We process the data that various persons provide to us through their own statements, for example in the context of an enquiry by e-mail.



From customers, members and guests of events we process – if necessary – the following data: Title, name of customer, date of birth, email address, address. We process the names and image data of artists.



We only pass on personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of processing and fulfilling the contract or if it is required by law.



Data will be deleted by us as soon as storage is no longer necessary/permitted or legal, e.g. statutory, retention obligations have expired. If the basis of the processing is consent, we will restrict the processing or delete the data if the consent is revoked – unless there are legal regulations to the contrary.



When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data accruing in this context after the processing is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.



We are required by law to disclose names of creators of image data (photos or videos) whenever we publish image data. We will delete this personal data automatically as soon as we stop using the image data or following a request for deletion from a data subject.



The legal basis for data processing is:

• Legal obligations according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO (e.g. legally prescribed storage and documentation obligations, publication obligations according to copyright law)
