Data Protection

As the operator of the website, Elements Entertainment GmbH is the responsible authority for the processing of the personal data of website users. You can find our contact information in the legal notice of our website. Your contact persons for any questions regarding the processing of personal data can be found below in this Privacy Policy.

We take the protection of your privacy and your private data very seriously. We only collect, store and use your personal data in accordance with the content of this Privacy Policy as well as the applicable data protection regulations, particularly the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and national data protection regulations.

In this Privacy Policy, we will inform you of the scope and purpose of processing personal data in connection with the use of our website.


Personal data
Personal data is information on an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes all information relating to your identity, such as your name, email address or postal address. Information that cannot be associated with your identity (for example, statistical information such as the number of website users), is not considered personal information.

In principle, you can use our website without disclosing your identity and without entering personal data. In this case, we only record general information on the visit to our website. However, for some of the services we offer, personal data is collected from you. In principle, we will then only process this data for the purposes of using the website, particularly in order to provide the desired information. When collecting personal data, only data that is absolutely necessary must be provided. In addition, entering further information may be possible, but this is considered voluntary information. We will always state whether you are entering mandatory or voluntary information in each case. We will inform you of the specific details in the relevant section of this Privacy Policy.

No automatic decision-making on the basis of your personal data takes place in connection with the use of our website.


Processing personal information
We store your information on particularly well protected servers within the European Union. These servers are protected against the loss, destruction, access, amendment or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons through technical and organisational measures. Your data can only be accessed by a small number of authorised persons. They are responsible for technical, commercial and editorial server support. Despite regular monitoring, complete protection against all dangers is not possible. 

Your personal data is encrypted and transmitted over the Internet. We use SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) for the transmission of data.


Transmission of personal data to third parties
In principle, we only use your personal information to provide the services that you request. If external service providers are used within the context of providing these services, they also only have access to the data for the purposes of providing the service. We ensure compliance with data protection regulations through technical and organisational measures and obligate our external service providers to do so too.

Furthermore, we do not transmit data to third parties without your express consent, especially not for advertising purposes. Your personal data is only transmitted if you have consented to the transmission of data yourself or if we are entitled or obliged to do so on the basis of legal provisions and/or official or judicial orders. In particular, this may be for the provision of information for the purposes of law enforcement, the prevention of risks, or to enforce intellectual property rights.


Legal bases for data processing
If we receive confirmation of your consent for processing your personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 letter a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the data processing. If we process your personal data because it is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for any type of quasi-contractual relationship with you, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the data processing.

If we process your personal data to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis for the data processing. Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR also serves as the legal basis for data processing if the processing of your personal data is required to preserve a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and your interests, basic rights and freedoms do not require the protection of personal data.

In the context of this privacy policy, we will always state the legal basis for processing your personal data.


Deletion of data and storage duration
In principle, we will always delete or block your personal data when the purpose for storing it no longer applies. However, data may also be stored if this is provided for by legal requirements to which we are subject, with regard to legal retention and documentation obligations, for example. In such a case, we shall delete or block your personal data once the relevant requirements have ceased toapply.


Using our website


Information regarding your computer
Each time our website is visited, we collect the following information regarding your computer, irrespective of whether or not you have registered: your computer’s IP address, the request sent by your browser and the time of this request. Furthermore, the status and the amount of data transferred for this request are recorded. We also collect product and version information regarding the browser used and the computer’s operating system. We also record from which website our website was accessed. Your computer’s IP address is only stored during the time that the website is used and shall subsequently be deleted or anonymised by means of shortening. The other data is stored for a limited period of time.

We use this data for the operation of the website, in particular to determine and solve errors, to determine the usage figures of the website and to make adjustments or improvements. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.


Use of cookies 
Cookies are used on our website, as on many websites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer which store certain settings and data for exchange with our website via your browser. Normally, a cookie contains the name of the domain from which the cookie file was sent as well as information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.

Cookies enable us to recognise your computer and make any default settings available immediately. Cookies help us to improve the website and offer you a better, even more personalised service. This is also considered our legitimate interest in processing data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.

The cookies that we use are "session cookies", which are automatically deleted after the browser session has ended. Occasionally, cookies with a longer storage period may be used so that your default settings and preferences are enabled when you next visit our website.

Most browsers are set up so that they accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or change the settings of your browser so that you are notified when cookies are sent. It is also possible to manually delete cookies that have already been stored using the browser settings. Please be aware that you may not be able to use our website in full or at all if you refuse the storage of cookies or delete necessary cookies.


Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics for statistical analysis. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94034, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookies is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google shortens your IP address in advance within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the relevant settings in your browser software. However, please note that, in this case, you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website in full. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link

You can find more information on this subject at or (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). Please note that Google Analytics is extended by the code “anonymizeIp();” on our website in order to anonymise IP addresses, whereby the final octet is deleted.

We believe that data processing for the purpose of optimising our website is to be considered a legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of the safeguards we have put in place (anonymisation and the option to object).


Retargeting and remarketing 
Retargeting or remarketing refers to technology that displays suitable advertising to users that have visited a certain website, even after they have left this website. For this purpose, it is necessary that Internet users are recognised again outside of the website itself. Therefore, cookies from the respective service provider are used. Previous user behaviour is also taken into consideration. For example, if a user looks at certain products, these products or similar products may later be shown on other websites as advertising. This is personalised advertising that is adapted to the needs of individual users. For this personalised advertising, beyond user recognition, it is not necessary that the user be identified. We also do not merge data used for retargeting and remarketing with other data.

We use such technology to display advertisements on the Internet. We use third-party providers to display advertising. We use services provided by Google, among others, which enable the automatic insertion of product advertising that would interest the Internet user. This function is executed through the use of cookies. More information on this technology can be found in the Google privacy policy at The installation of cookies for Google Remarketing and Google AdWords Conversion Tracking can be prevented via the settings of the respective browser software by visiting the website and changing the corresponding settings.

The insertion of advertising is considered our legitimate interest in processing data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.
