Within the context of the purposes described herein, personal data are transmitted to service providers who work for us and, in particular, support us in providing services. In addition to their legal obligation to comply with all data protection regulations, these service providers are bound by us to additional contractual provisions for data protection. Generally, this includes an obligation as processors according to Art. 28 para. 3 GDPR.

We only do this within the context of statutory data protection requirements for transmission in non-member states, if it is thereby ensured that the recipient of the data guarantees appropriate data protection standards within the meaning of Chapter V of the GDPR and no other interests that require protection militate against the transmission of data.

You may request information at no cost on the data stored by Stiftung Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe regarding your person and - insofar as there are statutory requirements - their correction, deletion and the restriction of the processing of these data.

Whether and to what extent these rights exist in an individual case and what conditions apply thereto follow from the law, in particular the GDPR. In addition, the GDPR grants you a right to the transfer of data under certain circumstances. If you have granted consent with regard to data protection law, you may revoke this at any time with future effect. Further, you have the right to file a complaint with the responsible data protection supervisory authority. However, if you have questions or complaints regarding data protection at Stiftung Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe, we recommend that you first contact our Data Protection Officer.
In order to exercise these rights and for other questions on data protection, please contact our internal Data Protection Officer (see no. 1).
