In the event of a positive review of your registration application, you will conclude a contract with the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (German Dance Association) regarding the inclusion of your data in its data collection. Please read the Agreement on Data Protection for graduates carefully and confirm them by a click:

Archiving and Publication of the Name

Knowing the data and the purpose of their processing, I consent to the following

beyond the duration of this agreement and also beyond the period covered by the DIS-TANZ-START funding programme, the related communication and (retention) obligations (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR).

Notice and Consent to Data Transfer to the Microsoft Corporation

For the internal processing of the registration application, unfortunately, the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (German Dance Association) can currently only use products and services of the Microsoft Corporation (variants of the Microsoft 365 service) based in the USA. Although Microsoft has included the EU Commission's standard contractual clauses in the licence agreements, the European Court of Justice considers the USA to have an insufficient level of data protection according to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US courts, US law enforcement agencies and national security agencies in accordance with its laws for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without redress. When you click "Yes", you consent to the processing of your personal data in the USA in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1, S.1, lit. a GDPR.

As soon as you click on "Continue", you will receive a link by e-mail to verify your e-mail address.
