Privacy Policy

The City of Munich, Department of Arts and Culture, Burgstraße 4, 80313 Munich, Germany, phone: +49 89 233 96939, kontakt (at), is the responsible operator of this website and is responsible for the processing of data in accordance with the data protection laws.

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously when you visit our website. For this reason, your personal data will be treated confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions and this privacy policy. This gives you information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of your personal data. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), in the Bavarian Data Protection Act (BayDSG) and in the Telemedia Act (TMG).


Collection of personal data

It is generally possible to use the website of the Oktoberfest Bomb Attack Documentation without providing personal data such as name, address, e-mail address or other personal data. An exception to this is IP addresses. Since these are regarded as a component of personal data, a connection to an individual person could be made.

It is not necessary to register to access the contents of the website. Insofar as personal data are collected on this site, this is always done on a voluntary basis, for example, when you leave a comment or contact us by e-mail. A comparison with other data sets or a transfer to third parties will not take place, either wholly or in part.



When you access this or other Internet sites, you transmit data to the web server via your Internet browser. The following data are recorded during an active connection for the purpose of communication between your Internet browser and our web server:

  • the date and time of the request
  • the name of the requested file
  • the website from which the file was requested
  • the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
  • the web browser and operating system used
  • the complete IP address of the computer requesting the file
  • the quantity of data transmitted.

All of this is exclusively information that cannot be connected to you as an individual. Since these data are generated when you access any other website on the Internet, this is therefore not a special function of our website. Information of this kind is collected exclusively in anonymous form and evaluated by us statistically. The IP address and timestamp of the website visits will be kept for six months.



If you contact us via e-mail, the information you provide will be saved for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions. Please note that electronic communication with the City of Munich is unencrypted. The personal data contained therein are less protected than if you sent them on a postcard, since they could be read and stored by unauthorised third parties. Please inform us by giving us your postal address if you wish to exchange correspondence via regular mail instead of e-mail correspondence.


Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored at the Oktoberfest Bomb Attack Documentation at any time. Likewise, you have the right to request the correction, blocking or (as far as this complies with mandatory data storage for business transactions) deletion of your personal data. Please contact our data protection officer. You will find contact details at the end of this document.

To enable data to be blocked at any time, this data must be kept in a locked file for monitoring purposes. You can also request the deletion of data unless we are legally obligated to keep it archived. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.

You can change or revoke your consent with immediate future effect by sending an e-mail to: stadtgeschichte (at)


Linked sites

Please note that operators of sites that are linked from this website may store and evaluate the data of visitors to the site. Please refer to the privacy policy on the respective websites.


Changes in our privacy policy

Our privacy policy may be adjusted as necessary to comply with current legal requirements or to implement changes to functions in the privacy policy, such as the integration of new social plugins. If you visit our website again, the updated privacy policy will apply.


Data protection officer

If you have any questions about data protection on the website, please send us an e-mail or contact our data protection officer directly.
