3. What data are processed?

When­ever you surf the Inter­net, you trans­mit data to the pro­vi­der of the page acces­sed via your brow­ser. This is also the case when you visit the pages of the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office.

Every access to our web­site and retrie­val of a file stored on the web­site are log­ged. Sto­rage ser­ves inter­nal sys­tem-rela­ted and sta­tis­ti­cal pur­po­ses. The fol­lo­wing are logged:

Name of the retrie­ved file, date and time of retrie­val, amount of data trans­fer­red, noti­ce of suc­cessful retrie­val, ope­ra­ting sys­tem used, brow­ser and brow­ser type, the web page from which you were redi­rec­ted, pages visi­ted and reques­t­ing domain.
In addi­ti­on, the IP addres­ses of the reques­t­ing com­pu­ters are log­ged, howe­ver, the per­son respon­si­ble does not draw any con­clu­si­ons about your person.
This data is only nee­ded to pro­per­ly dis­play the con­tents of our web­site, to opti­mi­ze the con­tent for you and to sup­port pro­se­cu­ti­ons in case of hacker attacks.
When per­so­nal data (such as name, address, e‑mail address, etc.) are coll­ec­ted on this web­site, this is done in vol­un­t­a­ry agree­ment with you and in your knowledge.
A third par­ty pro­vi­der (web­go GmbH, Wands­be­ker Zoll­str. 95, 22041 Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny) hosts and pres­ents the web­site. This ser­ves to safe­guard our pre­do­mi­nant­ly legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests in a cor­rect pre­sen­ta­ti­on of our offer in the con­text of a balan­ce of inte­rests. All data coll­ec­ted as part of the use of the web­site are pro­ces­sed on its ser­vers on our behalf and in accordance with our ins­truc­tions. We have con­cluded a cor­re­spon­ding order pro­ces­sing agree­ment pur­su­ant to Artic­le 28 GDPR with the hos­ting pro­vi­der lis­ted abo­ve (web­go GmbH).
The web­site is main­tai­ned on our behalf and in accordance with our ins­truc­tions via a design agen­cy (Krie­ger des Lichts GmbH, Burg­schmiet­stras­se 10, 90419 Nurem­berg), with whom an agree­ment was also con­cluded pur­su­ant to Artic­le 28 GDPR.
The data is pro­ces­sed in Ger­ma­ny or within a coun­try of the Euro­pean Uni­on or the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area.



The City of Nurem­berg uses coo­kies. Howe­ver, all pages can also be acces­sed wit­hout the user’s per­mis­si­on to store coo­kies wit­hout rest­ric­tion. In the case of tele-ser­vices that use obli­ga­to­ry coo­kies, spe­cial atten­ti­on is drawn to this fact on the respec­ti­ve pages.



We use an Insta­gram feed plug­in to dis­play social media con­tent on our web­site. As a result, our web­site sends requests to Instagram’s ser­vers for data to popu­la­te the feeds and dis­play images and vide­os. The­se requests make your IP address visi­ble to Insta­gram, which Insta­gram may use in accordance with its pri­va­cy poli­cy: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875




Third par­ty con­tent (for exam­p­le You­Tube vide­os or vide­os of other pro­vi­ders, Flips­nack and simi­lar) may also be con­tai­ned on our web­site. The pro­vi­ders of this con­tent com­mon­ly store coo­kies on the user’s com­pu­ter. You can pre­vent this by means of appro­pria­te brow­ser set­tings, which, howe­ver, may mean that this con­tent is not dis­play­ed correctly.

In addi­ti­on, many (third par­ty) pro­vi­ders store the IP address of the users in order to send the con­tent to the user’s brow­ser. Unfort­u­na­te­ly, we have no influence on the use of the IP address by the (third par­ty) provider.



Anony­mous data eva­lua­ti­on of site visits

User data are coll­ec­ted and stored in anony­mous form on the web­sites of the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office. For this pur­po­se, so-cal­led “coo­kies” may be used. Coo­kies are text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and that allow ana­ly­sis of your use of the web­site. Howe­ver, the­se coll­ect and save the data exclu­si­ve­ly in pseud­ony­mous form. They are not used to iden­ti­fy you per­so­nal­ly and are not mer­ged with data about the bea­rer of the pseud­onym. We use this infor­ma­ti­on to deter­mi­ne the appeal of our web­site and to con­ti­nu­al­ly impro­ve its con­tent. Through the use of coo­kies, web­go can pro­vi­de users of this web­site with more user-fri­end­ly ser­vices that would not be pos­si­ble wit­hout the set­ting of coo­kies. The per­son con­cer­ned can pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by set­ting the Inter­net brow­ser used accor­din­gly and ther­eby per­ma­nent­ly deny the use of coo­kies. Fur­ther­mo­re, coo­kies that are alre­a­dy set can be dele­ted at any time via an Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams. If the per­son con­cer­ned deac­ti­va­tes the set­ting of coo­kies in the Inter­net brow­ser used, all func­tions of our web­site may not be ful­ly usable.



On the online pages of the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office, cross-refe­ren­ces (so-cal­led “links”) are made to exter­nal Inter­net sites. The­se exter­nal sites are loca­ted on their own domains and exter­nal ser­vers and their con­tent is the respon­si­bi­li­ty of the respec­ti­ve ope­ra­tors. 

Via cross-refe­ren­ces, so-cal­led links, the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office enables the use of exter­nal con­tent in accordance with Sec­tion 7 of the Tele­me­dia Act. The City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office is not respon­si­ble for this “exter­nal” con­tent, but the respec­ti­ve ope­ra­tor of the site. Acces­sing the lin­ked domain, i.e. the trans­mis­si­on of the infor­ma­ti­on published the­re is not initia­ted by the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office. Like­wi­se, no con­tent is sel­ec­ted or chan­ged by the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office. The City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office has no influence on who actual­ly acces­ses the lin­ked exter­nal Inter­net sites. 

The sel­ec­ted access and lin­king method does not gene­ra­te an auto­ma­tic tem­po­ra­ry caching of this “exter­nal infor­ma­ti­on” so this does not give rise to any respon­si­bi­li­ty of the City of Nuremberg’s 2025 Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re Bid Office



Trans­mis­si­on of data via e‑mail

When you send an e‑mail to the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office and its faci­li­ties, the data and con­tent asso­cia­ted with the e‑mail will be used sole­ly for cor­re­spon­dence with you. E‑mails and the asso­cia­ted data and con­tent will be dele­ted as soon as they are no lon­ger requi­red to ful­fil the tasks under the respon­si­bi­li­ty of the City of Nurem­berg. 

When you send e‑mails, they are always unen­crypt­ed. Alter­na­tively, you can send us encrypt­ed mes­sa­ges using an elec­tro­nic cont­act form, which you will find on the web­sites of the City of Nurem­berg. We stron­gly recom­mend that you use it for the con­fi­den­tia­li­ty, lia­bi­li­ty, int­act­ness and inte­gri­ty of your data.




If you would like to recei­ve the news­let­ter offe­red on the web­site, we need an e‑mail address from you as well as infor­ma­ti­on that allows us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the e‑mail address pro­vi­ded and that you agree to recei­ve the news­let­ter. No fur­ther data is coll­ec­ted, or only on a vol­un­t­a­ry basis. We only use this data to send the reques­ted infor­ma­ti­on and do not pass it on to third par­ties. The data ente­red in the news­let­ter regis­tra­ti­on form will only be pro­ces­sed on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR). You can revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage of the data, the e‑mail address and their use for sen­ding the news­let­ter at any time, for exam­p­le via the “unsub­scri­be” link in the news­let­ter. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing done pri­or to this remains unaf­fec­ted by the revo­ca­ti­on. Your data stored by us for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter will be saved by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter and dele­ted once you unsub­scri­be from the newsletter.



This web­site uses Sen­din­blue to send news­let­ters. The pro­vi­der is Sen­din­blue GmbH, Köpe­ni­cker Stra­ße 126, 10787 Ber­lin, Ger­ma­ny. Sen­din­blue is a ser­vice that can be used to orga­ni­ze and ana­ly­ze the dis­patch of news­let­ters. The data you enter for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter is stored on the Sen­din­blue ser­vers in Ger­ma­ny. If you do not want Sen­din­blue to con­duct this ana­ly­sis, you must unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. We pro­vi­de a cor­re­spon­ding link in every news­let­ter mes­sa­ge for this pur­po­se. You can also unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter direct­ly on the website.



Sen­din­blue enables us to ana­ly­ze our news­let­ter cam­paigns. For exam­p­le, we can see whe­ther a news­let­ter mes­sa­ge has been ope­ned and what links may have been cli­cked on. This way we can deter­mi­ne what links are cli­cked on most often. We can also see whe­ther cer­tain pre­vious­ly defi­ned actions are taken after opening/clicking (con­ver­si­on rate). We can, for ins­tance, see whe­ther you have made a purcha­se after cli­cking on the newsletter.

Sen­din­blue also allows us to divi­de the news­let­ter reci­pi­ents into dif­fe­rent cate­go­ries (“clus­ters”). The news­let­ter reci­pi­ents can, for exam­p­le, be cate­go­ri­zed by age, gen­der, or place of resi­dence. In this way, the news­let­ters can be bet­ter adapt­ed to the respec­ti­ve tar­get groups.



Data pro­ces­sing is based on your con­sent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR). You can revo­ke this con­sent at any time. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing done pri­or to this remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.




Your data stored by us for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter will be saved by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter and, once you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter, dele­ted both from our ser­vers and from the Sen­din­blue ser­vers. This does not affect data that we have stored for other pur­po­ses (e.g. e‑mail addres­ses for the mem­ber area). For more infor­ma­ti­on, see the pri­va­cy poli­cy of Newsletter2Go at https://de.sendinblue.com/legal/privacypolicy/.


We have con­cluded a con­tract with Sen­din­blue in which we obli­ge Sen­din­blue to pro­tect our cus­to­mers’ data and not to pass them on to third par­ties. This con­tract can be view­ed at the fol­lo­wing link: https://www.sendinblue.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/AV_de_02_03_2020.pdf.



Each department/facility has an elec­tro­nic cont­act form for secu­re and encrypt­ed trans­mis­si­on through the Inter­net. E‑mail addres­ses are gene­ral­ly not published in clear text. 

We coll­ect your sen­der and cont­act data for this pur­po­se. For your com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with us it is neces­sa­ry that we pro­cess the abo­ve-men­tio­ned per­so­nal data. Wit­hout them, we can­not respond to your cont­act request. The legal basis for con­sent-based data pro­ces­sing is Artic­le 6 (1) GDPR. We will not pass on the e‑mail address to third par­ties wit­hout legal basis or your con­sent. The data will be retai­ned until the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is com­ple­ted and then dele­ted unless the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on results in a sepa­ra­te admi­nis­tra­ti­ve pro­ce­du­re (e.g. an application).



4. What social media or other ser­vices do you use??

As far as neces­sa­ry, the City of Nuremberg’s Euro­pean Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re 2025 Bid Office uses social net­works and inter­net com­mu­ni­ties that ser­ve as plat­forms for exchan­ging infor­ma­ti­on, opi­ni­ons, impres­si­ons and expe­ri­en­ces in each form of media. Curr­ent­ly the­se are Face­book, You­Tube, Insta­gram and Twitter.


Wit­hout cli­cking on an exter­nal link, no infor­ma­ti­on is trans­mit­ted to one of the­se pro­vi­ders. Only when you click on a link you will be redi­rec­ted to the respec­ti­ve site. The address of the cur­rent page is pas­sed on as a para­me­ter. We have no influence on whe­ther or how the pro­vi­ders use this infor­ma­ti­on for evaluation.


5. Dura­ti­on of sto­rage: How long is the data stored?

We only store and pro­cess your per­so­nal data as long as neces­sa­ry for the respec­ti­ve pur­po­se. In all other cases, we dele­te your per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on; only data that we need to retain in order to ful­fil legal obli­ga­ti­ons (such as tax or com­mer­cial reten­ti­on requi­re­ments) are excluded.

6. What rights do you have?

Accor­ding to the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on, you have the fol­lo­wing rights with regard to the data con­trol­ler: If your per­so­nal data are pro­ces­sed, you have the right to obtain infor­ma­ti­on about the data stored about you (Art. 15 GDPR). If inac­cu­ra­te per­so­nal data are pro­ces­sed, you are entit­led to rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on (Art. 16 GDPR). If the legal pre­re­qui­si­tes exist, you can request the dele­ti­on or limi­ta­ti­on of the pro­ces­sing and object to the pro­ces­sing (Art. 17, 18 and 21 GDPR). If you have con­sen­ted to the pro­ces­sing of data or a data pro­ces­sing con­tract exists and the data pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out using auto­ma­ted pro­ce­du­res, you are also entit­led to data por­ta­bi­li­ty (artic­le 20 GDPR). If you make use of your rights men­tio­ned abo­ve, the City of Nurem­berg will check whe­ther the legal requi­re­ments for this have been met.

Fur­ther­mo­re, you have the right to appeal to the Bava­ri­an Sta­te Com­mis­sio­ner for Data Protection
