Protection of your data
We take the protection of your data very seriously. The protection of your data is of the utmost importance to us and we treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy. The use of this website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis and consent is obtained from the person concerned. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Our privacy policy
Information on the collection of personal data and contact details of the person responsible We are pleased that you are visiting our website. In the following, we inform you about the handling of your personal data when using our website. In this context, personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified.

The responsible party for data processing on this website within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Mindfield GmbH, Marie-Curie-Str. 15, 53359 Rheinbach, Germany, Tel.: +49 2226 9094800, e-mail: info@mindfieldmusic.com.

Duration of storage
Personal data is collected in accordance with the principles of data economy and data avoidance and stored only for the period required for the purpose of storage or as required by law. If the purpose of storage no longer applies or the storage period ends, the personal data will be blocked or deleted.

Cookies
So-called cookies are used on the website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the Mindfield GmbH server and the visitor's browser. These are stored by the respective devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when visiting the website. In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain viruses or other malware. In the cookies, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. Mindfield GmbH can therefore in no way gain direct knowledge of the identity of the visitor to the website. Cookies are mostly accepted according to the basic browser settings. The browser settings can be configured in such a way that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used, or that a special notice is given in each case before a new cookie is created. However, it should be noted that the deactivation of cookies may mean that not all functions of the website can be used in the best possible way.

The use of cookies serves to make the use of the web offer of Mindfield GmbH more comfortable. For example, session cookies can be used to track whether the visitor has already visited individual pages of the website. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted. Temporary cookies are used to improve user-friendliness. They are stored on the visitor's device for a temporary period of time. When the website is visited again, it is automatically recognized that the visitor has already called up the page at an earlier time and which entries and settings were made in the process, so that these do not have to be repeated.

Cookies are also used to analyze visits to the website for statistical purposes and for the purpose of improving the offer. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognize on a new visit that the website has already been called up by the visitor before. In this case, the cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.

The data processed by cookies are justified for the above-mentioned purposes to protect the legitimate interests of Mindfield GmbH pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO.

YouTube
This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "YouTube", which belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider "YouTube" uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from "YouTube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established each time this website is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

Google Web Fonts
This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our service. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, see https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy:https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Collection and dissemination of information 
Using the Google+ button, you can publish information worldwide. Through the Google+ button, you and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you gave +1 for a content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s may be displayed as notices along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content through your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.

Use of Collected Information: In addition to the uses explained above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with applicable Google privacy policies. Google may publish aggregate statistics about users' +1 activities or share them with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or affiliated websites.
