Whenever you surf the Internet, you transmit data to the provider of the page accessed via your browser. This is also the case when you visit the pages of the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office.

In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged, however, the person responsible does not draw any conclusions about your person.

This data is only needed to properly display the contents of our website, to optimize the content for you and to support prosecutions in case of hacker attacks.

When personal data (such as name, address, e-mail address, etc.) are collected on this website, this is done in voluntary agreement with you and in your knowledge.

A third party provider (webgo GmbH, Wandsbeker Zollstr. 95, 22041 Hamburg, Germany) hosts and presents the website. This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in the context of a balance of interests. All data collected as part of the use of the website are processed on its servers on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions. We have concluded a corresponding order processing agreement pursuant to Article 28 GDPR with the hosting provider listed above (webgo GmbH).

The website is maintained on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions via a design agency (Krieger des Lichts GmbH, Burgschmietstrasse 10, 90419 Nuremberg), with whom an agreement was also concluded pursuant to Article 28 GDPR.

The data is processed in Germany or within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

Use of Cookies

The City of Nuremberg uses cookies. However, all pages can also be accessed without the user’s permission to store cookies without restriction. In the case of tele-services that use obligatory cookies, special attention is drawn to this fact on the respective pages.

Use of the Elfsight Instagram feed plugin

Functions of the Instagram service are integrated on our webpages. These functions are provided by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States.

The plugin Elfsight Instagram Feed CC loads the pictures directly from Instagram. All other data is collected and cached by the server. If you load the content as a visitor to our site, it is loaded from the Elfsight cache for the Instagram feed. No personal information is collected for this data request.

External Content

Third party content (for example YouTube videos or videos of other providers, Flipsnack and similar) may also be contained on our website. The providers of this content commonly store cookies on the user’s computer. You can prevent this by means of appropriate browser settings, which, however, may mean that this content is not displayed correctly.

In addition, many (third party) providers store the IP address of the users in order to send the content to the user’s browser. Unfortunately, we have no influence on the use of the IP address by the (third party) provider.

Anonymous data evaluation of site visits

On the web pages of the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office, data are processed using the web analysis service software Matomo (formerly Piwik) based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes according to Article 6 (1) GDPR. From this data, anonymised usage profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies may be used for this. Cookies are small text files stored locally in the cache of the site visitor’s Internet browser. These cookies enable, among other things, recognition of the Internet browser. The collected data (including your anonymised IP address) are processed on our servers; data is not transferred to third parties (e.g. to the manufacturer of Matomo). The information generated by the cookie in the anonymous user profile is not used to personally identify visitors to this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can subsequently object to the processing at any time with a mouse click (Section 13 (1) and Section 15 (3) TMG). In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo will not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that Matomo’s opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you will have to reactivate it.

Use of Links

On the online pages of the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office, cross-references (so-called “links”) are made to external Internet sites. These external sites are located on their own domains and external servers and their content is the responsibility of the respective operators.

Via cross-references, so-called links, the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office enables the use of external content in accordance with Section 7 of the Telemedia Act. The City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office is not responsible for this “external” content, but the respective operator of the site. Accessing the linked domain, i.e. the transmission of the information published there is not initiated by the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office. Likewise, no content is selected or changed by the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office. The City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office has no influence on who actually accesses the linked external Internet sites.

The selected access and linking method does not generate an automatic temporary caching of this “external information” so this does not give rise to any responsibility of the City of Nuremberg’s 2025 European Capital of Culture Bid Office.

Transmission of data via e-mail

When you send an e-mail to the City of Nuremberg’s European Capital of Culture 2025 Bid Office and its facilities, the data and content associated with the e-mail will be used solely for correspondence with you.

Alternatively, you can send us encrypted messages using an electronic contact form, which you will find on the relevant websites of the City of Nuremberg. We strongly recommend that you use it for the confidentiality, liability, intactness and integrity of your data.  


If you have given us consent to process your personal data to send a newsletter, this data processing is based on this consent. This also applies to consent given to us prior to the validity of the GDPR, i.e. before 25 May 2018. The legal basis for consent-based data processing is Article 6 (1) GDPR.

Consent is always voluntary, an e-mail address is required for newsletter delivery; further information serves only for personal salutations. If the processing of personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. The revocation is declared by cancelling the respective newsletter. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation on the basis of the consent remains unaffected by your revocation.

Contact forms

Each department/facility has an electronic contact form for secure and encrypted transmission through the Internet. E-mail addresses are generally not published in clear text.

We collect your sender and contact data for this purpose. For your communication with us it is necessary that we process the above-mentioned personal data. Without them, we cannot respond to your contact request. The legal basis for consent-based data processing is Article 6 (1) GDPR. We will not pass on the e-mail address to third parties without legal basis or your consent. The data will be retained until the communication is completed and then deleted unless the communication results in a separate administrative procedure (e.g. an application).
