FSK – Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft


Introduction and terms (> Deutsche Fassung)



With the operation of our website www.fsk-freigaben.de (hereinafter referred to as "website") we process personal data. These will be treated confidentially by us and processed in accordance with the applicable laws - in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With our data protection regulations we want to inform you which personal data we collect from you, for which purposes and on which legal basis we use it and, if applicable, to whom we disclose it. In addition, we will explain to you which rights you have to protect and enforce your data protection.


Our data protection regulations contain technical terms which are defined in the GDPR and the BDSG. For your better understanding we would like to explain these terms in simple words in advance:

2.1 Personal Data

"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). Information of an identified person can be e.g. the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data also includes data in which the identity is not immediately apparent but can be determined by combining one's own or third-party information and thus finding out who it is. A person becomes identifiable, for example, by providing his/her address or bank details, date of birth or user name, IP addresses and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows conclusions to be drawn about a person.


2.2 Processing


Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR defines "processing" as any operation or set of operations performed on personal data. This concerns in particular the collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, transmission, dissemination or any other form of supply, comparison or association, limitation, erasure or destruction of personal data.
