General information about data processing

If personal data is collected from interested parties, customers and users of our platform, this serves the purpose of providing the online offers, their content and functions, the provision of contractual services, communication with users, for marketing, advertising and market research and for technical security measures. Depending on the type and scope of your use of music-on-the-line, inventory, contact, contract, payment and usage data as well as metadata regarding the access to our website are processed.

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we will inform you of the legal basis for our data processing. Unless the legal basis is explicitly mentioned in this data protection declaration, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for processing for the performance of our services and implementation of contractual measures as well as answering inquiries is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfill our legal obligations is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If we disclose data to other people and companies during our processing, transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of legal permission if you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests. If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "order processing contract", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR. If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this takes place within the scope of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only take place if it is carried out to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, based on 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 have the data processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR are met. This means that processing takes place, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").

The measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling the physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, transfer, securing availability and their separation. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account when developing or selecting hardware, software and processes, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly default settings (Art. 25 GDPR). The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.
