Privacy notice

We are delighted with your interest in our company. Data protection is extremely important to the management of Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH. In principle it is possible to use the web pages of Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH without providing any personal data. However, insofar as a data subject would like to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, it might be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and if there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain permission from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, will always take place in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH. Our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process through this Data protection declaration. In addition, this Data protection declaration explains the rights of data subjects.

Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH has implemented a large number of technical and organisational measures for people responsible for processing in order to ensure that protection is as complete as possible with regard to the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security flaws, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason every data subject is free to also provide personal data to us by an alternative method, for example by telephone.

•    in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR to request the limitation of the processing of your personal data, insofar as you are disputing the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse their deletion and we no longer require the data, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR you have submitted a withdrawal of consent to processing and it is not yet certain whether our justified reasons exceed your interests;
•    in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR to receive your personal data, which you have provided to us, in a structured, current and machine-readable format or request transmission to a different officer, insofar as processing is based on your consent or a contract and processing takes place using an automated procedure;

In general this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You will be able to identify whether an individual page of our website is transmitted with encryption by the closed display of the key or lock symbol or the use of https before the address of our (sub-)website. As for the rest, we use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulations, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by a third party. Our security measures are continually being improved in line with technological development.

A suitable guarantee exists for example if the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the EU Commission have been concluded or if a certification is available through a “Privacy Shield”.

The legal basis is Art. 45 and 46 GDPR.
