Data protection, south west german chamber orchestra pforzheim


We would like to begin with a quotation from Article 12, paragraph 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The responsible person in this case is us:

The controller shall take appropriate measures to transmit to the data subject all information […] and all communications relating […] to processing in a clear, transparent, comprehensible and easily accessible form, in a clear and simple language;

We hope that we have done that – as well as possible with this complex matter. If you have questions or are uncertain about some aspects of this statement, please contact us.


Data protection and data security are very important to us. With this privacy policy, we try to convey to you what personal data may arise in connection with our website, how we may use it and what options you have to influence such collection and use.

The collection, processing or storage of your data by us – or on our behalf by third parties – is done because we each have a “legitimate interest” within the meaning of the DSGVO in this collection, processing or storage or because they consent to the collection, processing or storage to have. We follow the principle that as few data as possible are collected, processed and stored in a way that is as comprehensible as possible for you.

Of course, this statement can only apply to our website. For websites or services of third parties, which we use on this website, the privacy statements of the respective operators apply. In this privacy policy, we list these third parties by name and also refer to the respective website or privacy policy.

We usually link here to the GDPR, as it is much more “legible” than the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), which translates into German law.

Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) online:

Personal data

The subject of this privacy policy is personal information. These are details of personal or factual circumstances of a particular or identifiable natural person. This can be, for example, name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, but in some cases also the time of the visit to our website, the favorite sorting of our blog posts or the shoe size, if we would sell shoes.

Your current IP address may also fall under the concept of personal data, but does not have to. If, for example, you access the Internet from the internal network of an international group, then the IP address will only be able to refer to this group.

Due to the shortage of IPv4 address space, many access providers (Telekom, Vodafone, etc.) no longer give users public IP addresses, but instead distribute individual IP addresses to multiple users via “Network Address Port Translation” (NAPT). Again, a personal reference of the IP address is regularly not given. Nevertheless, as far as technically possible, we do not pass on their current IP or only in an abbreviated, anonymous form.

Definition of personal data of the GDPR:

Storage on our systems

If you contact us, be it via our website, by e-mail, telephone or letter, this will leave us with data. Your e-mail address will be stored in our e-mail programs. Among other things, we may also enter your data in programs that fall under the keywords address management, merchandise management, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or CRP (Customer Relationship Management).

On the one hand, our systems can be local systems in our premises, but on the other hand also hosted web servers or cloud storage, with the technical operators of which a contract data processing contract was concluded in which they undertake to treat the data in accordance with the GDPR.

Use of the data for advertising purposes

We reserve the right to use the collected data for our own advertising purposes. Under certain circumstances, we will pass on the data to service providers commissioned by us, who, for example, organize the sending of letters or newsletters for us. You may object to the use of your data for these purposes at any time.

Obligation to provide information, correction and deletion of data

At any time you can request information about which data we have stored by you and if necessary also correct this data.

We will erase your information if you so desire and do not oppose other laws and regulations. These include, for example, the tax laws and, as a consequence, the principles of proper bookkeeping.

Incidentally, we would like to point out that the regulations set out in the GDPR are applicable to the deletion of data.

Data transfer for fulfillment of the contract, or during ongoing business operations

For certain activities, we use the services of third parties. This applies, for example, to the forwarding and dispatch of goods (in our case, for example, CDs and tickets), letters, packages and newsletters, for the processing of payments (credit card, direct debit, etc.), bookkeeping and tax advice or other comparable services that we need on an ongoing basis to maintain our business.

In such cases, information such as your postal or e-mail address will be passed on to these companies to enable them to provide the service. As a rule, these companies are obliged by law to handle data in a particularly careful and secure manner (post office, tax consultant, bank) or under a contract data processing contract they are obliged to treat the data in accordance with the GDPR.

Disclosure of data to other companies or individuals is not without cause and without your express prior consent.

Your data as part of the operation of our website

Server hosting and log files on our web server

Our website is at Domain Factory GmbH, Oskar-Messter-Str. 33, 85737 Ismaning hosted. We have concluded a contract processing order according to DSGVO with this provider. The configuration of the server is set up so that no log files are created.


When visiting our website, information in the form of pseudonymized cookies is stored on your computer within your browser software. It stores information about your use of the website. This concerns z. For example, the sorting of entries, a possibly existing memo function, preferred views of individual pages and similar information.

The use of cookies makes it easier, or allows you to use the functions of our website, as we will recognize your browser in another visit and, for example, facilitate the repeated input of data or give you your preferred view. To offer notices or shopping carts is virtually impossible without the use of cookies.

The cookies we use also help us to identify any operating issues when using our website. The aim of this assignment is to improve our website technically and creatively.

You have the possibility to control the use of cookies in your browser. You may also allow or restrict the future use of cookies by us or third parties as part of the privacy setting of this website.

Management of data related to Google products

All information about what data Google stores about you and how you can download, archive and control them can be found on this page:

Google fonts

This website uses Google Fonts, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). The integration of these web fonts is done by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This connection will transmit to this server the current IP address under which you are currently connected to the Internet, as well as, for example, information about the browser type used.

Google points out that this data is not used for user tracking, but only in evaluations for the use of the service.

Google CDN

In order to improve the loading speed of the website, we may also download the Javascript framework “jQuery” used on the website from a Google CDN (Content Delivery Network). Google CDN is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This usage causes this server to transmit the current IP address under which you are currently connected to the Internet, as well as, for example, information about the browser type used.

Google points out that this data is not used for user tracking, but only in evaluations for the use of the service.

Google Analytics, Google Double-Click, Google Tag Manager, Google Retargeting

If the “Do-Not-Track” feature is turned on in the browser, no Google Analytics scripts will be included without your explicit consent. You can always exclude the use of these features via our privacy policy. If you do this, no information will be passed on to our services via our website. If you do not do this, please pay attention to the following notes.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This is for the analysis of data from the use of our website, from AdWords and the double-click cookie.

Google Analytics uses cookies that are stored on your computer and that enable us to analyze the use of our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The “Global site tag” of the Google Tag Manager is used.

We point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “(, anonymizeIp ‘, true);” in order to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called “IP-Masking”). Thus, only a rough geographic assignment of the IP address at the level of federal states or counties is possible.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Under no circumstances will Google associate your Google Analytics IP address with any other Google Inc. data.

This site also uses Google Inc.’s remarketing feature. This feature is designed to show interest-based ads to visitors to the site through the Google Network. A cookie is saved in your browser, which allows Google to identify it as a visitor to our site on other websites and, among other things, to display advertising by us.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity for us and other advertisers, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage.

These data are always available to us and other advertisers in a pseudonymised form, for example in the form of “target groups”, such as the summary “page visitors in the last 30 days”.

If you do not want Google Analytics to evaluate your data from our visit to our website, AdWords and the Double-Click cookie, you can disable it through the Ads Preferences Manager.
