Privacy Policy

Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation gGmbH appreciates the importance of personal data. As with all our business processes, the protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern to which we pay special attention. Personal data are collected, processed and used in accordance with the national data protection regulations of the country in which the responsible company (data controller) is located. However, please note that the website of Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation gGmbH may include links to other third-party websites, which are not covered by this privacy policy.

Collection and processing of personal data

If you apply for an event, your personal data (name and e-mail address) will only be used to process the registration and conduct the events. Your personal data will be deleted and not stored after the scheduled time of the event.

When visiting our websites, our internet servers merely register the shortened IP address, the name of the website that linked you to our page, the pages accessed within our website, the type of web browser used as well as the date and duration of your visit. Due to the shortened IP address, user identification is impossible. Other personal data such as name, address, phone number or e-mail address are transmitted only if you contact us directly or register for a newsletter or closed user group. The data submitted depends on the individual registration mask. Obligatory information is expressly labelled as such; all other information is voluntary.

Use and disclosure of personal data and specification of purpose

It is our policy to respect your privacy and to ensure that your personal data will neither be disclosed nor sold to third parties outside Deutsche Börse Group, except such disclosure as permitted by law or explicitly agreed upon by you. We will under no circumstances sell your personal data to third parties. This privacy statement refers to all your personal data regardless of whether they are collected automatically in the course of your use of our website or with your prior consent. User data is used only for internal, statistical purposes (in an anonymized form), to answer an inquiry or to provide a requested service.

Personal data is not disclosed to governmental authorities except in cases where it is mandatorily required.

Data security

The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation gGmbH uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect the data we have under our control against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.

Right to information, public statement of data processing and other rights

Upon written request, we, the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation gGmbH, will inform you by letter if and what personal data we store as defined by the applicable law.
