2. General Purposes of Processing

We use personal data for the purpose of operating the website, booking tickets and sending our newsletter.

3. The Data We Use, and Why We Use It

3.1 Hosting

The hosting services that we use serve the provision of the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating the Website.

We or our hosting provider process contact details, content data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our website pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 28 GDPR.

3.2 Access Data

We collect, store and use data concerning each on the access to our website (so-called server logfiles). Access data includes the following:

  • - name and URL of the accessed file
  • - date and time of access
  • - transmitted data volume
  • - response on successful access (HTTP response code)
  • - type of browser and version of browser
  • - operating system
  • - referrer URL (i.e., the site previously visited)
  • - websites that were accessed from the user's system via our website
  • - the user's internet service provider
  • - IP address and the requesting provider.

We use this log data without assigning it to persons or creating any other profile. We evaluate it statistically for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising our website, and also for the purpose of anonymously recording the number of visitors to our website (traffic) as well as the extent and nature in which our website and services are used.  This information allows us to do the following: (1) provide personalised and location-based content, (2) analyse data traffic, (3) identify and cure errors, and (4) improve our services.

This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

We reserve the right to retroactively review log data where concrete indications give rise to a justified suspicion of unlawful use. We also store IP addresses where we have a concrete suspicion that a criminal offence has been committed in the context of our website being used.

3.3 Cookies

We use so-called session cookies to optimise our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective server when an internet site is visited and that is temporarily stored on your hard drive. The file as such contains a so-called session ID with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the joint session. Thus, your computer can be recognised when you revisit our website. These cookies are deleted after you have closed your browser. For example, they serve to prevent that the cookie banner is redisplayed.

To a small extent we use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device) that remain on your terminal device to enable us to recognise you at your next visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and erase themselves after the prescribed time. They expire after a period ranging from one month to ten years. This enables us to present our offer in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner, and, for example, to display information on our site that corresponds with your interests.

Our legitimate interest in using cookies pursuant to Article 6(1)(f)GDPR lies in making our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The cookies store data and information such as the following:

  • - information on how often our website has been viewed as well as how often individual functions of our internet presence have been used.

An identification number is assigned to the cookie when it is activated, and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, your IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you will not be placed in the cookie. The cookie technology only provides pseudonymised information.

You can adjust the settings of your browser so that you are informed of the placement of cookies in advance and can decide in each individual case whether you refuse consent to cookies in specific cases or in general, or that cookies are prevented completely. This may limit the website's functionality.

3.4 Data to Meet Our Contractual Obligations

A contractual relationship in respect of our website only arises through a booking process. This occurs through the booking system of the company CTS Eventim AG & Co. KGAa, Contrescape 75a, 28195 Bremen (info@eventim.de).

We process the personal data that is necessary to meet our contractual obligations, which includes name, address, e-mail address, products ordered, invoice and payment data. Collecting this data is necessary for contract conclusion.

The data is erased upon expiration of the warranty periods and the statutory retention periods. Data that is connected to a user account (see below) will definitely remain for the period when this account is active.

The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, since this data is needed so we can meet the contractual obligations we owe you.

3.5 User Account

You can create a user account for the booking procedure. If you wish to do so, we need the personal data requested at login. Only your email or your account name with your personal password will be needed for subsequent logins.

For new registration, we collect master data (e.g., name, address), communication data (e.g., e-mail address), payment data (bank details) and access data (user name and password).

To ensure that you can register properly and to prevent unauthorised registrations by third parties, you receive an activation link per e-mail after registering so that you can activate your account. We do not permanently store the data you have transmitted in our system until you have registered.

You can instruct us to delete any user account you have created without incurring any other costs than those for transmission as set out in our basic tariffs. Written notification to the contact data under Clause 1 (e.g., e-mail) is sufficient for this purpose. We will then delete your stored personal data unless we must store it to process orders or are required to do so due to statutory retention duties.

The legal basis for processing this data is your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.

3.6 Newsletter

To register for the newsletter, the data requested in the registration process is required. The registration for the newsletter is logged. After registration, a message is sent to the email address you provided, asking you to confirm your registration ("Double Opt-in"). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your email address.

You can revoke your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time, thus cancelling the newsletter.

We store the registration data as long as they are needed for dispatching the newsletter. We store the registration protocol and the shipping address for as long as there was an interest in the proof of the originally given consent. Generally, this corresponds with the limitation periods for civil law claims (i.e., a maximum of three years).

The legal basis for processing this data is your consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR in conjunction with § 7(2) no. 3 German Act Against Unfair Competition (UWG). The legal basis for the logging of the registration is our legitimate interest in proof that the shipment was made with your consent.

You can revoke the registration at any time without incurring any other costs than those for transmission as set out in our basic tariffs. Written notification to the contact data under Clause 1 (e.g., e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. An unsubscribe link is available in every newsletter.

3.7 Contacting Us

If you contact us (e.g., per email), we process your data to process your query and for any follow-up questions.

If data is processed to carry out pre-contractual measures that occur upon your query, or, if you are already our customer, to perform the contract, the legal basis for processing this data is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.

We only process additional personal data if you consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). For example, a legitimate interest could be responding to your email.

In detail:

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.  We will not continue to process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data will be encrypted for transmission. This applies to all forms offered.  We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but please note that the online transmission of data (e.g., when communicating per email) can be subject to security risks. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

To protect your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Article 32 GDPR, which we continually update to the state of the art of technology.

Furthermore, we do not warrant that our offer will be available at certain times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers we use are regularly and diligently backed up.

10. Transfer of Data to Third Parties, No Data Transfer to Non-EU States

As a general rule, we only use your personal data within our company.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the fulfilment of contracts (e.g., logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("Contract Processing"), we contractually oblige contract processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to ensure that the data subject's rights are warranted.

A data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU beyond the cases mentioned in this declaration in Clauses 5 and 6 does not take place and is not planned.
