- General information on data processing
MyCinema's policy is to only process your personal data to the extent that is necessary to provide a functional website and the content/services on offer.
Our server is hosted on a secure site provided by Rushlake Media, which is based in Germany. Visitors to our site should be aware that each time they visit a website there are two general levels of information about their visit that can be retained.
The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site; the second is personal or particular information to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information.
Throughout this website, you may have an opportunity to send us personal data, such as through the "Contact" pages or by setting up a user account. By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you.
This information will only be used by the Provider for:
(a) the purposes for which it was provided by the user
(b) verification purposes and statistical analysis
1.1 Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as the Provider obtains the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6 (1a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is required to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
1.2 Data erasure and storage duration
Your personal data will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Provider is subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need to store the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Statistical and analytical information and data can be collected through the standard operation of our Internet servers and logs, as well as through "cookies".
A “cookie” is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer so that the website may identify you and track your movements on the website, remember preferences you may have selected or where an area of a website requires login access.

- date and time of access
- browser type/version

The storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The legitimate interest in data processing according to Article 6 (1f) GDPR also lies in these purposes.
3.3 Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.
When data is collected for the provision of the website’s service, that data is deleted when the session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, it is typically deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In any such cases, IP addresses of users are deleted or isolated so that it is no longer possible to assign to individual users.
- User accounts / registration

The password chosen and submitted by users cannot be viewed by access CINEMA or Rushlake Media.
You should ensure to keep your password confidential. If you become aware of anyone accessing your account without your permission, please immediately change the password on the website's ‘My Profile’ page.

The following data is also stored when a user registers for the first time:

4.4 Duration of storage
The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected during registration to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures when the data are no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after the contract has been concluded, it may be necessary to store the personal data of the contractual partner in order to meet contractual or legal obligations. Continuing obligations require the storage of personal data during the term of the contract.
4.5 Objection and removal option
You can cancel your account and/or change the stored data at any time. To do this, you can log into your account and make the desired changes or erase their account.
If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, the data can only be erased if there are no contractual or legal obligations to prevent erasure.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of access CINEMA and Rushlake Media’s IT systems.
5.4 Duration of storage
The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and the data that are transmitted by e-mail, this is the case when the respective communication with the user has ended. The communication is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified or resolved.

8. Rights of the data subject
If users’ personal data is processed, they are “data subjects” within the meaning of the GDPR. The data subject has the following rights towards the controller:

Data subjects can request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to them will be processed. If this is the case, data subjects can request information about the following:
• Purposes for which personal data are processed;
• Categories of the processed personal data;
• Recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed;
• The planned duration of the storage of personal data or the criteria for determining the duration of storage;

• The existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
• All information about the origin of the data if the personal data were not collected from the person concerned;
• A transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organisation and the appropriate guarantees according to Article 46 GDPR
8.2 Right to rectification
Data subjects have the right to rectification and/or completion of the processed personal data concerning them if they are incorrect or incomplete. The controller will carry out the rectification immediately.
8.3 Right to restriction
Under the following conditions, data subjects can request the controller to restrict the processing of their personal data:
• If the data subject denies the accuracy of the personal data concerning them for a period that enables the controller to check the accuracy of the personal data;
• If the processing of personal data is unlawful and the data subject refuses to erase the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted;
• If the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of data processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
• If the data subject has lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1 GDPR) and it has not yet been determined whether the controller's legitimate reasons outweigh the data subject's reasons
In the event of a restriction on the processing of personal data, these – apart from storage – may only be processed with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state. If the restriction has been lifted according to the above conditions, the data subject is informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
8.4 Right to erasure
8.4.1 Erasure obligation
Data subjects can request the controller to erase their personal data immediately. The controller is obliged to erase the data immediately if one of the following cases applies:
• The personal data of the data subject are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed;
• The data subject revokes their consent on which the processing is based in accordance with Article 6 (1a) or Article 9 (2a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
• The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing;
• The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (2) GDPR;
• The personal data of the data subject were processed unlawfully;
• The erasure of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the member states to which the controller is subject;
• The data subject's personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) GDPR.
8.4.2 Information to third parties
If the controller has made the personal data of the data subject public and is obliged to erase them in accordance with Article 17 (1) GDPR, the controller shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, in order inform those responsible for the data processing who process the personal data that the data subject has asked them to erase all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary:
• To exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
• To fulfil a legal obligation that requires processing under the law of the Union or of the member states to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority that has been transferred to the controller
• For reasons of public interest in the area of public health according to Article 9 (2h and i) and Art 9 (3) GDPR;
• To assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
8.5 Right to be informed
If the data subject has asserted the right to rectify, restrict or erase the processing of the personal data against the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data in question has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or the restriction of processing. This does not apply if the notification proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. The data subject has the right to be informed about the recipients of the notification.
8.6 Right to data portability
The data subject has the right to receive the personal data relating to them, which they have provided to the controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable form. The data subject also has the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, if the processing is based on consent in accordance with Article 6 (1a) GDPR or Article 9 (2a) GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 (1b) GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, the data subject also has the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another controller, as far as this is technically feasible. This must not impair the freedoms and rights of other people.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or takes place in the exercise of public authority that has been transferred to the controller.
8.7 Right to object
The data subject has the right, for reasons that arise from their particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to them based on Article 6 (1e or f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on this provision.
In the event of an objection, the controller will no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The data subject has the option, in connection with the use of information society services, regardless of Directive 2000/58/EC, to exercise their right of objection by means of automated procedures.
8.8 Right to withdraw consent under data protection law
The data subject has the right to revoke their declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing carried out based on the consent before the revocation.
8.9 Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to other legal remedies, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their place of residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if they are of the opinion that the processing of their personal data violates the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint was lodged informs the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Article 78 GDPR.
