Harpa receives a great number of guests every year and the company handles the personal data of its guests and has established the following personal data protection policy in their regard.
Harpa’s function is to provide a venue for musical and cultural activities, as well as conferences, meetings and gatherings, both at domestic and international level.
The function of the house is also to act as a social centre for all Icelanders in the centre of Reykjavík, as well as a destination for both domestic and foreign tourists who want to explore the building, its services, architecture and hosted art works.
Harpa primarily fulfils this function by renting out halls and spaces for musical events, conferences, meetings and related activities at competitive prices, by organising collaborative projects and initiatives of its own, as the company's operations allow.
Harpa is owned by the State (54%) and the City of Reykjavík (46%) and is a public limited company.
This policy applies to all of the personal data which Harpa collects, whether it is gathered and stored electronically or otherwise, such as on paper.
The policy is always accessible on Harpa’s website www.harpa.is and can also be viewed when you go through the process of buying a ticket. Every effort has been made to explain the processing of personal data in a simple and concise manner.
This policy is based on Act no. 90/2018 on Data Protection and the Handling of Personal Information and was approved at a meeting of the Board of Directors on 4 March 2020.
