Newsletter
On the website of Walter Storms Galerie GmbH you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our gallery’s newsletter.
The purpose is to inform you about our gallery activities, exhibitions, offers, trade fair participations and events.
Your data will be used exclusively to send you the subscribed newsletter by e-mail. If necessary, your name will be given in order to address you personally in the newsletter and to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.
To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double-opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email and the receipt of the response requested herewith. No further data is collected. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.
The legal basis is Art. 6 I a DSGVO. On the basis of your expressly given consent, we will send you our newsletter or comparable information regularly by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time with effect for the future.

For the newsletter dispatch, we use the provider Sendinblue GmbH. To protect your data, we have concluded an order processing agreement with sendinblue for the sending of our newsletter. This means that sendinblue uses the given information for sending and evaluating the newsletter on our behalf. There will be no contact from sendinblue to you. We trust in the reliability of sendinblue, their IT and data security. According to sendinblue, “Our dispatch servers are located in Germany – stored user data is therefore covered by European and German data protection law – and we also have an internal data protection officer.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities. Based on the use of the website and the internet, further related services shall then be provided.

Legal basis of processing

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete, absolute protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
