Unless otherwise specified below, the provision of your personal data is neither required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide it will have no consequences. This applies only to the extent that no other indication is made in the subsequent processing operations. “Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Server log files
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted by your Internet browser and stored in log data (server log files). This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider. This data is used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our services. It is not possible to assign this data to a specific person. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we have concrete indications of illegal use. All log files (server logs, domain logs and maillogs) are stored for 14 days.
Use of e-mail address for sending newsletters
We use your e-mail address independently of the contract processing exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending newsletters, provided that you have expressly consented to this. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. To do so, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the distribution list.

Analysis tools and third-party tools
When visiting our website, your surfing behavior may be statistically analyzed. This is done primarily with cookies and with so-called analysis programs, in this case Matomo. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; the surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. The IP address is stored anonymously in the database of the statistics server stat.culturebase.org in the statistics tool Matomo (formerly Piwik). The data with the anonymized IP addresses are deleted after 180 days. More general statistical information on the use of the website such as browser version or calls to individual subpages, on the other hand, will generally continue to be available on the website at the start of the statistics implementation. In principle, it is not possible to specifically delete individual statistical visitor data, as they can in no case be assigned to a specific person due to anonymization!
Type of data stored by Matomo: Anonymized IP address, browser type, browser engine, browser version, plugins, operating system, device type, screen resolution, location, call history, call origin (e.g. Google), date/time, time spent on homepage and subpages, recurring visit yes/no.
Access to the data
Employees of Kulturserver and individuals approved by them for the statistics of a specific website, mostly the online editorial staff of the project. They are granted password-protected access to the data of the respective project.
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

Use of Facebook
We have integrated functions of the Facebook service (Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) on our site. When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
Facebook is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thus undertakes to comply with EU data protection requirements: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active.
