Privacy Policy

The Kunsthalle HGN takes data pro­tec­tion se­ri­ous­ly and at­taches great im­por­tance to the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al­i­ty rights. We un­der­take to com­ply with the legal data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions, and use tech­ni­cal and or­ga­ni­za­tion­al se­cu­ri­ty mea­sures to pro­tect your per­son­al data (name, ad­dress, tele­phone number, e-mail ad­dress, etc.) against un­au­tho­rized access, im­prop­er use, de­struc­tion and loss. We make every ef­fort to im­prove our se­cu­ri­ty mea­sures on an on­go­ing basis in ac­cor­dance with tech­ni­cal de­vel­op­ments.

1. Legal basis

The sub­ject of data pri­va­cy is per­son­al data. Ac­cord­ing to Section 3 (1) of the 1 LDSG (State Data Pro­tec­tion Act), this refers to per­son­al or ma­te­ri­al de­tails of an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­u­ral per­son. This in­cludes, for ex­am­ple, de­tails such as name, post­al ad­dress, e-mail ad­dress, tele­phone number or IP ad­dress.

2. Processing of personal data

We use your per­son­al data only for the pur­pose for which it was col­lect­ed (e. g. an­swer­ing en­qui­ries, guided tour res­er­va­tions, work­shops and other ac­tiv­i­ties, send­ing in­for­ma­tion ma­te­ri­al, send­ing the news­let­ter, par­tic­i­pa­tion in con­tests). This data is de­leted as soon as the trans­ac­tion is com­pleted. The data en­tered in on­line forms for the news­let­ter and the press mail­ing list is stored until can­cel­la­tion. Your data will not be passed on to third par­ties with­out your ex­press con­sent. All of the per­sons work­ing for us are obliged to ob­serve data se­cre­cy pur­su­ant to § 6 LDSG. In ad­di­tion, the Kunsthalle HGN holds reg­u­lar sem­i­nars on data pro­tec­tion.

3. Logging of accesses

Every time a user accesses the Kunsthalle HGN web­site, and every time a file is accessed, data on the trans­ac­tion is stored tem­po­rar­i­ly and pro­cessed in a log file. The data is stored for in­ter­nal, system-specific and sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses to im­prove our in­for­ma­tion offer. The logged data is eval­u­ated in­ter­nally at ir­reg­u­lar in­ter­vals by em­ploy­ees of the Kunsthalle HGN, e. g. accesses dur­ing the course of an ex­hi­bi­tion. The eval­u­ation is not user-specific, i. e. the Kunsthalle HGN does not com­pile any per­son­al user pro­files, not even with pseu­do­nyms (e. g. IP ad­dresses). The data is also not merged with other data sources and there­fore does not allow any con­clu­sions to be drawn about spe­cif­ic in­di­vid­u­als.

The fol­lowing data is logged:

  • IP address
  • name of the file accessed
  • date and time of access
  • data vol­ume trans­ferred
  • access sta­tus (file trans­ferred, file not found, com­mand not ex­e­cuted, etc.)
  • re­ferrer (the re­ferrer is the In­ter­net ad­dress of the web­site from which the user accessed the Kunsthalle HGN web­site by click­ing on a link, e. g. search en­gines or other sites)
4. Use of cookies

For data col­lec­tion and stor­age, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small data pack­ages that your brows­er stores for us in your com­put­er. There are two types of cookies. Tem­po­rary cookies are de­leted au­to­mat­ically when you close your brows­er (session cookies). Per­ma­nent cookies on the other hand, have a max­i­mum life­time of up to one month. This type of cookie makes it pos­si­ble for you to be rec­og­nized when you call up the web­site again after leaving it. This is used, for ex­am­ple, by the “stay logged in” func­tion. You can re­fuse to ac­cept cookies in your brows­er settings.

5. Analytics

Only in ex­cep­tion­al cases is the full IP ad­dress trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the US and short­ened there. On be­half of the op­er­a­tor of this web­site, Google will use this in­for­ma­tion to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site, to com­pile re­ports on web­site ac­tiv­i­ty, and to pro­vide other ser­vices related to web­site us­age and In­ter­net us­age against the web­site op­er­a­tor.
