1. protection of personal data

Personal data are data that allow the identification of a person. These are, among others, the name, address, date of birth and IP address. We (Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag) take the protection and security of your personal data very seriously. The processing of your personal data is therefore only carried out with your express consent or if another legal basis (in the sense of the DSGVO) exists. Only such personal data is collected that is necessary for the execution and processing of our tasks and services or that you have voluntarily provided us with. Should questions arise in connection with these data protection provisions, please send us an e-mail to the following address office(at)

3. your right of access and deletion (data subject rights)

You have the right to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correction, objection, data transmission, restriction of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect/impermissibly processed data.

You also have the right to revoke any consent you may have given to the use of your personal data at any time. To assert your rights as a data subject (information, deletion, correction, objection and/or data transmission) please contact office(at)

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data by us violates the applicable data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, you may complain to the responsible supervisory authority.

4. use of data - security

The data made available to us will only be processed for clearly defined purposes or purposes covered by your consent. The collection of data is carried out within the framework of provisions which support the initiation of a contract or which are intended to process a contract which has already been concluded and which are in accordance with the DSGVO. This does not include use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been made anonymous. If we intend to further process your data for another purpose, we will provide you with information about this other purpose and all relevant information in accordance with Art. 13 Para. 2 DSGVO prior to this further processing.

We have taken appropriate organisational and technical precautions in accordance with the state of the art to ensure the protection of your personal data (protection against misuse both internally and externally (e.g. through firewalls, encryptions, access authorisations, etc.). However, it cannot be ruled out that information may be viewed or used by other persons due to errors in data transmission not caused by us or unauthorized access by third parties (hackers, etc.). We assume no liability for this, unless this misuse was culpably caused by us.

It is recommended to use the postal service when sending particularly sensitive data and information, as optimum security cannot be guaranteed when using e-mail.


5. transfer of data to third parties (transmission)

As a matter of principle, we do not make your personal data available to third parties. However, it may be necessary to pass on your data to trustworthy third parties in order to fulfil your order or for legal/legal reasons. These may be courts or authorities or other third parties involved (including processors working for us). In this case, your data will be passed on exclusively on the basis of the DSGVO (on the basis of your consent, for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or fulfilling a legal obligation, etc.).


6. storage/deletion of data

We do not keep your personal data longer than necessary for the purposes for which they are processed. The storage of the data is also carried out for evidence purposes, taking into account the limitation periods or as long as a claim (liability) on our part is possible.

8. We also process your data for the purpose of self-protection

(protection of property as well as employee protection and performance of traffic safety obligations) and for the purpose of prevention and clarification of criminally relevant conduct in the form of encrypted video surveillance. The evaluation of the data is exclusively for these purposes. The data will be stored for up to 72 hours, longer storage will only take place in the event of an incident for the duration of the proceedings. Your data will not be passed on to recipients who use this data for their own purposes, but only to competent authorities and courts (for reasons of preservation of evidence or to enforce claims), to insurance companies (to process insurance claims) and to lawyers and other bodies for the purpose of legal enforcement. A transfer to recipients in a third country or to an international organisation is not intended. Irrespective of the rights of data subjects to which you are entitled (see point 3. Data subject rights), it should be pointed out that there is no right to data transfer here.
