Privacy Policy

Thank you very much for your interest in the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf, which takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. With this data protection declaration we would therefore like to give you an overview of how the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf guarantees the protection of your data, what kind of data is collected for what purpose and how it is used.

Personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes information such as your name, address, postal address and telephone number.
Information that is not associated with your identity (such as the number of users of the site) is not included. In principle, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity.
Personal data is collected when you voluntarily provide us with it, for example when you contact us. This is necessary in order to process your request. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will, of course, be used exclusively for the purpose for which you provide it to us in your correspondence. Any communication of this information is expressly made on a voluntary basis and with your consent. Corresponding information is stored on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to these data is only possible for a few persons who are responsible for the technical-administrative support of the servers.
This applies to the case:

Enquiries via e-mail

- First name and surname
- Email address
- Text

Orders for press and information material

- Salutation
- Title
- First name and surname
- Firm
- Address
- Phone number
- Email address
- Your questions and suggestions and/or selection of the ordered material

Each time a user accesses a page from the offer of the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf and each time a file is retrieved, data on this process is stored in a log file. This data is not personal, so we cannot trace which user accessed which data.

In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval:

- Name of the retrieved file,
- Date and time of the retrieval,
- Amount of data transferred,
- Message indicating whether the retrieval was successful,
- Description of the type of web browser used.

The IP address of the computer from which the request was sent is not stored. Personal user profiles can therefore not be created. The stored data is only evaluated for statistical purposes. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Duration of storage

We store your data only as long as they are necessary for the purpose for which they are used. If you order information material or brochures, your data will be deleted after it has been sent to you. Your data from enquiries addressed to us will be stored in paper and/or electronic form in accordance with the periods applicable for the storage of written material.

Use of cookies

So-called cookies are used when using the Internet offer. Cookies are small text information files that are sent from our website and stored on your computer by your browser during access. You can prevent the use of cookies by deactivating the cookie function in your browser. If you do so, however, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of the website of the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf. For information on how to prevent the use of cookies, please refer to the instructions of your browser manufacturer.

Passing on personal data to third parties

In the case of information orders, we only use your personal information within the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf and, if applicable, within a company commissioned with the dispatch of documents. We will not pass on your data to third parties without your express consent. Insofar as we are obliged to do so by law or court order, we will forward your data to bodies entitled to receive such information.

Protection of minors

Children and persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children, do not collect them and do not pass them on to third parties.

Privacy policy for social media

The Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf takes the current discussion about data protection in social networks very seriously. At present, it has not been conclusively clarified legally, whether and to what extent all networks offer their services in accordance with European data protection regulations.
We therefore expressly draw your attention to the fact that the services used by the Foundation, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo, store the data of their users (e.g. personal information, IP address) in accordance with their data usage guidelines and use them for business purposes.
The Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf has no influence on data collection and its further use by social networks. For example, there is no information on the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored, the extent to which the networks comply with existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links are made with the data, or to whom the data is passed on.


This website uses plugins of the Vimeo video portal. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Whenever you visit one of our pages featuring Vimeo videos, a connection with the servers of Vimeo is established. In conjunction with this, the Vimeo server receives information about which of our sites you have visited. Vimeo also receives your IP address. However, we have set up Vimeo in such a way that Vimeo cannot track your user activities and does not place any cookies. We use Vimeo to make our online presentation attractive for you. This is a legitimate interest on our part pursuant to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. et seq. GDPR.  If a respective declaration of consent was requested (e.g. concerning the storage of cookies), processing shall occur exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR; the given consent may be revoked at any time.
