1.2 PRINCIPLES OF PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

Your data is protected within the scope of statutory provisions. Below you will find information on the collection of personal data on these websites, available on the Internet at www.TheMuseumof.Me (hereinafter also referred to as the website).

 

1.2.1 PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF PROCESSING

Protection of your personal data on our website is important to us. As a rule we only process the personal data of our users to the extent required in order to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services.

 

1.2.2 LEGAL BASIS

Processing of the personal data of our users is carried out with your consent or on the basis of a legal permit.

Article 6 Clause 1 lit. a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] provides the legal basis of such processing insofar as we obtain consent for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the legal basis is provided by Article 6 Clause 1 lit. b) GDPR. This also applies to processing operations required in order to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Article 6 Clause 1 lit. c) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] provides the legal basis insofar as the processing of personal data is required in order for us to comply with a legal obligation. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, then Article 6 Clause 1 lit. d) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest on the part of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh this interest, then Article 6 Clause 1 lit. f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] shall provide the legal basis for such processing.
 

1.2.3 DATA DELETION AND STORAGE PERIOD

Regardless of possible revocation of your consent, we process and store your personal data as long as and to the extent required in order to satisfy the respective purposes. If your data are no longer required for the specified purposes, then they will be deleted on a regular basis. This is done while taking existing statutory retention periods and, among others, obligations in accordance with Section 89b of the German Commercial Code (HGB into consideration).
 

1.2.4 RECIPIENTS OR CATEGORIES OF RECIPIENTS

If this is required in order to provide the website or for the processing activities described in Clause 2, then we will transfer your data to the following categories of recipients: customer advisors; postal service providers; call centers; IT providers.

For the purposes of postal advertising and market research, we may also transmit your address information to Group companies – unless you have objected. No transfer to a third country shall take place.

If we process data in a third country (ie outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or the Swiss Confederation) or in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure, or transfer of data to other persons or companies, this will only happen if it is to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or leave the data in a third country only in the presence of legal requirements. This means that the processing is e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognized level of data protection (eg for the USA through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognized specific contractual obligations.
 

1.3 RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECTS

If we collect or process personal data on this website, then you are the data subject within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]. In this case you have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR), the right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR) and erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) of your data, the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), a right of objection to processing (Art. 21 DS-GVO) and the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR].

In the case of automated decision-making (including profiling), you also have the right to express your position on automated decision-making and to have this decision manually reviewed by us for accuracy.

For enforcing your rights, please always contact the above mentioned responsible, as your rights have to be implemented there. However, you can also contact the data protection officer, especially if your request requires more confidentiality.
 

 

 

1.4 REVOCATION OF DECLARATIONS OF CONSENT

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, then you may revoke such consent at any time – also via e-mail to: hello@tmom.cc. A revocation shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out up to that point.

You may object to the future processing of your data in accordance with legal requirements at any time. The objection may in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. It is loaded from the Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website, the cookie and the information stored therein will either be transmitted to the website that generated it (first party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (third party cookie). Thus the website recognizes that it has already been visited with this browser. Other web technologies are used for similar purposes, so that we also refer to these technologies as "cookies" in this context.

Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognize your computer upon your next visit (so-called permanent cookies).
