The data thus collected, which is helpful or necessary for communication, usually includes email address, first and last names as well as information on the organisation-specific function. Additional information such as your telephone number or supplementary personal, professional and organisation-specific data are optional and are not stored by us as standard - unless necessary for processing your request or expressly requested by you. Your data will not be passed on to third parties or used commercially.

4. purpose of the data processing

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy and we act according to the principle of data economy. This means that we will only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this,
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or a jointly agreed project and communication objective with you,
  • the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,
  • the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
  • In the context of press and public relations work, it may be useful for the respective responsible persons of the three cities to give out email addresses or telephone numbers of programme partners to the press and media. However, this only happens if it can be assumed that this is in the interest of the partner. Here, too, the principle of data minimisation applies to us.

5. deletion or blocking of data

In the sense of active networking of various actors as well as the long-term, periodic character of the festival, deletion will only take place upon explicit request. If you do not wish to participate any further, your personal data will therefore only be stored for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions. If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Such a revocation will affect the permissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

6.3.1 Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache, a buffer used to display texts and fonts quickly and correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at and in Google's privacy policy:

Through this integration, YouTube receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a YouTube profile or are not currently logged into YouTube.
