This data privacy statement is to provide the user of this website with information about the type, scope, and purpose of the elicitation and use of personal data via the website operator [Maurer Zilioli – Contemporary Arts] under the terms of the Federal Data Protection Act and the German Teleservices Act. The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and handles your personal data in confidence and according to statutory regulations.

General information
The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data comprises all data with which you can be personally identified.

How do we collect your data?
Firstly your data is collected when you communicate this to us. Other data is then automatically collected upon visiting our website via the Strato provider and its IT systems and is stored in log files. This is mainly technical data (e.g., Internet browser, operating system, or time of site visit). The collection of this data takes place automatically on entering our website. Strato stores the IP address of the visitor for a maximum of seven days to detect and defend against attacks.

Server log data
The provider of the web pages collects and automatically stores information in what is called server log data, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This comprises:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server enquiry
  • IP address

This data will not be consolidated with other data sources.

The processing of data is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual provisions.

What do we use your data for?
Part of your data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive free-of-charge information on the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to request that this information is amended, blocked, or deleted. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for information on this and other questions regarding data protection. You also have the right to appeal to the regulatory authority responsible.

For reasons of security and to protect the transfer of confidential content – such as, for example, orders or enquiries, which you transmit to us, the website operator – this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection when the address in your browser changes from 'http://' to 'https://' and by seeing the lock symbol in your browser's address line.

When the SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you have transmitted to us cannot be read by third parties.

Some Internet sites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not compromise your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies are only used on our website to select the user language and are therefore required purely from a technical perspective.

You can set your browser to inform you on the setting of cookies and, in individual cases, to allow cookies, accept cookies for specific instances, or to exclude them generally as well as activate the automatic deletion of the cookies when closing the browser. Functionality of the website may be limited if the cookies are deactivated.

Users' rights. Information, amendment, and deletion
As the user, you may receive free-of-charge information upon request concerning the personal data stored. As long as your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to store your data (e.g. data preservation or retention), you are entitled to have incorrect data amended and your personal data blocked or deleted.
