The protection of your personal data is very important to me, Marvin Dillmann (hereinafter “I”, “me”, “my”).

Furthermore, I would like to inform you about the rights you enjoy in this regard.

II. General Information about Data Processing

1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data

As a matter of principle, I only collect and use personal data of users of my website, if this is necessary to provide a functional website, my contents and services.

 

2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as I obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Should I process personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which my company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. In case the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of my company or those of a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

 

3. Data Erasure and Storage Time

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data, for instance, for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

 

III. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files

Every time you visit my website, my system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. In this process, the following data are collected:

(1) Information about the browser type and the version used
(2) The operating system of the user
(3) The IP address of the user
(4) Date and time of access
(5) Websites from which the user’s system is brought to my website
(6) Websites accessed by the user’s system via my website.

The data is also stored in the log files of my system. Such data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serve me to optimise the website and to ensure the security of my information technology systems. My legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR lies in these purposes. In doing so, I do not evaluate the data for marketing purposes.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. If I collect the data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. As a consequence, the user has no right of objection in this regard.

 

IV. Use of Cookies

In order to make your visit to my website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, I use so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your terminal. Some of the cookies I use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called transient cookies). Other cookies remain on the terminal and enable me or my partner companies to recognize your browser when you revisit my website (persistent cookies).

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These include, in particular the so-called session cookies. Session cookies store a session ID by means of which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to my website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which differs depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser. The legal basis for the processing of personal data by means of cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. My legitimate interest lies in the provision of my website and the improvement of the quality of my website and its contents.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted by the user’s computer to my site. Therefore, you, as a user, have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies, which have already been stored, can be deleted at any time. This can also be done in an automated way. In case cookies are deactivated for my website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website to their full extent.

 

V. Contact Form

When you contact me by e-mail or using the contact form provided on my website I will save your name and e-mail address so that I can answer your enquiry. As an option, you can also enter your telephone and fax number in addition to your e-mail address and your name, and whether you would like me to call you back, so that I can also address you personally and answer your enquiry in a more targeted manner. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected; this is regularly the case after the final answer to your enquiry. Otherwise, I limit the processing in the case of legal storage obligations.

The legal basis for the processing of the data which you submit to me upon establishment of contact is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of the data in case of consent is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You have the possibility to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you contact me by e-mail or via the contact form, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In this case, any and all personal data stored in the course of the establishment of contact by means of the contact form or the e-mail will be deleted. You can withdraw your consent and object to the storage of your personal data by sending an e-mail to music@ritualbass.com or to the contact details stated in the “contact” section.

 

VI. Newsletter

By giving your consent, you can subscribe to my newsletter in which I inform you about my latest offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent. For the registration to my newsletter I use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that, after your registration for the newsletter, I will send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which I will ask you to confirm your desire to receive the newsletter. Should you fail to confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, I store the IP addresses you used and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

The only mandatory information for the submission of the newsletter is your e-mail address. After having received your confirmation, I will save your e–mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence (a) GDPR. The collection of the user’s e-mail address serves to send the newsletter. The e-mail address will be stored for as long as you subscribe to the newsletter.

You can withdraw your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can cancel your subscription simply by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail, by sending an e-mail to music@ritualbass.com, or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the section “contact”.

 

VII. Google Analytics

My website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC/Alphabet Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files, which are stored on your computer and which allow the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with any other Google data. You can block the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, I would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and which relate to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here.

We use Google Analytics with the extension anonymizeIp. In this way, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that personal identification can be excluded. We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of my website and to improve it on a regular basis. By means of the statistics obtained, I are able to improve my offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the US, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence (f) GDPR.

My legitimate interest lies in the increase of the customer-friendly design of my website.
