The legal basis for processing your personal information in asserting your rights as a data subject follows from Art. 6 (1) point c GDPR, “Complying with a legal obligation”.

Am I Obligated to Provide Data?

In order to assert your rights as a data subject, it may be necessary that you provide information to Bertelsmann and/or its subsidiaries pertaining to your person and the specific information that has been processed. Without providing this information, Bertelsmann and/or its subsidiaries are not able to cater to your rights as a data subject.

Who Receives My Data?

We use service providers (contract processors) who are bound by instructions and who only have ac-cess to your data to the extent and for the period necessary for the provision of the services. If these service providers process your data outside the European Union, this may result in your data being transferred to a country which does not guarantee the same data protection standard as the European Union. However, such a level of data protection can be guaranteed with a suitable guarantee. When selecting service providers, Arvato Systems takes the necessary steps to contractually ensure an equiv-alent level of data protection.
