- the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at your request (Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR);
- the data processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (Art. 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR), or
- the data processing is necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests or those of a third party, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms requiring the protection of personal data override (Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR).

In the following provisions of this data protection declaration, we explain which of the legal bases listed in paragraph 2 or other legal bases we use to process your personal data in individual cases.

In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. They have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked. Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer contract conclusions or similar services jointly with partners.

We operate publicly accessible profiles on the social media platforms listed below for the purposes of presenting and increasing awareness of our association, providing information, advertising our events and activities, processing any inquiries from association members, interested parties, music lovers, musicians and other users, and maintaining relationships and interaction (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Our legitimate interests lie in the timely and supportive information and interaction opportunities. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. If your message is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

For these information services, we make use of the technical platform and services of the providers listed below under Sections 5.1 and 5.2. You are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, this may be necessary for individual functionalities of our profiles on social media platforms. These functionalities will not be available to you or only to a limited extent if you do not provide us with your personal data. We would also like to point out that you use our appearances on social media platforms and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies, in particular, to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our websites, the providers of the social media platforms collect, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your terminal device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the accounts, with statistical information about interactions with us. For further details, please refer to the following notes on the respective providers.

The data collected about you in this context will be processed by the platforms and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union, in particular the USA. All of the aforementioned providers claim to maintain an adequate level of data protection equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield, and we have concluded the standard data protection clauses with the companies.

We are not aware of how the social media platforms use the data from your visit to our account and interaction with our posts for their own purposes, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties. The data processing may differ depending on whether you are registered and logged in to the social network or visit the site as a non-registered and/or non-logged-in user. When you access a post or the account, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform. If you are currently logged in as a user, a cookie on your terminal device can be used to track how you have moved around the network. Via buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for the platforms to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your respective profile. On the basis of this data, content or advertising can be offered which is tailored to you. If you want to avoid this, you should log out or disable the "stay logged in" feature, delete the cookies present on your device and restart your browser.

We, as the provider of the information service, furthermore only process the data from your use of our service that you provide to us and that requires interaction. For example, if you ask a question that we can only answer by email, we will store your information in accordance with the general principles of our data processing, which we have described in this Privacy Policy.

What information the social media platform receives and how it is used is described by the providers in their privacy policies (see link in the following explanation of the respective providers).

(b) we have a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality of the App, its error-free operation and the provision of a market and interest-oriented service that outweighs your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

With regard to the processing of personal data concerning you, you are entitled to the rights listed below under letters a - h in accordance with the legal requirements. Please contact us or our data protection officer for this purpose. The contact details can be found under Section 1.

a) Right to information
In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you can request confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us. In this case, you have the right, pursuant to Art. 15(1) GDPR, to information about the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom we have disclosed or will disclose the personal data, the planned storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period, the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data and to restriction of processing or to object to processing, the existence of a right of complaint to a supervisory authority, the origin of the data if we have not collected your data from you, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, pursuant to Art. 15(2) GDPR, the right to information about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in the context of the transfer of personal data to third countries.

b) Right to rectification
In accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you can demand that we immediately correct and/or complete your personal data, taking into account the purposes of the processing, if your data is incorrect or incomplete.

c) Right to erasure
You may request the immediate erasure of your personal data pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, provided that a reason pursuant to Art. 17(1)(a)-(f) GDPR exists. However, the right to erasure of your personal data does not exist, in particular, insofar as its processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 17(3) GDPR).

d) Right to restriction of processing
You may request that we restrict the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR for as long as we verify the accuracy of your data that you dispute, if you object to the erasure of your data due to unlawful processing and instead request the restriction of the use of your data, if you need your data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or if you have objected to the processing as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate grounds prevail.

e) Right to information
Pursuant to Art. 19 GDPR, we will notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of any rectification or erasure of your personal data or any restriction of its processing pursuant to Art. 16, 17(1) and 18 GDPR, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. According to Art. 19(2) GDPR, you have the right to be informed about these recipients upon request.

f) Right to data portability
Pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to another controller, provided that the other requirements of Art. 20 GDPR are met, in particular that this is technically feasible.

g) Right of objection
Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR, you may object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, to perform a contract with you, which we set out in each case in the above description of the offers. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the situation and, in accordance with Art. 21(1)(2) GDPR, either no longer process the personal data or demonstrate to you our compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms. Further processing is also reserved if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Of course, pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR, you may object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and profiling, insofar as it is related to direct advertising. You can inform us or our data protection officer of your objection using the contact details given in Section 1.

h) Right to withdraw consent
Pursuant to Art. 7(3) GDPR, you have the right to withdraw any data protection consent you may have given us at any time with future effect. However, this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that took place on the basis of your consent up to the time of revocation.

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your data violates data protection regulations, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR. Please contact a supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the location of the potential infringement.
