Data protection

This data privacy statement explains how personal data (‘data’) provided by you and collected by Magirus GmbH (‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘the company’) via this website are handled in compliance with the relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. We are committed to protecting and to respecting your private sphere.



Data may be collected, processed and stored in the following ways:

a. Data that you provide us through your participation in the CDM Award 2018 competition for the ‘National Firefighting Team of the Year’, the ‘International Firefighting Team of the Year’ or the ‘Special Award for Social Engagement’ (such mandatory information entered on the registration form, including your surname, given name, contact details, professional information and voluntary information such as title and telephone number);

b. Browsing data (e.g., IP address, location, country, time of navigation, time of access) or information generated through your interaction with our website;

Such data are usually provided by you but, in some cases, we may collect data related to your person from third parties or from public registers. We protect such data collected from third parties in accordance with the procedures described in this data privacy statement.



We may use collected data to

i. register you for the CDM Award 2018; 

ii. have a jury evaluate information you have provided in order to select a finalist;

iii. publishing your application on our website for the online selection process. 

Data will be exclusively collected and processed for the purpose of conducting the CDM Award 2018. 

Your data may be electronically processed by IT systems or manually processed in paper form. Throughout their life cycle, these data will be processed and stored in such a way that ensures the maintenance of their security and confidentiality in accordance with the principles of fairness, legality and transparency as well as in observance of the applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.



You are never under obligation to provide us with information. However, should you choose not to provide us with information that is necessary to complete your registration for the CDM Award 2018 and determine a winner, we will be unable to consider your application. Omitting information that is considered optional, on the other hand, will not affect your participation. 



Your data will be shared with the members of the jury that has been tasked with evaluating the submissions for the CDM Award 2018. Your data may be shared with third parties for the purpose of satisfying legal obligations, ensuring our security, protecting our rights or our property, complying with instructions from authorities, or exercising our rights with judicial authorities.



In order to execute the data processing activities specified above, we may transfer your data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). This could include saving such data on digital or physical databases that are maintained by other companies on our account. The management and the processing of databases are limited to the purposes of the processing and these shall be performed in accordance with the applicable statutory and regulatory data protection requirements.

If data are transferred to countries outside of the EEA, the company shall take all the necessary contractual measures to provide an adequate level of protection for such data. This includes, in particular, agreements based on the standard privacy clauses adopted by the European Commission concerning the transfer of personal data to outside of the European Economic Area.



We limit the storage of data in our systems and archives to the period of time necessary to pursue the purposes outlined in this data privacy policy and under consideration of any statutory and contractual requirements, where applicable. 

When data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they have been processed, these data shall be deleted or stored in a form that precludes the possibility of identifying the affected persons, provided that we are not required or permitted by law to keep such data. We may store data for a longer period of time if this proves necessary in order to protect our interests in view of potential liability in connection with the provision of products and services or for data processing.

When you submit a request to us, we may require additional personal information from you in order to verify your identity and contact you, if necessary. Such data, along with other data already in our possession, will be processed in accordance with the applicable statutory requirements for the purpose of handling your request.
