Image / film recordings at events

During our events, images/film recordings are made by us or on our behalf. This processing of personal data is based on a legitimate interest (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

The controller for data processing under data protection law is DIZ | Digitales Innovationszentrum GmbH.


The above-mentioned recordings are made available to the public (media, online publications, etc.) as part of our public relations and marketing activities and are also made available internally to employees. We may use selected service providers for this purpose. We would like to publish photos on social networks, among others. With a few exceptions, these have their server locations in the USA. There is no adequacy decision for the USA. However, all social networks known to us are certified in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield. A list of certified companies can be viewed at

Right to object

As we take the photos on the basis of a legitimate interest, you have the right to object (pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR). If there are reasons arising from your particular situation that speak against the described use of your image, you can object to this on these grounds. In this case, please write to us with these reasons. We will examine them. If necessary, we will also check whether there are compelling reasons that conflict with your right to object. If we comply with your right to object, we will make you unrecognizable in images that allow your person to be identified, remove you or delete the images completely.
