The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection laws and this data protection declaration.
In general, you may visit our website without providing personal information. Any personal data (e.g., name, address, or e-mail address) collected via our pages is always voluntarily provided by users. Some of this data is occasionally passed on to third parties in accordance with this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from being access by third parties.
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
This data cannot be connected to specific persons, nor is it merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us, the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from 'http://' to 'https://' and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
If you send us inquiries via email or contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided and your IP address, will be processed and stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
If you send a text message to our LED panel with your mobile phone, the message will appear for one minute on the physical panel in the foyer of the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen as well as on our website. The messages are stored anonymously on a local computer in the LED panel. The messages are stored for our archive as well as possible further uses (e.g., in the Kunst Halle’s annual report).
This website uses Friendly Captcha in certain cases to prevent automatic programs/bots from using text fields. This increases the security of our website and prevents users from receiving spam. As a DSGVO-compliant alternative to Google's reCAPTCHA, Friendly Captcha does not set or read any cookies on users' end devices. IP addresses are only stored in one-way encrypted form and do not allow us and Friendly Captcha to draw any conclusions about an individual person.
On the website, users have the option of subscribing to our newsletter. By subscribing, you agree to permit us to use your personal data to send you the newsletter. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information.
The registration for our newsletter is carried out in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's email addresses.
Newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove that the registration process has been carried out in compliance with legal requirements. Data stored includes the registration itself and confirmation time.
The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored in Mailjet's secure data centers (Google Cloud Platform) in Frankfurt (Germany) and Saint-Ghislain (Belgium), which are located exclusively within the European Union. Mailjet uses this information to send and evaluate newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, Mailjet may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g., for the technical optimization of email and presentation of newsletters, or for economic purposes, such as determining which countries the recipients reside in. However, Mailjet does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them on its own behalf or to pass it on to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, i.e., a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the Mailjet server when the newsletter is opened. In the course of this retrieval, technical information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. We use this information to enhance our services by analyzing technical data, the target groups, their access patterns, their reading behavior, as well as their access patterns, which may be determined through their IP addresses.
Statistical surveys also determine whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor Mailjet’s to surveil individual users. Rather, the analyses help us to obtain an overall view of the opened and clicked newsletters and, if necessary, to adapt their content.
You will find an unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter.
In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), applicable as of 25 May 2018, we inform you that the consent to the sending of email addresses is based on article 6 (1) lit. a, 7 DSGVO, as well as Sec. 7 (2) no. 3 or (3) UWG. The use of the email service provider Mailjet, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses, as well as the logging of the registration process are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We wish to maintain a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of our users.
This website uses features of the web analytics service Matomo (free open source software) and offers a privacy-friendly, DSGVO-compliant alternative to Google Analytics. Unlike Google Analytics, which uses their data for its advertising platform, Matomo users' data is not used for marketing or other purposes. Matomo (InnoCraft) is based at 7 Waterloo Quay, PO625, 6140 Wellington, New Zealand.

The OpenStreetMap Site Switzerland is operated by the Swiss OpenStreetMap Association at Heitersbergstrasse 1, 8962 Bergdietikon, Switzerland.
We may adapt this data protection declaration at any time without prior notice. The current version published on our website shall apply.
