Data Protection Statement
(Rev. Dec 2022)
The following data protection statement governs the use of the deutsches-theater.de website (referred to hereinafter as “website”).
Data protection is very important to us. Below, we explain how we will process your personal data and what rights you have in this regard.
Your personal data is collected and processed in conformance with the applicable data protection regulations, particularly the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We collect and process your personal data for the following purposes: acting as agent for event tickets, reservation, sale and delivery of tickets, information on events as well as the sale and delivery of vouchers. We wish to constantly improve our service and to make the website more appealing to you. Additionally, we wish to adapt the website to suit your demands and needs.
1. Responsible authority
The authority responsible for collecting, processing and utilizing your personal data within the meaning of GDPR Art. 4 (7) is:
Deutsches Theater München Betriebs-GmbH
Represented by the managing director
If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data as described in these data protection provisions as a whole or for individual actions, you may address your objection to the responsible authority named above.
You can save and print out this data protection statement at any time.
2. General use of the website
The hosting services we use are for providing the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance services we use for the purpose of operating the website.
In doing so we or our hosting provider process master data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, metadata and communication data of customers, interested persons and visitors to this online content on the basis of our justified interests in efficiently and securely providing this online content in accordance with GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f) in conjunction with GDPR Art. 28.
2.2. Access data
We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behaviour and your interaction with us, and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and utilize data about each access to our online content (so-called server log files). The access data include:
- Name and URL of accessed file
- Access time and date
- Amount of data transferred
- Report of successful access (HTTP response code)
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
- Websites which the user’s system accesses via our website
- User’s Internet service provider
- IP address of querying provider
We use such log data without matching them to your identity or creating other profiles for statistical analysis for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing our online content, but also for anonymously tracking of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the scope and type of use of our website and services as well as for billing purposes in order to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. Based on this information we can provide personalized and location-based content and can analyse data traffic, search for and correct errors and improve our services.
This is also our justified interest according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f).
We reserve the right to subsequently examine the log data if there is a reasonable suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indicators. We store IP addresses for a limited period of time in the log files if this is necessary for security purposes or needed in order to provide or bill for a service, for instance when you use one of our services. After the ordering process is cancelled or after payment is received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer needed for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of criminal activity in connection with the use of our website. Addtionally, we store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. on registration, login, clicking links, etc.).
We use so-called session cookies in order to optimize our online content. A session cookie is a small text file sent by the respective servers and temporarily stored on your hard drive when visiting a website. This file itself contains a so-called session ID which can be used to match various queries by your browser to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. For instance, they allow you to use the shopping cart function across multiple pages.
We also use persistent cookies to a small extent (likewise small text files that are stored on your device); these remain on your device, allowing us to recognize your browser on your next visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and are automatically deleted after a preset time. They can persist between one month and up to ten years. This allows us to present our content to you in a more user-friendly, efficient and secure manner and, for instance, to display information on the site specifically tailored to your interests.
Our justified interest in using the cookies according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f) lies in making our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure.
The following data and information may be stored in the cookies we use:
- Login information
- Language settings
- Search terms entered
- Information about the number of accesses to our website and use of individual functions on our Internet presence
When the cookie is activated, an identifying number is assigned to it and no match is made between your personal data and this identifying number. Your name, IP address and similar data that would allow the cookie to be matched to you are not stored in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we receive only pseudonymized information, for instance about which pages of our shop were visited, which products were viewed etc.
You can set your browser to notify you in advance about cookies being set and to allow you to decide in the specific case whether to block the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or to completely prevent cookies. This may limit the functionality of the website.
2.4. E-mail contact
When you contact us (e.g. using a contact form or via e-mail), we store your information to process the inquiry and in case there are follow-up questions.
This is also where our justified interest lies according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f) .
We store and use additional personal data only if you give consent or if this is legally permitted without special consent.
2.5. Matomo web analytics
We process data on our website using the Matomo web analytics software (www.matomo.org), a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (“Matomo”), on the basis of our justified interest in statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f).
The data collected using the Matomo technology (including your pseudonymized IP address) are processed exclusively on our servers and are not shared with third parties. The data can be used to create and analyze pseudonymized user profiles for the aforementioned purpose. Cookies may be used for this purpose. The information in the pseudonymous user profile generated by the cookie is not used to personally identify the visitor to this website and is not merged with personal data via the pseudonym carrier.
If you do not consent to the storage and analysis of these data from your visit, you can object to the storage and use at any time by clicking below.
In this case a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo collects no session data whatsoever. Please note that deleting all your cookies will also result in deletion of the opt-out cookie and you may have to reactivate it if needed.
2.6. Length of storage
Unless specifically indicated, we store your personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the intended purposes.
3. Processing inventory data
Furthermore, we process the inventory data described below.
3.1. Execution of orders
We process your master data, communication data, and payment data for the execution of your order so that we can confirm receipt of your order, communicate with you and execute the order. We take execution of the order to mean performing reservations, bookings and payments and in case of postal mail sending the tickets to the named delivery address, if necessary performing order cancellations and transacting refunds, and providing information about an event’s cancellation/rescheduling or program changes via e-mail, telephone or text message.
The legal basis for this data processing is GDPR Art. 6 (1) (b).
3.2. Customer account
In order to be able to offer you a convenient shopping experience in our online shop, you can register on our website by entering your personal data. Then you will not have to reenter your data for every order in the future.
For new registrations we collect master data (e.g. name, address), communication data (e.g. e-mail address), payment data (bank account) and access data (username and password).
In order to ensure your proper registration and prevent unauthorized registrations by third parties, you will receive an activation link via e-mail after registering in order to activate your account. Only after successful registration do we permanently store the data you provide in our system.
Once you have created a customer account you can have us delete it at any time without incurring other costs than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form to the contact information named in item 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient. We will then delete your stored personal data unless we still have to store these data in order to execute orders or on the basis of legal storage requirements.
The legal basis for this data processing is GDPR Art. 6 (1) (a), (b), and (f). Our interests in the data processing particularly include initiating, concluding and fulfilling contracts and simplifying your ordering process.
We use the so-called double opt-in method in order to be able to send you our newsletter. Only if you have previously expressly confirmed that you wish to receive the newsletter will we send you an activation e-mail and request that you confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on one of the links contained in the e-mail message.
You can unsubscribe at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form to the contact information named in item 1 (e.g., e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient. Naturally you will also find an unsubscribe link in each newsletter.
The legal basis for this data processing is GDPR Art. 6 (1) (a).
3.4. Customer service
If you sell tickets or gift certificates, we also process your personal data for customer service purposes in addition to settling the order. We take customer service to mean marketing activities that provide important information and therefore benefits to you, such as sending information about the event program we distribute, exclusive introductory offers, and new features on the website.
Otherwise we process your personal data for customer service purposes only if you have given your consent. Regardless of the newsletter, we regularly send you product recommendations by e-mail. In this way we provide you with information about products we offer that might be of interest to you on the basis of your recent purchases. We strictly follow the legal requirements when doing this. You can object to it at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form to the contact information named in item 1 (e.g., e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient. Naturally you will also find an unsubscribe link in each e-mail message.
The legal basis for this data processing is GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f). Our interests in the data processing particularly include initiating, concluding, and fulfilling contracts, and direct advertising.
3.5. Length of storage
Unless specifically indicated, we store your personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the intended purposes, or as long as required by law.

5. Data security
We take maximum efforts for the security of your data as part of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.
We transmit your personal data in encrypted form. We use the secure transmission method “SSL Secure Socket Layer with 256-bit encryption” to send customer and credit card data. You can identify this from the fact that an “s” is added to the http:// address component: https://. The SSL connection used by us was certified by COMODO CA Limited with regard to security and confidentiality.
This encryption method is the recognized standard that is also used by Internet banks for data transactions.
To secure your data we maintain technical and organizational security measures conforming to GDPR Art. 32, which we continuously keep up to the state of the art.
We do not guarantee, however, that our content is available at specific times; disruptions, interruptions, and outages cannot be precluded. The servers we use are backed up regularly and carefully.
6. Online presence in social media
We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms so that we can communicate with customers, potential customers, and users who are active there and inform them of our services there.
We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks to users because, e.g. the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles may in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users’ interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users according to Art. 6 Par. 1 Letter f GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for a consent to the above-mentioned data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 Letter a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.

7. Integration of videos from the provider Vimeo
We use the provider Vimeo for integration of videos, among others. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, whose main office is at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
We use plug-ins from the vendor Vimeo on some of our webpages. When you access the webpages of our Internet presence containing such a plug-in, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plug-in is displayed. This notifies the Vimeo server which of our webpages you visited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo member, Vimeo matches this information to your personal user account. When using the plug-in, for instance clicking the start button of a video, this information is also matched to your user account. You can prevent such matching by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies.
More information on data processing and data protection notes from Vimeo are available at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
8. Sharing data with third parties, no data transmission to non-EU countries
We fundamentally use your personal data only within our company.
To provide our services we transmit your data to third parties only insofar as this serves the purpose of fulfilling contracts (such as logistics providers).
The legal basis for the data transmission is GDPR Art. 6 (1) (b).
In the event we outsource certain elements of data processing (“commissioned processing”), we contractually require commissioned processors to use personal data only in conformance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure that the rights of data subjects are protected.
No data transfer occurs or is planned to entities or individuals outside the EU, other than the cases named in item 7 of this statement.
