Privacy policy

Technical implementation
The web server of the Bavarian Palace Department is operated by the Rechenzentrum Süd at the Bayerischen Landesamt für Statistik und Datenverarbeitung (Bavarian State Office for Statistics and Data Processing).

Bayerische Landesamt für Statistik und Datenverarbeitung
St.-Martin-Straße 47, 81541 München

When you call up this or other Internet sites, you communicate data to the web server via your Internet browser. The following data are recorded during an active connection for communication between your Internet browser and the web server of the Bavarian Palace Department:

  • Date and time of access
  • Name of the file requested
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the computer requesting the file
  • Quantity of data requested.

For reasons of technical security, in particular for countering attempted hacking on the web server, these data are stored by us. After seven days at the latest, the data are rendered anonymous by abbreviation of the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to link them with individual users. The data are processed solely for this purpose and in anonymous form for statistical purposes; no comparison is made with other existing data and neither the information nor extracts from it are passed to third parties.

When you access this Internet site, cookies (small files) with a maximum validity of one year are stored on your hard disk. They serve solely to identify you during your visit to the Internet pages of the Bavarian Palace Department. Most browsers are set up to accept the use of cookies, but you can set your Internet browser to cancel this function during the current session or on a permanent basis.

Active components
Active components such as Javascript, Java applets or ActiveX controls may be used in the information provided by the Bavarian Palace Department. You can set your Internet browser to cancel this function.

Evaluation of user behaviour (web tracking systems)
Programmes for evaluating user behaviour are only used by us in anonymous form. For this purpose your IP address is first rendered anonymous and only then evaluated by us or sent for evaluation to third parties. You can set your browser to cancel this function.

Collection of further data
Personal or business data (e.g. name, addresses, e-mail addresses) can be entered on the Bavarian Palace Department’s site. Any personal information that we receive is used only for sending requested publications or information and is not passed on to third parties. The use of the services is entirely voluntary. The data are deleted at the latest one year after the order.

The e-mail addresses for the mailing of the newsletter are stored and used only for sending the newsletter. The newsletter can be cancelled at any time and your e-mail address will then be immediately deleted.

Electronic post (e-mail)
Information which you send unencrypted by electronic post (e-mail) to the Bavarian Palace Department may be read en route by third parties. The Bavarian Palace Department cannot usually check your identity and does not know whose e-mail address it is. Legally secure communication by simple e-mail is thus not guaranteed. Like many e-mail servers, the Bavarian Palace Department uses filters to block unwanted advertising (“spam filters”) which in isolated cases also wrongly identify normal e-mails as unwanted advertising and delete them. We always automatically delete e-mails with malicious programmes (“viruses”).

If you want to send us an e-mail with confidential content, we recommend that you encrypt it and sign it to prevent it from being seen by unauthorized persons and falsified en route, or that you use the conventional postal services.

PGP-encrypted e-mails can be sent to the following e-mail address of the Bavarian Palace Department: The requisite PGP public key can be called up from the central PGP key server of the Bavarian authority net at Information about the encrypting software “GpG4Win”, which was developed by the Federal Office for Information Security and is available as a free download, can be obtained from the website The brochure on this site describes in greater detail how to set up PGP in order to communicate with the Bavarian Palace Department.

Please also inform us whether and by what means the Bavarian Palace Department can reply to you with an encrypted e-mail and whether – should this not be possible – you would accept an unencrypted e-mail. If you are unable to receive encrypted e-mails, please give us your postal address for a reply to your confidential communication.
