Data-Protection Statement and Agreement on Rights of Use


To be able to undertake the accreditation for the preview of the 10th Berlin Biennale, we need certain person-specific data from you. Your person-specific data (name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) 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). 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 by KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V.

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.


The Registration Function

We work, for the accreditation process, with the online-based accreditation system "Accredate". Accredate offers you the possibility of registering either exclusively for the 10th Berlin Biennale, or alternatively also to register for use of Accredate in connection with future accreditation for other events. The data input in the course of this registration for the 10th Berlin Biennale, as indicated in the input mask of the registration form




is collected by Accredate for use in our offer, is stored and is sent to us and transferred to the database of KUNST-WERKE e. V. If you also opt to register for use of Accredate for future accreditation to other events, the Accredate data-protection statement applies. No passing-on of the data to third parties is undertaken by KUNST-WERKE Berlin e.V., or takes place for newsletter dispatch to Newsletter2Go, if you have subscribed for the newsletter. Your data is used by us to check your accreditation enquiry and to send you, by e-mail, the necessary information and documents for accreditation.


Accreditation Mailings, Newsletters and Press Releases

We send necessary mailings on the accreditation for the 10th Berlin Biennale to registered users via Accredate. Such mailings include confirmation of receipt of the accreditation enquiry, confirmation of the accreditation with access codes to the preview days, notification of refusal of accreditation, general information on the preview and invitations to events.


In addition to this, we give you, via Accredate, the possibility of subscribing to the Berlin Biennale Newsletter, as well as to the KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V. press releases. The newsletter is sent via the service Newsletter2Go, whereas the press releases are sent via the KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V. mail server.


With the newsletter we provide information at regular intervals about the program and the activities of the "Berlin Biennale für zeitgenössische Kunst" [Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art]. With the press releases we inform the public about the program and the activities of KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V., including the Berlin Biennale and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art.


To be able to receive these mailings you need a valid e-mail address. The e-mail address given by you will be checked by Accredate to ensure that you are indeed the owner of the given e-mail address, or that its owner has authorized receipt of the mailings. To this end, after sending your accreditation enquiry, you will receive an e-mail at the given address with a request for confirmation.
