We are pleased that you are interested in how VIVE la DOK Filmproduktion protects your data.

The purpose of our website is to introduce you to our film projects and our team. As the operator of this website, we would like to provide you with the following information to explain how we handle your data.

"Data"means personal data. The definition in Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO is: "Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person." On the Internet, this can be your IP address in particular, but also more commonly known information such as name, telephone number or address. Excluded from the concept of data as used here is only data that cannot be attributed to you.

The "processing" of data covers almost any handling of this information. According to Art. 4 No. 2 DSGVO, this includes, for example, the collection, storage and also the deletion of data. So if our website collects your IP address, which is technically necessary to display the website, this is already data processing.

With this data protection declaration, we would like to give you a detailed and, at the same time, as comprehensible as possible insight into why we process which of your data in which way and what exactly happens with this data. At the same time, we would like to inform you how you can contact us if you have any concerns and what your rights are if you do not agree with our handling of your data. Here, we strive for an accessible and understandable presentation, however, some technical terms as well as references to the GDPR unfortunately cannot be avoided. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Display of the website

We collect technically necessary data via server log files. In particular, this involves information on the IP address, the time of the request, the URL of the content accessed, any referrer URL (website from which access is made), the access status, the browser used and the operating system used. Since this information is required to present our website correctly, stably and securely, our legal ground for processing this data is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

We delete this technically necessary data as soon as we no longer need it.

In addition to this mandatory data, there are also forms of data collection on the Internet that make use more pleasant, so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are sent by us to your device via the browser you use and stored there. Cookies serve various purposes. This can be, for example, the smooth operation of a website, but also the analysis of visitor flows.

Cookies do not harm you. They cannot run programs or install unwanted software. However, cookies give third parties the opportunity to collect the information stored in them directly from your browser.

Temporary cookies (or session cookies) are deleted as soon as you close your browser. They are used to be able to assign different requests on the same website to your device. This assignment takes place anonymously via a so-called session ID. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, can be stored for a longer period of time and transmit information.

In addition to these cookies, we also use cookies from third-party providers. These cookies can be used to analyze the use of our website (analysis cookies). They can be used to offer users advertising that matches their internet usage (advertising cookies). Or they can be used to interact with other people via social media (social media cookies).

Finally, if you yourself actively transmit data to us, you hereby consent to its processing at the same time. In this case, the legal basis is again Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO.

Dealing with data

The Internet offers a wide range of technically complex processes that are not always obvious at first glance. Accordingly, it is often not immediately apparent exactly how data is processed. Now that we have explained how we collect data when you visit our website, we would like to show you what happens to this data.

The operation of a website is a process based on the division of labor. For example, we do not operate the server for this website ourselves, but have it operated by a service provider. This means that this service provider also has access to the data collected. All service providers who receive data in connection with this website act for us as so-called processors within the meaning of Art. 28 DSGVO. We have obliged these processors to handle your data with care. Depending on the nature of the data processing, however, it may be that the service providers process data themselves alongside or at the same time without being considered processors. In these cases, the privacy policy of the respective provider is authoritative.

Websites are international. It may therefore happen that data is transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA. If this happens, we ensure that your data is treated there with the same care as within the EU or EEA. This is done, for example, through data protection agreements of the EU Commission or through other appropriate guarantees, such as contractual ones.

Information about tools from other providers

For parts of our offer, we use tools from other providers. These tools each have their own data protection declarations, to which we would like to refer you if you are interested. Below, we list the tools we use on this website and give you a brief explanation of how they work. Please note that the processed data is usually transmitted to the providers of the corresponding tool.

We use the following tools on our website:

Yoast, a plugin for search engine optimization (SEO). Yoast is a widely used tool for analyzing traffic to our website. It is offered by Yoast BV, Don Emanuelstraat 3 6602GX, Wijchen, the Netherlands. In order to make our website accessible to a larger audience, we want to make it easier to find. The legal basis for the data processing is therefore a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. You can view the provider's privacy policy at

Your rights

Even if we process your data and are entitled to do so, this does not mean that you have no rights as a data subject. On the contrary, the GDPR gives you a variety of options to restrict our use of your data.

You have a right to information. This right arises from Art. 15 DSGVO. You can ask us to confirm whether we are processing data that concerns you. If we do, you can request information from us about the purposes for which we process which categories of data, to whom this data is disclosed, how long the data is to be stored, whether you have a right to erasure or a right of appeal, where this data originates and whether automated decisions are made with regard to the processing. Furthermore, if applicable, you can request information on how we ensure the level of data protection in a third country.

You have a right to rectification. This right arises from Art. 16 DSGVO. You can demand that we correct or, if necessary, complete incorrect data concerning you.

You have a right to deletion. This right arises from Art. 17 DSGVO. If there is a reason to do so, you can demand that we delete data relating to you without delay. This is the case, for example, if you effectively revoke your consent to the processing, if the processing is no longer necessary, or if you effectively object to the processing.

You have a right to restriction of processing. This right arises from Art. 18 DSGVO. If there is a reason, you can demand that we restrict the processing of your data. This is possible, for example, if the accuracy of the data is in doubt or the manner of processing is unlawful.

You have a right to data portability. This right is derived from Art. 20 DSGVO. It essentially states that we must provide you with the data you have provided to us in a suitable format, provided that the data processing is based on consent or contract and is automated.

Finally, you have a right to object to data processing. This right is derived from Art. 21 DSGVO. You may object at any time if the data processing is based on the exercise of legitimate interests or a task within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) e), f).
