Privacy Policy for Social Media

In the following, we would like to inform of how we deal with your data pursuant to Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Party Responsible
We, the Kunsthalle Bremen, operate the following social media pages:
•    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Kunsthalle_HB
•    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KunsthalleBremen
•    YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/KunsthalleBremen
•    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/Kunsthalle.Bremen/
•    Voice Republic: https://www.voicerepublic.com/users/kunsthalle-bremen

You can find our contact information under Impressum – Legal Notice.

In addition to us, there are the operators of social media platforms themselves. In this respect, they are also parties responsible for processing data, and our influence over them is limited. In those places where we can exert our influence and set the parameters of data processing, we work with the operators of social media platforms towards fair data protections using the means we have available. In many cases, we are not able to exert any influence over the way operators of social media platforms process the data, and we are not precisely aware of what data they process. However, these operators explain how user data is managed in their own privacy policies.

How We Use Your Data
Data such as comments, videos, images, likes, public messages, etc. that you enter on our social media sites are published by the social media platforms and are not used or processed for other purposes at any time. We reserve the sole right to delete content if necessary. Where appropriate we may share your content on our page if this is a function of the social media platform or communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing the data in such a way is carried out in the interest of public relations and communication.

If you object to the use of specific data being processed over which we have influence, please contact the officer named in our Impressum – Legal Notice. We will verify your objection or direct you to the social media platform if necessary.

If you submit an inquiry on one of the social media platforms, we will refer you to another, more secure means of communication to guarantee confidentiality depending on the answer you require. You always have the option of sending confidential inquiries to the address stated in the Impressum – Legal Notice.

As stated above, we attempt to ensure that our social media pages conform as closely as possible to data privacy regulations as far as allowed by the operators of social media platforms. For this reason, we do not use demographic, interest-based, behaviour-based, or location-based target group definitions for advertising that the operators of social media platforms may make available to us. In general, we do not use social media platforms for advertising purposes. We have little influence over, nor can we switch off the statistics that operators of social media platforms make available to us. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are provided to us.

Data Processing by Operators of Social Media Platforms
Operators of social media platforms use web tracking methods. Such web tracking may also occur irrespective of whether you are logged on or registered with the social media platform. As already mentioned, we unfortunately have no control over the web tracking methods of social media platforms. We are, for instance, unable to switch this method off.

Please be aware that it is not out of the question for a social media platform to use your profile and user behaviour data in order to assess such things as your habits, personal relationships, preferences etc. We have no control whatsoever over the processing of your data by the operator of a social media platform.

For more information about data processing by social media platform operators and other ways to object to the use of your data, please refer to the Privacy Policy of the relevant operator:
•    Twitter: https://twitter.com/de/privacy
•    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation

•    Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875
•    Voice Republic: https://blog.voicerepublic.com/privacy-statement/
