Privacy Statement –

Information according to Art. 13 and 14 GDPR, Section 13 German Telemedia Act (TMG)


Thank you for your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is important to us. Please find information on how we treat your data below.

The operator of this website, Media Broadcast Satellite GmbH, takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We keep your personal data confidential and handle it according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

We maintain current technical measures in order to ensure data security, in particular for the protection of your personal data against risks during data transfers as well as from access by third parties. These measures are adjusted in accordance with the state of the art.

Please note that data transmission over the internet (e.g. during communication via email) may have security vulnerabilities. The complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Unless you have given your consent to do so, we do not forward your data to third parties as a general rule. However, we do depend on the use of service providers in certain areas (e.g. the hosting of our website, the creation of web pages, the evaluation of our data, social media applications, search engine entries and directions). The corresponding data protection guidelines of the companies apply when it comes to this service. Insofar as is required by law, we have concluded an agreement with all service providers concerning processing.

Purposes of data processing, legal bases and recipients

Should you contact us per email, we only use your personal data (name, email address, the text contained within your message) to get in touch with you. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR. We will only use your email address to process your inquiry. Your data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally considered the case once it becomes clear from the circumstances that the relevant issue has been conclusively resolved.

We process personal data insofar as this is necessary for establishing and fulfilling contracts and for carrying out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6(1) point (b) GDPR, Sections 91-107 German Telecommunications Act (TKG), Sections 11-15a TMG); insofar as we are legally obligated to carry out processing (Art. 6(1) point (c), Art. 6(2) GDPR, Sections 111-113d TKG); or where consent (Art. 6(1) point (a), Art. 6(7) and (8) GDPR, Section 94 TKG, Section 13(2) TMG) for the corresponding processing has been given. Additionally, processing can take place, upon assessing the basic rights and freedoms of the data subject, for the purposes of overriding legitimate interests for the controller or for a third party (Art. 6(1) point (f), 31 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG 2018). Should processing take place on our behalf (Art. 28 GDPR), we work exclusively with processors who offer sufficient safeguards that the processing takes place in accordance with legal requirements and that it guarantees the protection of the data subjects’ rights. Transfers of personal data carried out by the controller or the processor take place exclusively within the European Economic Area, or to those third countries for which the European Commission has decided that an adequate level of protection (Art. 45 GDPR) is ensured, or insofar as appropriate safeguards are provided for which can be anchored in those standard data protection clauses which have been issued or approved by the European Commission (Art. 46, 93(2) GDPR), in binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 47 GDPR), or in approved codes of conduct (Art. 40 GDPR).

What Data is collected and used?

Server Logfiles

We collect data and information through an automated system every time our website is accessed. These are saved in the log files of the server (Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, Section 15(1) TMG). These may include:

+ IP address

+ Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website

This data is processed only for the purpose of evaluating and increasing the security of the website and the network against attacks and disruptions. This data is not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently in the event of concrete indications of unlawful use. After seven days, this data is either erased or anonymised.


Cookies are small files which are placed on your hard drive (Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, Section 15(3) TMG). These enable our website to be more easily navigated and to be more user friendly. You can also view our website without cookies, however a restriction in its features cannot be ruled out in doing so. Most browsers accept cookies automatically.

Google Analytics

We use the following tracking and analysis tools:

Google Analytics: The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. The purpose is to analyse the stream of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information it has gained to analyse the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us.

Google Analytics sets a cookie in your browser. The setting of cookies allows Google to analyse the use of our website. Every time a web page on which a Google Analytics component was integrated is accessed, your internet browser is automatically triggered to transmit data to Google. In doing so, no personal data is transferred to Google. The IP address which we collect is anonymised before being forwarded to Google.

You have the opportunity to object to the collection and processing of this data by Google. To do so, you need to download and install a browser add-on this link. Further information and Google’s valid data protection regulations can be accessed here and here. Google Analytics is explained further under this link.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses “web fonts” for the uniform representation of fonts which are provided by Google. When accessing a website, your browser will load the necessary web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use must establish a connection to the Google servers. This is how Google becomes aware that our website has been accessed by your IP address. Google web fonts are used to ensure a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This is a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, one of your computer’s standard fonts will be used.

For more information regarding Google web fonts, please refer to this and Google’s privacy policy.

Google Maps

Our site uses Google Maps in order to provide a visual presentation of geographic information. Google Maps is a maps service from Google Inc. (“Google”). In order for the Google map material used to be integrated and shown in your web browser, your web browser must establish a connection to a Google server when accessing the contact page. Among other things, this server may be located in the USA. When this occurs, Google receives the information that the contact page of our website has been accessed from the IP address of your device. The Google Privacy Policy & Google Maps Additional Terms of Service can be found here.

Right of access and objection

Any data subject has the right of access under Art. 15 GDPR, the right to rectification under Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure under Art. 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Art. 18 GDPR, the right to objection under Art. 21 GDPR, as well as the right to data portability under Art. 20 GDPR, insofar as no statutory requirements stand opposed to this (in particular according to Art. 15, 17 GDPR, Sections 34 and 35 BDSG).

You have the right to demand that we give you access to your data which is stored by us at any time, as well as information on its origin, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom this data is forwarded and information on the purpose of storage.

You can object to your data being used for marketing purposes (objection to marketing).

If you have granted us consent to the use of your data, you can withdraw this at any time.

Insofar as you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is not taking place in a lawful manner, you can contact a competent data protection supervisory authority with your complaint (Article 77 GDPR combined with Section 19 BDSG).

To what extend is automated decision-making or profiling in place?

In principle, we do not use any fully automated decision-making or profiling in accordance with Article 22 GDPR. If we use this procedure in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately, to the extent that this is prescribed by law.

This privacy policy is currently valid and dates from May 2018.
