The personal data collected by us will be stored until the expiration of the legal storage obligation and deleted thereafter, unless we are obligated to store the data for a longer period of time according to article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO due to tax and commercial law storage and documentation obligations (from HGB, StGB or AO) or you have consented to a storage beyond that according to article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.
c) On payment
For payment we work together with the external payment provider PayPal. PayPal provides the technical infrastructure for processing the payments. PayPal is a TÜV-certified means of payment: TÜV-Saarland has awarded PayPal the title "Certified Online Payment System". The multi-level test procedure includes, among other things, data protection management and the technical requirements for data encryption.
We ourselves do not store any of your payment information (account data, credit card number, etc.) - with the exception of the payment method (PayPal, credit card).
d) When playing a movie (Intertrust ExpressPlay)
Our movies are copyrighted. To view the movies it is necessary to use the service "Intertrust ExpressPlay" of Intertrust Technologies Corporation, 920 Stewart Drive, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA (Intertrust). To do this, the user browser connects to Intertrust's license servers to retrieve the keys required to decrypt the movies. The browser transmits the data required for proper viewing to Intertrust's servers, including the user's IP address. We cannot exclude the possibility that further information about the user's system may be transmitted to the server, depending on the browser settings and copy protection system. For more information, please contact the provider of the copy protection system you are using. We ourselves do not transfer any personal data of our users directly to Intertrust.
If processing is carried out by us in this context, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) DSGVO, as well as Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
The described data exchange is necessary for the presentation and playback of the films within the scope of our contractual offer. It also serves to prevent misuse. Our legitimate interest also lies in the aforementioned reasons, provided that we process the data in the process.
The Intertrust keys provided for decryption are valid for a limited period of time. We do not store any further information about the use of Intertrust services. The other data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected.
