I. Introduction and definitions


1. GENERAL
By operating my website with the URL www.federicoalbanese.com (hereinafter referred to as "website"), I process personal data. These are treated confidentially by me and processed in accordance with the applicable laws - in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With this Privacy Policy, I would like to inform you about what personal data I collect from you, for what purposes and on what legal basis I use it and, if applicable, to whom I disclose it. Furthermore, I will explain to you which rights you are entitled to in order to protect and enforce your data protection.

2. Definitions
This Privacy Policy contains technical terms that are in the DSGVO and the BDSG. For your better understanding, I would like to explain these terms in simple terms in advance:

2.1 Personal data
"Personal data" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). Information of an identified person can be, for example, the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data is also data where the identity is not immediately obvious, but can be determined by combining one's own information or that of others and thus finding out who it is. A person can be identified, for example, by providing your address or bank details, your date of birth or user name, your IP addresses and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows a conclusion to be drawn about a person.

2.2 Processing
A "processing" is understood by Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR as any operation involving to personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.

4. DATA PROTECTION OFFICER
I am not obliged to appoint a data protection officer for my business and artistic activities - such as this website. For questions and concerns about data protection, you can contact me using the aforementioned contact details.

III. Scope of processing


5. SCOPE OF PROCESSING: WEBSITE
Regarding the website, I process the personal data of you listed in detail below in section IV. I only process data from you that you actively provide on the website (e.g. by filling out forms) or that you automatically provide when when visiting my website.
Your data will be processed exclusively by me and will not be sold, lent or passed on to third parties. If I use the help of external service providers to process your personal data, this is done within the framework of so-called order processing, in which I, as the client, am authorised to issue instructions to my contractors. For the operation of my website, I use external service providers for hosting, as well as for maintenance, care and further development. I host my website with the external provider One.com (One.com Group AB, Carlsgatan 3, 211 20 Malmö, Sweden) in the data centre location in Denmark. If further external service providers are used for individual processing operations listed in section IV, they will be named there.
As a matter of principle, I do not transfer data to third countries and I do not plan to do so. I will provide information about exceptions to this principle in the processing operations described below. Any data transfer to third countries will then take place on the basis of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.

IV. The processing operations in detail


6. CONTACT FORM AND CONTACT BY E-MAIL
6.1 Description of processing
For contacting me, I have provided a contact form on my website. In this form, you are asked to enter your e-mail address, your name and a message to me. When you click the "Send" button, the data will be transferred to me using SSL encryption (see section 14). The contact form can only be transferred if you confirm that you have taken note of these data protection provisions by clicking on the corresponding checkbox. You can also contact me via the e-mail addresses provided on the website. In this case, the personal data transferred with the e-mail will be processed by me.

6.2 Purpose
By providing a contact form on my website, I would like to offer you a convenient way to contact me. The data transferred with and in the contact form or your e-mail will be used exclusively for the purpose of processing and responding to your request.

6.3 Legal basis
The processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). My legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 6.2. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract, the data processing is carried out for the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).

If legal retention periods prevent deletion, the data will be deleted immediately after expiry of the legal retention period.

7. NEWSLETTER
7.1 Description of the processing
I send out a newsletter at irregular intervals. The newsletter informs you about news, offers and publications from me. You will only receive my newsletter if you actively subscribe to my mailing list. To subscribe to the newsletter, you only need to enter your e-mail address. All other details (such as your first name and surname) are voluntary and are used solely to personalise the e-mails. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to carry out and verify newsletter registrations. Registration takes place in several steps. First, you register for the newsletter on my website. You will then receive an e-mail from me at the e-mail address you provided. In this e-mail, I ask you to confirm that you have actually registered for the newsletter and wish to receive it. Confirmation takes place by clicking on a confirmation link in the e-mail. Only after a successful confirmation will I include you in my newsletter distribution list and send you future e-mails. As part of the double opt-in process, I save the date, time and your IP addresses both during registration and confirmation.

7.2 Purpose
The processing takes place in order to offer the newsletter function and to be able to send newsletter emails to subscribers. The collection and storage of date, time and IP addresses when subscribing to the newsletter serves to document consent given and to protect against the misuse of email addresses.

7.3 Legal basis
The processing takes place on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can access the declaration of consent on my website at any time at https://www.federicoalbanese.com/mailing-list. Your consent is voluntary. The collection and storage of date, time and IP addresses during newsletter registration is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the responsible party (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). My legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 7.2.

7.4 Storage period and withdrawal of consent
If you do not confirm your subscription to my newsletter within 24 hours of receiving the corresponding registration email, your data will be automatically deleted. I process your personal data for the duration of your newsletter subscription. You can cancel your subscription to my newsletter at any time by withdrawing your consent. A simple declaration is sufficient (by e-mail to fa-mailinglist@vdhaardt.com or by post to Federico Albanese, c/o von der haardt GmbH, Reinickendorfer Str. 17, 13347 Berlin). It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every newsletter e-mail or here https://4121024f.sibforms.com/serve/MUIEAJjjnwN4-JBzCEMwbsMUXyOAMJ6AlcFqmKppaSvcYRyCKOyUJcZv9kfb2jukYGG3wTuHeVZJoprAWWZjm7l-9hf9aMaOtDsnFwsUDwCMTWYoKj-zw4TgWlSFI2DJrViO_by96ZoRP8vZQF4dKXjRWl0ffmxZv3a_Otf7ic0SZI6OY1gOJpvQRIQxtco829s_qwmiLfhAO9dv. With the withdrawal of your consent, you will no longer be sent newsletters and your personal data will be removed from my active distribution list.

This is done within the framework of order processing. Sendinblue is a service provided by Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany. Further information on data protection at Sendinblue can be found at https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht/.

8. SOCIAL NETWORKS
8.1 Description of the processing
My website does not use so-called social media plugins. The logos or designations of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram displayed on my website are merely linked to my corresponding profiles on the social networks. A data transfer to the social networks does not take place with the integration of the logos or linking. If you click on one of the logos, you will only be redirected to the external website of the respective social network.

However, my profiles within the social networks constitute data processing. If you are logged in to the respective social network when you visit such a profile, this information will be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with my profile, e.g. comment on a post, "share", "like", "retweet" or similar, this information will also be stored in your user account. As a rule, your interactions with my profile can also be viewed by me.
On the social networks Facebook and Instagram, I have the possibility to receive statistical data about the use of my Facebook page or my Instagram profile via the so-called "Insights" function. These statistics are provided by Facebook and Instagram. The "Insights" function cannot be disabled. I cannot decide to turn this feature on or off. It is available to all Facebook fan page operators and all Instagram business account operators, regardless of whether they use the Insights function or not.

I am provided with the following data via Facebook Insights for a selectable period of time in anonymised form with regard to fans, subscribers, people reached and people interacting: Total page views, likes including origin, page activity, post interactions, reach, post reach (broken down into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared content, replies and demographic analysis, i.e. country of origin, gender and age. In the Insights statistics, it is not possible for me to identify subscribers and fans of my page and view their profiles.
Furthermore, the Instagram insights provide me with anonymised data about the development and reach of my Instagram profile and the posts, stories and videos I post there. In the Instagram insights, I also receive statistical information about the place of origin, gender and age of the subscribers to my Instagram profile.
The social networks with which you communicate store your data using pseudonyms as usage profiles and use them for advertising purposes and market research. For example, you may be shown advertisements within the social network and on other third-party websites that match your presumed interests. Cookies are usually used for this purpose, which the social network stores on your end device. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, for the exercise of which you must contact the social networks directly.

8.2 Purpose
I maintain profiles on the aforementioned social networks for the purpose of public relations and communication with customers, fans and interested parties. I use the "Insights" function of Facebook and Instagram to evaluate the reach of my posts on the social network and to make them more appealing to my visitors in the future.

8.3 Legal basis
The legal basis for data processing in the context of my profiles on social networks is the protection of my overriding legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). My legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 8.2. If you are asked for consent by the respective operator of a social network, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The data processing with regard to my Facebook page and my Instagram page is also based on joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO.

8.4 Recipients and transfer to third countries
