3. Data Collection on our Website

We only process data from you that you actively provide on the website (e.g., by filling out forms, subscribing to newsletters, etc.) or that you automatically provide when using our services. Your data is processed exclusively by us and is generally not sold, lent, or disclosed to third parties.

If we use external service providers in the processing of your personal data, this is done within the scope of a so-called order processing, where we as the client are authorized to issue instructions to our contractor. For the operation of our website, we use an external service provider for hosting. We host our website with the external service provider Hostingwerk (Feyer Media GmbH, Eibenweg 42, 42111 Wuppertal, Germany) with data centers in Germany. If additional external service providers are used for individual processing operations, they will be named there.

We generally do not transfer data to third countries and have no plans to do so. We will inform you about exceptions to this principle in the processing described below. Any data transfer to third countries will then be based on the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.

4. Membership Application

The members of the association are managed through the external service provider MGVO (IBB Solutions, Akazienstr. 23, 74924 Neckarbischofsheim, Germany).

In the context of the membership relationship, the association processes the following data: gender, first name, last name, date of birth, address (street, house number, postal code, city), bank details, telephone number, and email address. Additional data such as entry date or affiliation with departments can be optionally collected.

The data of association members are collected for association management purposes (to identify association members, communicate with them, and collect membership fees). For security reasons, a log is also written when creating a membership application, which contains the IP address. Processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller as described above (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Storage Duration

The log written when creating the membership application is kept for one week and then automatically deleted. The storage of a member's data is not limited in time.

7. Newsletter

To keep association members informed about general meetings, course offerings, events, etc., there is an association newsletter that can be subscribed to upon joining the association.

To stay updated on news about the BB-Dancecamp, there is the BBDC newsletter. You can subscribe to the BBDC newsletter by filling out and submitting a newsletter registration form on our website. Only the email address is required for registration. For the execution and verification of newsletter registrations, we use a double opt-in procedure. Registration takes place in several steps. First, you sign up for the newsletter on our website. You will then receive an email from us at the email address you provided. With this email, we ask you to confirm that you have actually subscribed to the newsletter and wish to receive it. Confirmation is done by clicking on a confirmation link in the email. Only after successful confirmation will we add you to the BBDC newsletter distribution list and send you emails in the future. When registering via double opt-in, Mailjet records the email address, date, IP address, and user agent. The BBDC newsletter can be unsubscribed by clicking the unsubscribe link in any of the newsletters. When unsubscribing from the newsletter, the contact is not deleted, but only the status is changed to prevent future emails.

We use the external service provider Mailjet (Mailjet GmbH, Alt-Moabit 2, 10557 Berlin, Germany) for newsletter delivery. The data you enter for newsletter subscription purposes is stored on Mailjet's servers.

Purpose & Legal Basis

The storage of the email address is carried out to provide the newsletter function. Processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Your consent is voluntary. The collection and storage of email addresses, dates, IP addresses, and user agents during newsletter registration serve to document consents granted and protect against abusive entry of email addresses. Processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller as described above (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Storage Duration

If you do not confirm your newsletter subscription with the corresponding confirmation email, your data will be automatically deleted within 30 days. The storage of data after successful newsletter registration is not limited in time.

To register for a course, name, email address, role (leader/follower), and the selected course are collected. The storage of this information is necessary to regulate the number of participants in a course and achieve a balanced ratio between leaders and followers. Processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller as described above (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Storage Duration

The storage of data for course registration is not limited in time.

We operate Matomo without the use of cookies and without so-called fingerprinting. Within the framework of web analysis using Matomo, the IP address is only truncated to the last six digits, making it impossible to associate. The data collected by Matomo is not used for any other purpose or merged with other data. The statistics created by Matomo include, in particular, the number of users visiting the website, the country of access, which subpages are accessed, and how visitors reach our website via links or search terms. The collected information is transmitted to our server and stored there alone. There is no disclosure to third parties.

Sentry is a tool used by developers to monitor and resolve crashes in the program code in real-time. The tool provides comprehensive context for all identified errors, ensuring high transparency of errors.

Purpose & Legal Basis

Sentry assists us in the technical improvement and ensuring the stability of our website. It also helps us identify security vulnerabilities, thus contributing to data protection and the security of potential member data. Processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller as described above (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Storage Duration

11. Social Networks

Our website does not use so-called plugins from social networks.

There is no data transmission to social networks or platforms with the integration of logos. Clicking on one of the logos will simply redirect you to the external website of the respective social network.

12. Photo und Video Recordings during Public Events

During our events, photo and video recordings are taken to capture special moments and the atmosphere. It is possible that we may later publish these images and videos on various platforms such as websites, press releases, newsletters, brochures, and printed materials to report on and promote the event. This practice complies with data protection regulations according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in documenting and promoting the event. Since the event is public, we assume that you do not have a fundamental issue with photos and videos being taken for these purposes. However, we assure you that we handle these recordings carefully and respect your privacy. If you have any concerns, we are available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns.

13. Your Rights
