Our legitimate interest is to inform about our events through public relations, PR and presentation of activities, to refer to similar events and to present our work in order to increase our level of awareness. You have the right to object to the processing at any time. However, it can be assumed that the interest of the controller in the production and use of the photos and short videos does not unduly interfere with the rights and freedoms of the natural persons, especially since they have gone into the public space, the production and use of the photos and short videos was pointed out in advance and at the event, and care is taken both in the production of photos and the publication of the same that no legitimate interests of depicted persons are violated. If the rights and freedoms of a person depicted are violated for reasons particularly worthy of consideration, we will take appropriate measures to refrain from further processing. A deletion in print media that have already been issued cannot take place. Deletion on the website or in social media channels will take place within the scope of technical possibilities.
Recipients of the photos and videos are departments of the data controller that necessarily need to receive the data as part of the processing of the activity (e.g. EDP, other administrative units, marketing). Contractors and processors involved in the processing (production and publication). Tax advisors, authorities (tax office, other authorities) as well as legal representatives (in the enforcement of rights or defence of claims or in the context of official proceedings). The data is made available to the public on the internet and published in social media channels. The data will be published in print media, in particular press, newspapers and own folders. The data will not be passed on to recipients who pursue their own purposes with these data. In the case of social media channels, however, it may be that the respective social media service receives the right to exploit the published data. There is no transfer to recipients in a third country (outside the EU) or to an international organisation. There is no automated decision-making (profiling). There is no contractual or legal requirement to provide the data and there is no obligation to do so. As a data subject, you are generally entitled to the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction objection and data portability within the framework of the legal provisions.
