The Kunsthaus Zürich uses personal data gathered when you visit our website strictly in accordance with the provisions of the law, in particular Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations issued by the Confederation (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP).
We attach great importance to protecting your personal data and your privacy. Personal data is treated in the strictest confidence and is neither passed on nor sold to third parties.
Together with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.
What data does the Kunsthaus Zürich store?
Personal data is collected only when you voluntarily supply it to us when placing an online order, creating a customer account, using a contact form or signing up for our newsletter. Personal data means information relating to individuals from which details of your personal, financial or factual circumstances can be inferred. It also includes address details, for example. It does not extend to information that is not linked directly to your identity.
How is data transferred?
When you make a payment, the Kunsthaus Zürich uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to process your personal data. All information transferred using this method is subjected to high-level encryption (minimum 128-bit, with commonly used browsers up to 256-bit) before it is sent to us. This ensures as far as possible that no unauthorized third party can access your data.
How is data used?
The Kunsthaus Zürich uses the data you supply to process and fulfil your online purchases. In this context the Kunsthaus Zürich will use the data to, among other things, notify you of the status of your order or contact you in the event of queries. If you have created a separate member or customer account, this will remain in existence until deactivated.
When you sign up for our newsletter, your e-mail address will be used solely for the Kunsthaus Zürich’s own advertising purposes and only until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time. The unsubscribe link can be found at the end of every newsletter.
Is data passed to third parties?
Your personal data is treated in the strictest confidence and is neither passed on nor sold to third parties unless this is necessary for processing payment transactions or dispatching your order. In this event, we have concluded agreements with the firms contracted to perform these services that ensure compliance with data protection legislation and the deletion without delay of data that is no longer needed.
The Kunsthaus Zürich website includes plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. These can be identified by the Facebook logo or the ‘Like’ button on our website. An overview of Facebook plugins can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US.
When you visit our website, the plugin creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. As a result, Facebook will be informed that you have visited our website using your IP address. By clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button while logged in to your Facebook account, you can link to content from our website on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate your visit to our website with your user account. Please note that as provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by Facebook. Further information can be found in Facebook’s Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
If you do not wish to allow Facebook to associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account.
Our website includes Instagram functions. These functions are offered by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA. When you are logged in to your Instagram account you can use the Instagram button to link the content of our pages to your Instagram profile. This allows Instagram to associate your visit to our website with your user account. Please note that as provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by Instagram.
We use Vimeo to integrate videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC which is headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
Every time you visit a page that offers one or more video clips a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server. This tells the Vimeo server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo member at the time, Vimeo will associate this information with your personal user account. When you use the plugin, for example by clicking the start button on a video, this information is also associated with your user account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your Vimeo account before using our website and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies.
You can set your browser to notify you when a site wishes to place cookies and either decide whether or not to accept them in each case or block cookies in specific cases or generally. Declining to accept cookies may limit the functionality of the Kunsthaus Zürich website.
