2 Collection and use of personal data

2.1 For the purpose of admission and administration of members of CiS e.V.


We collect, store and process your personal data in order to process your application for membership and the modalities (e.g. events of CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH, events CiS e.V., mention on homepage, mention in the annual report CiS e.V., on Rollup CiS e.V., flyer CiS e.V.) during your membership.

The collection and use of personal data of our members takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

We process the following data in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a) and b) of the EU GDPR on the basis of your consent by binding registration for the event:

  • Preparation of the list of participants and name tags (surname, first name, title, name of the company/institution)

  • event management
  • Invoicing (name, first name, title, email address, telephone number, billing address/company address)
  • Preparation of certificates of participation (surname, first name, title, company)



3 Passing on of personal data to third parties

In order to be able to offer you our services on the basis of our contractual obligations or our legitimate interests, it is necessary that we pass on your personal data to our subsidiary, the CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH for internal administrative purposes. In order to fully comply with the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities, we have concluded an order processing agreement with the CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH.

In addition, we only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the context of contract processing, for example to the credit institution commissioned to process payments.
A further transmission of the data will not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.


4 Applicable legal bases

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPRserves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our CiS e.V. is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPRserves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
