Information on the processing of personal data
The "Sexual Abuse Help Portal" of the Independent Commissioner for Child Sexual Abuse Issues (UBSKM) provides information for people affected by sexual abuse, their families and other people who want to support them, as well as professionals, about specific help services for children and adolescents affected by sexual violence. The portal's nationwide database contains a list of phone and online support services in the different regions.
Insofar as personal data is processed in the course of these activities, this is done on the basis of the legal provisions, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Personal data is any information that relates to a (living) individual who is either already identified or who can be identified through this information. Identifiability can be achieved either by merging available information or through additional measures, such as association with a name identifier, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or by searching generally accessible information pools such as databases, libraries or the internet.
Persons under the age of 16 should not submit personal data without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.
