Data Protection Declaration

We consider the protection of your privacy as a user of our website to be extremely important and we comply with the applicable data protection legislation when processing personal data. As the institution responsible for the processing, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures in order to ensure the most comprehensive level of protection possible for the personal data which is processed via this website. However, there is always some security risk involved in Internet-based data transfers, which means that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, all data subjects are free to transfer personal data to us via other channels, such as post, for example.

Thanks to cookies, we are able to better tailor the content of our sites to the needs of our online visitors and optimise our services. In addition, this information allows us to automatically recognise you again next time you visit our website and to make navigation easier for you. For example, cookies allow us to tailor a website to suit your interests or to save your password, so that you do not need to enter this again in the future. Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. It is also possible to use our websites without cookies.

4.3 Newsletter

We use the newsletter to keep you regularly informed about ourselves and our services in the areas of “exhibitions, programme information, supporting programmes” and/or “training schemes for schools, children and families”. Should you wish to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you, information concerning the subject area which is of interest to you, as well as information which allows us to check that you are the owner of the provided email address and that you consent to receive the newsletter. No further data will be gathered. This data is only used in order to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties. The data which is gathered in this way is not compared with data which may be obtained through other components of our website. When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. The sole purpose of saving this information is to provide proof should third parties misuse an email address and register to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the owner of the email address. You can revoke your consent to the saving of the data and the email address, as well as their use, at any time. This revocation can take place at any time, via the link at the end of each newsletter, for example.
