When visiting each of these platforms, you as a user agree to the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines of the corresponding operator.
Please be aware that user data may also be processed outside the European Union. This may present risks for users – making it more difficult for them to exercise their rights, for example.

In all the above cases, you have the right to request a free copy of your personal data that we have processed from the data processor. We are entitled to charge an appropriate administrative fee for all additional copies that you request or which go beyond the data subject's right to information.
You have the right to request the immediate rectification of your incorrect personal data and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
You can contact our data protection officer or the data controller at any time if you wish to exercise your right to rectification.
You have the right to demand the immediate erasure of your data (“right to be forgotten”) especially if the storage of the data is no longer necessary, if you revoke your consent to data processing, if your data was processed unlawfully or was collected unlawfully and if there is a legal obligation to erase under EU or national law.
However, the right to be forgotten shall not apply if there is an overriding right to freedom of expression or information, if data storage is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. storage obligations), if archiving purposes prevent erasure or if the storage serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
You have the right to request the controller to restrict the processing of your data if you dispute the data's accuracy, if the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your personal data and instead request a restriction of its processing, if the necessity for the processing purpose ceases or if you have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21(1), as long as it is has not yet been established whether there are any legitimate reasons on our part which outweigh yours.
You have the right to the portability of your personal data which you have provided to our company in a standard format, so that you can have your personal data transmitted to another controller without hindrance, provided, for example, that you have given your consent and the processing is carried out using an automated procedure.
You have the right to object at any time to the collection, processing or use of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising or market and opinion research as well as general business data processing, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. Furthermore, you cannot exercise your right to object if a statutory provision stipulates or requires the data’s collection, processing or use.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you believe there has been an infringement in the processing of your personal data.
You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time and without giving reasons. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us prior to the EU General Data Protection Regulation’s entry into force.
Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis for the processing of personal data for which we obtain the data subject’s consent.
Article 6(6) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a contractual party. This provision also covers processing operations necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.
Article 6(1)(c) GDPR is the legal basis for a processing of personal data necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
Article 6(1)(f) GDPR is the legal basis for processing that is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and if the data subject’s interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest. Our company’s legitimate interest lies in the performance of our business activities and in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of our online offer’s security.
We will only transfer data if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case if state institutions (e.g. law enforcement authorities) request information in writing or if there is a court order.
No personal data will be transferred to so-called third countries outside the EU/EEA.

Vimeo's data protection provisions, available at https://vimeo.com/privacy, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Vimeo.
Please note that in specific cases (e.g. tax regulations) the provision of personal data is prescribed by law or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information concerning the contractual partner(s)). For instance, the conclusion of a contract may require the respective person/contractual partner to make available their personal data so that we can process their request (e.g. an order) in the first place. An obligation to provide personal data arises especially when concluding contracts. In such cases, a contract cannot be concluded with the person concerned if no personal data is provided. A data subject may contact our data protection officer or the data controller before providing personal data. The data protection officer or the controller shall then inform the data subject whether the provision of the required personal data is statutorily or contractually stipulated or is necessary for the contract’s conclusion, and whether the data subject's concerns give rise to an obligation to provide the personal data or what consequences the failure to provide the requested data will have for the data subject.
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling in our business relations.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have provided us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you have cancelled your subscription.
This website uses GetResponse for sending newsletters. Provider is GetResponse Sp.z o.o., ul. ARKONSKA 6/A3, 80-387 GEDANSK, Poland.
GetResponse is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of newsletter subscription will be stored on the servers of GetResponse.
When we send newsletters using GetResponse, we can determine whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked if necessary.
GetResponse also allows us to divide the newsletter recipients according to different categories (so-called tagging). The newsletter recipients can be divided, for example, by gender, personal interests (e.g., games or visual effects) or their activity (e.g., student or professional). By doing so, we can better adapt the newsletter to the respective target groups and, for example, make targeted mailings to smaller groups. For further information, please visit: www.getresponse.de.
If you do not wish to have your data analyized by GetResponse, you must therefore unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message.
