Data protection and consent in line with event registration

Personal data (surname, first name, title, email, name of the project/institution/organization, department/specialization, country of assignment, profession), which are or were transmitted in the context of the registration will be stored on servers of GIZ and are used for the participant management and event organization. The data will be used exclusively for the purpose of participant management and event organization. Lists of participants including personal data (surname, first name, title, email, name of the project/institution/organization, country of assignment) will be made available to other participants in advance and in the course of the event. GIZ protects all data by suitable technical and organizational measures against unintentional or intentional falsification, destruction, loss or access by unauthorized persons. Access to personal data is restricted to GIZ employees, who must process this data in accordance with the above-mentioned purpose. They deal with the data in an orderly and confidential manner. All data will be used exclusively for the purposes described; any other use will always depend on a new consent. The declarant has the right to ask for his or her personal data, to have it corrected if necessary or to request the deletion of the data. The data will then be deleted. Permission to use personal data can be revoked at any time. In the framework of the documentation of the event, photo, sound and video footage will be taken. You agree that your personal data is stored by GIZ and used by employees of GIZ. This consent remains valid for a period of up to 2 years after the declaration of consent, even if no participation has taken place. You agree that photos, sound and video footage may be taken of you during the event and may be used for public relations purposes by GIZ - including publication on GIZ websites. No data will be used commercially. Registration for the events is not possible without consent. You can revoke your consent any time by sending an e-mail to:

The rights of the data subject

You are entitled to enquire about your personal data and its processing, to have the data corrected if necessary, and to request restriction of processing or the erasure of the data.
