Data protection information pursuant to Article 13, 14 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
I. Name and contact details of the responsible person
The following body is responsible for this website in accordance with Article 4 No. 7 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
c/o Tulku Pema Tharchhen Lama
Phone: 00977 9842897784 (Serlo Gonpa office contact)
II. General information
1. Why is there this information?
The legislator obliges us to inform data subjects about the processing of their personal data in accordance with Article 13 and Article 14 of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR). In the following you will be informed to what extent we will process your personal data as the "data controller" and which rights you are entitled to as the "data subject".
As a matter of principle, we do not process any personal data of data subjects unless processing is permitted by law ("legal basis"). A declaration of consent given by you voluntarily and after prior notification may also constitute a legal basis for the processing of your personal data.
2. What is personal data and who is affected?
According to Article 4 No. 1 GDPR, "personal data" means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"); a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special characteristics which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person, is regarded as identifiable. There are many reasons why you should could be a data subject to us for whose personal data we are responsible. For example, you are a data subject as a user of our websites, sender and recipient of letters, e-mails or other communications, caller and called party, employee, customer, supplier or other cooperation partner.
3. What are the legal bases?
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for processing personal data, Article 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. With the processing of personal data, which is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, whose contracting party is the person concerned, Article 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as a legal basis. This applies also to processing procedures, which are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures on inquiry of the person concerned. As far as a processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our association is subject, Article 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis. For the case that vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person make a processing of personal data necessary, Article 6 Para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as a legal basis. If the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our association or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, then Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing.
4. How long are personal data stored and/or when deleted?
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. A storage can take place beyond that, if this is specified by the European or national legislator in Union-legal regulations, laws or other regulations, after which we are obligated to the storage of the personal data. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires; unless further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
5. Which technical and organizational measures are used?
Ensuring data security is of particular importance to us. We therefore employ appropriate technical and organizational measures, in particular to protect your personal data from the dangers of data transmission and to protect it against third parties gaining knowledge. Our data security measures are checked and adapted in accordance with the current state of the Article
6. What rights do I have as a person concerned?
Insofar as personal data about you or a third party is processed by us as the "responsible person", this person is entitled to the following rights: rights to information, correction, blocking and deletion as well as revocation of your consent or objection, rights in automated processing and profiling and you have a right of complaint to the supervisory authority.

6.5 Right to limitation: In accordance with Article 18 GDPR, you have the right to request the limitation of the processing of your personal data if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to delete it and we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 GDPR.
6.6 Right to data transfer: In accordance with Article 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request transfer to another responsible party.
6.7 Right of complaint: You may complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 GDPR. As a rule you can turn for this to the supervisory authority of your usual residence or workplace or the seat of the responsible person.
