We are delighted to welcome you on our website and thank you for your interest in our organisation. To put your mind at ease about how we use your personal data, we operate a policy of transparency regarding our data use and security measures that have been put in place. In addition, we always inform you of your legal rights regarding the use of your personal data.
When you are simply browsing our websites, we do not usually require any personal data from you. We merely collect information such as the name of your internet service provider and the site addresses that you click on. As a user you remain anonymous, as we only use this information for statistical purposes (for example to count the number of clicks on our websites).
Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily submit it, for instance by ordering tickets.
Currently this data is transmitted without encryption, so that there is an outside risk of third parties being able to intercept and read it. You are however welcome to use alternative forms of communication, such as post or fax, which offer a more secure transmission compared to unencrypted email.
User profiles / consent
We do not create user profiles. In case that we do decide to create user profiles in the future, you will be notified when you visit the website, to give you an opportunity to opt out. If you do so, we will of course respect this and refrain from creating a user profile for you.
Data for the purposes of advice, advertising or market research will only be collected or used if you have previously given your consent. Once given, this consent can be revoked at any time.
Use and disclosure of personal data / limitation of use
All personal data collected via our websites or directly from you is only collected, stored and used as reasonably required for the purposes stated previously. We always handle your personal data in accordance with the relevant legal rules and regulations, and always with your consent.
Right of access
You have the right to request information concerning your personal data stored on our systems. Please submit any such requests in writing.
Liability for content
While every care is taken to ensure that the content of our websites is correct, we cannot be held liable for the accuracy, completeness and up-to-dateness of information that is subject to change. As a service provider we are responsible under § 7 Section 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) for our own content on these sites to conform to all general laws. However, under §§ 8 – 10 of the TMG we are not obliged to monitor stored or transmitted external links or data, nor are we required to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Our obligations to remove or block the use of data under the general laws remain unaffected, but this liability only begins from the moment when a specific infringement has been made known to us. Upon notification of such violations, we will remove the content immediately.
Liability for external links
Our sites contain links to third party websites over which we have no control. We cannot be liable for the content on such external sites, which are the responsibility of their respective operators. At the time of linking, these websites were checked for any violations of the law and found to contain no unlawful content. Continuous checking of links is not reasonably to be expected of us in the absence of concrete evidence of violations. Upon notification of such violations, the links in question will be removed immediately.
The content on this site was created by the site operators and is subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, adaptation, distribution, or any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright requires the written consent of the author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Any content on this site not created directly by the operators is subject to the copyright of third parties, and is credited as such. Should you notice an infringement of copyright, we ask you to notify us directly. If violations are found, such content will be removed immediately.
To protect the personal data of our employees, customers, and suppliers from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorised access, we have put in place robust technological and procedural security measures. The levels of protection are continually monitored and updated in cooperation with data protection specialists to conform to the latest standards.
Our internet sites use so-called cookies, which help us to improve our website, making it more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally, on your hard drive).
Cookies enable us to analyse how visitors use our websites. This means that we can adapt our content to meet demand. Cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of ads and place them according to the thematic interests of our users.
Most of the cookies on our website are so-called ‘session cookies’, which are automatically deleted when you leave the website.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can change your browser settings to deactivate the acceptance of cookies if you prefer not to send such information. This will not affect your experience of using our websites (with one exception: configuration).
Use of Facebook Custom Audiences
This website uses the re-marketing function ‘Custom Audienes’ by Facebook Inc. (‘Facebook’). When you visit our website and give your consent, your IP address is encrypted (‘hashed’) and transmitted to Facebook (USA). This hashed IP address is then linked to your Facebook account. As soon as you log in, Facebook can send you an ad to our products or services. In order to do this, our website uses Facebook’s re-marketing tag.
You can revoke your consent for future use at any time, without needing to state your reasons. Please email email@example.com
Our website uses plug-ins from the website YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of these plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, Cherry Ave., USA. If you visit one of our web pages that contains a YouTube plug-in, a connection will be established between your computer and the YouTube servers. This will inform the YouTube server about which of our web pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to directly allocate your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. By using these plug-ins (for example clicking the start button of a video or sending a comment), this information is saved to your YouTube user profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
You can find more information on how the platform handles user data in YouTube’s Data Privacy Statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy.
Use of Facebook Social plug-ins
Our internet presence uses Social Plug-Ins (‘plug-ins’) by the social network facebook.com. Facebook is a company of the Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (‘Facebook’). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the caption ‘Facebook Social plug-in’.
During each visit of a webpage of our online presence that is equipped with such a plugin, the plugin causes the browser used by you to download the visual presentation of the plugin from the Facebook server and to display it.
By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has visited the respective webpage of our website. If you are a member of Facebook, and while visiting our website are logged into Facebook, Facebook due to information sent by the plugin recognizes which particular webpage on our website you are currently visiting and assigns this to your personal Facebook user account regardless of whether you activate one of the plugins. Should you then activate one of the plugins, for example by clicking the “I like” button or by submitting a comment, this will be sent to your personal user account with Facebook and stored there.
Even if you do not have a Facebook account, Facebook can collect certain data from you, such as your IP address. The purpose and extent of such data acquisition and the exploitation and use of data by Facebook, as well as information on your rights and privacy settings, can be found on Facebook’s privacy pages: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
To prevent Facebook from assigning collected data to your user account on Facebook, you have to log out from Facebook before visiting our website. In addition, you may also obtain Facebook-blocking browser add-ons.
