Privacy Policy for the Services offered by Repitched

This statement was translated from German. If there are any discrepancies between the translated version and the German version, the German version shall always apply.

The protection of your personal data is of primary concern for Repitched. Because you must register in order to use all of the Repitched services, we hereby inform you of how your data is protected. This Privacy Policy applies to the services of Repitched and not to websites that appear in search results, web pages that refer to the services of Repitched or websites that are simply displayed as links. Repitched has no control over data or personal information collected by third parties.

This privacy notice explains what information we collect during your visit to our website or when using our applications and how this information is used.

1. Visiting Our Website / Using Our Applications

If you use the services our website provides, our web servers record, for system security purposes, the domain name or IP address of the requesting computer, the file request of the client (file name and URL), the HTTP response code and the website page which referred you to us. This data shall be deleted after each Internet session provided it is not needed for transaction processing (IP address).

Repitched collects and uses personal information from you, where necessary and especially for the use of Repitched’s sales tools, so that you can use the website and the services of Repitched. These particular features record the beginning and end of your session and the extent to which you used the services offered on of our site.

Repitched shall handle this information with utmost confidentiality. The transfer of such data for purposes of advertising, market research and user-oriented development of our services will take place only insofar as Repitched creates user profiles using pseudonyms. You are able to contest this type of use of your data. It does not allow us to merge or combine user profiles with information about the bearer of the pseudonym.

In accordance with statutory requirements Repitched may, however, be required to give authorities and courts information about stored data for law enforcement or security purposes and to transmit such data.

2. Cookies

A session cookie is used to optimize our website and to determine which page is to be loaded. These cookies are valid only for the current session, do not contain personal information about you and are in line with the requirements of the Information Society for Determining the Distribution of Advertising Media (IVW).

Cookies are small amounts of data that are stored on your computer. Cookies help recognize sites which you repeatedly visit and help analyze your Internet activities. Personal data is not saved; your Internet usage is analyzed to determine which advertisements you see.

Advertisements of other companies are visible on our Internet site at times. Companies that display these advertisements on our site may employ their own cookies. These cookies have different life spans and can only contain data about you if you have previously entered information on that website.

You can influence the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. It is possible, for example, to accept or refuse cookies generally or on a case by case basis.

In order to fully utilize Repitched, we recommend you to enable the cookies for Repitched.

3. Targeting of Cookies

When you use Repitched’s services or visit our site, an anonymous user name and another cookie records your interests: i.e. the type of music (e.g. theme of music) or the frequency of use (number of pages viewed in one day).

Additionally, contents and advertising on the Repitched site are optimized based on certain attributes using a pseudonym user number with the cookie. These include contract status and usage of the products and services offered by CORTUNE, as well as originating country, state and region.

Please note that it is impossible to identify your name, address or any other personal data based on your user number, the cookies used, or your interests. This data is used for the following purposes:

  • To insert information and advertisements that match your interests. Our advertisers know neither your name nor your personal interests
  • To create anonymous user groups based on interests (clusters)
  • For the statistical analysis in order to tailor our offer to the interests of our users.

Your privacy will be respected by Repitched! Therefore we do not disclose your personal data to third parties without your consent!

4. Collection and Use of Information

The main purpose of the collection of personal data is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient and personal customer and user experience. By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, you consent to our use of your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To provide the services and the customer service requested by you
  • To settle disputes, collect fees and payments and to resolve issues
  • To prevent, detect and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities and to enforce the terms and conditions of Repitched
  • To adapt, measure and improve our services, content and advertising
  • To notify you about our services for targeted marketing purposes, service updates and promotional offers based on your communication preferences.
  • To check data for accuracy and to verify it through third parties.

When registering at Repitched you need to specify a user name and password if you, as a music artist, want to use CORTUNE’s services in their entirety. To edit your activities reliably and safely, and to provide further support to you, we will need your contract data. Usage data includes the contact information required by Repitched such as address, name, email address, as well as past sales.

The usage data is, for example, for sale, purchase and download history, click streams, logs, page impressions, but only in relation to Repitched services.

No data is stored by Repitched in connection with item recommendations.

Repitched would like to emphasize that in setting up a seller account your personal data shall be collected and used. Repitched treats this information confidentially and only makes this available to third parties if this transmission of data complies with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, or if you expressly agree to such disclosure. By order of the competent authorities such as courts and law enforcement authorities, we may, in some cases, disclose information about this data (inventory data), to the extent necessary for the purposes of law enforcement, security or for enforcing regulated claims.

In order to use certain applications (such as JavaScript), you must enter your user name and password yourself in order to access interfaces of external services. In doing so, you agree to the conditions of use of these services.

5. Personalized Product Recommendations

While visiting and using the services of Repitched, product recommendations will be displayed in various places. These are based on the analysis of the pages you visit and your click behavior.

The information collected for the purpose of generating product recommendations is only used on Repitched’s website and for the services offered therein. We are only able to recognize your pseudonym; the information from the product recommendations is not linked to your customer data.

This information is only stored under a pseudonym so that you cannot be identified.

6. Change of Use and Contract Data

You can view all of your contract data in your personal admin area. There you can view and change the data which you provided to Repitched at any time. You are required to provide truthful information in order to comply with all tax obligations and to abide by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Repitched maintains a seamless history of the changed usage and contract information in order to reliably be able to identify buyer and seller and for tax purposes. Repitched does this in order to fulfil its own information and documentation obligations to third parties, in particular the authorities and courts.

7. No Disclosure of Personal Data

Repitched does not give your personal information to third parties unless you have given us your express consent. In accordance with statutory requirements, Repitched may, however, be required to give authorities and courts information about stored data for law enforcement or security purposes and to transmit data.

8. Security

In order to protect the data which we collect and process from unauthorized access and abuse, Repitched has implemented extensive technical and organizational security measures which are reviewed at regular intervals and kept up-to-date.

9. Right to Access

As a user of our site you have the right to request information from us about the data stored by us under your person or your pseudonym. The information will only be issued by Repitched electronically and at your express request.

Other data will be deleted when there is no longer a specific purpose and provided that legislation does not require the data to be stored for a longer period of time.
