When processing personal data, we follow the relevant legal regulations, in particular Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (“GDPR”), and associated legal regulations.

  • for the purposes of protecting DILIA’s legitimate interests.


The legal foundation of processing is as follows:

- the need for processing in order to fulfil an obligation from the contract which we entered into with you according to subparagraph 6(1)(b) GDPR

  • identification and contact details are processed in this regard, for example, or other data required to enter into a contract,

- the need for processing in order to fulfil DILIA’s legal obligations according to subparagraph 6(1)(c) GDPR

  • for the purposes of inspections by state bodies,

- the legitimate interest of DILIA according to subparagraph 6(1)(f) GDPR, whereby such interest lies in the provision of quality services, the statistics and records kept to this end, and the effort to increase the number of copyright holders represented; to this end DILIA may, in limited cases, use personal data for marketing and advertising purposes.

We do not fundamentally transfer your personal data outside DILIA, save cases in which:

These systems facilitate the effective exchange of information between collecting society organisations all over the world and are not publicly-accessible. Such data exchange procedures, relating to organisations having their registered office within the European Economic Area (EEA) and the European Union (EU), and outside them, are required to ensure that incomes from different sources are distributed to the corresponding copyright holders by DILIA.
