Privacy policy

To this end, we follow the General Data Protection Regulation (also known as GDPR).

Processing of personal data

As a museum, we are careful to process your data only if we have a valid legal basis for doing so.

If you send personal data to the museum yourself, including by ordering a ticket via the website, this personal data will be processed by the museum to fulfil your request. In the case of online payments for orders from our shop, external payment services will be used, which will also process your data as required for the execution of the payment.

Your personal data may also be used to keep you informed of current or future activities of the museum. If you also wish to be kept informed of the offer of the tourist service Zonnebeke, you may indicate this by ticking the checkbox provided for this purpose on our event registration forms. Your personal data will only be processed by the museum or the tourist office of the municipality of Zonnebeke.



The GDPR also gives you a number of rights when processing personal data. You have the right to ask us what personal data relating to you we hold, and to have it corrected if necessary. You also have the right to oppose the sending of further information about the museum’s activities.


The AGB MMP 1917 relies on the Data Protection Officer (DPO) of the municipality of Zonnebeke.He monitors the application of the legal obligations regarding data protection and can contact you if you have any questions about the processing of your personal data.We will provide you with an answer as soon as possible: no later than 30 days after we have received your request and proof of your identity.Using your rights normally does not cost you anything.However, if your question is excessive or if you often ask the same question, the board may charge a fee or refuse your request.
