Studio Fritz („we“, „us“, „our“) operates the fritz.fm website (hereinafter referred to as the „Service“). The legal, organisational and data processing manager is Constantin Grund. The summonable address is Birkenbusch 42, 53757 Sankt Augustin, Germany.

This page explains our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have regarding that data. We use your data to provide and improve our Service. By using the Service, you consent to the collection and use of information by us in accordance with this policy.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or if you wish to challenge our collection, processing or use of your data in accordance with this policy or for specific purposes, you can contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.

1. Definitions

Unless otherwise defined below, the terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meaning as in Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as GDPR).

  1. Service: Service means both the fritz.fm website operated by Studio Fritz and our consulting services for which you should contact us.
  2. Personal Data: The term Personal Data means data about a living individual who can be identified from that data (or from that data and other information in our possession or likely to come into our possession).
  3. Usage Data: Usage Data is collected automatically and is generated either through the use of the Service or through the infrastructure of the Service itself (for example, for the duration of a page view).
  4. Data Controller: The term Controller means the person means the natural or legal person (alone or jointly with others) who determines the purposes and manner in which any personal data is processed or is to be processed. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy the Controller for your Usage Data is defined in the first paragraph.

  6. Data Subject (or User): By Data Subject we mean any living person who uses our Service and is the subject of Personal Data.

2. Data Collection and Use

We collect various types of data for different purposes in order to improve the Service we provide to you. If you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA), Studio Fritz’s legal basis for the collection and use of Personal Data described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

In accordance with Art. 6, paragraph 1 of the GDPR, Studio Fritz may process your Personal Data for the following reasons:

  1. Because we need to perform a contract with you
  2. Because you have authorised us to do so
  3. Because we have a legitimate interest in carrying out this processing and your rights do not override this legitimate interest
  4. To comply with the law

2.1. Types of data collected

Personal Data

When you use our Service, we may ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you („Personal Information“). Personal Data may include (but is not limited to) e-mail address, first and last name, telephone number, postal address, Cookies and Usage Data.

We may use your Personal Information to send you newsletters, communications or promotions and other information that may be of interest to you. You may choose not to receive any communications from us or to receive only certain communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link or by following the instructions in each email we send.

Usage and Access Data

For technical reasons, including ensuring the security, stability and quality of the website, we may also collect information about how the Service is accessed and used („Usage and Access Data“). This data may include information such as the Internet Protocol address (the „IP address“) of your computer; browser type and version, the pages of our Service you visit, the date and time of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. This data is stored as a log file, which is automatically transmitted to us from your browser.

This collected data will be temporarily stored, but will not be associated with your person or shared with other data about you. This storage is carried out in accordance with Art. 6, paragraph 1, point f) of the GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in this data as it contributes to the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

We reserve the right to verify Usage and Access Data at a later stage if there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use of our Services based on concrete evidence. In the event of a concrete suspicion of a criminal act related to our Services or if necessary for security reasons, we may retain IP addresses for a limited time in log files.

Tracking and Cookies

We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies to track activities on our Service, and in doing so we retain certain data. Cookies are small data files such as anonymous unique identifiers. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and are stored on your device. The use of cookies helps to improve the user experience and security of our Services. Other tracking technologies such as pixels, tags and scripts are also used to collect and track information and to improve and analyse our Service.

Cookies that are necessary for the performance of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain desirable functions are stored according to Art. 6, paragraph 1, point f) GDPR. The operator of a website has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the optimised provision of its Service without technical interruptions.

You can instruct your browser to reject some or all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is sent or to enable automatic deletion of all cookies when you close your browser. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use certain features of our Service.

Examples of the cookies we use:

Session Cookies: We use Session Cookies to operate our Service. They are automatically deleted at the end of your activity.
Preference Cookies: We use Preference Cookies to remember your preferences and settings.
Security Cookies: We use Security Cookies for security purposes.

User Account

You have the possibility to create a user account on our website. For this purpose we need the Personal Data that you are asked for at login: Basic data such as name and address, communication data (e.g. your email address) as well as login information (username and password). To log in again afterwards, only the email address, the user name and the password you have chosen will be required.

In addition, we store the date of your last visit (e.g. registration, login, clicking links) as part of your account. The legal basis for the processing of this data is your consent according to Art. 6, paragraph 1, point a) of the GDPR.

At any time, you can ask us to delete your user account. A notification in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) is quite sufficient. In this case we will immediately delete your Personal Data, unless there is a legal duty to retain it.

Contact by e-mail/contact form

When you contact us (e.g. by using the contact form on the website or by e-mail), we process your data in order to be able to respond to your request and in case of follow-up questions. Additional Personal Data will only be processed if you give your consent (Art. 6, paragraph 1, point a) GDPR) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6, paragraph 1, point f) GDPR). A legitimate interest is for example to reply to your message.

User Content

We may offer you the opportunity to post comments, questions, answers, opinions or assessments (hereafter referred to as contributions) on our website. When you use such a service, we process and publish your contribution, the date and time of submission as well as, if applicable, the pseudonym you used.

The legal basis for processing this data is your consent according to Art. 6, paragraph 1, point a) of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time for the future. A notification in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) is quite sufficient.

In addition, we also process your IP address and your email address. The IP address is stored because we have a legitimate interest in taking the necessary steps in case your contribution infringes on the rights of third parties or if there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal action.

Facebook

In order to advertise our products and services and to communicate with prospective customers, we ensure that our company is visible on the Facebook platform. We are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland, for this social network platform.

We have laid down the provisions applicable to this joint responsibility in an agreement on the various obligations arising from the GDPR. This agreement, from which certain reciprocal obligations arise, can be found at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

The legal basis governing the personal data processing operations initiated and described below is Art. 6 paragraph 1 point f of the RGPD. The analysis, communication and advertising of our products and services constitute our legitimate interest within the meaning of this regulation.

When visiting our website on the Facebook platform, certain user data (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) will be processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as the operating company of the platform in the EU. The user data is used for statistical purposes, in order to collect information about the impact of our company’s visibility on Facebook. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for advertising and market research purposes and to create user profiles, which may be used by Facebook Ireland Ltd. to serve ads to users based on their interests, both on and off the Facebook platform. If the user is already logged in to his or her Facebook account at the time of the visit, Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also associate this data with the corresponding user account.

In the event that the user makes contact with us on Facebook, the Personal Data entered will be used to process the request. We will ensure the deletion of this user data as soon as the user’s request is deemed to have been properly processed and insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain it, for example in the case of the subsequent performance of a contract.

In order to process data, cookies may be installed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. If the user does not want this processing to take place, the installation of cookies can be prevented by setting the appropriate parameters in the Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can also be deleted at any time. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, it is possible that he or she will not be able to use all of Facebook’s features to their full extent.

It cannot be ruled out that data may be processed via Facebook Ireland Ltd. or possibly via Facebook Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. Facebook Inc. is certified as a member of the EU-US Privacy Shield and therefore guarantees that the data processing in the United States complies with the applicable data protection regulations in the EU.
