The data of the log files are always stored separately from other personal data of the users. This processing of your aforementioned data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests and is justified by a balancing of interests in our favor.
We have a legitimate interest in ensuring that the website and the services offered technically work and are protected from attacks. Your legitimate interest in ensuring that your above-mentioned data is not used for this purpose does not outweigh our legitimate interest, since we use this data appropriately in accordance with the described processing purpose and you also benefit from the functionality of the website.
When registering to use our services, some personal data is collected, such as name, address, contact and communication data (e.g. telephone number and e-mail address).

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on the basis of our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 Par. 1 S.1 lit. f.

We use various types of cookies that you can control through our cookie banner:
You can also setup your browser in a way that you are informed when cookies are set and can decide individually whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
In addition to first-party cookies, which are set by ourselves as the data controller, we also use third-party cookies from other providers. You will find information on corresponding third party cookies within the respective data protection information of the online offers.
We inform our users in our cookie and consent banner about the technically required cookies that we use on RC-Photo-Stock.

The cookie banner can be accessed at any time via the footer of our website.

We use various service providers as so-called data processor according to Art. 28 GDPR, who, like us, are subject to the provisions of European data protection law and who have committed themselves accordingly.
Current Hoster: Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany.
We allow users to log in to our website with their various social media providers (currently Facebook, Google or Twitter accounts). For this we use so-called Single Sign On (SSO) procedures.
SSO is the possibility for a user to log on to a website/platform with already existing access data of other online services without RC-Photo-Stock receiving these access data. By logging in via this SSO procedure, personal data of third party providers (Facebook, Google, Twitter) can be sent to us and from us to these providers (via API requests). This means information such as name, address, e-mail address, IP address, browser used, etc.
The authorization of API requests will only take place if the user actively decides to share this data with us via the SSO procedure and has been informed in advance of all necessary information for processing and has confirmed receipt of this information. The corresponding authorization takes place within the scope of the selected social media provider. The legal basis in this case is the consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR). The revocation can be exercised via the respective platform. Once consent has been revoked, the user can no longer log in via the SSO procedure of the respective social media provider until consent is granted again.
Through a bundle of technical and organizational measures in accordance with the current state of the art, we secure both our website and the data stored in our area of responsibility against loss, destruction, unauthorized access, changes or publication by unauthorized persons.
The input and transmission of personal data is encrypted using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method.
A website encrypted with SSL transmits personal data encrypted to the server so that it is impossible for third parties to intercept or read them. Our identity is verified by a certificate. Depending on your browser, you can tell by the green address bar and/or the lock that a secure connection exists. By clicking on the lock or the green address bar you can read our online proof of identity.
By encrypting the transmission, you can assume that your entered data can only be read by us. You can see from the green address bar that you are connected to our server and that it is not the site of a third party.
You have the following rights with respect to the personal data concerning you:
You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data. The competent authority is
PO Box 20 04 44
If you have given your consent to process your data, you can revoke it at any time. Such revocation will affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it.
AS FAR AS THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA HAS BEEN RELATED TO THE BALANCING OF INTERESTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. F GDPR, YOU MAY OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA. IN THE EVENT OF SUCH AN OBJECTION, WE WOULD ASK YOU TO EXPLAIN THE REASONS WHY YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHOULD NOT BE PROCESSED AS CARRIED OUR BY US. IN THE EVENT OF YOUR JUSTIFIED OBJECTION, WE WILL EXAMIN THE FACTS OF THE CASE AND WILL EITHER STOP OR ADAPT THE DATA PROCESSING OR SHOW YOU OUT COMPELLING REASONS WORTHY OF PROTECTION ON THE BASIS OF WHICH WE WILL CONTINUE PROCESSING.
YOU CAN OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR ADVERTISING AND DATA ANALYSIS PURPOSES AT ANY TIME.
