cookie Consent" link in the footer and disabling the “Marketing” group of cookies there.

10. Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our website. The service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

The reCAPTCHA service is used to check whether data are entered on our website (e.g. on a contact form) by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA will analyse the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. When conducting the analysis, reCAPTCHA will evaluate various pieces of information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis are forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not told that an analysis is taking place.
The legal basis for this processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

More information on the management of user data can be found in the Google data privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en .

15. YouTube

We have YouTube videos embedded on our website. These videos are stored on https://www.youtube.com . They are displayed on our website using a “framing” technology and can be played here directly. The embedding process takes place in the “privacy-enhanced mode” so that none of your data are transferred to YouTube before you have given your consent by playing the video.

For integration and display of music content, our website uses plugins from Spotify. Provider of the portal is Spotify AB Regeringsgatan 19, Stockholm, 111 53, Sweden

When a page with integrated Spotify plugin is called, a connection to the Spotify servers is established. This tells Spotify which of our pages you have visited. Spotify learns your IP address even if you are not logged in or do not have an account with Spotify.
Spotify can match your browsing behavior directly to your personal profile. By logging out you have the possibility to prevent this.
