In the following we will inform you, in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),
Personal data is all data, that pertains to your personal being, including but not limited to your name, address, or email address.
For the data processing in Deutsches Aktieninstitut the following personal information can be recorded:
Also the personal data considered particularly sensitive in the category “political opinion” or “trade union membership” referred to in Article 9 EU GDPR could be recorded for data processing. For example, this could be the case when conclusions can be drawn from the data with regard to your political party affiliation or union membership.
We also record sensitive data from other categories such as religious affiliation of (former) employees and legal representatives of Deutsches Aktieninstitut within the scope of statutory provisions.
Within the framework of our business relationships or the initiation thereof we receive personal data from you or your business. For example, in the scope of membership of your company in Deutsches Aktieninstitut or your participation in an event hosted by our firm. This also applies to information ascertained through contacting for other matters. Within the framework of active business relationships or follow-up to contacting through personal contact, by telephone, or written contact additional personal data could emerge, such as electronic copies of correspondence or telephone numbers could be stored in the call journal of a phone system.
For contacting on our part, we also process personal data that we can permissibly find in publicly accessible sources (for example commercial registries and media) and from third parties.
We also obtain personal data from you, when you access our website. (See the Data Protection Notice for Website)
We process the collected personal data for different purposes, which are ultimately a result of our articles of association that can be found at https://www.dai.de/en/who-we-are/articles.html. We particularly advocate for the strengthening of the capital market, offer a platform to its actors, and contribute to the development of the essential framework.
We base our data processing on your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) of the EU GDPR, insofar as you have provided us with it. Given consent can be withdrawn at any given moment. To do so contact us at email@example.com. In order to meet our previously noted association obligations or contractual obligations we invoke Article 6 (1)(b) of the EU GDPR. To guard our legitimate interests, we process personal data according to a balancing of interests as outlined in Article 6 (1)(f) EU GDPR. In this manner we process data for previously mentioned causes, such as to complete surveys for Deutsches Aktieninstitut and for contacting people for business purposes. This contacting includes that done so with personal data that was made public or that we received from third parties in a permissible manner.
In the scope of our business activity we work together with our service providers, which are operative as processors, as defined in Article 28 EU GDPR, for us in the field of IT services, printing, shipment and accounting, as well as producing of translations and transcripts. They either process data directly (printing and shipment) or have the theoretical possibility to recognize your information in our systems. Therefore, we enter into order processing contracts with these service providers and ensure that also these service providers adopt the necessary technical-organizational measures to protect your personal information.
Moreover, personal data will also be disclosed to public bodies such as the authorities, insofar as this is necessary under the applicable law.
Your information will not be disclosed to third parties not aforementioned in this section without your explicit consent and will also not be transmitted to a third state.
Our relationships are intended to be long term and therefore, a fixed date cannot be stated. For this reason, we keep your information until you have stated a revocation of your information or until the information no longer serves a purpose in completing our association’s objectives or it becomes a legal obligation. Then, a deletion will follow or – if an obligation of storage applies- a limitation of the processing of the information. In this context we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the legal retention obligation as stated in the code of commercial law as well as the tax code may be up to ten years. The civil statutes of limitation that are coming into validity state storage for up to three years since first knowledge and up to thirty years.

The limitations of the right to information and the right to erasure found in §§ 34 and 35 of the BDSG apply.
In accordance with the right to object found in article 21 EU GDPR you have the right, based on reasons that emerge in special situations, to revoke your consent to the processing of your data, which resulted from Article 6 (1)(f) EU GDPR (data processing out of justifiable interest), at any time.
In the case of a objection according to Article 21 EU GDPR, we will no longer process your data, unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the data processing or the data processing serves to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
The objection does not have to occur in any specific form and should be sent directly to our data protection team if possible. This can be done via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or with the suffix “data protection” to our postal address.
