Responsible body within the meaning of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:

Village Pond Records
Your rights as a data subject

You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details of our data protection officer:

Information about your data stored by us and their processing,
Correction of incorrect personal data,
Deletion of your data stored by us,
Restriction of data processing if we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations,
Objection to the processing of your data by us and
Data portability, provided you have consented to the data processing or have concluded a contract with us.

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you with a complaint at any time. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your place of residence, your work or the alleged violation. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public area) with addresses can be found at:  https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned does not take place. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

You have given your express consent
the processing is necessary to process a contract with you,
the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation,

Processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Deletion or blocking of the data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) over HTTPS.
contact form

If you contact us regarding questions of any kind by e-mail or contact form, give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. A valid email address is required for this. This is used to assign the request and then answer it. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After your request has been dealt with, personal data will be automatically deleted.
Embedded YouTube Videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers is established. In doing so, YouTube will be informed which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you have to block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the provider's data protection declaration at:  https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Change of our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
Questions to the data protection officer

If you have any questions about data protection, please send us an email or contact the person responsible for data protection in our organization directly:

The data protection declaration was created with the data protection declaration generator of activeMind AG.

 

Notes on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the visitor's computer and that enable an analysis of the website visitor's use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is only used on this website with the "_anonymizeIp ()" extension. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and rules out any direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, Google's IP address will be shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the relevant browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the site operator with other services related to website and internet use (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately protected by the pseudonymization.

Google LLC. offers a guarantee on the basis of the standard contractual clauses to comply with an appropriate level of data protection. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has expired takes place automatically once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the page visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed from the following link:  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .

The page visitor can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents future collection of data when you visit this website.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google's data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/privacy ) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google ( https: // adssettings. google.com/authenticated ).

 

reCAPTCHA

To protect your inquiries via the Internet form, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google). The query is used to differentiate whether the input is made by a person or improperly by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The different data protection provisions of Google apply to this data. You can find more information on Google's data protection guidelines at:  https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de
