Data collection when registering for COUP services
TRANSFERRING YOUR DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
TRANSFERRING YOUR DATA TO ORDER PROCESSORS OR THIRD PARTIES
Aside from the service providers listed above under "DATA COLLECTION WHEN USING THE COUP WEBSITE" , we have involved order processors for the following processing activities:
- Request management
- Data storage (cloud)
- E-mail services
- Postal services/shipping
- Ticket management
Your data will only be forwarded to third parties as long as this is permissible or mandatory according to the EU's General Data Protection Law. You can be certain that COUP—for instance, in the event of a request by an investigating body—will have those responsible for data protection at COUP check every request for transferring protected data in advance.
If we transfer data to recipients located outside of the EEC, we will ensure prior to transfer that the recipient has either an appropriate level of data protection (e.g., due to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission for the respective country or an agreement to what is referred to as the EU standard contractual clause of the European Union with the recipient) or your approval of the transfer.
YOUR RIGHTS WITH REGARD TO COUP
We would like to briefly provide you information on the data protection rights that you can exercise with regard to COUP.
Information and the right to be informed
You have the right to obtain information about your personal data that we have stored. To do so, please send us an e-mail email@example.com.
Right of rectification
COUP may only process accurate data about you. If you—for example, through exercising your right to information—should determine that any data about you is not relevant or has become irrelevant, then we are absolutely obligated to rectify this immediately.
Right to Erasure/ Right to limit processing (right to block)
COUP will only process your data for the purposes listed in this data protection notice. For the time being, we only need this data for as long as you are using our service. After this time is up, we are legally obligated with regard to specific data categories to store your data for a specific period of time. However, because we no longer need your data at this time in order to fulfil the intended purposes listed in this data protection notice, we will limit its processing, meaning we will block it for other purposes.
You can demand that your data be deleted or its processing be limited even while using the COUP service. Deletion is, however, only possible for data that we do not need for performing the contractual relationship with you or for legally mandated archiving purposes or for verification purposes.
Right of objection
Insofar as you have a legal right to objection with regard to the data processing described in this data protection notice, we will inform you of this at the appropriate point. You also have the option to exercise your right of objection conveniently at the appropriate points.
A right of objection against (further) data processing is always available to you when processing on the basis of the legal principle "legitimate interest” and when processing based on agreement.
Right to complain to the regulatory authority:
You have the right to file a complaint with the data protection authorities. To do so, you can for example contact the data protection authority that is responsible for the location of your residence or for your federal state, or you can contact the data protection authority that is responsible for us. That would be the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Berliner Beauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit).
CONTACT WITH THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR DATA PROTECTION AT COUP
You can contact the person responsible for data protection at COUP directly via the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHANGING THE DATA NOTICE
We reserve the right to occasionally adjust parts of this data protection notice that do not require agreement so that they always fulfil the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection notice, such as when introducing new services. The new data protection notice will then apply to your subsequent visit. If there is a change to our services or if the introduction of a new service requires your prior approval, we will inform you of this in a timely manner and request your approval.
