Data Policy


This Privacy Policy informs users about the nature, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider (collector) 

Ostendstrasse 106 
70188 Stuttgart
Telephone number: 0711 481027
Email address: studio@filmbilder.de

on this website (in the following “range of products and services").

The legal bases of data privacy can be found in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data/server log files

The provider (or its web space provider) collects data pertaining to each access to the range of products and services (so-called server log files). Access data includes:

Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, volume of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider only uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the range of products and services. However, the provider reserves the right to retrospectively review the log data if, on the basis of concrete evidence, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.

Personal data is erased by the provider every 6 months, insofar as there are no conflicting legal retention obligations.

In addition to the aforementioned data, the address entered by the user when using the shop is stored. It solely serves the processing of the user’s order.

Establishing contact

When contacting the provider (for example using the contact form or via email), the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and posts

When users leave comments in the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is for the security of the provider, in the event that someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, illegal political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be prosecuted for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may be the case that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always implies that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party provider") can use the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. Consequently, the IP address is required to show this content. However, we strive to only use such content, whose respective provider merely uses the IP address to supply the content. However, we do not have any influence on the third party provider possible storing the IP address for statistical purposes for example. If we are aware of this, we will inform the users accordingly.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are stored on the users’ computer and enable an analysis of the users’ use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on the use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the users’ IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to this. The complete IP address is only transmitted to a Google sever in the USA and stored there in exceptional cases. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information, to analyse the use of the website by the users, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in line with Google Analytics is not consolidated with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of the cookies using a corresponding setting in their browser software; however in this case, we would like to point out, that these users may not have unlimited access to all functions of this website. Furthermore, the users can prevent the collection of data created by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Use of Facebook social plugins

This website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by the Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook social plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user calls a web page of this range of products and services, which contains such a plugin, his/her browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is directly transmitted to your browser by Facebook and is incorporated into the website by the browser. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the volume of data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore, informs users according to its level of awareness:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the range of products and services. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his/her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example press the like button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to Facebook from your browser and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will identify and store his/her IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymised IP addresses are stored in Germany.

Users can view the Facebook privacy policies, to obtain information pertaining to the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the rights and setting options to protect the user’s privacy at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him /her via this website or associate it with his/her member data stored on Facebook, he/she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example using the “Facebook blocker”.

+1 button from Google+

This website uses the “+1” button on the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can be recognised by the “+1” sign on a white or coloured background.

When a user accesses a web page on this website, which contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection to the Google servers. The content of the “+1” button is sent directly to Google’s browser and incorporated into the website by Google. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the volume of data Google collects by means of the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the button. Such data is only collected and processed, amongst others the IP address, for members, who are logged in.

Users can refer to the Google privacy policies on the “+1” button regarding the purpose and scope of data collection by Google as well as their rights and setting options, to protect their privacy: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html und der FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.


This website uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be recognised by terms such as “Twitter” or “follow”, associated with a stylised blue bird. With the help of the buttons, it is possible to share a post or page of this website on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

When a user accesses a web page on this website, which contains such a button, his/her browser establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is directly transmitted to the user's browser by Twitter. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the volume of data Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and will inform users according to its level of awareness. According to Twitter, merely the user’s IP address and the URL of the respective web page when referencing the button is transmitted but not used for purposes other than the display of the button. Further information can be found in the Twitter privacy policy http://twitter.com/privacy.
