We gather, process and use your personal data only with your consent, or in connection with your commission or order for the purposes agreed with you, or if any other legal basis applies in keeping with the GDPR; the only exception to this is use for statistical purposes, provided that the data has been anonymized.

All visits to our website are recorded in server log files. This access data is transferred to us via your browser.

The access data contains the following information: the date and time of the visit, the name of the viewed page, the IP address, the URL from which you have accessed our site, the transferred data volume as well as information on your browser (provider and version). We require this information to optimize the services offered by our website, to correct possible problems and to protect the website against attacks such as DDoS attacks.

Our website https://www.leopoldmuseum.orgcontains social media plug-ins of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and YouTube. These plug-ins are indicated by a small logo of the provider. As soon as you visit a page of our website showing such a logo, an automatic connection is established with the server of the respective social media provider. In this way, the social media service gains information as to which pages are visited by you.

We cannot influence which type of data is thus transferred to the respective provider. The transfer of data occurs even if you do not click on a plug-in symbol. In case you are logged in to your account with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ or YouTube while visiting our website, the plug-in is able to connect to your account. Should you “like” something or comment using the plug-in, the plug-in will transfer this information to the social media provider and link it with your account with this provider. If you do not agree to this, you must log out of your social media account before clicking on the plug-in or install an add-on blocking social media plug-ins on your terminal device.

Please note that social media plug-ins are also subject to the data privacy statements of the respective provider (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and YouTube), for the content of which we assume no liability.
