Copyright in your contribution
By submitting a contribution to our website, you grant us a non-exclusive copyright license to use it for the purposes of this project, in publications and exhibitions.

We, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem – Law Faculty and the European Forum – care about your personal data and privacy. That is why we take the issue of data security and privacy seriously.
“Personal Data” means any information that refers, is related to, or is associated with an identified or identifiable individual or as otherwise may be defined by applicable law or regulation.
How we collect your personal data
We will collect your data through the website. If you provide any additional data through e-mail correspondence or using our contact form, this data will be stored as well.
Lawful basis for processing your data
Legal obligation – processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject to, such as: demonstrate consent of legal guardian or third party.
Legitimate interests – processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us.
Why we collect your personal data
This website collects data for the operation of the project Du bist am Zug and for scientific purposes. The project Du bist am Zug is a part of research made at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The project seeks to test a new form of democratic participation – granting every person a right to express him- or herself by putting an individual contribution in the shared visual environment.
What data we collect and what we do with it
We collect the following data:
- First and last names
Every project participant is asked to provide his or her first and last name.
Your full name will appear on or next to your contribution unless you choose to stay anonymous.
Names will be used for contact with project participants: sending a verification e-mail after submission; contacting the participant if his or her contribution has been rejected; notifying if the contribution has been chosen to be presented on a billboard or not; contacting participants who agreed to give us an interview; asking a participant’s permission to publish additional data; contacting participants about possible publication of their contributions in books magazines or on-line; and contacting about any other project-related issues.
Minors under the age of eighteen (18) – only parents or legal guardian are permitted to apply personal data of minors.
The first name of the minor and his or her age will appear on or next to the contribution.
- E-mail addresses
Every project participant is required to provide his or her e-mail address.
We will use e-mail addresses to verify that each person participates only once, unless the contribution is made in the name of a minor, in which case one can upload a maximum of three contributions (one in one’s own name and two in the name of one’s children) with the same email address
We use e-mail addresses to verify that the contributions are uploaded by real persons. Each participant receives an e-mail asking to verify the contribution.
Also, similarly to names, we collect e-mail addresses for the purpose of contacting project participants: sending a verification e-mail after submission; contacting the participant if his or her contribution has been rejected; notifying if the contribution has been chosen to be presented on a billboard or not and contacting the participants who agreed to give us an interview.
The project Du bist am Zug is open only for participants who are physically located in Berlin. You will have to turn on the “location” function on your device to allow us to check your location and ensure that you are located in Berlin. We will not store your exact location and will not use this data in any other way.
The most important part of the project for us are the contributions themselves – pictures and texts that the participants will share.
We will publish all the accepted contributions in our Gallery, which is accessible for everyone through the Site, and on the social media of the project. Each contribution will be published with the name of the participant who shared it unless the participant asked to stay anonymous.
1500 randomly chosen contributions will be presented on billboards (city-light posters) in the streets of Berlin in summer 2022.
We will use all the contributions – the accepted and the rejected ones – for the scientific purposes of our project. We will classify, analyze, and interpret the contributions to understand their themes and motives.
The data will be processed anonymously, that is, without the names of the participants, but we will use additional parameters for the analysis, specifically the submission date, whether the contribution was made in one’s own name or in the name of a child, the child’s age, as well as optional data the participants may have chosen to share: sex, age, and place of residence.
We will publish accepted contributions of our choice – whether chosen for presentation on billboards or not – in articles, books – scientific or non-scientific, printed, and digital – and on websites explaining about this project or future projects of this kind.
We will strive to exhibit a selection of the accepted contribution in museums and galleries.
Contributions in publications, on websites and at exhibitions will appear with the first and the last name of the participant unless the participant chose to stay anonymous. Children’s contributions will appear with their first name and the age of the child.
- People in a picture
If there are recognizable people on the picture other than yourself, you will have to confirm having received their consent to share their picture for the project Du bist am Zug, for all the purposes listed above. We will store this information for the case of a complaint.
In addition, should the picture be selected for presentation on a billboard, we will contact you and ask to prove an explicit consent of all recognizable people on the picture.
If you submit a picture of a deceased person, who passed away in the recent 10 years, you have to confirm that you are his or her legal guardian or have received the consent of his or her legal guardian to the share picture for the project Du bist am Zug.
- Age, sex and place of residence, comments
These are optional details; you do not have to share them to be able to submit a contribution.
Other data – sex, place of residence, comments, and age of adult participants – will not be published without your permission. We will contact you to request your permission if we would like to publish this data.
We will store, process, and analyze this data anonymously to get a clearer picture of who are project participants, what different groups tend to share, what they tend to think about the project, etc.
We will publish anonymized and aggregative data – such as the percentage of men and women, and different age groups taking part in the project, what the comments are about, as well as any correlations between the different types of data we might find.
Should we like to publish this data in a non-anonymized way (for instance, with your name and/or in relation to your contribution), we will contact you to get your permission.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
As the security of information depends in part on the security of the computer you use to communicate with us and the security you use to protect user IDs and passwords, please take appropriate measures to protect this information.
The GDPR and the Germany Data Protection legislation (BDSG) have listed data subject rights, such as the right of access, data portability, correct or delete personal data, etc. For more information regarding your rights please visit https://www.dataguidance.com/notes/germany-data-protection-overview.
What if I notice a picture or a text violating my privacy?
We are doing our best to ensure that no legal rights are violated. Yet, if you notice a picture of you that has been published on our website, our social media or in any other way without your consent, please contact us. We undertake to process such requests as soon as possible, but no later than within thirty (30) days.
What if I don’t want my personal data to be used?
Although by participating in the project, you consent to our use of your personal data as described above, you may withdraw your consent anytime in relation to data that has not been published in a non-electronic form. Yet, please note that we will be unable to take down your contribution if it has already been published in a non-electronic form, that is, on a billboard, in a book or in an article. Please contact us in case you would like us to stop using other types of your personal data. We undertake to process such requests within thirty days.
The current and future project staff will have access to your data – this includes students, who will be recruited for this project and colleagues, from the Hebrew University and other universities, in Israel and the European Union, who will collaborate with us on this project. In addition, the maintenance staff of the website will have access to your data.
The data will be stored on our website in Germany as specified below and on PC’s of current and future project staff.
Data storage and retention
We need the collected data for our research: we will analyze it to get a sense of what people would share if they have a chance to place personal contributions in public space.
Contributions (with names or anonymous – as chosen by the participants) are the data our project seeks to retain. This data will be used for future projects, publications, and exhibitions.
All the contributions – except the rejected ones (the rules for rejecting contributions are specified here) – will be published in the Gallery of this website and may be accessed by anyone.
1500 randomly selected contributions will be published on billboards in the streets of Berlin.
Some of the contributions (chosen by the project staff) will be published in articles and books (printed and electronic), and presented at exhibitions in museums and galleries.
With your consent, we may send you e-mail or other messages and/or a newsletter about us or our services. You may remove your Personal Data from our mailing list and stop receiving future communication from us by following the UNSUBSCRIBE link located at the bottom of each communication.
We reserve the right to send you service-related communications, including service announcements and administrative messages, without your consent and without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Should you not wish to receive such communications, you may contact us as described.
