Thank you for your interest in our work. Data protection is of great importance to the management of our Orchestra’s Conductor Competition. The Internet pages of the Orchestra’s Conductor Competition can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of our company's special services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned. The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Orchestra’s Conductor Competition. By means of this data protection declaration, the competition management would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration. The Geros Association, as office of the Orchestra’s Conductor Competition, as the controller, has implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone or email:
Phone: +40 771 471 429;
The data processing will be carried out in compliance with the provisions of the GDPR and the Competition Regulations.
The data protection declaration uses the terminology of the European directives and regulations employed when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
In this data protection declaration we use the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data is all information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). A natural person is regarded as identifiable if they can be directly or indirectly identified, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of such natural person.
b) Data subject
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the processing controller.
Processing is any process carried out with or without the help of automation or any such series of processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organization, ordering, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of saved personal data with the aim to restrict their further processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate or to predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, concerning in particular their work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts or change of domicile.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be identified or assigned to a specific natural person.
g) Controller or processing controller
The person responsible for the processing is the natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are specified by Union law or the law of the member states, the person responsible or the specific criteria for his appointment can be provided for in accordance with Union law or the law of the member states.
Processor is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other body that provides the processing of personal data processed on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation according to Union law or the law of the member states are not considered recipients.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other body apart from the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is the voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of will in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative action with which the data subject indicates that they agree to the processing of their personal data.
2. What personal data do we process?
Personal data and contact details such as: name and surname, home / residence address; cell phone number; email address.
Payment details such as: billing address; bank account or bank card number / IBAN code; name and surname of the holder of the bank account or bank card
Professional details from the CV.
Opinions and views (may include sensitive data), such as: any opinions and views you provide to us, or any opinions and views you publicly post about us on social media or that you share on social media or other public channels.
Online identification data regarding the I.P. address, the MAC number of the motherboard, processed only when accessing the site. For more details on how data is processed through cookies, please visit this link.
Photo/video images - required in the selection process but also images recorded or transmitted live or recorded, during the competition tests.
Copy of ID card - to be able to identify the person
3. Why do we process this data?
The purpose of the processing is to organize, produce and promote the Orchestra’s Conductor Competition, by the Geros Association in collaboration with a chosen Philharmonic Orchestra for every edition.
In this regard, we process data on:
- Accessing the website http://www.orchestrasconductor.com/. The collection is carried out according to the Cookies Policy, based on your consent.
- Registration and conduct of competition tests – data processing is performed based on the provisions of art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b), respectively the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract to which the data subject is a party or to take steps at the request of the data subject before concluding a contract;
- Promoting events – data processing will be done based on the legitimate interest of the organizer but also based on the contractual relationship between the participant and the organizer.
- Fulfilling our legal obligations regarding archiving, accounting, security, record keeping and other obligations imposed on us by law - art. 6 para. 1 letter c) of the GDPR
- Financial and commercial management – for this purpose, data generated as a result of contractual relations with sponsors, commercial contracts, records regarding the awarding of prizes, collection of participation fees, issuance of supporting documents, organization of accounting and reporting required by applicable law are processed. This processing is based on art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) of the GDPR - the processing is carried out as a result of the observance of a legal provision but also on the legitimate interest (art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f) regarding the internal organization of the activity or the settlement of disputes.
4. Legal basis for the processing
Article 6 I lit. a (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b (GDPR). The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c (GDPR). In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d (GDPR). Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f (GDPR). Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
5. To whom will we disclose your data?
The Orchestra’s Conductor Competition is a public event that will be promoted and followed primarily through social media channels (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) but also through media partners.
For this reason, the data of the participants regarding the name and surname, but also the image and the video recordings will be public.
In addition, personal data, depending on the purpose of the processing, are disclosed to:
Collaborators - associated operators - in order to carry out a commercial contract in which you are a party or prior to it. For example, a partner like a Philharmonic Orchestra will have access to the data related to the name and surname of the participant, the photo image and the video recordings with which he participated in the contest.
Partner sites - by accessing links to social networks or by participating in various actions and contests held on this type of platform. Our platform may provide links to websites that we do not control. Once you click on a third-party link, you'll be directed to a third-party website. If you visit any of these connected websites, you should review their privacy policies. We are not responsible for the policies and practices of other sites and we do not assume any responsibility for the content, privacy policies and disclosures or practices of third-party websites or services.

Any relevant person, agency or court in Romania or in another state - to the extent necessary to establish, exercise or defend our right in court.
Our partners with whom we have contractual relations - providers of marketing services, SEO, design, etc.
6. To whom and under what conditions will we transfer your data to a third country or international organization?
Except for the images from the competition that will be made public, we do not transfer or intend to transfer your personal data or any part of it to other companies, organizations or individuals in third countries or to international organizations.
If we need to transfer your data to any of the above destinations, we will send you a new information note in advance.
7. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
We will store your data for a period of 6 months to 11 years (in the case of accounting documents).
The storage period of the identity card image is 90 days from the end of the pre-selections, except for the documents of the winners which are kept for 10 years, part of the accounting documents required by the legislator.
The photo and video images of the participants will be stored for 3 years from the end of the competition, and for the finalists for the entire life of this type of competition and 5 years from the end of it. As the images will be published on sites with unrestricted public access, we cannot guarantee that they will not be duplicated without our permission or distributed on other platforms, including media. At the end of the storage period, we will only be able to delete images and records on our servers or on the servers we have access to.

The employee will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data have been made public by the management of the Orchestra’s Conductor Competition and we, as the data controller, are obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Paragraph 1 (GDPR), we will take appropriate measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs of a technical nature, in order to inform other data processors who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data from these other data processors, insofar as the processing is not necessary.

9. Data protection in applications and in the application process
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website, to the person responsible for processing. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant or extends an invitation to the competition, the data provided will be stored for the purpose of conducting the competition in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant or if the applicant is not invited to the competition, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).
10. Data security
In order to ensure the security of personal data, in particular regarding the processing, storage, unauthorized access and unauthorized modification, disclosure or destruction, we have implemented the following technical and organizational measures:
Dedicated policies. We adopt and review our customers' and others' data processing practices and policies, including electronic and security measures, to protect our unauthorized access systems and other potential security threats. We are constantly reviewing how we apply our personal data protection policies and how we comply with data protection law.
Data minimization. We have made sure that your personal data that we process is limited to what is necessary, appropriate and relevant for the purposes stated in this note.
Restrict access to data. We strictly restrict access to personal data that we process to employees, collaborators and others who need to access it in order to process it for us. All these companies and individuals are subject to strict obligations of confidentiality and we will not hesitate to hold them accountable and stop working with them if they do not take the protection of your data and the privacy of others very seriously.
Ensuring the accuracy of your data. We may from time to time ask you to confirm the accuracy and / or timeliness of personal data about your data that we process.
Staff training. We constantly train and test our employees and collaborators on the legislation and best practices in the field of personal data processing.
Data anonymization. Where possible and appropriate to our business, we anonymize / pseudo-anonymize the personal data we process so that we can no longer identify the persons to whom it relates.
Control of our service providers. We introduce in the contracts with those who process for us (authorized persons) or together with us (other operators - associated operators) clauses for ensuring the protection of the data we process; this protection goes at least to the minimum required by law.
While we take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of your data, we cannot guarantee the absence of any breach of security or the impossibility to penetrate security systems. In the unfortunate and unlikely event that such a breach occurs, we will follow the legal procedures to limit the effects and inform the data subjects.
11. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We explain to you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
12. Name and address of the person responsible for processing
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is Mr. Emil Mailat:
You can also contact your local data protection authority if you have questions or complaints
