We will notify you in advance if we wish to process your personal data for a purpose not mentioned above.

The lawfulness of the processing of personal data is governed by Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This regulation makes provision for the following possibilities: processing on the basis of consent (GDPR Art. 6(1)(a)); processing for performance of a contract (GDPR Art. 6(1)(b)); processing for compliance with a legal obligation (GDPR Art. 6(1)(c)); and processing for the purposes of legitimate interests (GDPR Art. 6(1)(f)).

4. Transfer of data to third parties

Within Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg GmbH, your personal data is only transmitted to the persons and positions (e.g. departments, works council, representatives of severely disabled employees) that require it to fulfil our contractual and statutory obligations.
In addition, we may transfer your personal data to other recipients outside the company if this is necessary to fulfil contractual and legal obligations. These could be, for instance:

  • Parties providing goods and services for the FMX (e.g. in connection with trade-fair construction, event engineering, ticketing and access control systems, travel arrangements incl. hotel reservations and shuttle services for speakers)
  • Public authorities (e.g. state pension insurance institutions and other pension schemes, social insurance institutions, tax authorities, courts)
  • Banks (SEPA payment medium)

We transfer data to third parties if we need to do so in order to fulfil a contractual obligation or safeguard legitimate interests.

We transfer data to third parties insofar as you have given the necessary consent either to us or to the third party concerned.

The organiser grants participating corporate partners the right to collect the data of attendees at FMX 2019 by conducting a survey or by scanning tickets, as well as the right to process and store the data thus collected.

Right to revoke consent under data protection law (Article (7)(3) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time and without giving reasons.
