Privacy Policy


In this privacy statement, we would like to inform you about how we process your personal data. We will explain why we collect information about you, how we use this information, and how we see to that your privacy is respected.

“Personal data” refers to data and assessments that can be linked to an identifiable individual. This might for example be someone’s name and contact details or information about their interests.

The use of personal data must comply with the Personal Data Act. As the designated data controller, Kunsthall Stavanger will ensure that we use your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the law.

What type of personal data do we have about you?

Depending on what type of information you provide us with, how you use our services, and how much you permit us to do, we have the following information about you:

● Personal information: Information you provide when you e.g. become a member of Kunsthall Stavanger, such as your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.

● Purchase information: Information we receive when you buy entry tickets or products from us, such as which items you have bought, your card number, and the payment method (e.g. Visa, Vipps).

● Communication: Information you provide when you contact us, e.g. in e-mail correspondence.

● Information about how you use our website: Information we receive when you use our website, such as what sort of device you have (e.g. mobile phone or computer), your IP address, which pages you visit, and which functions you use there.

What do we use your personal data for?

We use your personal data for the following purposes:

  1. Website services: We use the information to adapt our website to the technical equipment you use. We may also use the information to adapt our website content.
  2. Purchases: We use the information to transact your purchases of e.g. entry tickets and products.
  3. Membership: If you become a member of Kunsthall Stavanger, we use the information to e.g. store your contact details and purchase information.
  4. Customer service: In order to provide service and take care of you as a customer, we store the information that you provide and receive if you contact us via e.g. e-mail.
  5. Marketing: If you subscribe to our newsletter, we use your contact details (e.g. your e‑mail address) to send you information about our exhibitions and events.

The legal basis of purposes 1, 4, and 5 is our reasonable interest in being able to offer, develop, and market our services. The legal basis of purposes 2, 3, and 4 is to fulfil our contract with you.

With whom do we share your personal data?

We might share your personal data with companies that deliver technical and administrative services to us, such as IT suppliers. We have agreements in place with such parties in order to ensure your privacy.

In exceptional cases, we may provide information to e.g. public authorities if there is a suspicion of a crime.

If we use IT suppliers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), and for that reason transfer personal data out of the EEA, we see to that your privacy is contractually ensured.

We may also share anonymized information with our partners for the sake of e.g. market analysis and service development.

How long do we store your personal data?

Your personal data will be stored as long as necessary in order to carry out the services described in this declaration, until you request that we delete the information, or as long as the law orders us to store it, at which point the information will be deleted.
