Information on data protection
Your data is absolutely safe with us
The Friedrichstadt-Palast only processes personal information within the scope of the statutory provisions, and in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG). This means that your personal information will only be processed in one of two cases: either a legal exception exists to the general ban on processing personal information, or you have given your express consent for us to save your data.
Handling of personal information and anonymous data
In the data protection act, "personal information" is defined as any information that can be used to identify an individual. This is primarily your name, address and telephone number. However, non-personal information may also constitute personal information when combined with other data. In contrast, anonymous data is information that cannot be attributed to a specific individual.
If you visit our website but do not complete the order process, we will not collect any personal information. Only during the order process do we collect details of your name, address, telephone number and email address in addition to your preferred method of payment in our customer database via our order form. We only process and use your personal information for service purposes within the www.palast.berlin website to provide you with offers from the Friedrichstadt-Palast and/or prevent you from having to re-enter information already provided, and only to the extent necessary.
Data will only be passed on to third parties when where this is required for fulfilment of the contractual relationship with the customer. Unless otherwise specified, your data will be stored electronically until further notice and used to process your request when you submit a query or contact us.

This opt-out cookie deletes all previously stored information including the IP address and prevents any further collection of anonymised information. IMPORTANT: if this opt-out cookie is deleted, advolution is no longer able to determine whether an opt-out has occurred. In this case, the opt-out process must then be repeated.
