Data Privacy Information for Citizens in the European Union

The legal basis for the handling of your personal data results from the fact that processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract. In case your application to the Bayer G4A Generator program is rejected, the legal basis for further processing of your personal data results from our legitimate interest to stay in contact with potential business partners.

Your personal data may be transferred to countries for which the European Commission has not decided that it ensures an adequate level of data protection. Due to the absence of an adequacy decision and respective safeguards, there are certain risks of the transfer, as your personal data is not subject to the protection standards as under European Law.

Your personal data will be stored for as long as it is required to fulfill the above described purposes but no longer than 7 years.

You have the right to request from us information about your personal data, access to and rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing concerning you or to object to processing as well as the right to data portability. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority.
