All texts, images, graphics, sound, video and animation files and their arrangements are subject to copyright and other laws protecting intellectual property. They may not be copied for commercial purposes or for distribution, nor may they be altered and used on other websites. All rights reserved. The website also contains images, graphics, sound, video and animation files that have been made available by other authors or are freely available without restriction of the rights of use. This copyright of third parties is also subject to copyright. A use requires the permission of the respective authors.
The association dieKunstBauStelle e.V. as content provider according to § 8 Abs.1 des Teledienstegesetzes (TDG) is responsible for its own information, which this homepage provides for use, according to the general laws. Cross-references (“links”) to contents provided by other providers are to be distinguished from these own contents.
Through the link, the operator provides access to external information. Links” are always “living” (dynamic) references. When the link was established for the first time, the external content was checked to determine whether it could give rise to civil or criminal liability. However, the operator is not obliged to constantly check the contents to which he refers in his offer for changes which could give rise to a new responsibility. Only if he establishes or is informed by others that a concrete offer to which he has provided a link triggers civil or criminal liability will he remove the reference to this offer, insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable.
The technical possibility and reasonableness is not influenced by the fact that even after the operator of the homepage has prevented access, the illegal or punishable offer can still be accessed from other servers.
Reference to all links on our pages
With the judgement of 12.05.1998 – 312O 85/98 – “liability for links” the regional court Hamburg decided that one has to answer if necessary by the mounting of a link the contents of the linked sides and if necessary even the links attached there also. This can be prevented only by the fact that one dissociates oneself expressly from these contents. “Hereby we dissociate ourselves expressly from all contents of all linked sides on our Hompage and do not make ourselves these contents not too own. This declaration applies to all links on our homepage.
The legal principles of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / server log files
The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications.
Dealing with personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.
Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the user consents to the collection of such data.
When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Comments and Contributions
When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider if someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider himself can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.
Follow-up comments can be subscribed to by users. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the email address entered. Users can unsubscribe from current comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain information about this.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.
If you wish to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. This data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
With the registration to the newsletter we store your IP address and the date of the registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for receiving the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised party.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, your email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. We strive to use only those contents, whose respective offerers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
Within this offer the pictures of the stock image provider Getty Images can be integrated. The pictures are recognizable by a frame with the note “Getty Images”. The display of these images requires Getty Images to recognize the user’s IP address so that the images can be delivered to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. According to current knowledge, the IP address is only used for this purpose. However, the provider has no control over whether Getty Images stores the IP address for statistical purposes. As far as this is known to the provider, the users will be informed or the pictures will be removed.

Using Facebook Social Plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “like”, “like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here:
When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his level of knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or commenting, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to know and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and link it to his Facebook stored member data, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
+1 button from Google+
This offer uses the “+1″” button of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can be recognized by the sign “+1″ on a white or colored background.
When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The content of the “+1″” button is transmitted by Google directly to its browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal information is collected without clicking the button. Only with logged in members, such data, among other things the IP address, are raised and processed.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Google’s data protection information on the “+1″” button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.
This offer uses website elements (https://dev.twitter.com/web/overview), such as buttons or embedded content of the Twitter service, offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. With the help of the website elements it is possible, for example, to share a contribution or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. As additional content, individual tweets can be integrated into the website.
This offer uses the buttons of the service Tumblr. These buttons are offered by Tumblr, Inc., 35 East 21st St, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10010, USA, firstname.lastname@example.org. They are recognizable by the term “Tumblr”. With the help of the buttons it is possible to divide a contribution or side of this offer with Tumblr or to follow the offerer with Tumblr.
When a user accesses a website of this website that contains such a button, his browser establishes a direct connection with Tumblr’s servers. The content of the Tumblr button is transmitted by Tumblr directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data Tumblr collects with the help of this plugin and informs the user according to his level of knowledge. According to this, only the IP address of the user is transmitted along with the URL of the respective website when the button is accessed, but is not used for purposes other than the display of the button.

The user has the right, upon request and free of charge, to obtain information about the personal data stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correction of incorrect data, blocking and deletion of his personal data, unless there is no legal obligation to retain.
