The following principles apply to all processing operations about which information is provided in this privacy statement:

1.5.2.1 Purpose and scope of the processing of personal data.
Personal data will only be collected for the specified purposes. The scope of processing is limited to what is necessary for the purposes of the processing. The controller reserves the right to process personal data if and to the extent necessary to protect its legitimate interest in asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

Legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO)
Safeguarding a legitimate interest on our part or on the part of a third party, insofar as the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO)
1.5.2.3 Storage period of personal data
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

1.5.2.4 Recipients of personal data
Recipients of personal data of data subjects are, in principle, only the responsible party and processors employed by it in compliance with data protection law. Data may also be passed on to third parties if the data controller is entitled to do so by virtue of a permission norm or is obliged to do so by virtue of statutory provisions, administrative law or court orders.

1.5.2.5 Transfer of personal data to third countries
Should personal data of data subjects be transferred to countries outside the European Union (EU) or outside the European Economic Area (EEA), this will only take place if an adequate level of protection exists (Art. 45 DS-GVO) or if suitable guarantees exist (Art. 46 DS-GVO) or under the conditions of Art. 49 DS-GVO for exceptions in certain cases.

1.5.2.6 Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

1.5.3 Rights of data subjects
Data subjects have the following rights:

1.5.3.1 Right to revoke consent (Art. 7 (3) DS-GVO).
Once you have given your consent to the processing of data, you may revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

1.5.3.2 Right to information (Art. 15 DS-GVO)
You can request information about whether personal data about you is being processed. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period or criteria for this, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection or the existence of the right of appeal. Furthermore, you can request information about the origin of data that has not been collected from you. You can also ask to be informed whether automatic decision-making is used, whether data is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation and on what basis this is done. You may request a copy of the personal data concerning you, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

1.5.3.3 Right to rectification (Art. 16 DS-GVO)
You may request the immediate correction of inaccurate or, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the completion of your stored personal data.

1.5.3.4 Right to erasure (Art. 17 DS-GVO)
You may request the erasure of your stored personal data if the purpose of the processing has ceased to exist due to the passage of time or other reasons, you have withdrawn your consent or objected to the processing and there are no overriding reasons for the processing or other legal grounds, the legal basis for the data processing is missing or has ceased to exist and the processing is not necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If we have made your data public, we are obliged to take reasonable steps to inform any recipient that you have requested the erasure of any links to or copies of the personal data concerned.

1.5.3.5 Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DS-GVO)
You have a right to restriction of processing if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

1.5.3.6 Right to data portability (Art. 20 DS-GVO)
You have a right to receive the personal data you have provided on the basis of your consent or a contract concluded with us, which is processed with the help of automated procedures, in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to demand that it be transferred to another controller, insofar as this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons and it is technically feasible.

1.5.3.7 Right to object (Art. 21 DS-GVO)
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing carried out by us for the purposes of protecting our legitimate interests, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms. At any time, you have the right to object to processing that we carry out for direct marketing purposes. Your data may then no longer be processed for these purposes.

1.5.3.8 Right of appeal (Art. 77 DS-GVO)
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes data protection rules.

2.3.2.5 Possibility of objection and removal

Sven Giegold and Europe Calling e.V. are jointly responsible for the processing of the data and addresses collected in the Europe Calling webinars. Europe Calling e.V. is responsible for the technical administration, including the sending of messages as well as the administration, maintenance and further development of the software used and thus also of the users’ data. In addition, Europe Calling e.V. will in future also be responsible for part of the content of the newsletter and will send it out under sole or joint responsibility. Sven Giegold also takes care of part of the content of the newsletter and sends messages in sole or joint responsibility. This division of responsibility makes it possible to ensure that the newsletter is sent out in the usual quality. This is in the legitimate interest of Sven Giegold as well as Europe Calling e.V. and ultimately also of all users (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO) and justifies the necessary processing of personal data.
Of course, this does not result in any disadvantage for the users. Users can declare all rights as data subjects – including revocation – both to the association and to Sven Giegold, whereby we ask you to primarily contact the association.

When you register for an event or use other offers on the Action Network platform, a contact record is stored for the data collected in the form (usually first name, surname, email address, postcode and country, and postal address if applicable).

Irrespective of your consent to receive general e-mail messages, you may receive messages by e-mail relating to the specific offer used, e.g. in the case of events, a registration confirmation or date reminder.

Depending on your continued use of the offers for which the responsible party uses the Action Network platform, additional data will be added to your contact record if you reuse the previously provided email address in the form of the offer or if the use of the offer is connected to this email address:

Emails sent to the email address and whether emails were opened or links contained therein were accessed;
Letters sent to a postal address, if one was provided;
Name of a fundraising campaign, date of a donation and donation amount.
The collection of data for opening e-mail messages is carried out by means of so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are loaded when an e-mail message is opened. An encrypted identifier is transmitted, which can be used to assign the opening to an e-mail address. This identifier is also transmitted when the links contained in the e-mail messages are called up.

The legal basis of the processing of your data for the use of the offers for which the controller uses the Action Network platform is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO. The delivery of general e-mail messages is based on your consent in this regard. If the processing is aimed at the initiation or fulfilment of a contract, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO.

2.3.3.3 Purpose of the processing
The data controller processes your data for the purposes of the particular service you are using. This may be to prepare and hold an event, to create petitions, to subscribe to email information or to carry out fundraising activities.

2.3.3.5 Storage period
Your data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to the processing of your data for the use of the offers for which the controller uses the Action Network platform and there is no other legal basis for the processing of your data.
