Personal data

Personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); A natural person is regarded as identifiable who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical , physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
According to the DSGVO and other data protection regulations, all of this data is subject to special protection, which we ensure through technical and organizational measures.

Purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data as well as any consent given
As the operator, we collect, store and process personal data exclusively in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions and insofar as this is necessary and necessary to fulfill the contractual relationships between the operator and the user or to provide the requested offers. Personal data includes all information that the user provides on our website on a voluntary basis.
We evaluate this data only statistically and not traceable back to you in order to further improve our website for you.
We only collect your personal data if you order one of our newsletters, order tickets via our ticket shop or send us an email. If you do not want your personal data to be transmitted to us and stored, we ask you to refrain from providing this data voluntarily.

Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that it is no longer possible to assign the accessing client.

Opposition and removal option
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

You can subscribe to free newsletters on our website. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us.
The following data is collected:
– salutation
– First and Last Name
– E-mail address

In addition, the following data is collected when you register:
– IP address of the calling computer
– Date and time of registration

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained as part of the registration process and reference is made to this data protection declaration.
The legal basis for the processing of the data after the user has registered for the newsletter is Article 6 (1) (A) DSGVO if the user has given his / her consent.
The collection of the user’s data is used to deliver the newsletter. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s data is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
If you have given your consent to receive our newsletter, your email address will be collected, processed and used exclusively for your own advertising purposes. In this case you have given the following consent: “I agree to be informed about interesting offers by email and therefore consent to my email address being included in the newsletter mailing list. This consent can be revoked at any time and without giving reasons with effect for the future. ”You can object to the use at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.
There is a corresponding link in every newsletter for this purpose.

Contact form and email contact
There is a contact form on our website that can be used to contact us electronically to reserve tickets and / or rent rooms. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. These data are:
– company name
– First and Last Name
– Address
– country
– E-mail address
– Phone number (optional)

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet when communicating by e-mail (e-mailing) has security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties. Information that you send unencrypted via e-mail can be read, saved and used for purposes other than the intended by third parties. We therefore advise you not to send any confidential information to us without using an encryption program.
The user’s personal data transmitted in the email will be saved.
In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will only be used to process the conversation.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with the consent of the user.
The legal basis for the processing of the data that is transmitted in the course of sending an email is Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. If the aim of the email contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only to process the contact. If you contact us by e-mail, there is also the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those that were sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
The user has the option to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

Ticket orders via the external service provider CTS Eventim
(Seated tickets – seating plan booking)
In order to purchase seat-specific tickets, it is necessary for the user to provide some information, which is then processed to the extent necessary to process the ticket order.
Seat-specific tickets are generally ordered from the external service provider CTS Eventim. The customer can purchase the seat-specific tickets via the website operated by CTS Eventim (a).
Alternatively, the user is taken to a ticket shop operated by CTS Eventim, which is integrated into the operator’s website but is still functionally independent (b).
In both cases, the order is subject to CTS Eventim’s own data protection regulations. The information provided by the user as part of the seat-specific ticket order is collected directly by CTS Eventim without the operator becoming aware of it. (a)
If the seat-specific tickets are purchased on the website operated by CTS Eventim, CTS Eventim collects the buyer data without the operator gaining knowledge of or access to the buyer data. (b)
If the seat-specific tickets are purchased via the ticket shop operated by CTS Eventim on the operator’s website, CTS Eventim also collects the buyer data, but enables the operator’s employees to access them.

Storage of personal data
All personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the necessary purpose. In doing so, retention periods under tax and commercial law are taken into account. Personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of storage.

Order data processing
Insofar as we use third-party companies for data processing to fulfill their contractual obligations towards you (so-called data processing on behalf), they are contractually obliged to handle your data carefully in compliance with data protection regulations and in accordance with our instructions and not for their own purposes to use nor to pass them on to third parties.

By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, can be transmitted to Google in the USA.

Information on data protection law on the use of YouTube video
YouTube videos are integrated into our website, which are stored on and can be played directly from our website.
These are all integrated in the “extended data protection mode”, i. H. that no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will data be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube saves your data as a usage profile and uses it for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by YouTube can be found in the data protection declaration. There you will also find further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy:
