Data protection

We are very pleased about your interest in our college. Data protection is particularly important to the management of Touro Berlin. It is generally possible to use the Touro Berlin website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use our college's special services via our website, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Touro Berlin.

Furthermore, data subjects are informed about the rights to which they are entitled using this data protection declaration.

Touro Berlin, as the controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website.

The anonymous data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

  1. b) Cookies

 

Your browser also stores so-called cookies. Cookies are files that can be stored by the provider of a website in the directory of the browser program on the user's computer. These files contain text information and can be read again by the provider when the page is accessed again. The provider can use these cookies, for example, to always deliver pages in the language chosen by the user.

 

The storage of cookies can be switched off or given an expiry time in your browser settings. However, by deactivating cookies, some functions that are controlled via cookies can only be used to a limited extent or not at all.

 

The Touro Berlin website uses cookies for the following purposes:

  • Recognition of a user during a session in order to be able to assign language selection and other personalized settings (e.g. with a session cookie).

  1. d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to request that the person responsible delete the personal data concerning him or her immediately if one of the following reasons applies and if the processing is not necessary:

 

The personal data was collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.


The data subject revokes their consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR or Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.


The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (2) of the GDPR processing.


The personal data was processed unlawfully.


The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

The management of Touro Berlin will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.


The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.


The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.


The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 Paragraph 1 of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.


If one of the above mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Touro Berlin, he or she can at any time contact the management who will initiate the restriction of processing.

 

  1. f) Right to data portability

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which the data subject has provided to a person responsible, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of the GDPR or Article 9 Paragraph 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or is carried out in the exercise of official authority, which has been transferred to the person responsible.

 

Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data portability in accordance with Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one person responsible to another person responsible, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that This does not affect the rights and freedoms of other people.

 

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject can contact the management of Touro Berlin at any time.

 

  1. g) Right to object

 

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter e or f GDPR, to lodge an objection. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

 

Touro Berlin will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

 

If Touro Berlin processes personal data in order to conduct direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to Touro Berlin for processing for direct advertising purposes, Touro Berlin will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

 

In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her by Touro Berlin for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) of the GDPR to lodge an objection, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task carried out in the public interest.

 

To exercise the right to object, the data subject can contact the management of Touro Berlin. Furthermore, in connection with the use of information society services, the data subject is free, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

 

  1. h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

 

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that legislation appropriates measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.

 

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, the management of Touro Berlin shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well to protect the legitimate interests of the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the person responsible, to express one's own point of view and to challenge the decision.

 

If the data subject would like to assert rights with regard to automated decisions, they can contact the management of Touro Berlin at any time.

 

  1. i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

 

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislature to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

 

If the data subject would like to exercise their right to revoke their consent, they can contact the management of Touro Berlin at any time.

 

     6. Data protection for applications and the application process

 

The person responsible for processing collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. Processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the person responsible for processing electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If the person responsible for processing concludes a contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal regulations. If the person responsible for processing does not conclude a contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted promptly after the rejection decision is announced, provided that deletion does not conflict with other legitimate interests of the person responsible for processing. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

 

     7. Legal basis for processing

 

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our college as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for attending college or for the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about a college visit. If our college is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a student were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our college or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh them. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a member or customer of the college (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

     8. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees.

 

 

     9. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the relevant data will be routinely deleted unless it is no longer required to fulfill the contract or initiate a contract.

 

     10. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

 

We would like to clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. Senate regulations, school law) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our college enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded.

 

     11. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible university, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
