As a rule, the use of our website is possible without entering any personal data. Provided that personal data (for example name, address or email addresses) is ascertained, this is effected, wherever possible, on a voluntary basis. The data will not be shared with third parties without your express consent. We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission on the Internet (for example email correspondence) may have security flaws.
A flawless protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. The utilization of the contact details published under the imprint obligation (“Impressumspflicht”) by third parties for the purpose of transmitting not explicitly requested advertising and information is herewith explicitly prohibited. The operators of this site explicitly reserve the right to implement legal measures in the event of unsolicited transmission of advertising information, for example through spam mails.
Collection of Data
In principle, you can use our website without disclosing your personal data. When you access our site, data is stored on our servers for security purposes such as the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, the pages you visit on our site, and your IP address. This data would possibly allow identification, however, we do not use any personal data in this respect. The data may be used for statistical evaluation purposes, but the individual user remains anonymous. In case data is disclosed to external service providers, we have ensured through technical and organisational measures that all applicable data protection regulations are complied with.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
Personal data is only collected if provided by you, e.g. by registering with us, by filling in forms or sending e-mails in the context of ordering our services or of enquiries.
The database and its contents remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties by us or any persons acting on our behalf unless we have obtained your consent or an official directive.
When you visit our website, data relating to each access to the page content is collected (so-called server log files). This includes the name of the website accessed, the file, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, a notification that access was successful, the browser type used including a version description, the operating system of the visitor, the site previously visited (so-called referrer URL) and the requesting provider.
In accordance with the relevant legal regulations, this protocol data is collected exclusively for statistical evaluation with regard to operational purposes, for security purposes and for the optimization of our online services without any classification of the identity of the visitor of the website and in particular without any further profiling.
However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the protocol data if specific evidence gives rise to the reasonable suspicion of illegal use.
The IP address(es) of the website visitors are stored by the hosting provider of our website in the log files for a limited period of time, whereby this is done anonymously, so that the data cannot be subsequently individualised.
When using this general data and information, Galerie Christian Lethert does not draw conclusions regarding the person concerned. Instead, this information is necessary in order to (1) correctly transmit our website contents, (2) to optimise the content of our website and the respective advertising, (3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the case of cyber attacks. Galerie Christian Lethert evaluates the anonymously collected data and information for statistical purposes and furthermore for purposes of increasing data protection and security within our company and ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection of the personal data processed by us. The anonymous server log files are stored separately from any other personal data submitted by the person concerned.
We have concluded an agreement with our hoster, Kontent GmbH, to ensure that all transmitted data (even if it does not comprise personal data) is processed in compliance with the GDPR.
The person concerned can prevent the storage of cookies by our website at any time by means of the respective setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently prohibit the storage of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible with all current Internet browsers.

This website uses functions by the web analysis service “Google Analytics”. This service is offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files stored on your computer to help analyse how you use our website. The information generated by the cookies regarding your use of our website will, as a rule, be transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. The transmission of Analytics information is carried out by the domain stats.doubleclick.net., among others.
We have activated the IP anonymisation option for Google Analytics on this website. Thus, Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in any other contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the page visitors, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website owner with further services with regard to website use and Internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google analytics will not be combined with other Google data. Site visitors can prevent cookies from being stored using the respective setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out to visitors that, in this case, they may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
Furthermore, the visitors of the website can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and from their use of the website (including their IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We have entered into an agreement with Google regarding the processing of data in order to ensure that all transmitted data (even if it is not personal) will be processed in compliance with the GDPR. In addition, the new “data processing amendment” was activated in Google Analytics, which was introduced for the implementation of the GDPR.
