When "we" or "us" is used in this Privacy Policy, it refers to SWARCO AG and/or its affiliated companies of the SWARCO Group.


This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you, as an interested party and user of our online event series, about our handling of the collection, use and disclosure of personal data.

The responsible legal person for the processing of personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 (7) GDPR is SWARCO AG and/or the respective affiliated company of the SWARCO Group.

Registration for series of webinars

Purpose of data processing/legal basis:

To register for our webinar series, we need your name, email address and the name of the company you work for.

We will use your data exclusively for the purpose of completing your registration and enabling your participation in the webinars, as well as to inform you after a webinar as soon as the video is available on our website. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 a), as well as f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our company has a legitimate interest in data processing in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO because we naturally want to be informed about who is making use of our webinar offer.

Storage duration/ Criteria for defining the storage duration:

In principle, we store your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. In this case your data will be deleted by us at the latest 90 days after the last webinar. The 90 days-storage period is due to the fact that it may happen that you could contact us again after a webinar about the content or we contact you to give further information on the webinar. Experience has shown that, as a rule, after 90 days, there are no more queries about our answers.

Your rights

Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR):

Pursuant to Art. 15 para. 1 GDPR, you have the right, to request confirmation as to whether personal data relating to you are processed and, if this is the case, to receive information about the personal data we hold about you as well as the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

Right to rectification and erasure (Articles 16 and 17 GDPR):

In addition, you have the right to have modify, correct or in general amend your personal information (Art. 16 GDPR).
Furthermore, you have the right to request the deletion of personal data concerning you (e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued) if the conditions set out in Art. 17 GDPR are met.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing (Art. 18 GDPR) of your personal data if one of the conditions set out in Art. 18 GDPR is fulfilled, e.g. if you have objected to the processing, for the duration of any examination of our right to data processing or in the event that personal data are no longer required for processing purposes but must continue to be reserved for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

A restriction on the processing means that the data in question may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, to protect the rights of another person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR):

If automated data processing is based on your consent or processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that take place at your request, you have the right to receive the personal data you have provided and which concerns you in a structured, current and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided. You also have the right to request the direct transmission of this data by us to a third party if this is technically feasible.

Right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR):

If the data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling reasons worthy of protection for further processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right of withdrawal (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR):

If the data processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a) or Art. 9 para. 2 a) GDPR, you can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. However, such withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
