Privacy Protection Provisions

1. Personal data

1.1 Personal data consists of information such as name, address, or email address. Our website can be visited without having personal data collected, processed or used. Personal data is only collected and stored if it is actively communicated to us. When this is necessary, we give notice thereof and ask for express consent.

1.2 The collection and processing of personal data only takes place in order to process inquiries, to implement desired services, as well as to implement the contract, including the transmission of payment relevant data to our payment provider, and protect our own legitimate business interests. Personal data is not sold, rented out or otherwise marketed to third parties by us.

1.3 If receipt of our newsletter is expressly agreed to, then the corresponding personal data is used for our own advertising purposes by email, until YouTunez receives a corresponding objection thereto. Unsubscribing to the newsletter can take place at any time in the customer account or by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

1.4 We use certified SSL encryption for transmission and storage of personal data. Despite all security precautions we can not undertake any guarantee or assume any liability for an individual instance of the disclosure of personal data, e.g. due to a technical transmission error or unauthorized access by a third party. Liability based on mandatory legal provisions remains unaffected thereby.

1.5 In the case of questions concerning the collection, processing and use of personal data, should you wish to revoke consent that has already been granted, or seek information concerning the personal data stored by us and/or wish to have it deleted, please send your inquiries to:

2. Usage data

2.2 Usage data is evaluated exclusively on an anonymous basis and does not allow any inferences as to your person. An evaluation of the usage data in order to create a personal usage profile only takes place when you give express advance consent to such a use.

3. Links to third-party websites

We make references on our website to various places on third-party websites that for their part offer information and services. We assume no liability for such third-party content and the corresponding privacy protection provisions of third parties.

4. Use of cookies

4.1 In order to make certain functions possible, we use small text data that are stored on your device, if you permit this (hereafter "cookies"). Most cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browser session ("browser cookies"). Other cookies remain on your device and make it possible for us to recognize you again on your next visit to our website ("permanent cookies").

4.2 Through activation of the "remember me" function your login data is stored safely on your device with the help of permanent cookies. Then you don't have to login again to our website with every visit. You can deactivate this function at any time by logging out of your customer account.

4.3 You can set your browser so that you are informed of the storage of cookies, you can decide whether to accept cookies in each individual case or you can choose not to accept cookies at all. For details about the deactivation of cookies, please refer to your browsers' guide. Should you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to fully use all functions of our website.

5. Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your device and which allow the analysis of your usage of our website. This usage data of our website generated is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In addition, your IP address will be shortened on our website. This ensures the masking of your IP address so that all data will be collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases your full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent Google from collecting your usage data of our website (including IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. As alternative to the browser add-on, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting you usage data by clicking on this link. This stores and opt-out cookie on your device. If you clear the cookies in your browser, the opt-out cookie must be set again.

6. Use of Facebook plug-ins

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network Facebook which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identified by a Facebook logo. The list and the look of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here. If you call up one of our website pages which has a plugin of this kind, your browser sets up a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into our website. Through integration of the plugin, Facebook obtains the information that you have called up the relevant page on our website (incl. your IP address), even if you don’t have a Facebook account, and store the information on a server in the USA. If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugin, for example, by using the "Like" button or posting a comment, the information will be given directly to Facebook and stored there. The information will also be published to your Facebook profile and shown to your friends on Facebook. For information about the purpose and extent of usage and the further processing of data by Facebook, as well your rights in this regard and options to protect your personal privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information. If you have a Facebook account and don’t want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and to link this with your data stored on Facebook, you need to log off from Facebook before going to our website. You can also completely block Facebook plugins by using add-ons for your browser, for example Facebook Blocker.

7. Modification of privacy protection provisions

The current privacy protection provisions can be called up on the website at any time. YouTunez is entitled to change the privacy protection provisions at any time while continuing to comply with the statutory privacy protection laws. For the use of our website it is always the current privacy protection provisions that apply at the time of the visit.
