Data protection statement

Data protection

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal data protection requirements and, specifically, this data protection statement.

Generally speaking, you can use our website without providing any personal information. Insofar as personal information (name, address or email addresses) is gathered on our site, it is always done so with your consent. Data are not shared with third parties without your explicit consent.

We would like to point out that data communication on the Internet (e.g. communication via email) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. An absolute and complete protection of data against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Disclosure, deletion, blocking

You always have the right to free information about your stored personal data, including its origin, the recipients of the information and the purpose of data processing. You also have the right to correct, block or delete that data. You may contact us at any time regarding these and other questions related to the topic of personal data at the address listed in the Legal notice section.

Contact form

If you contact us with queries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact information provided by you there, will be saved by us so that we may respond to your query and any other follow-up questions. We will not share the data without your consent and once the communication has come to an end, we will delete the data.


Friends of the Museum newsletter - Mailchimp

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, you will be requested to provide an email address and your name.

The email newsletter (invitations to events and information about the Friends of the Museum association and the Museum of Islamic Art) is completely voluntary and without any obligation. The newsletter is dispatched via Mailchimp. (Privacy Policy, Terms of Use)

We use your details solely for the dispatch of our newsletter and we will not share them with third parties. You can rescind your consent to store data, the email address and their use for the dispatch of the newsletter at any time, for example via the “Unsubscribe from this list” link in the newsletter or, independent of that, by sending us an email to with “Newsletter cancellation” in the subject line.

Museum of Islamic Art newsletter - Kulturkurier

On our website users are afforded the option to subscribe to the newsletter, or to set up multiple subscriptions. The newsletter system we use is, which is part of data kulturlink ag, a Berlin-based company. To ensure legal requirements and data protection guidelines are complied with, a so-called double opt-in procedure is employed. For example, a potential recipient first receives an email with a confirmation link. Only after confirmation has been made will the address be added to the distribution list. At any time, you may rescind your consent for the storing of data or for the use of your address for distribution purposes by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each newsletter. You will find more information about this at:

The entry screen used to subscribe to the newsletter determines which personal data is passed on to the company responsible for the fulfillment of the newsletter. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the particular person signing up for the newsletter, as well as the date and time of the registration. Gathering this data is essential so that (potential) abuse of the email address of the person in question may be retraced subsequently. Therefore, this practice serves to legally safeguard those tasked with the fulfillment of the newsletter.

The personal data gathered in the newsletter subscription process are used solely for the distribution of our newsletter. In addition, newsletter subscribers may be contacted via email if it is deemed necessary for the operation of the newsletter service, or if registration is required. Such may be the case in situations involving changes to the newsletter offer, or when modifying the technical conditions. The personal data gathered as part of the newsletter service are not shared with third parties. To track newsletter access and weblink click rates, we employ tracking codes in the newsletter (but not in the system emails related to subscribing to or unsubscribing from the newsletter). In such cases, tracking is carried out using pseudonymized storage, in which all personal data (e.g. email addresses) are replaced with a code number (pseudonym). That way, we avoid saving any personal data alongside usage data, such as newsletter access or weblink clicks. Moreover, we ensure that a subsequent merging of that data cannot take place. If you, as a newsletter subscriber, would like to reject this pseudonymized tracking, you may remove yourself from list via the opt-out link at the bottom of each newsletter.
