Data Protection on this Website

The Centre for East-Central and Southeastern Europe has been a part of the Museum of European Cultures – National Museums in Berlin.

The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Preussischer Kulturbesitz places great impor­tance on han­dling your per­sonal data in a respon­si­ble man­ner. To this end, the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion will out­line:

• why the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin col­lects and stores data
• what rights users of this web­site have
• how the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin col­lects data and which data it retains
• which kinds of cook­ies are used on the web­site of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
• how you can object to or avoid the col­lec­tion of your per­sonal data
• who is respon­si­ble for this web­site and its data pri­vacy poli­cies

1. Why does the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin col­lect data and uti­lize user analy­sis soft­ware?

As a gen­eral rule, we col­lect and use per­sonal data related to our users only to the extent that this is nec­es­sary for us to ensure the func­tion­al­ity of the web­site and to deliver our con­tent and ser­vices. For exam­ple, it is nec­es­sary for our sys­tem to tem­porar­ily save a user’s IP address in order to facil­i­tate a sta­ble and secure deliv­ery of the web­site to the com­puter of the user. To this end, it is nec­es­sary to save the anonymized IP address of the user for the dura­tion of 7 days. This data is erased as soon as it is no longer nec­es­sary
The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin carry out analy­sis of the ways users inter­act with this web­site. This pro­vides us with infor­ma­tion to improve our online pres­ence. This includes, for exam­ple, know­ing how often par­tic­u­lar aspects on a web­site are clicked on, or which browsers are used to view the site. The data that is saved for this is anonymized or pseudo- anonymized, and is used by the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin exclu­sively for the pur­poses of sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis. The data is not used for any other pur­pose, nor is it passed on to third par­ties.

2. What rights do users have on our web­site?

In rela­tion to per­sonal data and our web­site, you have the fol­low­ing rights, as defined by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation:

• the right of access (art. 15 GDPR),
• the right of noti­fi­ca­tion and era­sure (art. 16&17 GDPR),
• the right to restric­tion of pro­cess­ing (art. 18 GDPR),
• the right to object against pro­cess­ing (art. 21 GDPR),
• the right to data porta­bil­ity (art. 20)

Additionally, you have the right to make a com­plaint to a data pri­vacy reg­u­lat­ing body about the way we have processed your per­sonal data (art. 77 GDPR). For the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI) is the rel­e­vant body.

3. What data is col­lected?

a) Website func­tion­al­ity and cre­ation of log files
With every visit to our web­site, our sys­tem auto­mat­i­cally col­lects data and infor­ma­tion from the com­puter sys­tem of the com­puter pro­duc­ing the traf­fic. The pro­cess­ing of this per­sonal infor­ma­tion is reg­u­lated by art. 6 para. 1f of the GDPR. The fol­low­ing data is col­lected:

IP addresses
• Log files
• Inventory data, traf­fic data and con­tent data of the web­site
• Error pro­to­cols

Log files allow web­site oper­a­tors to mon­i­tor activ­i­ties on their web­sites. The access logs of the web server keep a record of when each par­tic­u­lar page was vis­ited. This includes the fol­low­ing data: IP address, direc­tory pro­tec­tion users, date, time, pages vis­ited, pro­to­cols, sta­tus codes, data size, refer­rer, user agent, host name used.
Our web­site is stored on a server belong­ing to the com­pany Strato AG. Strato AG saves data for the fol­low­ing peri­ods of time:

• The IP addresses are saved in anonymized form. For this, the final three dig­its are removed, that is, 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses are like­wise made anony­mous. These anonymized IP addresses are saved for 7 days. Information about the direc­tory pro­tec­tion user will be made anony­mous after one day.
• Error logs that mon­i­tor failed site vis­its are deleted after seven days. Along with the error notice, these include the IP address access­ing the site and, depend­ing on the kind of error, the web­site being accessed.
• Visits via FTPs are anonymized and saved for 7 days.

b) Which cook­ies does this web­site use?
Cookies are small text files which are saved on your com­puter when you visit a web­site and are accessed by the browser you use. Cookies allow infor­ma­tion to be exchanged between com­puter pro­grammes or to be saved for a lim­ited time. Specific infor­ma­tion is trans­mit­ted to our site from the saved cook­ies. However they are unable to oper­ate a pro­gramme or trans­fer viruses to your com­puter.

Cookies can only be saved if you have autho­rized this in your browser set­tings. Therefore, as a user, you also have full con­trol over the use of cook­ies. By chang­ing your set­tings in your inter­net browser, you can deac­ti­vate or limit the trans­mis­sion of cook­ies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can be done auto­mat­i­cally.
With every visit to a web­site, and every time you access a file online, it is typ­i­cal for browsers to trans­mit data. The pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data is reg­u­lated by art. 6, para. 1f of the GDPR. Of the data that is trans­mit­ted when you visit this web­site, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin save the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion:

• Browser type/version
• Operating sys­tem
• Referrer URL
• Date and time of the server inquiry
• Page(s) vis­ited and file(s) accessed
• Amount of data trans­mit­ted
• Anonymized/pseudo-anonymized IP address
• Country of ori­gin
• Notification of whether the attempt at access was suc­cess­ful.

The web­site of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin uses cook­ies very spar­ingly. This means that you can gen­er­ally also view the web­site with­out cook­ies.

• Part of the cook­ies we use (so-called tran­sient cook­ies) guar­an­tee that the web­site func­tions seam­lessly. The valid­ity of these cook­ies is lim­ited to the indi­vid­ual web ses­sion. As soon as you shut down your browser, these so-called “ses­sion cook­ies” are deleted.

c) Which data is saved in the event of dig­i­tal inquiries by email or using a con­tact form?
For mail inquiries or con­tact via an online form, you are required to enter spe­cific infor­ma­tion so that the Centre for East-Central and Southeastern Europe can con­tact you or send you the doc­u­ments you have requested. The pro­cess­ing of your per­sonal data is reg­u­lated by art. 6 para. 1a of the GDPR.

d) Images and videos of indi­vid­u­als on the web­site
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has strength­ened the rights of affected indi­vid­u­als. It is pos­si­ble that there are older images or videos on our web­site that show peo­ple who did not give their con­sent to be pho­tographed or recorded. If this affects you, then you have “the right to with­draw [your] con­sent at any time”.

e) Presence on online chan­nels and incor­po­ra­tion of ser­vices and con­tent from third par­ties
Online chan­nels of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
We are active on social media and plat­forms with our own pro­files, in order to com­mu­ni­cate with vis­i­tors, inter­ested indi­vid­u­als and users, and to inform them about our ser­vices.
You can find details about how user data is man­aged in Facebook’s data pri­vacy pol­icy, at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads und http://www.youronlinechoices.com, Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active.
It is cur­rently unclear whether or not Facebook com­plies with the level of pro­tec­tion required by the European Union in rela­tion to per­sonal data. In light of this, the use of Facebook poses a risk in terms of data pri­vacy.
Details about how user data is man­aged on YouTube are avail­able in their data pol­icy, at: https://policies.google.com/privacy, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated, Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.

YouTube
For embed­ding and dis­play­ing video con­tent, our web­site uses plu­g­ins from YouTube. The provider of this video por­tal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When vis­it­ing a page with a YouTube plu­gin inte­grated into it, a con­nec­tion to the YouTube servers is pro­duced. Through this, YouTube receives infor­ma­tion about which of our pages you have vis­ited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can directly con­nect your inter­net activ­ity with your per­sonal pro­file. By log­ging out in advance, you are able to pre­vent this from occur­ring.
We use YouTube in the inter­ests of deliv­er­ing a dynamic pre­sen­ta­tion of our online con­tent. This is con­sid­ered a jus­ti­fied inter­est as out­lined by art. 6 para. 1f of the GDPR.
Details about how user data is man­aged on YouTube are avail­able in their data pol­icy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Incorporation of other ser­vices and exter­nal con­tent
This web­site incor­po­rates exter­nal con­tent, an exam­ple being audio record­ings from VoiceRepublic, or ePa­per from Yumpu. This requires the providers of this con­tent (here­after referred to as “third party providers”) to process the IP addresses of users, since with­out the IP address, they could not send the con­tent to the browser of the user. We make an effort to only use con­tent for which the provider uses IP addresses of users exclu­sively for con­tent pro­vi­sion. However we have no power to pre­vent third party providers from using the IP addresses for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses, for exam­ple. If we know that such prac­tices are occur­ring, we make users aware of it.

4. Who is respon­si­ble for con­tent and main­te­nance, and who looks after data pro­tec­tion?

For this web­site, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Preussischer Kulturbesitz, legally rep­re­sented by Prof Dr Hermann Parzinger, President of the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz, is respon­si­ble for data pro­tec­tion.
