We, Get Media GmbH, are pleased that you have visited our website and are interested in our company. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and would like to inform you at this point about data protection in our company.
Insofar as we decide either alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of data processing, this includes above all the obligation to inform you transparently about the nature, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing (cf. Art. 13 and 14 DS-GVO). With this declaration (hereinafter: "data protection notice"), we inform you about the manner in which your personal data is processed by us.
Following the example of Art. 4 of the GDPR, this data protection notice is based on the following definitions:
– Personal data" (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable naturalperson ("data subject"). A person is identifiable if he or she can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, an online identifier, location data or by means of information relating to his or her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity characteristics. The identifiability can also be given by means of a linkage of such information or other additional knowledge. The origin, form or embodiment of the information is irrelevant (photographs, video or audio recordings may also contain personal data).
– Processing" (Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR) means any operation which involves the handling of personal data, whether or not by automated (i.e. technology-based) means. This includes, in particular, the collection (i.e. acquisition), recording, organisation, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment, combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data, as well as the change of a purpose or intended use on which a data processing was originally based.
– "Controller" (Art. 4 No. 7 DS-GVO) means the 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.
– “Third party" (Art. 4 No. 10 GDPR) means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who are authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor; this also includes other group-affiliated legal entities.
– A "processor" (Art. 4 No. 8 DS-GVO) is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller, in particular in accordance with the controller's instructions (e.g. IT service provider). In the sense of data protection law, a processor is in particular not a third party.
– Consent" (Art. 4 No. 11 GDPR) of the data subject means any freely given specific, informed and unambiguous indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
– Users of this website are those who are not "sellers".
– "Sellers" are those users who use our platform for commercial purposes. This is done in particular by creating content to generate followers and thereby generate revenue.
(2) Name and address of the controller
We are the controller for the processing of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 DS-GVO:
Get Media GmbH
For further information on our company, please refer to the imprint details on our website https://www.get.me/imprint.
(3) Legal basis for data processing
In principle, any processing of personal data is prohibited by law and only permitted if the data processing falls under one of the following justifications:
– Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"): Where the data subject has voluntarily, in an informed manner and unambiguously indicated by a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her for one or more specified purposes;
– Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO: If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject;
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO: If processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject (e.g. a legal obligation to keep records);
– Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. d DS-GVO: If the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person;
– Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. e DS-GVO: Where processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, or
– Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO ("Legitimate Interests"): Where processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate (in particular legal or economic) interests of the controller or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the conflicting interests or rights of the data subject (in particular where the data subject is a minor).
For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below the applicable legal basis in each case. A processing operation may also be based on several legal bases.
(4) Data deletion and storage period
For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below in each case how long the data will be stored by us and when it will be deleted or blocked. Unless an explicit storage period is specified below, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose or legal basis for the storage no longer applies. Your data will only be stored on our servers in Germany, subject to a possible transfer in accordance with the regulations in (4).
However, storage may be necessary beyond the specified time in the event of a (threatened) legal dispute with you or for reasons of tax law or commercial law. If the storage period prescribed by legal regulations expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted unless further storage by us is necessary and there is a legal basis for this.
However, you have the option of deleting your customer account at any time. To do this, either write a message to the above-mentioned contact options or use the options in your customer account.
(5) Data security
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. TSL encryption for our website), taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing as well as the existing risks of a data breach (including its probability and impact) for the data subject. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
We will be happy to provide you with more information on request.
(6) Cooperation with processors
As with any larger company, we also use external domestic and foreign service providers (e.g. for IT, logistics, telecommunications, sales and marketing) to process our business transactions. These service providers only act on our instructions and are contractually obliged to comply with the provisions of data protection law in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.
(7) Customer account
On our website you have the option to create a customer account . This is a prerequisite for subscribing to user content on our platform and for using our services.
(b) Payment processing
When a visitor subscribes to a seller's content or purchases a seller's content, we collect the associated payment data. The same applies when a user makes use of the "Donate" function to a seller. In the case of payment via PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Klarna Sofortüberweisung (Sofort), we transmit your required payment data to the selected payment service provider in order to carry out the payment in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO:
PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg
Apple Distribution International (Apple), Hollyhill Industrial Estate, Hollyhill, Cork, Ireland
Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich as part of the Klarna Group (Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 11134 Stockholm, Sweden).
Furthermore, the respective data protection provisions of the payment service provider used shall apply.
(8) Conditions for the transfer of personal data to third countries
In the course of our business relationships, your personal data may be passed on or disclosed to third party companies. These may also be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), i.e. in third countries. Such processing takes place exclusively for the fulfilment of contractual and business obligations and to maintain your business relationship with us. We will inform you about the respective details of the transfer in the following at the relevant points.
Some third countries are certified by the European Commission as having a level of data protection comparable to the EEA standard through so-called adequacy decisions (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decisions can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.html). However, in other third countries to which personal data may be transferred, there may not be a consistently high level of data protection due to a lack of legal provisions. If this is the case, we ensure that data protection is sufficiently guaranteed. This is possible through binding company regulations, standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the protection of personal data, certificates or recognised codes of conduct. Please contact our data protection officer (see under (3)) if you would like more information on this.
(9) Your rights

Unless it is an objection to direct marketing, when exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the merits of the case and either cease or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing;

However, we have no influence on whether data is also stored on servers in the USA, at least in the meantime.
The USA is not a safe third country in the sense of the GDPR and there is no adequacy decision according to Art. 45 GDPR for the data transfer. In the USA, authorities have the right to access data at companies under certain conditions and this is not compatible with the GDPR. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Meta in accordance with Art. 28 (3) DSGVO and in this agreement Meta has subjected itself to the EU standard contractual clauses.

d) Google Ads
On this website, we use Google Ads, of the company Google Ireland Ltd. Gordon House, Borrow street, Dublin 4, Ireland for visitors from the EU, a subsidiary of Google LLC with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to draw attention to our respective offers with the help of advertising on external websites. This enables us to see how successful the advertising campaigns are. In this way, we pursue the interest of only showing you advertising that is of interest to you. We also want to make our website more interesting for you.
The advertising is delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by visitors. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your end device. The information generated by this is usually transferred to Google servers in the USA and also stored there. The USA is not a safe third country in the sense of the GDPR and there is no adequacy decision according to Art. 45 GDPR for the data transfer. In the USA, authorities have access rights to the data at companies under certain conditions and this is not compatible with the GDPR. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 (3) DSGVO and in this agreement Google has subjected itself to the EU standard contractual clauses. According to Google, your IP address will not be merged with other Google data.
Further information on the subject of data protection at Google can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.
We use the newsletter delivery service Mailchimp from Intuit Inc, 2632 Marine Way Mountain View CA 94043, USA. It helps us to organise and structure our newsletter campaigns. Inuit receives the newsletter-related information, such as the email address and name. This information is usually transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there. The USA is not a safe third country in the sense of the GDPR and there is no adequacy decision according to Art. 45 GDPR for the data transfer. In the USA, authorities have access rights to data at companies under certain conditions and this is not compatible with the GDPR.

f) TikTok Pixel
This website uses the "TikTok Pixel", a tracking technology of the social network "TikTok" of TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland ("TikTok").
With the help of cookies (small text files that are stored on the end device used), information about the surfing behaviour on our website is collected in pseudonymised form, transmitted to TikTok, stored there and evaluated in order to then enable the playout of interest-based and personalised product recommendations on TikTok. The object of the information collected and processed pseudonymously in this way is basically the device ID, the device type, time stamp, the operating system used and the IP address. The information can be assigned to the person of the user with the help of further information that TikTok has stored about the user, e.g. due to the ownership of an account on the social network "TikTok". TikTok may also combine the information collected via the pixel with other information that TikTok has collected via other websites and/or in connection with the use of the social network "TikTok", and thus create pseudonymised usage profiles. In no case can the information collected be used to personally identify visitors to this website.
The TikTok Pixel further enables us to track the effectiveness of advertisements on TikTok. If the user is redirected from an ad on TikTok to pages on this website and the cookies have not yet expired, the pixel captures and can track certain user actions predefined by us (e.g. completed transactions, leads, searches on the website, views of product pages). When such an action is performed, your browser sends an HTTP request from the cookie to the TikTok server via the TikTok pixel, with which certain information about the action is transmitted. This transmission enables TikTok to compile statistics about the usage behaviour on our website after forwarding from a TikTok ad, which we use to optimise our offer.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in
accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with future effect by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with TikTok for the use of the TikTok Pixel, which obliges TikTok to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. TikTok generally transmits collected information outside the European Economic Area and relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection.
