Elbhangfest e.V. takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. In the following, we explain how we handle your data and where it is collected.
In accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act, we are obliged to use your personal data only for the intended purpose. In order to comply with these regulations, we have taken technical and organisational measures.

We take organisational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and to protect the data we process against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons.
The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.
Handling of personal data
First and foremost, your visit to our website serves to provide you with information about the Elbhangfest e.V. In addition, you may provide us with personal data (for example, by e-mail). Your personal data will only be collected by us if you provide us with it, for example, by sending us an enquiry by e-mail. Your data will only be used internally and for a specific purpose – i.e. for processing the enquiry, registration or order. We only store your data until the purpose has been fulfilled. After that, the data will be deleted.
We only use your data internally and do not pass it on to third parties. Please note, however, that data transmission via unencrypted mail traffic is not one hundred percent secure and can always have security gaps. We can therefore not guarantee one hundred percent protection of your data from access by third parties.

Collection of access data and log files
We collect data on every access to our website on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, we collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum period of 28 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until the respective incident is finally clarified.
Cookies are pieces of information that are transmitted from our web server or third-party web servers to the users’ web browsers and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies may be small files or other types of information storage.
We use “session cookies”, which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our online presence (e.g. in order to be able to store your login status or the shopping basket function and thus enable the use of our online offer at all). A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. These cookies cannot store any other data. Session cookies are deleted when you have finished using our online offer and log out or close the browser, for example.
If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
Integration of third-party services and content
Within our online offer, we use content or service providers on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) to integrate content or services offered by third-party providers, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, options for objection (so-called opt-out):
- Videos from the “YouTube” platform of the third-party provider Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
- Opt-Out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.
With the following information we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of the Newsletter are specifically described in the course of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Apart from that, our newsletters contain information about our services and us.
Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter is carried out in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.
Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to enter a name for the purpose of a personal address in the newsletter.
The newsletter is sent and its success measured on the basis of the recipients’ consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lt. f. DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG. DSGVO in conjunction with. § 7 para. 3 UWG.
The logging of the registration process takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly as well as secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as the expectations of the users and furthermore allows us to prove consent.
Cancellation/revocation – You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. We may store unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to be able to prove consent previously given. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.
The dispatch service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.
Newsletter: performance measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened, or if we use a dispatch service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected.
This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor, if used, that of the dispatch service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the performance measurement is not possible; in this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled.
Rights of users
Users have the right, upon request and free of charge, to receive information about the personal data that we have stored about them.
In addition, users have the right to correct incorrect data, restrict processing and delete their personal data, if applicable, to assert their rights to data portability and, in the event of the assumption of unlawful data processing, to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Likewise, users can revoke consent, in principle with effect for the future.
Deletion of data
The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and the deletion is not contrary to any statutory retention obligations. If the user data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. I.e. the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to user data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law.
According to legal requirements, data is stored for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB (commercial books, inventories, opening balances, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting vouchers, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, management reports, accounting vouchers, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).
Right of objection
Users may object to the future processing of their personal data in accordance with the legal requirements at any time. The objection can be made in particular against the processing for purposes of direct advertising.
