We are delighted about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of 432 Studios. The use of the 432 Studios website is generally possible without providing any personal data. However, if an individual wants to use specific services offered by our company through our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the individual concerned.
432 Studios, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most comprehensive protection of personal data processed through this website. However, internet-based data transmissions may still have security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, individuals are free to transmit personal data through alternative means, such as by telephone.
a) Personal data
Personal data refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure non-attribution to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Data controller
Data controller means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member
State law, the data controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be considered recipients.
j) Third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body other than the data subject, the data controller, the processor, and the persons who, under the direct authority of the data controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent means any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for a particular purpose.

By using cookies, 432 Studios can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collection of General Data and Information
The website of 432 Studios collects a series of general data and information with each visit to the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. The following data may be collected: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used to prevent risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, 432 Studios does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by 432 Studios on the one hand statistically and further with the aim of increasing the data
protection and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Contact Options via the Website
The website of 432 Studios contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts the data controller via email or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
6. Routine Erasure and Blocking of Personal Data
The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or as provided for by the European directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.

432 Studios will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
If 432 Studios processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them for such marketing. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to 432 Studios processing personal data for direct marketing purposes, 432 Studios will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
Additionally, the data subject has the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them by 432 Studios for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) DS-GVO, unless
the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject's rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is based on the data subject's explicit consent, 432 Studios will implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the data controller, to express their point of view, and to contest the decision.
If a data subject wishes to exercise rights regarding automated decisions, including profiling, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is an online platform operated on the Internet that allows users to communicate and interact with each other in a virtual space. It can serve as a platform for sharing opinions and experiences or allow the internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos, and connect through friend requests, among other features.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the United States or Canada, the data controller responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each time an individual page of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) is integrated, is accessed, the internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and throughout the duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the integrated Facebook buttons on our website, such as the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website
, regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of this information to Facebook is not desired by the data subject, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains the privacy settings Facebook offers to protect the data subject's privacy. In addition, various applications are available that allow data transmission to Facebook to be suppressed. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics involves the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analytics service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject has accessed a particular website (known as the referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analytics is primarily used to optimize a website and conduct cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the "_gat._anonymizeIp" add-on for Google Analytics. With this add-on, the IP address of the data subject's internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google when accessing our websites from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the collected data and information, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, compile online reports showing website activities, and provide other services related to the use of our website.
Using the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this collected personal data to third parties through the technical process.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as explained above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the internet browser used, thus permanently denying the setting of cookies. Such a setting in the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
at a later time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within their control, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.
The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that can be classified as an audiovisual platform and allows users to share photos and videos and distribute such data on other social networks.
The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta-button) has been integrated, is accessed, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding component from Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram becomes aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram always receives information through the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into Instagram at the time of accessing our website, regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram component or not. If such transmission of this information to Instagram is not desired by the data subject, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website.

It is recommended to review the complete data protection provisions of YouTube and PayPal using the provided links to obtain more detailed information and to be informed about your rights and options for protecting your data.
13. Legal basis of processing:
Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and their name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital, or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 of the GDPR).
14. Legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party:
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and shareholders.
15. Storage duration of personal data:
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
16. Legal or contractual provisions regarding the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data:
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g., information about the contractual partner). Sometimes, it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
20. Existence of automated decision-making:
As a responsible company, we do not engage in automatic decision-making or profiling.
