Designated Data-Sharing and Confidentiality

The data you provide will be passed on to our project partners strictly for the purpose of supporting the project and for press- and public-relations work.

Likewise, jury members must treat all information made available to them in the course of their work for this competition confidentially and may not use it for their own work outside of this project. A declaration to this effect will be signed by the jury members.

Declaration of Exemption:

In the event that legal action has been taken or proceedings are pending against you or a representative of your project or institution in connection with your participation in our project AGYLE, or you have registered using false data, we reserve the right to exclude you from participation and subsequent events at any time. We also reserve the right to exclude you from our project AGYLE and the subsequent events at any time if it becomes clear that you or a representative of your project/your institution is not committed to the fundamental values of freedom and democracy and/or lacks respect and tolerance towards fellow human beings to such an extent, or if you or a representative of your project/your institution otherwise behaves in a manner, that threatens the integrity of the competition and its related events.

Transfer of Permissions:

Furthermore, you transfer to the initiative Deutschland – Land der Ideen (Deutschland – Land der Ideen e.V. and Land der Ideen Management GmbH) the unrestricted temporal, spatial and media rights to all photographs or other images as well as films you have provided for the project, so that Deutschland – Land der Ideen (Deutschland – Land der Ideen e.V. and Land der Ideen Management GmbH) and our above-mentioned project clients GIZ and AWE may use them for communication relating to the AGYLE project, in all media forms, online or offline. You also confirm that the consent of persons depicted in these photographs, pictures or films have been granted for this use. The transfer of these permissions expires on the date of publication of the programme participants, unless you have been selected as a participant.

Retraction: Your consent may be revoked at any time in whole or in part as it applies to the future use of materials. In the event of a revocation, we will immediately remove the photos and name from our website. If we have used your materials in video or print, however, we will continue to use these materials. Should there be new editions of these media, we will, of course, remove your materials and images and will make sure your name does not appear in these new editions.

You have the right to request information about the data we have stored about you. All requests for information or objections to data processing should be sent by e-mail to datenschutz@land-der-ideen.de.


As a selected programme participant, I agree (until any revocation) that I and my company or institution may be named and portrayed in public, in particular in the press, by the press- and public-relations work of the initiative Deutschland – Land der Ideen and the project commissioner, the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), as well as the Agentur für Wirtschaft und Entwicklung (AWE).
