Our premises are guarded by CCTV for preventive reasons and for our legitimate interest in ensuring a secure environment for our visitors and for valuable collections. We make sure that the CCTV does not infringe upon the privacy of our employees and visitors.
Our legitimate interest is also direct communication with our clients and partners, whom We hold in great respect. Without this direct communication, We could not accomplish our mission or the duties that We fulfil in the public interest.  Photos and videos of National Museum events
The events We organize for the public are documented by means of photographs and sometimes videos. We then publish selected photos and videos on our website, social networking sites or photo galleries available on the Internet. Photographs are also made available to official media to a smaller extent.
This is the ordinary documenting of events, which, given the information published herein, can be performed without your explicit consent. We make sure that our visitors, whom We we hold in great respect, are not portrayed in disturbing or undignified situations, especially when it comes to children. However, if You find that a photo or video has been published that captures You in a way that does not suit You, please let us know and We will take appropriate action in accordance with your wishes. 
If your photo were published in connection with your name, for example, We would ask for your consent to such processing.

It depends on the specific situation whether the provision of your personal data is a legal or contractual requirement and whether You have a duty to provide us with your personal data.  We will always inform You when such an obligation exists and what the consequences may be.

3.5  Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data
Recipients of the personal data that We process are our authorized employees and our contractual partners, who help us to operate and provide us with software.
