In all other cases, the legal basis for the processing operations is Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

III. Who will receive my data?
We will make the information you provide available to other alumni, as well as selected employees of the Roland Berger Group via password-protected access to our alumni database. We offer visibility settings that allow you to choose what information you share publicly. These personal settings can be changed at any time. As members of our network, you and your former colleagues as well as other alumni can use publicly shared information to stay in touch, maintain a network, utilize business contacts, establish business relationships with other alumni, and grow your ongoing careers.
You will also be able to search and respond to job listings advertised by other alumni, Roland Berger offices, hiring companies, or executive search companies in our database. Roland Berger may correspondingly make your personal data available to HR departments of other companies or offices of the Roland Berger Group in accordance with this Privacy Notice. In addition, we may also make your data available to hiring companies or executive search companies. We ensure that your personal data is treated strictly confidentially within the Roland Berger Group and only used for the above-mentioned purposes. In case of such an intra group data sharing, and with respect to any data processing operation according to this Alumni Data Protection Notice, you can contact and enforce your rights against Roland Berger under the contact details given above under I. If your personal data is transferred to a country outside European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) which is not subject to a comparable level of data protection, we will ensure that the Group companies and offices have appropriate guarantees in place (such as the EU standard contract clauses). A copy of the guarantees is available here.
Access to personal data is also technically possible for service providers and contract partners that we use to operate our IT systems. These external providers are obliged to use your personal data only to provide the services requested by us or otherwise in accordance with our instructions. Apart from these transmissions, your personal data will not be disclosed or passed on to third parties.

IV. How long will you retain my data?
We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. If the data are no longer required for these obligations, they are regularly deleted, unless their temporary further processing is required for legal reasons. Temporary processing may be necessary, for example, due to social security and tax regulations.

Every Alumni has the following rights:
• Right of access, Article 15 GDPR
• Right to rectification, Article 16 GDPR
• Right to erasure, Article 17 GDPR
• Right to restriction of processing, Article 18 GDPR
• Right to data portability, Article 20 GDPR

In addition, you can revoke any potentially given consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future by sending an email to dataprotection@rolandberger.com or by contacting us via the contact details given above under I.
