a) Visiting the website

This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
The data mentioned will be processed by us for the following purposes:
Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
b) When installing the app myfilmfriend
When you download the app, the necessary information is transferred to the App Store you use (e.g. Apple App Store, Google Play Store), including your username, email address, account number, download time, and unique device ID. However, we do not control and are not responsible for this data collection. We only process the data provided to us to the extent necessary to download the app to your device. Beyond that they are not stored further by us.
c) When logging in and using the Service of myfilmfriend and the App
No registration and thus no user account on myfilmfriend.com is required for the use of the service. All you have to do to log in is enter the library card number and a password issued by the library. We do not collect any personal data ourselves. For the purpose of authentication by the library, an encrypted channel to the user’s library database is established. After successful authentication, the library transmits the following status information to myfilmfriend.com:
This status information is temporarily stored by myfilmfriend.com for the duration of use.
User account and watchlist
With the first login, an anonymous user account is created with the user name "myfilmfriend". In the user account, the user permanently stores pre-selected films (watch list), a PIN for child viewing, if assigned, and the language setting.
The user has the option of entering his own user name in the user account, which is then also permanently saved. If the user name is a clear name, these usage data can be associated with the person of the user. By assigning a clear name, the user actively consents to the storage and processing of this use-related data.
d) When playing a movie (Intertrust ExpressPlay)
Our movies are copyrighted. To view the movies it is necessary to use the service "Intertrust ExpressPlay" of Intertrust Technologies Corporation, 920 Stewart Drive, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA (Intertrust). To do this, the user browser connects to Intertrust's license servers to retrieve the keys required to decrypt the movies. The browser transmits the data required for proper viewing to Intertrust's servers, including the user's IP address. This only acts as a sender adress and is not processed.
The described data exchange is necessary for the presentation and playback of the films within the scope of our contractual offer. It also serves to prevent misuse. Our legitimate interest also lies in the aforementioned reasons, provided that we process the data in the process.
The Intertrust keys provided for decryption are valid for a limited period of time. We do not store any further information about the use of Intertrust services. The other data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
You have the right:
If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons for doing so which arise from your particular situation or which are directed against direct advertising.

We use the common SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) within the website/app visit in connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable 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. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
