are the operators (hereinafter referred to as "We" or the "Operators") of the website artyst-international.com (hereinafter referred to as the "Website") and the services offered on it and are therefore responsible for the collection, processing and use of personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (new FDPA) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
The principle of data minimisation is of great importance to us even at the data collection stage. We shall only collect and process personal data if you have given us your consent or if the law expressly permits or mandates us to do so. We will explain below which data we collect, how we use it and which rights you have with regard to the use of your data.
2 SECURITYThe data entered on our website shall be encrypted (according to the state of the art) and transmitted to our servers via the internet.
We protect our website and other systems through technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
3 COLLECTION, STORAGE AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA

The term personal data defines individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (data subject). This includes, for example, your real name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.
3.2 Collection, processing and use of personal data
We shall adhere strictly to the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation, the German Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act when collecting, processing and using personal data.
We will collect, store and process your data for the entire complaint handling process, the implementation and improvement of our services, technical administration, improvement of our products and services as well as our own marketing purposes.
When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we will collect the following data that are technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR):
– IP address;
– Date and time of the request;
– Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT;)
– Content of the request (specific page);
– Access Status/HTTP Status Code;
– The amount of data transferred in each case;
– Website from which the request comes;
– Operating system and its interface;
– Language and browser software version.For the processing of complaints, we will collect a person’s full name, address, country, telephone number and e-mail address, IP address and gender.
If you contact us by e-mail or through the contact form, we will store your e-mail address and other information according to the form. This is done for the purpose of responding to you or, if necessary, contacting you at a later point in time about the subject of the inquiry.
When the processing of your request has been completed, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the periods provided for under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data.
Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, shall not collect any and shall not pass on any to third parties.

Personal data provided to us via our website will only be stored until the purpose for which they were entrusted to us has been fulfilled. If retention periods under commercial and tax law have to be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 10 years or longer.
3.5 Disclosure of data/ transmission to third parties
In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. We have carefully selected and commissioned these providers, who are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.
Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or invoicing or if you have given your prior consent. As part of complaints handling, for example, the service providers we use here (such as logisticians) will receive the necessary data for order processing. The data passed on in this way may only be used by our service providers for the performance of their tasks. Any other use of the information is not permitted and shall not be made by any of the service providers commissioned by us.
We will not sell or otherwise pass on your data to third parties without your consent. Anything to the contrary shall only apply if there is a legal obligation to do so (e.g. transmitting information to certain authorities within the scope of their statutory duties) or if this is necessary for the enforcement of our rights, especially for the enforcement of claims arising from the contractual relationship with you.
3.6 Storage of log files
Every time you visit our website, the access will be recorded (access log). The recording is automated and will be anonymised. This means that the collected personal data (e.g. IP address) will be changed such that the individual information about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person or this can only be done with a disproportionately high expenditure of time, cost and manpower.
The stored log files serve to further improve our website and the services offered as well as to better control the capacities of the servers.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for the registration to our newsletter. This means that after your registration we will send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which we will ask you to confirm that you would like the newsletter to be sent. If you do not confirm your registration within [24 hours], your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we will store your IP addresses and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to resolve any misuse of your personal data.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data and the e-mail address as well as their use for the newsletter’s despatch at any time.

5.2 Use of the Facebook pixel (Facebook Custom Audiences)
On our website we use the so-called "Facebook pixel" of Facebook Inc. ( Facebook). This allows users of our website to be provided with interest-related advertisements ("Facebook Ads") when they visit the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the procedure. Through the Face-book pixel, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of the Facebook pixel, Facebook receives the information that you have clicked on an advertisement from us or called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address and other identification features.
With the use of the Facebook pixel, we pursue the purpose of displaying Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our Internet offer. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not appear annoying. In addition, the Facebook pixel allows us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad. The legal basis for the use of the Facebook pixel is article 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO.
You may object to the use of the Facebook Pixel at any time by clicking deactivate Facebook Pixel.
