The protection of personal data is very important to us. At this point we inform you which personal data we collect for which purpose on our website (and, if applicable, the associated websites – e.g. our social media profiles or integrated services/offers of third parties – such as Google – etc.).
A) The Responsible Person within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (German: Datenschutzgrundverordnung, hereinafter “DSGVO”) and other provisions of data protection law is:
DFFB Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie GmbH
Potsdamer Str. 2
B) Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
1.) Personal data is such information which can be used to find out personal or factual circumstances (such as name, address, telephone number, e‑mail address). We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as this is permissible or ordered according to the DSGVO, the German Data Protection Law (German: Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) or other European or German legal provisions or when the concerned party has given consent hereto. The general use of our website is possible without providing your personal data – as far personal data will be collected, this is on a voluntary basis only.
2.) Your visit to our website is automatically logged. The IP address currently used by your PC, date and time, the browser type and operating system of your PC and the pages you are viewing are recorded. A reference to individuals is not possible. No other evaluation of the data, with the exception for statistical purposes in anonymous form, will occur.
The system must temporarily store the IP address in order to transmit the website to the visitor’s computer. For this purpose, it is also necessary to keep the IP address stored for the duration of the session. The resulting storage of data in log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website and to adapt it to the requirements of our visitors. We have listed under B) 5. how we use and process the data in detail (see below).
3.) Provided that a visitor of our website registers for personalized services (e.g. ordering a newsletter, requests for information etc.), we ask for certain contact details or other personal data. The user is free to decide whether or not to provide this data.
4.) Legal basis for the processing of personal data, provided that prior consent of the concerned person has been obtained, results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO; insofar as the processing is based on the fulfilment of a legal obligation, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.
In special cases in which the vital interests of the concerned party (or another natural person) require the processing of personal data, the legal basis for this results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO. If processing is necessary for the protection of the legal interests of our company or third parties and the interests of the concerned party predominate, taking into account his fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
5.) In the context of using this website, your personal data will be processed by us primarily for the following purposes:
to provide information, respond to contact requests etc. via the contact form and/or a newsletter
for the statistical evaluation of cumulated and anonymized data
to prevent misuse/for security measures
C) Deletion of Data and Storage Period
The personal data collected by us will be deleted as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply (deviating from this only if continuous storage is stipulated in a statutory provision, possibly for data processing). Deletion or blocking of data shall take place at the latest when the legally prescribed storage period expires, provided that there is no necessity for further storage of the data in order to conclude a contract or to fulfil a contractual relationship.
D) Rights of the Concerned Persons
As the concerned person through the data processing, you are particularly entitled to the rights stated below, which arise in each case from the DSGVO.

Furthermore, according to Art. 17 DSGVO, you are entitled to request the erasure of your personal data stored by us. This applies, unless there are other legal grounds on our part that prevent such action (this may for example be the right to freedom of expression, the right to inform third parties when fulfilling legal obligations; reasons of the public interest or the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims on our behalf or on the part of third parties).
D3) Right to Restrict Processing and Right to Object
According to Art. 18 DSGVO, you are entitled to demand the restriction of processing of your DSGVO, you are entitled to object if there are reasons arising from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct advertising.

E) Hyperlinks to other websites
Our website contains hyperlinks to websites of third parties. As soon as you activate them, you are within the sphere of influence of this (other) website and subject to their data collection and data protection regulations.
By using our website, you agree to the collection, processing and usage of your data – also by the indicated third-party providers – in the respectively described manner and for the named purpose.
You may manage cookies from some US companies via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, or via the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/
Cookies are used in particular for the following reasons:
a) to know which pages or areas have been visited by the visitors of the website
b) to secure the personal settings of the visitors of our website and to allow them simplified access in the future.
In the context of a), we compile aggregated statistics about the website visitors.
The legal basis in this regard is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
G) Information about other integrated or (partly via button) linked services, such as various Google services and various social plug-ins
Third-party content such as videos from Vimeo, Facebook, maps from Google Maps or graphics from other websites are integrated into this website.
This requires that the providers of the content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of visitors, since without such IP address the content cannot be sent to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary to visualize the content.
We have no influence on the storage of your IP address and other information (e.g. for statistical purposes) by third-party providers. Please refer to the relevant data protection regulations of the respective third-party providers as specified, for more information.
Third-party provider may be replaced over time, as well as third party provider may be removed or added. Only the currently published version of the data protection statement applies.
G1) Google services
We have integrated the following Google services to our website:
G1a) Google Analytics
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking the following link: “Disable Google Analytics” Disable Google Analytics. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected during future visits to our website as long as the cookie remains on your computer. Further information on Google’s use of data as well as possible settings and objections can be found on the Google website: “Google’s use of data when visiting our partners’ websites or apps” (www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners), “Google’s use of data for advertising purposes” (www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads), “Manage information Google uses to show you advertising” (www.google.de/settings/ads) and “Determine which advertising Google shows you” (www.google.com/ads/preferences)”.
G1b) Google Maps
Our website includes the data service Google Maps (provider: Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for the presentation of an interactive map and, if necessary, for the creation of a route description. This is a Google map service, through the use of which information about the usage of our website, including your IP address and, if you use the route planner function, the starting address, are transmitted to the Google Map service in the USA. When you access a page that contains the Google Maps service, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google’s servers. Google transfers the map content directly to your browser, which in turn integrates it into the website. We have no influence on the extent of the data collected by Google in this way. If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data from you via our website, you must deactivate the JAVA script in your browser settings – however, the use of a map display is then no longer possible.
For detailed information on the purpose and scope of data collection associated with Google Maps, the further processing and use of this data by Google, which rights you are entitled to in this respect and which setting options you have to protect your privacy, please refer to Google’s data protection guidelines at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policy/privacy/.

First, if you have given us your explicit consent, we will send you an e‑mail newsletter with general information (about us, our activities) and/or advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”). For this purpose, we use the double-opt-in procedure, according to which you are added to the newsletter distribution list only after activation of a link sent to you for verification by e‑mail.

For this purpose, the newsletter may contain a so-called “web-beacon”, a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened.
You may at any time, free of charge, revoke your consent given in connection with the newsletter to the storage of the data, storage of the e‑mail address and its use for sending the newsletter.
