5.4. Images/footage of visitors

The VIERNULVIER building is constantly videoed for security purposes.

During events organised by VIERNULVIER, a photographer is often present to document the atmosphere. These photos may be published on our website, on social media and in our printed promotional materials. The photos usually depict the artists and the event’s audience. Occasionally, as a spectator, you may be recognisable in one of the photos. All photos are stored on VIERNULVIER's secure server.

Some events in VIERNULVIER are recorded. The footage is broadcast live on social media and made available later on social media and/or used as part of a promotional video that is edited afterwards. It may happen that the audience is recognised in this footage, although there is no focus on faces.

If you are recognisable in our photos / images and you would rather not be, you can always contact us at
