Who we share your data with

The organisation collects and stores this data by means of data processing equipment (EDP) to fulfil its statutory purposes and tasks in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that no unauthorised access to the data made available (and no unlawful processing of the data) takes place.

As far as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or justified within the scope of justified interests of the organisation, personal data will also be transmitted to contract processors (service providers) employed by the [name of the association/the company], if they comply with the data protection requirements specified in writing by the [name of the association/company] and commit themselves to secrecy towards the [name of the association/company]. For this purpose, an order processing agreement is concluded with the service providers used. Data is only transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) if this is necessary for the performance of the contract.

In general, data will only be retained as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of the collection purposes or as long as legal norms declare.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
