1. GENERAL

By operating our websites with the URL initiative-musik.de, deutscher-jazzpreis.de, german-haus.com and applaus-award.de (hereinafter referred to individually or collectively as “website”), we process personal data. We treat this data confidentially and process it in accordance with the applicable laws – in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). With our Privacy Policy, we want to inform you about what personal data we collect from you, for what purposes and on what legal basis we use it and, if applicable, to whom we disclose it. Furthermore, we will explain to you which rights you are entitled to in order to protect and enforce your data protection.

2. TERMS

Our data protection regulations contain technical terms that are in the GDPR and the BDSG. For your better understanding, we would like to explain these terms in simple terms in advance:

2.1 Personal data

“Personal data” means all information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). Information relating to an identified person may,for example, be the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data also includes data for which the identity is not immediately apparent but which can be de-termined by combining one’s own or third-party information and thus finding out who the person is. A person becomes identifiable, for example, by providing his or her address or bank details, date of birth or user name, IP address and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows an in-ference to a person.

2.2 Processing

Art. 4 para. 2 GDPR defines “processing” as any operation involving personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, capture, administration, classification, recording, amendment, printing, making available, use, disclosure, sharing, dissemination, provision, comparison, linking, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.

Within the framework of the website, we process the personal data of you listed in detail below in section IV. We only process data from you that you actively provide on the website (e.g. by filling out forms) or that you automatically provide when using our offers.
Your data will be processed exclusively by us and will not be sold, lent or passed on to third parties. If we use the help of external service providers to process your personal data, this is done within the framework of so-called data processing agreements, in which we as the client are authorised to issue instructions to our contractors. We use external service providers for the hosting and maintenance of our website. We host our website at jweiland.net, Jochen Weiland (address: Echterdinger Straße 57, Gebäude 9, 70794 Filder-stadt, Germany) in the data centre location Filderstadt, Germany. If further external service providers are used for individual processing operations listed in section IV, they will be named there.
As a matter of principle, we do not transfer data to third countries and do not plan to do so. We will pro-vide information about exceptions to this principle in the processing operations described below. Any data transfer to third countries will then take place on the basis of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.

8. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

8.1 Description of processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user’s terminal device when visiting a website. Cookies contain information that enables the recognition of a terminal device and possi-bly certain functions of a website. We distinguish between our own cookies and external, so-called third-party cookies. So-called “session cookies” and “persistent cookies” are used on our site. “Session cookies” are automatically erased when you end your internet session and close the browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your terminal device for a longer period of time. In addition to cookies, we also use other tracking technologies, such as pixels or so-called fingerprinting. If cookies are technically necessary for the operation of our site, your consent is not required for this. All other cookies and tracking technologies that are not technically necessary are only set after you have actively consented to the use of cookies/tracking technologies via our Consent Tool. We use the “Usercentric” service, which is operated by Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Straße 7, 80331 Munich, Germany, to
obtain and document your consent. The consent tool itself saves your selection in a cookie on your end device. This means that you do not need to make a decision about cookies again on a subsequent visit to our website.
You can find out which cookies are used on our website for which purpose, how long they are stored on your end device and which consents you may have already declared in the settings of the Consent tool Complianz – GDPR Cookie Consent.

8.2 Purpose

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly and to offer the functions described in para. 8.1 and to offer the functions described in section 8.1.

8.3 Legal basis

The processing is necessary with regard to technically required cookies, as well as the use of the Consent Tool to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR; § 25 para. 2 TTDSG). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose stated in para. 8.2 named purpose. With regard to the processing of all other cookies/tracking technologies – i.e. those that are not technically necessary – the legal basis is consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG). Such consent is voluntary.

8.4 Storage period, revocation of consent

Cookies are automatically erased at the end of a session or at the end of the specified storage period. Since cookies are stored on your terminal device, you as a user have full control over the use of cookies. By chang-ing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transfer of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be erased. This can also be done automatically. If cookies for our website are deactivated, erased or restricted, it may be that individual functions of our website cannot be used or can only be used to a limited extent. You can revoke any consent you may have given for the use of cookies at any time in the settings of the consent tool with effect for the future.

8.5 Recipients

When third-party cookies are used, data may be transmitted to the corresponding providers of these third-party services. Under certain circumstances, data may also be transferred to third countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. We provide information about the recipients of data and the transmission to third countries in the settings of the Consent Tool or in the corresponding passage for the third-party service in these data protection provisions.

9.4 Storage period

We erase the data as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is usually the case when the respective communication with you has ended.

If legal retention periods prevent deletion, the data will be erased immediately after the legal retention period has expired.

10. NEWSLETTER

10.1 Description of the processing

We send out a newsletter at irregular intervals. In our newsletters we inform you about our funding pro-grammes, activities and how we fulfil our tasks. You will only receive our newsletter if you actively subscribe to our mailing list. You can subscribe by filling out and submitting a newsletter registration form on our website.
For the newsletter registration, only your e-mail address is required. All other details (such as your first name and surname) are voluntary and serve solely to personalise the e-mails. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to carry out and verify newsletter registrations. Registration takes place in several steps. First, you register for the newsletter on our website. You will then receive an e-mail from us at the e-mail address you have provided. In this e-mail, we ask you to confirm that you have actually registered for the newsletter and wish to receive it. You confirm by clicking the confirmation link in the e-mail. Only after suc-cessful confirmation will we add you to our newsletter distribution list and send you future e-mails. As part of the double opt-in process, we save the date, time and your IP addresses both during registration and confirmation.
If you use our services on our website, e.g. apply for grant programs and enter your e-mail address, this may subsequently be used by us to send a so-called existing customer newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar programs or services will be sent via the newsletter.

10.2 Purpose

The processing takes place in order to offer the newsletter function and to be able to send newsletter emails to subscribers and existing customers. The collection and storage of date, time and IP addresses when subscribing to the newsletter serves to document consent given and to protect against the misuse of email addresses.

10.3 Legal basis

For our subscriber newsletter, processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. You can access the declaration of consent on our website at any time. Your consent is voluntary. The collection and storage of the date, time and IP addresses when subscribing to the newsletter is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose stated in para. 10.2 named purpose.
In the case of our newsletter for existing customers, processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in order to protect the overriding interests of the controller. Our legitimate interest lies in direct ad-vertising to existing customers. This is permissible within the framework of Section 7 (3) UWG, which we observe.
10.4 Storage period and revocation of consentIf you do
not confirm your subscription to our newsletter within 24 hours of receiving the corresponding registration e-mail, your data will be automatically erased. We process your personal data for the duration of your newsletter subscription. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time by revoking your consent. You can also object to the use of your e-mail address to send our newsletter to existing customers at any time. A simple declaration is sufficient (by e-mail to mail@initiative-musik.de or by post to Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft mbH, Friedrichstraße 122). You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every newsletter email or here […]. With the revocation of your consent, you will no longer be sent newsletters and your personal data will be removed from our ac-tive distribution list.

10.5 Recipients and transfer to third countries:

Clever Reach is a service provided by CleverReach GmbH & Co KG, Schafjückenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, Germany. Further information on data protection at Cleverreach can be found at www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/datenschutz-sicherheit/.

11. SOCIAL NETWORKS

11.1 Description of processing

Our website does not use so-called social media plugins. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tik Tok and LinkedIn logos displayed on our website are merely linked to the corresponding profiles of our compa-ny on the social networks. A data transfer to the social networks does not take place with the integration of the logos. If you click on one of the logos, you will only be redirected to the external website of the respec-tive social network.
However, our profiles within the social networks constitute data processing. If you are logged in to the re-spective social network when you visit such a profile, this information will be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with our profile, e.g. comment, “share”, “like” or “retweet” a post, this information will also be stored in your user account. As a rule, your interactions with our profile can also be viewed by us.
On the social networks YouTube, Tik Tok, Facebook and Instagram, we have the possibility to obtain statis-tical data about the use of our Facebook page or our Instagram profile via the so-called “Insights” function. These statistics are provided by Facebook and Instagram. The “Insights” function cannot be disabled. We cannot decide to turn this feature on or off. It is available to all Facebook fan page operators and all Insta-gram business account operators, regardless of whether you use the Insights function or not.
We are provided with the following data via Facebook Insights for a selectable period of time in anony-mised form with regard to fans, subscribers, people reached and people interacting: Total page views, likes including origin, page activity, post interactions, reach, post reach (broken down into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared content, replies and demographic analysis, i.e. country of origin, gender and age. In the Insights statistics, it is not possible for us to identify subscribers and fans of our site and to view their profiles.
Furthermore, we receive anonymised data about the development and reach of our Instagram profiles, as well as the posts, stories and videos we post there, via Instagram insights. We also receive statistical infor-mation on the place of origin, gender and age of the subscribers to our Instagram profile in the Instagram insights. On the social network LinkedIn, we have the possibility to obtain statistical data about the use of our LinkedIn profile via the so-called “Insights” function.
The social networks with which you communicate store your data using pseudonyms as usage profiles and use them for advertising purposes and market research. For example, you may be shown advertisements within the social network and on other third-party websites that match your presumed interests. Cookies are usually used for this purpose, which the social network stores on your end device. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, for the exercise of which you must contact the social networks directly.

11.2 Purpose

We maintain profiles on the aforementioned social networks for the purpose of public relations and corpo-rate communication with customers and interested parties. We use the “Insights” function of social media platforms to evaluate the reach of our posts on the social network and to make them more appealing to our visitors in the future.

11.3 Legal basis

The legal basis for data processing within the scope of our profiles on social networks is the protection of our overriding legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in point 11.2 named purpose. If you are asked for consent by the respective operator of a social network, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Data processing with regard to our presence on Face-book, Instagram and LinkedIn is also carried out on the basis of joint responsibility in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR.

When replacing fonts, we have opted for a data protection-friendly solution. We do not use external services such as Google Fonts or Adobe Fonts. Instead, we store the fonts to be replaced locally on our server.

19.1 Description of processing

Our website uses the remarketing service “Facebook Pixel”, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. Cali-fornia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The “Facebook Pixel” enables us to display advertise-ments on the social network that are targeted to those Facebook users who have shown interest in our offer – e.g. through a previous visit to our website. With the help of the “Facebook Pixel”, we can also track and evaluate the effectiveness and reach of our advertising on Facebook by recording whether Facebook users interact with our advertisements on the social network by clicking on the advertisements to be redi-rected to our website. When you visit our website, a connection is therefore established to the Facebook servers and the “Facebook pixel” is embedded in our website. In addition, Facebook may store a cookie on your terminal device (see above para. 8.). If you are logged in to Facebook or log in to Facebook later, your visit to our website will be assigned to your user account. The data collected about you by means of the “Facebook Pixel” is anonymous for us. They do not provide us with any information about your person. However, it is possible for Facebook to establish a connection to your user profile. Data processing by Face-book is carried out in accordance with the company’s data policy, which can be found at www.facebook.com/policy.php.

19.2 Purpose

The processing takes place in order to carry out targeted online advertising for our own offers and to be able to evaluate its effectiveness and reach.

19.3 Legal basis

The processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. This is obtained by us via the consent tool (see para. 8.1). Such consent is voluntary.

20. GOOGLE ADS CONVERSION

20.1 Description of the processing

Our website uses the advertising service “Google Ads Conversion”, which is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). With the help of Google Ads Conversions, we can place advertisements on external websites in order to draw your atten-tion to our offers there. In addition, the service enables us to determine the reach and success of individual advertising measures. Our advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this pur-pose, Google uses so-called “Ad Server” cookies, which are used to measure certain parameters for measur-ing success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, a cookie will be stored by Google Ads in your end device (see para. 8.). According to Google, these cookies are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (fre-quency), 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 for this cookie. The cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser. If you visit websites of a Google Ads customer and the cookie stored on your end device has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to our website. A different cookie is assigned to each Google Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. We ourselves do not process any personal data with our Google Adwords advertising measures. Google only provides us with statistical evaluations. These evaluations enable us to see which of the advertising measures used are par-ticularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. When you visit our website, a connection is there-fore established to the Google servers. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data col-lected by Google through the use of Google Ads Conversion and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Google Ads Conversion, Google receives the information which subpage of our website you have called up 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, it is still possible for Google to obtain and store your IP address.
