English reading copy: Data Protection Policy and Agreement on Rights of Use

The following regulations are intended to inform you about the type, the scope and the purpose of the collection, use and processing of person-specific data on the website of the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art. The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is a division of the KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V.

Your person-specific data (e.g. e-mail) will be processed by us solely in accordance with the provisions of German and European data protection law. Data is person-specific if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. You can find the legal basis of data protection in DSGVO [Basic Regulation on Data Protection], in the German Data Protection Law (BDSG) and in the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

We draw your attention to the fact that Internet-based data transfer has security gaps. Absolute protection against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Social Plugins

This website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, US (“Facebook”) or Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland. The privacy policy of Facebook can be found here. The plugins are usually marked with the Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook social plugin”. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins and their appearance here.

Further, our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) by Instagram, operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, US (“Instagram”). You can find their privacy policy here. The plugins are usually marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera.” You can find an overview of the Instagram plugins and their appearance here.

You can use these features to share or recommend content with your friends within the respective social networks.

By using social plugins, for example the Facebook “like” button, the Instagram button, or the Twitter button, person related data may be collected in the following ways:

By visiting a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The social network directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website. This way, the social network receives information about your browser with your IP address/device number having accessed the respective page of our website. This happens irrespective of whether you are actually connected to, or even registered for, the social network. The information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to the server of the social networks in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged into the social network, your visit can be assigned to your social network account. If you interact with the respective plugins or sharing content, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to your social network and stored there.

Please note that data collected by social plugins are only exchanged between the browser and the operator of the social network. We have no knowledge of the content of the collected and transmitted data.

Please refer to the privacy policies of the social networks for the purpose and scope of data collection and their further processing and use of data.

You can completely revoke the collection of data by Facebook plugins by using so-called add-ons for your browser.

If you wish to completely prevent loading the Twitter and Instagram plugins, you can set add-ons for your browser, for example the script blocker “NoScript”.
