Data protection declaration
We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of müllermusic Veranstaltungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG. Using the internet pages of müllermusic Veranstaltungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG is basically possible without revealing any personal data. If a person concerned wishes to use our company's special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the person concerned.

As controller, müllermusic Veranstaltungstechnik GmbH & Co.

Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have gaps in security so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The following terms, among others, are used in this data protection declaration:
• a) personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person (hereinafter the "person concerned").

The controller or person in charge of the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, body or other position that, alone or collectively with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

However, authorities that may receive personal data under European Union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not considered as recipients.
• j) third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, body or entity other than the person concerned, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor to process the personal data.

• h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on them or, in a similar manner, significantly affects them; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the person concerned and the controller, or (2) is permitted by European Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned; or (3) with the express consent of the person concerned.

• i) Right to revoke a data protection consent
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the person concerned wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.
8. Data protection in job applications and in the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The controller has integrated on this website the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the surveying, collecting and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned has come to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
For web analytics via Google Analytics the controller uses the addition "gat. anonymizeIp". By means of this addition, the IP address of the person concerned’s internet access is shortened and anonymised by Google if the access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another state contracted in the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is facilitated to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google is made aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serve, among other things, Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.
The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the USA. This personal information is stored by Google in the USA. Google may possibly transfer such personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
10. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMO. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly authorised because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, clause 2, DS-BER).
11. Authorized interests in the processing that are being followed by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO, our legitimate interest is in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
12. Time period for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if it is no longer required to fulfil the contract or to initiate a contract.
13. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in partly required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally, for a contract to be concluded, it may be necessary that a person concerned provides us with personal data that must be subsequently processed by us. For example, the person concerned is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
14. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
This data protection declaration was created by the privacy statement generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which acts as External Data Protection Officer Stuttgart, in cooperation with the Cologne data protection lawyer Christian Solmecke.
