alpha Tonträger Vertriebs GmbH attaches the utmost importance to the protection of your privacy as a user. This applies particularly to the processing of personal data. To use our website, you are not required to disclose any personal data. In certain cases, however, we need your name and your address as well as other data to be able to process your order. Where required, we will inform you accordingly. Moreover, we only store and process data that you provide to us on a voluntary basis or automatically.
Collecting and Processing
Each access to our website and the retrieval of data available on the website are recorded, including: retrieved file names, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume, notice on successful retrieval, web browser and requesting domain. Storing is required for internal statistical purposes. Moreover, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are recorded. Additional personal data are only collected if you provide them voluntarily within the context of e.g., an inquiry, order or registration.
Use and Transfer
We treat the personal data you disclose as confidential information and will transfer such data to third parties only if required in processing an order such as in case of the transfer of order data to suppliers. We will in no event lease or sell your personal data or data relatable to you as a person to any third parties for their use. Personal data will only be used for the processing of your orders, to answer your questions, as well as for the internal preparation of anonymous statistics. The only exceptions relate to services you have requested, which imply consent to the use of your additional data, as well as the disclosure of your data to governmental institutions and authorities by virtue of law. We will disclose the data collected and stored with your consent to business partners subject to contractual agreements to the extent required in your interest. Of course, our business partners are requested and obliged to comply with the statutory data protection regulations.
Where we advertise for other companies on our website, we identify them as such. In its judgment of 12 May 1998, “Liability for links” (312 O 85/98), the Hamburg Regional Court (Landgericht) clearly ruled that in setting links to other websites, joint responsibility is assumed for the contents of the linked pages if applicable, i.e. the party publishing the link may be held liable; this can only be avoided by expressly disassociating oneself from such contents, which alpha Tonträger Vertriebs GmbH hereby does. Without your consent, alpha Tonträger Vertriebs GmbH will not transfer any data to non-EU states, unless it is required for the business transaction or expressly permitted by the BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act).
Right to Obtain Information and Raise Objections
If a consent to the use of your personal data was required, you may withdraw such consent at any time by post to alpha Tonträger Vertriebs GmbH, Geschäftsleitung, Am Kletthamer Feld 10, 85435 Erding or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our data protection officer is:
Mr. Stefan Eisert
Phone: +49 (0)8123 928 639
Mobile: +49 (0)173 481 6006
Of course, being the data subject, you may also contact the data protection supervisory authority of the federal state:
Phone: +49 (0)981 531 300
Right to Data Portability
As to data that we process in an automated manner based on your consent or in performing a contract, you have the right to have such data supplied to yourself or a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only to the extent it is technically feasible.
Erasure of Personal Data
Stored personal data will be erased if the user of the website and/or the customer withdraws the consent to storing, if it is no longer necessary to know such data for fulfilling the purpose for which they were stored or if their storing is prohibited on other legal grounds. Data designated for accounting and bookkeeping purposes are not affected by the foregoing.
For reasons of security and protection in the transfer of confidential contents, such as inquiries you send us, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the lock symbol on the address bar and when the address bar of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://”. Whenever SSL encryption is activated, data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
We assure you that we will store your personal data making use of all technical and organisational resources in such a manner that they are inaccessibly to third parties. In email communications, we cannot guarantee full data security, and therefore we recommend that you use postal delivery for confidential information.
