As far as processing personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which Fachhochschule Dortmund is subject, Art. 6 para 1 lit. c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

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

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, Art. 6 para 1 lit. 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.

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

However, the personal data will not be erased in the aforementioned cases, if the processing of personal data is necessary to enable Fachhochschule Dortmund and IEEE E-TEMS Organising Committee to fulfil a legal obligation imposed by the European or national legislator or if the processing is carried out to fulfil a task of Fachhochschule Dortmund that is in the public interest or 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 data subject, the data subject may withdraw its consent at any time with future effect. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to Information
The person concerned has the right to demand a confirmation of Fachhochschule Dortmund whether their personal data are being processed. If this is the case, the person concerned has the right to get information on what personal data is being processed and for what purpose.
