The use of YouTube
This website includes YouTube references. YouTube is an internet video portal, which allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and allows other users to view, rate and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, including entire films and TV programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves.
The site is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time you visit one of
the individual pages of this website on which a YouTube component (YouTube
video) has been integrated, your Internet browser will automatically be
prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of
the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about
YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/.
As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will be able to detect the specific subpage of our website visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.
YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
Order Procedure through the online shop
All data entered by the customer when placing an order will be stored. This includes:
- Last name, First name
- Telephone number (optional)
- Email address
All data necessary for the processing the order or delivery will be passed on to third party service providers. Once this data is no longer required or legally allowed, it will be deleted.
Payment by PayPal in the online shop
This website includes PayPal references. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal also offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit card if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no account number. PayPal allows you to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and offers buyer protection services.
PayPal is operated in Europe by PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxemburg. If a customer selects PayPal as the payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, their data will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the subject consents to the transmission of personal data required for payment processing.
The following personal data is usually transmitted to PayPal: First name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. In order to process the purchase, it is also necessary to collect personal data related to the order.
The purpose of the transmission of data is to process payments and prevent fraud. The party responsible for processing the payment will transfer personal data to PayPal, particularly if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the person responsible for processing may be transmitted by PayPal to credit reporting agencies. The purpose of this is to verify creditworthiness.
PayPal may pass on personal data affiliated companies, service providers or subcontractors if it is necessary in order to fulfil contractual obligations or if the data is required to process the order. The subject can withdraw their consent for PayPal to handle their personal data at any time. This will not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for processing the payment.
PayPal’s current data protection regulations can be found at: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full
Legal basis of processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
Your Rights (Rights of the data subject)

Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH will also inform other data controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has asked for the erasure of all links to his personal data and this personal information or copies or replications need to be deleted unless required for the processing. The employee of Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH will arrange the necessary steps in individual cases.
e) Right to restrict processing

- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a certain period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful; the data subject refuses to erase the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of personal data.
- The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject requires them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- The data subject objects to the processing as per Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.
- If one of the above-mentioned conditions exists and the data subject requests the restriction of personal data stored at Verlags-und Medienhaus WSB GmbH, he may contact an employee of the data controller any time. The employee of Verlags-und Medienhaus WSB GmbH will arrange the restriction of processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, to obtain his personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable format. The data subject also has the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data was originally provided, given that the processing is based on the consent as per Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (1) (b) 2 (a) of the GDPR or on a contract as per Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is an automated process, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority, which has been assigned to the data controller.
Furthermore, the data subject has the right to data portability as per Article 20 (1) of the GDPR. The data subject also has the right to obtain the personal data that are transmitted directly from one controller to another, as long as this is technically feasible and if this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.
To assert the right of data portability, the data subject may contact an employee of Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH any time.
g) Right to objection
Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, to object to the processing of personal data as per Article 6 (1) (e) or f GDPR. This also applies to profiling
Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH will no longer process the personal data of a data subject in the event of an objection, unless Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH can prove that there are compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defense of legal claims.
If Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH publishing processes personal data in order to operate direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising any time. This also applies to the profiling, as long as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing of his personal data by Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH publishing for direct marketing purposes, Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes as per Art. 89 para.1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a public interest task.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject can directly contact an employee of Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH. The data subject is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58 / EC, to exercise his right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect, or in a similar manner, significantly affects him; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is permitted by Union law or national law to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject; or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or the fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, Verlags- und Medienhaus WSB GmbH takes appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to express his / her own position and to object to the decision.
