What is personal data?

Data is “personally identifiable” when it can be associated with you and provides information about your behavior or characteristics. Of course, this includes your name, address or postal address; as well as your telephone number or e-mail address, but also e.g. information about your potential interests, provided that this information can be attributed to you personally, directly or indirectly.

Our supervisory authority is the National Data Protection Commission (CNPD). You can address to it your complaint regarding the processing of your data by the OGBL.


Duration of storage and deletion

We delete the data of outgoing members after the termination of membership, insofar as we no longer need to archive them to fulfill their own legal obligations under Article 6, paragraph 1 c). of the GDMP, or to grant benefits exceeding the term of membership in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1 b). of the GDMP, or to preserve legitimate interests.

We will delete the data of those who have contacted us with an interest in joining 3 months after the last contact.

Data that we have collected in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1 a) or article 9, paragraph 2 a) of the GDMPR, will be deleted immediately after notification of revocation of your consent, unless we are legally required or it is in our legitimate interests to continue to archive the data until the expiry of the retention periods.

Retention periods generally end 5 years after the end of the year in which the purpose of the processing has ceased.


Processing of data for special purposes for non-members and members

If you are a member of the press, we register your e-mail address to maintain contact. We provide you with information unless you tell us that you no longer wish to do so.


Data processing: member services

We provide a range of services to our members. In particular, to identify and advise you as a member who wishes to benefit from the service and to ensure the necessary correspondence with you. This includes in particular your contact details, such as postal address and telephone number, but also the e-mail address for faster contact, in particular to be able to comply with legal deadlines.

In addition, this includes data on the respective legal relationship, which is collected in the corresponding application form.

This data is collected, processed and used to the extent necessary to enforce your rights. If necessary, it is then passed on to external bodies, such as lawyers, etc.

Finally, in many cases of entitlement to services, we also require the member’s bank details in order to make payments. This is also required as soon as the member works on a voluntary basis for the OGBL and receives reimbursement for the amounts paid (e.g. travel expenses).

This data will be stored for 5 years after the conclusion of the business, based on the retention obligations under tax law, and then deleted.

If you send us unsolicited information about your personal data, it will be deleted once your case has been resolved. This is only different if we have a legitimate interest in continuing storage.
