Please read the following declaration in order to understand how your personal data is handled.
In principle, you can visit our websites without having to disclose any personal data. It may, however, be necessary to process and use your personal data in order to provide specific services. Metrics Media Ltd. as the operator of this website complies with the applicable data protection legislation. We collect, process and use your data only if you grant your consent or if to do so is permitted by a legal stipulation. However, we only collect, process and use data that is required to provide and make use of our services or data that is made available to us by you voluntarily.

Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”; these text files are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use our website. The information generated by the cookie on how you use the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA where it is stored.
However, due to our activation of IP anonymization on these websites, Google shortens your IP address before it is sent if it is within a member state of the EU or a member state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened. Google has been appointed by us to use this information to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services in relation to the use of our website and the Internet. The IP address transferred by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be collocated with other data stored by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software settings; please note, however, that you will not be able to use all the functions of our website if cookies are disabled.

Some of the letsbands services may use plug-ins of the social network of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plug-ins enable you to link your letsbands account with your Facebook account by entering your Facebook account details. If you have agreed to this usage, some of your Facebook data will be transferred to the device that you use letsbands services for in order to provide Facebook services in connection with the services from letsbands. These plug-ins enable you to post some of your data on your Facebook wall or send it to your Facebook friends.
We also offer you the option of registering with letsbands by using the data stored in your Facebook account via the “Facebook Connect” service. Once you have granted your consent Facebook will transfer data to us. This data will be used to create a new user account with letsbands. The data sent to letsbands is a one-off. This step does not create a permanent link between your Facebook user account and letsbands. Please read through the data protection stipulations at Facebook as your letsbands activities that are published on Facebook in this manner are no longer governed by this data protection declaration.
