3. General Information on Data Processing

Fachhochschule Dortmund collects and uses personal data of its visitors only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services in accordance with a legal basis.

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
As far as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for processing their personal data, section 6 (1) letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing personal data.

As far as processing personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which Fachhochschule Dortmund is subject, section 6 (1) letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, section 6 (1) letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of an official authority conferred on Fachhochschule Dortmund, section 6 (1) letter e GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of Fachhochschule Dortmund or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the party concerned do not outweigh the former interest, section 6 (1) letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. This does not apply as far as Fachhochschule Dortmund acts in a sovereign capacity during the processing of such data.

Storage Period of Personal Data
Personal data of the person concerned will only be stored by us as long as the purpose of the storage exists. If the processing is based on the consent of the person concerned, the data will only be stored as long until the person concerned revokes their consent, unless there is another legal basis for the processing.

Right to Rectification and Deletion of Personal Data
The person concerned has the right to demand that we rectify incorrect personal data concerning them without delay. The person concerned also has the right to demand that we delete personal data concerning them without delay as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies or if the processing is based on the consent of the person concerned, if the person concerned withdraws their consent and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The personal data of the person concerned will also be deleted if they object to the processing in accordance with section 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or if the personal data have been processed unlawfully or if the deletion was provided for in regulations to which Fachhochschule Dortmund is subject in order to fulfill a legal obligation by the European or national legislator.

However, the personal data will not be deleted in the aforementioned cases, if the processing of personal data is necessary to enable Fachhochschule Dortmund to fulfill a legal obligation imposed by the European or national legislator or if the processing is carried out to fulfill a task of Fachhochschule Dortmund that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to Fachhochschule Dortmund or if continued storage of personal data is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to Withdraw Consent
If the processing of personal data is based on the consent of the person concerned, the latter may withdraw their consent at any time. The processing of personal data carried out up to the withdrawal shall remain lawful despite the withdrawal.

Right to Information
The person concerned has the right to demand a confirmation of Fachhochschule Dortmund whether personal data concerning them is being processed. If this is the case, the person concerned has the right to information what personal data is being processed and for what purpose. In addition, they have the right to information on the duration of the planned storage of the data or which criteria are used to determine the storage duration.
