2.2 Why do we process your data (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

This Notice informs you of the purposes for which we process your data, and of the legal bases for the processing.

2.2.1. For the performance of contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) 

We process your personal data for the preparation, implementation and follow-up of the contest for emerging talent in Fashion & Design, the FRANKfurtstyleaward.

This concerns, in particular

  • The selection of finalists by a jury
  • Notification of the selected finalists
  • Invitation of the finalists to a gala
  • Presentation of prizes

2.2.2 Based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR)

If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data, that consent is the legal basis for the processing specified therein.

This relates, in particular, to

  • Collection and storage of further personal data
  • Disclosure of your data to media partners

You may at any time revoke your consent with future effect. This also applies to declarations of consent given by you to us before the GDPR came into force, i.e. prior to 25 May 2018. We hereby inform you that the withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out based on consent before its withdrawal.

2.2.3 In the course of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR)

We may also use your data based on a balancing of interests, for the purposes of our legitimate interests or those of third parties. This is done, for example, for the following purposes:

  • Maintenance of a candidate database or a candidate network
  • Promotion of the candidates and the contest

Our interest in the processing derives from its respective purposes and is otherwise of a commercial nature. Where and to the extent possible and appropriate, we process your data in pseudonymised or anonymised form.

2.2.3. Based on legal requirements (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR)

We are subject to various legal obligations, such as, for example, statutory commercial retention and documentation obligations (under the German Commercial Code [German acronym: HGB], the German Criminal Code [German acronym: StGB] or the Fiscal Code [German acronym: AO]).

3. Disclosure of data to third parties

Where personal data are disclosed, processing is also carried out within the meaning of point 2, above. At this point, however, we would like to inform you separately about disclosure of data to third parties. The protection of your personal data is particularly important to us. For this reason, we are especially careful when disclosing your data to third parties.

Transfer of your personal data to third parties usually takes place for the following purposes.

  • Processors with which we have concluded an agreement in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR
  • Payment (e.g. payment service providers)
  • Accounting (e.g. tax consultants)
  • Legal disputes (e.g. lawyers)
  • Communication platforms (e.g. e-mail, WhatsApp or other messenger services)
  • Presenting and/or administering prizes, where these are provided by third parties

4. Erasure

Data are erased once they are no longer required for the purpose of the processing, unless we are bound by retention and documentation obligations under tax and commercial law (under the HGB, StGB or AO) specifying a longer storage period, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (1) (c) GDPR; or unless you have consented to further storage in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR.

5. Rights of the data subject

  • to request the rectification (where incorrect) or completion of your personal data stored by us, pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR;
  • to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us, pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, once those data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed, and where the processing is not necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • to request the restriction of processing of your personal data, pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, should you contest the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful but you oppose their erasure, if we no longer require the data but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR;
  • to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request that those data be transferred to another Controller, pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, and
