1. General

1. Data collection and scope of use

We collect and use personal data only if and insofar as this is necessary for the implementation or use of the respective service or function. The term “personal data” means all individual details about an identified or identifiable natural person, such as their contact details or the content of entries in (contact) forms. On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This may be data that you enter in a contact form, for example. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view).

2. Purposes and legal bases of data processing

Part of the personal data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
We collect and process personal data only when:

  • you have given your express consent to this,
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
  • the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data processed.

Insofar as we collect, process or use personal data, we comply with the applicable statutory provisions, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. In particular, the data you provide to us will not be used for advertising purposes.

3. Disclosure of personal data

We disclose personal data collected via our website to state institutions, authorities and courts if we are obliged to do so or if this is necessary for legal defence or assertion of rights. Unless expressly stated in this Privacy Notice, we do not transfer personal data outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). If we transfer personal (or relatable) data (e.g. IP addresses) to third countries in accordance with this data protection information, we hereby inform you that a different level of data protection may apply there which does not correspond to that of the EU. By using our website, you consent to the transfer to such a country.
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. For the operation of the website, we may use technical service providers as part of a commissioned processing of personal data. If personal data is transferred to these service providers, this is done within the scope of a commissioned processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.

4. Storage period and deletion of personal data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose ceases to apply or these periods expire, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

5. Details on data collection and processing when visiting the website

(1) Categories of personal data
Categories of personal data of website visitors that may be processed by the controller in the course of their visit to the website:

  • IP address
  • Technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view)
  • Contact information and information entered in contact forms

Website visitors are natural persons who access the contents of the website via any terminal device and any supported internet browser and, if applicable, use functions offered on the pages.

(2) Encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

(3) Cookies
Some of our websites use so-called cookies. These serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of parts of our website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you have requested are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. As a website operator, TV1 GmbH has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services.

As a website operator, we automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources. Server log files are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As a website operator, TV1 GmbH has a legitimate interest in the use of information from server log files for the technically error-free provision of its services.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry).

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected by this.

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
