Data privacy

We thank you for visiting our website at www.bremenradiohallrecords.de. To ensure that you feel safe and comfortable when browsing our website, we would like to inform you about how we handle your personal data. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, process, and disclose your information, including personal information, in conjunction with your access to and use of our website.

Data Controller

When this policy mentions “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to Verein Freunde des Sendesaales e. V., Bürgermeister-Spitta-Allee 45, 28329 Bremen, Germany, the company that is responsible for your information under this Privacy Policy (the “Data Controller”).

Storing of IP Addresses

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We use information that we receive and store during your visit to our website exclusively for internal purposes and to improve the design of the website, including sub-pages. If necessary for the purpose of defending against attacks that impair the functionality of our website (hacker attacks, malware, denial of service attacks, spam), we may access your computer’s IP address for this purpose alone, which is stored by our telecommunications provider as a security measure for a period of seven days. After this period has elapsed, we will either delete or anonymize the IP address. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

Usage Information

When you visit our website, we temporarily store usage information on our web server for statistical purposes in the form of a log in order to improve the quality of our website. This data record consists of:

•    The page from which the file was requested
•    The name of the file
•    The date and time the file was accessed
•    The quantity of data transferred
•    The status of access (file transfered, file not found)
•    A description of the type of web browser used to access the file
•    The IP address of the computer accessing the file

We use this information to enable access to our website, to control and administer our systems, and to improve the design of our website. The data stored is stored in anonymized form. This means it is not possible to create personal user profiles based on this information. Data about individuals or their individual behavior is not collected.

Data Transfers to Third Parties

We do not transfer your personal data to third parties without your express consent.


Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and accessed on your device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored after each individual session. Cookies may contain data that make it possible to recognize the device used to access our site across multiple visits. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information related to certain settings that are not personally identifiable.

We use both session cookies and permanent cookies on our website. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(F) of the GDPR and in the interest of optimizing or enabling the use of and adapting the appearance of our website.

You can configure your browser so that it informs you when cookies are being saved, thereby making the use of cookies more transparent. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent new cookies from being saved. Please note that if you disable the use of cookies, our website may not display properly and some of its features may no longer be supported.

Your Rights as a Website User

When it comes to processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:

1. Right of Access (Art. 15 of the GDPR):

2. Right to Rectification and Right to Erasure (Art. 16 and 17 of the GDPR):
You have the right to immediately request the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.
You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be erased immediately if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 of the GDPR applies in detail, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected.

3. Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 of the GDPR):
You have the right to request a restriction of processing for the duration of a review if any of the conditions specified in Art. 18 of the GDPR have been met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to the processing.

In certain cases (which are outlined in detail in Article 20 of the GDPR), you have the right to obtain from us your personal data in a structured, standard, machine-readable format or to request the transfer of such data to a third party.

If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (data processing on the grounds of legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. If you make such an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
