2. Purposes and legal basis of data processing

We process your personal information to further our justified interests described below, which also constitute the purposes of our data processing: Registration and information for specific events.

The data processing is based on Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. f) GDPR. Where you are required to provide data in these cases, we will expressly indicate this to you. Without such data, we may be unable to process your registration.

3. Receivers of personal information

Internal receivers: Within Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH, only those staff who require this information for the purposes designated under #3 are granted access to it.

External receivers: We then disclose your personal information to external receivers outside Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH only where this information is required for the processing or handling of your request, we have your consent to do this, or other legal authorization exists for such action.

External receivers can be:

a) order processors

Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH companies or external service providers contracted by us for the provision of services such as those in the technical infrastructure and maintenance areas in support of the Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH offerings or in the preparation of contractually relevant contents. We take great care in selecting these order processors and conduct periodic reviews to ensure the safeguarding of your privacy. Service providers must use the information exclusively for the purposes specified by us.

b) public bodies

Authorities and governmental institutions such as prosecutors’ offices, courts or tax authorities to which we have an obligation under the law to disclose personal information.

c) private bodies

Cooperative partners or aides to whom the data is transmitted based on consent or a legal framework.

4. Automated decision-making and profiling

We do not engage in either automated decision-making or profiling.

5. Retention period

Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH deletes personal information after 2 years if no other clear statement of intent has been received prior to that point.

6. Rights of data subjects

As a person affected by data processing, you are entitled to numerous rights. Specifically:

Right of information: You have the right to receive information concerning your personal data retained by us.

Right to correction and deletion: You can demand the correction of incorrect information and, where legal preconditions are met, the deletion of your information.

Restriction of processing: Where legal conditions have been met, you can demand that we restrict the processing of your data.

Data portability: If you provided us with data based on a contract or consent, you can – to the extent legal preconditions are met – demand to receive the data you made available to us in a structured, standard and machine-readable format or to have us transmit it to another responsible party.

Objection to data processing based on „justified interest“: You have the right at any time, based on your own particular situation, to contest our processing of your personal information to the extent that our actions are legally based on „justified interest“. If you assert your right of objection, we will halt the processing of your data unless we can show, in accordance with legal provisions, compelling and legitimate grounds for the continuance of this processing that outweigh your own rights.

Withdrawal of a given consent: You can withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time by contacting Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH. Please use the contact data of the Controller mentioned in section 1. for this purpose. Please note that the withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out before the withdrawal and that it also does not extend to those data processing operations for which there is a different legal basis.

Right to appeal to supervisory authority: In addition, if you believe that the processing of your personal information is in violation of data protection law, you can file an appeal with the responsible supervisory authority. To that end, you can contact the supervisory authority with jurisdiction over your place of residence or country or the supervisory authority responsible for us.

How to contact us and assert your rights: You can contact us free of charge with questions regarding the processing of your data, your rights as a data subject and any consent issued. To claim your rights identified above, please send an email to or write to us at the address provided under #1 above . Please ensure that we will be clearly able to identify you.
