The processing activities of our organisation are legally based on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, with regard to which we obtain consent for a specific purpose of processing.
If it is necessary to process personal data for the performance of a contract, or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract to which the data subject is party, processing is based on Art. 6(1)(b) DS-GVO.
In the event of our organisation being subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for compliance with fiscal obligations, processing is based on Art. 6(1)(c) DS-GVO.
Processing activities may ultimately also be based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. This is the legal basis for processing not covered by any of the above legal bases if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our organisation or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing activities because the European legislature has explicitly mentioned them. The purpose of the Institute for International Cooperation of the German Adult Education Association (DVV International) is to support the establishment and development of sustainable structures for youth and adult education in its partner countries, to promote adult education at international level and to promote global learning at Adult Education Centres (Volkshochschulen) in Germany.
We process the following categories of data: address data and communication data.
The data from these data categories were provided to us by yourself.
The periods for the erasure of the data are set according to the statutory storage periods, or three years after the most recent contact. If you have objected to the processing of the personal data concerning yourself, the data will be erased immediately.
You have the following rights under Art. 15 to 22 GDPR, assuming the statutory requirements are met: the right to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and data portability.
Art. 13(2)(b) in conjunction with Art. 21 GDPR furthermore provides you with a right to object to processing based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Art. 77 GDPR entitles you to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority should you consider that your personal data have not been processed lawfully.
