The team of the Tyrolean Archive for Photographic Documentation and Art Association (TAP) appreciates your interest in our photographic research findings and your visit to the TAP website. Data protection and date security are of enormous importance to us. For this reason, the protection of your private data is likewise a major concern of ours.
In the following Data Protection Declaration, we explain what information is collected when you visit the TAP website and how that information is used. Of course, this does not apply to websites to which the TAP website links.
Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit the TAP website, our web server temporarily records – for the purpose of system security – the domain name or the IP address of the accessing computer. Personal data such as (your) name, (your) address, telephone number, or e-mail address are not collected unless you voluntarily submit this information.
Basically speaking, access to our online database of images is free of charge. If you wish to use such additional functions as the "light console" or "ordering tool," you will have to register for a user name and password. The corresponding data you supply will be used by us only for the purpose of facilitating the given function or service for which you have registered. The mandatory data necessary for registration must be complete – otherwise, the registration will be rejected.
The TAP reserves the right, in the event of violations of the General Terms and Conditions of Business or for other important reasons, to ban the user and/or customer and/or to refuse him or her any further access to our online database of images.
In the event of important changes – e.g., changes to the scope of services or technically necessary modifications – we will use the e-mail address you submit during registration in order to inform you about these changes.
Use and safeguarding of personal data
We use your personal data exclusively in order to fulfill your orders and respond to your inquiries. The name and address of the customer as well as his/her order-specific data are stored. The comprehensive protection of this data – the processing of which you have agreed to – is safeguarded according to the provisions of the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation (Article 6, paragraph 1a of the GDPR). You are entitled to revoke your consent at any time; this requires only that you send us an informal e-mail. The lawfulness of any data processing already performed in the past is unaffected by any such revocation.
We will store the data collected during registration for as long as you are registered with our website; thereafter, this data will be deleted. Legal storage duties and periods are unaffected by this provision.
In order to safeguard your data against unauthorized access and misuse, we have enacted very effective safety measures which are subject to continual review and updating.
The personal data and all other information related to the given order are encrypted and transmitted via a secure channel.
Transmission of personal data
Within the TAP, those authorized persons and agencies will be given access to your data who require it in order to fulfill their contractual and legal duties and/or legitimate interests (e.g., in the context of customer services).
Additionally, processors (e.g., payment service providers in charge of handling credit card payments) to whom we have outsourced corresponding tasks also gain access to your data insofar as this is necessary for the completion of the respective task. All processors are legally required to treat your data in strict confidence and to process it only in the context of the performance of the respective task:
On the TAP website, we offer, inter alia, the option of paying by credit card. The payment service provider for this task is: mPAY24 GmbH, Grüngasse 16, A-1050 Vienna. If you choose to pay via mPAY24, we will transmit the payment data you have provided to mPAY24 GmbH in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1a of the GDPR (Consent) and Article 6, paragraph 1b of the GDPR (Processing Necessary for the Performance of a Contract). You are entitled to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. The lawfulness of any data processing already performed in the past is unaffected by any such revocation.
Deletion of personal data
Your personal data will be deleted at the very latest after the expiration of all legal storage duties and periods.
Your traffic data will be deleted within a period of three months after completion of the payment procedure insofar as you have not submitted any written revocation. As long as a procedure is in progress (e.g., revocation; unpaid charges), your data will not be deleted.
Your content data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to process it in order for us to perform our services.
Instead of deleting the data, it may be anonymized.
Data protection rights
Right to information
You can demand that we provide you with information about whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right to correction
You have the right to demand, at any time, that we correct and/or complete your personal data.
Right to deletion / right to be forgotten
In the event that we process your personal data in an unlawful manner or the processing disproportionately violates your legitimate interest for protection, you have the right to demand that we delete your personal data. Please note that there can be reasons preventing immediate deletion, e.g., in the case of legal storage duties and periods.
Right to limitation of processing
You can demand that we limit the processing of your data if
- You dispute the correctness of the data – for the amount of time enabling us to check the correctness of the data;
- The processing of the data is unlawful, but you object to a deletion of the data and instead demand that the use of the data be limited;
- We no longer require the data for the intended purpose, but you still need the data to press, exercise, or defend legal claims, or you have submitted an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data transfer
You can demand that we provide you with the data you have entrusted to us for storage in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.
Right to Object
If we process your data in the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, or if we claim that the processing is in our legitimate interest, you have the right to object to this data processing, provided you have an overriding interest in the protection of your data. You can, at any time and without stating reasons, object to being sent advertising.
Right to Complain
If you are of the opinion that we, in processing your data, have violated Austrian or European Data Protection Law, we request that you contact us so that we can rectify the situation. Of course, you also have the right to lodge complaints with the Austrian Data Protection Agency – and starting on May 25, 2018, also with a Supervisory Authority within the E.U.

Google Web Fonts
In order to display fonts in a uniform and consistent fashion, the TAP website uses so-called "Web Fonts" supplied by Google. When accessing a website, your browser downloads the necessary Web Fonts into your browser cache so that texts and fonts can be properly displayed.
For this purpose, your browser must establish a connection to the Google servers. As a consequence of this, Google is informed that the TAP website was accessed by your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest according to Article 6, paragraph 1f of the GDPR.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, one of your computer's standard fonts will be used instead.
Matomo (formerly: Piwik)
The TAP website uses the Open Source Web analytical service "Matomo." Matomo uses so-called "cookies." Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and which allow your use of the website to be analyzed. To do this, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored on our server. Your IP address is anonymized prior to this information being stored.

If you do not consent with the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be deposited in your browser; this opt-out cookie prevents Matomo from storing your user data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. You will then have to re-activate the opt-out cookie when you again visit the TAP website.
