We attach great importance to protecting your personal data and your privacy. Your personal data are treated as strictly confidential and handled in accordance with this privacy policy. Together with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect our databases against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification. Data security is assured at all times.

This privacy policy provides an overview of the ways in which your personal data are processed when you use the websites of the Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft, Kunsthaus Zürich, Winkelwiese 4, CH-8001 Zurich (the ‘Kunstgesellschaft’, ‘we’ or ‘us’).

 

WHAT PERSONAL DATA DO WE PROCESS?

We process personal data collected when you visit our websites solely for the purpose stated during processing and in accordance with the law.

We process the following personal data relating to you while you are using our websites: Your communication data, specifically your IP address, operating system, browser ID and browser activity, as well as other information about how you have interacted with our websites or other websites.

 

IS YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHARED WITH THIRD PARTIES?

We can transfer the personal data collected from you for all the purposes set out in this privacy policy to third parties in other countries engaged by us to maintain our websites and the services we offer. These may include countries outside Switzerland and the European Union that may not have data protection legislation comparable to that in Switzerland or any data protection legislation at all. By using our websites, you agree to this transfer.

Data are transferred to third parties in Switzerland or abroad solely on the basis of contractual agreements that comply with the applicable laws and guarantee appropriate protection of your personal data at all times.

 

FACEBOOK

Our website includes plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. These can be identified by the Facebook logo or the ‘Like’ button on our website. An overview of Facebook plugins can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our website, the plugin creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. As a result, Facebook will be informed that you have visited our website using your IP address. By clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button while logged in to your Facebook account, you can link to content from our websites on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate your visit to our websites with your user account. Please note that as provider of the websites, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or their use by Facebook. We can therefore not be held liable for any use of the plugins by you. Further information can be found in Facebook’s Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

If you do not wish to allow Facebook to associate your visit to our websites with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account.

 

YOUTUBE

Our website includes YouTube functions. ‘YouTube’ refers to Google Ireland Limited, a company registered and operated under Irish law (register number: 368047) with its offices at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which offers the services in the EEA and Switzerland. Your legal agreement with YouTube consists of the Terms of Service set out at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/static?template=terms.

These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement between you and YouTube regarding the use of the services. Google’s Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-US) explains how Google handles your personal data and protects your data when you use YouTube services. We cannot be held liable for any use of YouTube services by you.

 

VIMEO

We use, amongst others, Vimeo to integrate videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC which is headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

Every time you visit a website that offers one or more video clips a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server. This tells the Vimeo server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo member at the time, Vimeo will associate this information with your personal user account. When you use the plugin, for example by clicking the start button on a video, this information is also associated with your user account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies.

More information about data processing and how Vimeo protects your data can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy. We cannot be held liable for any use of Vimeo services by you.

Our website uses functions from the network LinkedIn. They are provided by the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time you visit one of our pages that incorporates LinkedIn functions, a connection is established to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our websites using your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn ‘Recommend’ button while logged in to your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn can associate your visit to our websites with you and your user account. Please note that we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or their use by LinkedIn.
