These data are processed by us for the following purposes:
The statutory basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest is derived from the purposes of data recording listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the recorded data in order to draw conclusions with respect to your person.
The majority of browsers are configured to accept cookies by default. You can however configure your browser not to save cookies, or to inform you whenever cookies are sent.

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to provide secure transmission of confidential content. An encrypted connection is indicated by “https://” and the padlock symbol in the address line of your browser. SSL encryption prevents third parties from reading the data that you transmit to us.
The information you provide is stored on particularly secure servers in Germany. It is accessible only to a small number of persons with special authorization who have the task of maintaining the servers. We have concluded a job-processing contract with our server hosting provider.
Our online resources contain links to other websites. We have no influence over whether the operators of these sites observe the data security legislation. We cannot therefore accept any liability for links or pages linked to.
Should you use the order form to request information materials, we require your name and address. This information is used solely to process your order. Your data are deleted once your order has been processed.
Should you use our order form to request the print edition of the KANBrief, we relay your data to the service provider responsible for distributing it.

Registering for KAN events
We hold events on a regular basis. Online registration is required for attendance at the event and for organizational purposes. When registering, you provide us with data required for organization of the event. These data include:
Your name, contact information, hotel reservation (if applicable), booking of meals, information on your employer and vocational activity, and your comments.
These data are all deleted once the organizational modalities of the event have been completed, unless you explicitly consented to receive further information from us on the subject to which the event relates.
As a rule, we use your personal information only within the Commission for OH&S and Standardization (KAN). We do not pass your data on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We shall pass your data to bodies who are authorized to have access to it in cases where we are obliged to do so by statutory provisions or in response to a court order. We cannot accept any liability for abuse by third parties.
The criterion for the duration for which personal data are stored is the relevant statutory retention period. The data concerned are routinely deleted at the end of this period, unless they continue to be required for the negotiation or completion of contracts.
KANMail, our free newsletter appearing approximately every six weeks, contains information on occupational safety and health and standardization. Should you wish to receive the KANMail, you must provide us with an e-mail address. No other data are collected. You can unsubscribe from the KANMail from within the newsletter itself or revoke your consent at any time by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
