Your data

You can visit our website without giving any personal information. We will process your personal data only if you contact us, subscribe to the newsletter or if this is required for the performance or execution of a contract. Depending on the kind of inquiry, we will process data such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and other details you have voluntarily provided if these are required for the processing of your request.

We use your data only for the purpose for which you have transmitted these data to us, i.e. to answer your questions, to provide information about us, our exhibitions and projects as well as about works of art and to prepare, fulfil or perform contracts.

We guarantee that we will not disclose your data for commercial purposes. Your data will only be transmitted to third parties for non-commercial purposes if we are subject to a legal obligation, you have given your consent to the transmission or if this is required for the preparation, fulfilment or performance of a contract made with you.


Your Rights

You have the right to obtain access to the stored personal data concerning you, their source and the recipients and the purpose of the data processing at any time and free of charge. You have a right to erasure or blocking of data if you desire that we no longer store your data and if processing is not required and a right to rectification of your personal data if we have stored them inaccurately. You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your data at any time without giving reasons.

Newsletter and information about MailChimp

Our newsletter will inform you about us as well as our exhibitions and projects. If you subscribe to our newsletter we will store only your email address and, if you voluntarily provide them, also first and family name and will use them with your consent exclusively for sending the newsletter.

We use the services of the provider MailChimp, an offer by The Rocket Science Group, LLC having its seat in the USA, to send newsletters. In legal terms, the use of MailChimp is data processing in a third country.

We have decided to commission MailChimp because The Rocket Science Group, LLC has a valid EU-Privacy-Shield certification and thus assures to take measures and use standards which raise the level of data protection of personal data stored in the USA to a level corresponding to EU standards. We have chosen the settings which are most privacy friendly to send our newsletters via MailChimp and have concluded a processor agreement with MailChimp to ensure protection of your data.

The certification of The Rocket Science Group, LLC is accessible on the website www.privacyshield.org. MailChimp’s privacy policy is available on Datenschutzerklärung von MailChimp.

You may at any time withdraw your consent to the storage of your personal data, the email address and first and family names, if applicable, as well as to their use for sending the newsletter. For this purpose, please send a short email to info@galeriefuchs.de. Moreover, each newsletter contains a link to unsubscribe further information.
