When you register for our event, the following mandatory information, which is marked by “*”, will be requested: first name, surname, institution, faculty, position, email, country of institution.

2.1.2 Voluntary data
In the context of your registration, you can also provide additional information on a voluntary basis: title, telephone number. Please note that this information is not required for registration and it is up to you alone to decide whether to share this information with us.
In order for us to be able to take special needs into account in the context of your registration, your consent to the processing of special categories of personal data may be required. This applies in particular to data on reduced mobility or health-related requirements for the catering provided. If you have given your consent for specific purposes, the purposes shall be those provided in the respective contents of such consent.
Data shall be processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. (1) lit. (a) GDPR or Art. 9 para. (2) lit. (a) GDPR. In cases where you must provide data for this purpose, we shall point this out expressly. If you do not provide such data, we may not be able to meet the request covered by your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time without prejudice to the lawfulness of processing performed with your consent up to such withdrawal.
We shall erase the data when it is no longer required for the purposes pursued by us or you have withdrawn your consent and no other legal basis applies. In the latter case we shall erase the data after the other legal basis ceases to apply.
2.2 Recording and publication of picture and sound material
Within the framework of our event, we process picture and/or sound material in order to make it accessible within DAAD and/or towards third parties.
The picture and/or sound material on which you can be recognisably seen and/or heard will be processed for the following purposes:
- Coverage of our event
- Live streaming of the event
- Dissemination of picture and/or sound material to DAAD sponsors/cooperation partners for their public relations work
If the aforementioned purposes require publication of the picture and sound material, this may take place in the following media if there is a corresponding legal basis:
- DAAD and/or NA DAAD website
- DAAD Intranet
- DAAD pages in social networks (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and video services (e.g. YouTube)

Further details on the purposes are specified, if any, in the invitation, the respective contractual documents or in the contents of any declaration of consent given.
2.2.2 Legal bases
a. Data processing for the purposes of contract performance
If the processing of picture and/or sound material is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the data shall be processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. (1) lit. (b) GDPR.
b. Establishment and/or performance of the contract of employment
If the processing of picture and/or sound material is necessary for the establishment and/or performance of the contract of employment, the data shall be processed on the basis of Art. 88 para. (1) GDPR in conjunction with section 26 of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG).
If we process picture and/or sound material on the basis of a declaration of consent given by you, this shall be done on the basis of Art. 6 para. (1) lit. (a) GDPR [where applicable in conjunction with section 26 para. (2) of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG)].
If we specifically process special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. (1) GDPR, this is done exclusively if you have given your explicit consent (Art. 9 para. (2) lit. (a) GDPR).
You may withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that this withdrawal only has an effect for the future, i.e. your withdrawal shall apply without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing of your data already performed with your consent up to the time of withdrawal.
d. Processing to safeguard legitimate interests
Where necessary, we shall process picture and/or sound material in which you can be seen and/or recognisably heard in order to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties. In this context, data processing shall be performed on the basis of Art. 6 para. (1) lit. (f) GDPR.
We shall only process the material if, after balancing the interests involved, we believe that DAAD’s interests in the processing of the picture and/or sound material outweigh these interests. In this context, the legitimate interests are the purposes mentioned in clause 2.

If data is transferred to bodies whose registered place of business or place of data processing is not located in a member state of the European Union or in another contracting state of the European Economic Area, we shall ensure prior to transfer that, apart from in exceptional cases permitted by law, either the recipient offers an adequate level of data protection (e.g. due to an adequacy decision of the European Commission, suitable guarantees such as the agreement of so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Union with the recipient) or your sufficient consent has been obtained. You can obtain from us an overview of the recipients in third countries and a copy of the specifically agreed rules for ensuring an adequate level of data protection. Please use the details in clause 1 for this purpose.
