In the case of informational visits, this data will be collected and used in non-personalised form on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in conjunction with Section 3 of the Saxon Data Protection Implementing Act (SächsDSDG). This is necessary for the performance of our tasks and is done in order to enable the use of the internet pages you have accessed under www.skd.museum or our web portals. In addition, this data is used for statistical purposes, as well as for improving the website of the SKD. The IP address is only stored for the duration of your visit to the website; no further analysis takes place.
In order to facilitate the use of the SKD web portals, “cookies” are used. Cookies are small text files that can be stored by the browser on the hard drive of the computer or mobile device and are helpful for using a website.
On the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) GDPR in conjunction with Section 3 SächsDSDG, the web portals of the SKD use what are known as session cookies (also called temporary cookies), which are stored only for the duration of your visit to a website. The purpose of these cookies is to keep track of your terminal devices when you switch between pages during a visit to the SKD web portals and to be able to ascertain when your visit ends. Cookies will be deleted as soon as you end your browser session. In this context, no collection or storage of personal data in cookies takes place. Nor is any technology used whereby information generated by cookies is linked to user data.
When you visit the website, you must decide whether you wish to accept or reject technically non-essential cookies. If you do not wish to accept non-essential cookies, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions on our website.
On the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) GDPR in conjunction with Section 3 SächsDSDG, the SKD uses the open-source software “Matomo”, produced by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (NZBN 6106769), in order to analyse user access information. This software makes it possible to analyse how a website is used and thereby make any necessary improvements to the website. For this purpose, Matomo places cookies. The resulting user information is transmitted to the SKD’s internet servers, along with your IP address, and stored in order to analyse usage data. During this process, your IP address is immediately anonymised, so that there is no possibility of tracing it back to you as the user. The information obtained in this way will not be passed on to third parties.
When you visit the website, you must decide whether you wish to accept or reject technically non-essential cookies. To do this, you only have to click on the box below (opt-in procedure).
You can also decide here whether a unique web analysis cookie can be stored in your browser (browser fingerprinting) in order to enable the operator of the website to collect and analyse various statistical data. If you wish to opt out, click on the following link to place the Matomo deactivation cookie in your browser.
You may choose to prevent this website aggregating and analysing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.
Your rights as a data subject
If you have consented to the processing of data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a) GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time in writing or by email with effect for the future. In the event of such revocation, we will immediately delete the stored data. This shall not apply if these data are still necessary for performance of the contractual relationship. We shall also be entitled to process and/or use the data in spite of the revocation if this is done within the framework of a contractual relationship or quasi-contractual relationship of trust, and/or insofar as it is necessary in order to safeguard our legitimate interests and, after weighing up the interests on both sides, there is no reason to believe that the user has an overriding legitimate interest in rejecting such processing and/or use.
You are also entitled to the following rights if the legal requirements are met:
- Right to information about the personal data held concerning you (Art. 15 GRPR)
- Right to rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you (Art. 16 GDPR)
- Right to erasure of personal data held concerning you (Art. 17 GDPR)
- Right to restriction of processing personal data (Art. 18 GDPR)
- Right to object to the processing of personal data (Art. 21 GDPR)
Under Article 77 GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes legal regulations.
Transmission of data to third parties, duration of storage and data security
Your personal data will generally not be passed on to third parties. Your data will only be transmitted if you have expressly agreed to such transmission, or if transmission is necessary for implementing and/or processing your orders, for sending the newsletter, or for responding to your queries. Furthermore, transmission is possible on the basis of a legal or official obligation. The conditions set out in Articles 28, 29 GDPR for data processing by a contracted processor are complied with.
Unless otherwise specified, your personal data will be stored for as long as is necessary for fulfilment of the respective purposes. If the user relationship is terminated, the data in the internal database will be deleted on a regular basis. This shall not include inventory data insofar as these are necessary for the establishment, content or alteration of the contractual relationship.
In order to protect your data, the website www.skd.museum and our web portals are provided using a secure SSL connection between the user’s server and the browser, i.e. the data is transmitted in encrypted form.
Data on our web portals are stored only on servers belonging to the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden inside the European Union (EU), unless you are informed otherwise.
We explicitly point out that data protection and data security for data transmission in open networks such as the Internet cannot be fully guaranteed given the current state of technology. The user is aware that, from a technical point of view, the provider is able to view the web page data stored on the web servers, and possibly also other data of the user stored there, at any time. The user is fully responsible for the security and safeguarding of the data he or she transmits to the Internet and stores on web servers. We cannot accept any liability for the disclosure of data due to errors or unauthorised access by third parties.
Notes on the web portals
The web portals of the SKD use Youtube, a platform provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter “Google”) on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) GDPR in conjunction with Section 3 SächsDSDG in order to present their online services in an attractive way.
Information about the location and about which video has been viewed for how long is used for statistical purposes. These items of information can only be viewed independently of each other and independently of the username. The data is processed for typical museum purposes. The data is stored for the duration for which it is necessary to achieve this purpose and is deleted after the purpose has been fulfilled.
Be careful what information you disclose in comments on these channels. These are visible to other visitors to the site and to administrators as well. Because the pages are generally accessible, information that you share with a page is public data. This means that a comment can also be used outside of Youtube. Bear in mind that this information may be indexed in search engines, including Google.
