You may encounter the eKultur systems as a user either because you are looking for a web service on eKultur as a private person, or because you work in a museum and use eKultur as a tool. Some of the functions and services in eKultur require you (or alternatively the museum you work at) to register some information about yourself. The information falls into three categories:
- Information about persons who visit the web services in eKultur without logging in – hereinafter private persons
- Information about private persons who create user accounts on the web services DigitaltMuseum, KulturNav and Minner – hereinafter private users
- Data regarding museum staff who create user accounts as part of their professional work – hereinafter professional users
The ICOM (International Council of Museums) defines a museum as follows:
The museums collect and manage large quantities of personal data as part of their social mission. Much of this data is in eKultur, both internally on Primus databases and – unless there are any restrictions on publishing the information – online in the other parts of the system. The last category of personal data in eKultur comprises these types of data about persons related to the collections and who are documented in the systems – hereinafter named persons.
The following states which personal data are processed, how they are collected, who the data controller is and who the data processor is.
