Employees FEINGUSS BLANK design-line


1. Introduction

We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the "FEINGUSS BLANK GmbH". The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.

4. Technology

4.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

4.2 Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. It may be colltected

  1. the types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),
  4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time the website is accessed,
  6. a truncated internet protocol address (anonymised IP address) and
  7. the accessing system's internet service provider.

No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed

  1. to properly deliver our website content,
  2. to optimise the content of our website as well as to advertise it,
  3. to ensure the continued functioning of our IT systems and our website’s technology
  4. as well as to provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber attack.

This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.


5. Cookies

5.1 General information about cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website.

Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies helps us make it more convenient for you to use our website. For example, we use session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are erased automatically when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you return to our website to use our services, cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have visited our website previously and remember the inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

We also use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and analyse it for the purpose of optimising our services. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have already visited our website when you visit our website again. These cookies are automatically erased after a defined period of time.

5.2 Legal basis for the use of cookies

The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

For all other cookies you have given your consent to this through our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.


6. Contents of our website

6.1 Contact/contact form

Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g. using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.

6.2 Application management/job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).

Legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 88 GDPR, § 26 I BDSG

If applicable, you will receive an invitation to join our talent pool following the application process. This will allow us to continue to consider you in our selection of applicants for suitable vacancies in the future. If we have your consent to do so, we will store your application data in our talent pool in accordance with your consent or any future consent.


7. Newsletters

7.1 Newsletter for regular customers

If you have provided us with your email address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to send you regular emails with offers on products or services from our collection similar to those you have already purchased. We do not require your specific consent for such purposes as per article 7, paragraph 3 of the UWG (Unfair Competition Act). The sole basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in personalised direct marketing in line with article 6, paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. We will not send you any emails should you expressly object to the use of your email address for that purpose. You are entitled to object to the use of your email address for the aforementioned purpose at any time with immediate effect by notifying the data controllers listed in the opening of this statement. By taking this action, you will incur submission fees only in line with basic rates. After receipt of your objection, your email address will immediately be removed for marketing purposes.

7.2 Rapidmail

For analysis purposes, emails sent with Rapidmail, a service of the rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg, Germany, contain so-called "tracking pixels", which connects to the servers of Rapidmail if a newsletter message has been opened. This allows us to see whether a newsletter email has been opened.

We can also use Rapidmail to determine whether and which links in the newsletter are clicked. All links in the email are tracking links that can be used to count your clicks.

You can find more information about Rapidmail’s analytics features under the following link: https://de.rapidmail.wiki/kategorien/statistiken/ (German only).

The legal basis for data processing is your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of data processing carried out previously.

The consent given by you can be withdrawn at any time. You can also prevent the processing at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser accordingly. Also, disabling Java Script in your web browser or installing a Java Script Blocker (such as https://noscript.net or https://www.ghostery.com) may prevent you from storing and transferring personal information. We point out that through these measures may no longer all the features of our website are available.

The data you provide us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter, and will then be erased from both our servers and Rapidmail’s servers after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data we retain for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) shall remain unaffected.

For more information, please refer to Rapidmail’s privacy policy at: https://www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit (German only).


8. Our activities in social networks

To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. If you visit one of our social media pages, we and the provider of the social media network are joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) regarding to the processing operations triggered thereby, which concern personal data.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers
We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g. your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behaviour may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in).

The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.

Since we have no access to these providers’ databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:

9. Web analytics

9.1 Google Analytics

Web analytics with Google Analytics 4

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information collected about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

In Google Analytics 4, the anonymization of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymization, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. During your website visit, your user behavior is recorded in the form of "events". Events can be:

  • Page views
  • First visit to the website
  • Session start
  • Your "click path", interaction with the website
  • Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the end of the page (90%))
  • Clicks on external links
  • internal queries
  • Interaction with videos
  • File downloads
  • Ads seen / clicked
  • Language setting

Also recorded:

  • Your approximate location (region)
  • Your IP address (in shortened form)
  • technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
  • Your Internet provider
  • the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)

Purposes of processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website.

Recipients of the data are/may be

  • Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 DSGVO)
  • Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

It cannot be ruled out that US authorities will access the data stored by Google.

Third-country transfer
Where data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal remedies against access by authorities.

Storage period
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 2 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically every two months.

Legal basis
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit.a DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by calling up the cookie settings here and changing your selection there. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation remains unaffected.

 You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may result in a restriction of functionalities on this and other websites. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by

  • not giving your consent to the cookie setting or by downloading and installing
  • the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics here.

10. Advertising

10.1 Google Ads (formerly AdWords)

Our website uses the functions of Google Ads, which we use to advertise this website in Google’s search results as well as on third party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). To this end, Google places a cookie on your device’s browser, which automatically uses a pseudonymous cookie ID and facilitates interest-based advertising on the basis of the websites you have visited.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

No further processing will take place unless you have consented to Google linking your internet and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalise ads you view online. In this case, if you are logged in to Google during your visit to our website, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create and define target audience lists for cross-device remarketing. Google will temporarily link your personal data with Google Analytics data in order to form target groups.

You can permanently disable the setting of cookies for ad preferences by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

Alternatively, you can contact the Digital Advertising Alliance at www.aboutads.info to find out about the setting of cookies and configure your settings. Finally, you can adjust your browser’s settings in such a way that you are informed about the use of cookies and you only permit the acceptance of cookies on an individual basis or in certain cases; alternatively you may adjust these settings to generally block cookies. Not accepting cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

More information and the privacy policy regarding advertising and Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

10.2 Google Ads with conversion tracking

We have integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run adverts in both Google and Google advertising network search engine results. Google Ads allows an advertiser to predefine keywords that will display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to relevant websites using an automated algorithm and according to predefined keywords.

Google Ads is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Ads is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google's search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website.

If you arrive on our website via a Google advert, what is known as a conversion cookie will be stored on your IT system by Google. A conversion cookie expires after 30 days and is not used to identify you. Provided the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie tells us and Google whether any revenues was generated by a user who arrived on our website via an Ads ad, i.e. if they completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. We then use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users who have been directed to us through Ads ads in order to determine the success or failure of each Ads ad and to optimise our Ads ads for the future. Neither our company nor any other Google Ads advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify you.

Conversion cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time someone visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you are using, is sent to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

You can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Ads can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

You also have the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, you must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the web browsers you use and adjust the settings there as desired.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.


11. Partner and affiliate programmes

11.1 DoubleClick

This website contains components from DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a brand of Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) under which special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with every click or other activities. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on your IT system. The purpose of the cookie is to optimise and display advertising. Among other things, the cookie is used to place and display advertisements relevant to the user and to generate reports on or improve advertising campaigns. In addition, the cookie serves to prevent the same advertisement being displayed multiple times.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement on a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to determine which advertisements have already been displayed on a browser in order to avoid duplicates. Furthermore, DoubleClick is able to capture conversions through the cookie ID.

According to Google a DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier is used to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact.

Each time someone opens an individual page of this website, which is run by us and on which a DoubleClick component is integrated, the DoubleClick component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to send data to Google for online marketing purposes and for the purpose of charging commission. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to charge commission. Among other things, Google can verify that you have clicked on a specific link on our website.

You can prevent cookies being placed by DoubleClick and our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings. Furthermore, cookies already placed can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

The storage of cookies can also be prevented by blocking the cookies of "www.googleadservices.com" in the settings of your web browser (https://www.google.com/settings/ads). Please note that this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies. In addition, interest-based ads can be disabled through the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices. This setting will also be deleted if you delete your cookies

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

For more information and to review DoubleClick by Google's current privacy policy, please visit https://www.google.com/policies/.


12. Plugins and other services

12.1 Google Maps

We use Google Maps (API) on our website, provided through Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographic information. For example, by using this service, you can view our location and make it easier for you to reach us.

When you access sub-pages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google's servers in the US and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether you have no user account with them at all. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analysis it. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google as part of your use of Google Maps, you have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. You will then be unable to use Google Maps and therefore the map displayed on this website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

The Google terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional Google Maps terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/help/terms_maps/.

Detailed information on data protection with respect to the use of Google Maps is available on Google’s website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

12.2 Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect personally identifiable information.

With this tool, "website tags" (i.e. keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed via an interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or customised image you have actively clicked and then record which content on our website is of particular interest to you.

The tool also triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have disabled it at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

12.3 Google WebFonts

Our website uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland for the uniform display of fonts. When you access a website, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google information that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

12.4 YouTube (videos)

We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an online video portal that allows video publishers to freely place video clips and allows other to view, rate and comment on videos free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. Both full film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-generated videos are available via the online portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Each time a visitor opens an individual page of the website run by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, the YouTube component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Additional information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will receive information about the specific sub-page of our website you visit.

If the data subject is logged onto YouTube at the same time as they visit our website, YouTube identifies the specific sub-page of our website your visit when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is accessed. This information is collected through YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.

Through the YouTube component, YouTube and Google receive information that you have visited our website whenever you are logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information transferred to YouTube and Google, you can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

YouTube's privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.


13. Smart material-app

We make the use of our app available to you for voluntary download via the app stores. As with every app download to your mobile device, personal data is also processed when you use our SMART MATERIAL app. We have compiled special information on data protection when using the app for you here at https://www.feinguss-blank.de/en/data-security-blank-app#c2329 - we provide information there on how the app works and what data is used. The information can also be accessed from the app itself.

Information on data processing in the Smart Material app can be found at https://www.feinguss-blank.de/en/data-security-blank-app#c2329


14. 360° company tour (virtual tour)

On our website you have the possibility to visit our company virtually. The virtual tour offers you insights into our production and the working world at FEINGUSS BLANK.

When you participate in the virtual tour, you will be redirected to the website of our service provider VR-EASY. VR-Easy enables us to display videos, panoramic images or 360-degree images as part of the tour. In the process, your IP address will be collected and processed for technical reasons. The services of VR-Easy are provided by VR-EASY GmbH on the servers of Deutsche Telekom. We have concluded an order processing agreement with VR-EASY GmbH, which stipulates that VR-Easy will not use your data for its own purposes, but only to provide the service.

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO in the pictorial and memorable external presentation of our company.

For more information on data processing, please see VR-Easy's privacy policy at https://vr-easy.com/platform/datenschutzerklaerung_de.html.


15. Image recordings on the occasion of our events

At our events, image material of the visitors in the form of photos and video recordings is created on site by our employees or by media partners commissioned by us.

We use the image recordings created to the usual extent for our public relations work and to present our activities in order to increase awareness and to provide information and documentation about the event within the scope of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in exercising our communication rights is based on Art. 12 GG, Art. 19 para. 3 GG as well as with regard to economic activity on Art. 12 GG, Art. 19 para. 3 GG.

For publication we can use all media such as print (offline), television and internet. Online, we use our website as well as possibly special websites of the event itself or of a service provider. We also reserve the right to publish via the social media listed below.

We do not use the image materials produced for advertisements or for any other commercial purposes of our own or those of third parties. They will only be passed on to achieve the above-mentioned purpose. In addition to the creator of the images, recipients are usually the image editor and those responsible for the media channel who necessarily come into contact with it during processing (marketing, PR, EDP department) as well as any recipients who are involved in further processing (e.g. in the case of print services), as contractors or order processors.

We assume that the making and use of the recordings in the context of the events does not unduly interfere with the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

We therefore draw attention to the production and use of photographic material already in the run-up to and at the event itself and take care that no obvious legitimate interests of persons depicted are violated. We instruct our photographers not to take any distorting, inappropriate photographs and check this before publication. If the rights and freedoms of the persons concerned are nevertheless violated for reasons that are particularly worthy of consideration, we will take appropriate measures to refrain from further processing.
