Legal Obligation:

Certain data are processed by us to comply with legal or regulatory obligations that apply to us. For example, within the context of tax and accounting obligations, security requirements for organized events, or in the field of data protection.


Necessary for the Performance of a Contract:

Certain data are processed by us because it is necessary for entering into, performing, or terminating an agreement with you as the data subject. For example, for contacting, scheduling, responding to a request, or requesting information in connection with the use of our services, as well as for the actual execution of the contractual assignment within the scope of our main activity, in order to provide or receive our services.


Legitimate Interest:

Certain data are processed by us based on our legitimate interests, which, in specific cases, outweigh any potential detriment to your rights. These interests include:

  • Conducting market research and analysis to improve our events and services.
  • For our marketing purposes toward existing customers, providing information about offers, concerts, and other events. This may include emails with concert information or email alerts about similar events.
  • Ensuring your safety and that of other attendees during our events.
  • Preventing or detecting unlawful behavior, protecting or enforcing our legal rights, or in other cases permitted by law.



Certain data are processed by us based on your consent. For example, for promoting our activities for marketing purposes to non-customers, using analytical, marketing, and social media cookies, sharing data with partner companies, and subscribing to our newsletters. Medical data, such as accessibility requirements for an event, are processed only with your consent. Data of job applicants after the recruitment process will only be retained with their consent.



6. Source of Data

Most of the data we process from you have been obtained directly from you. Within the scope of our services, it is possible that we obtain data from you through external service providers or public sources.



7. With whom do we share your data?

We do not share your data with third parties unless strictly necessary for the purposes mentioned above or when required by law.


We may share your data within the Greenhouse Talent group and all companies affiliated with this group.


Where necessary, we rely on external service providers (processors) to support our operational purposes, such as managing our websites and IT systems. These external service providers may, if necessary, perform certain data processing on our behalf. We will only share your data with these external service providers to the extent necessary for the respective purpose. They may not use the data for other purposes. Furthermore, these service providers are contractually bound to ensure the confidentiality of your data through a "processor agreement" that has been entered into with these parties.


Specifically, this means that, to the extent relevant in your situation, we may share your data with the following third parties for the following purposes, with these third parties sometimes acting as processors on our behalf:


Co-promoters, event partners, partner companies, concert venues, security companies that organize or provide specific services at an event or for merchandising purposes;

  • Postal companies, transport, and delivery companies if we need to send something to you by post;
  • Payment service providers if we receive payments from you, or vice versa;
  • External representatives and consultants or any other parties involved in our main or ancillary activities;
  • Processors who assist us in the IT field in operating our organization, with a view to safe and efficient digital data management within our organization;
  • Government bodies, judicial authorities, and practitioners of regulated professions such as accountants and lawyers, for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations and defending our interests, as required.


It is possible that general group data may be passed on to concert halls or other venues where our events take place, in order to create a demographic report. This data is anonymized and cannot be linked back to you.



8.How long do we retain your data?

We do not retain your data for longer than necessary for the purpose for which the data was collected or processed. Since the period for which data can be retained depends on the purposes for which the data was collected, the storage period may vary in each situation. Sometimes, specific legislation may require us to retain data for a certain period. Our retention periods are always based on legal requirements and a balance of your rights and expectations with what is useful and necessary to fulfill the purposes. After the retention period expires, your data will be deleted or anonymized.



9. Where do we store your data and how is it protected?

We implement appropriate security measures on a technical and organizational level to prevent, within the scope of our activities, the destruction, loss, falsification, alteration, unauthorized access, or unlawful disclosure to third parties, as well as any other unauthorized processing of this data.


We also ensure that the processors we rely on take appropriate security measures to minimize the risk of incidents.


If your data is processed outside the European Economic Area (EEA) when using specific services or software tools, this will only be done in/from countries that the European Commission has confirmed as providing an adequate level of protection for your data, or measures will be taken to ensure the lawful processing of your data in these third countries.
