This Initiative is Absolutely Voluntary
First, it is important to point out that, while we would be delighted to have strong support for our initiative, it is absolutely voluntary and nobody will be forced or pressured to take part.
Data Categories and Purpose
The 1000 Reasons for SUSE initiative (“1000 Reasons”) has been created for the purpose of engaging with our various stakeholders such as communities, customers, employees and partners to demonstrate the reasons why our employees love working here. To share such personal sentiments, we need to process personal data such as your selfie, your name, your email, your role as well as the input you provide – your reason why you love working at SUSE (“Personal Data”).
Publication of your Personal Data
Publication of your Personal Data on Twitter and LinkedIn
You can also consent to your Personal Data being published externally on Twitter, LinkedIn and other SUSE social media accounts. If you indicate accordingly in the email you send to email@example.com, or by completing the online form intended to gather your Personal Data for the purposes of participation in the 1000 Reasons initiative a social media post containing your Personal Data maybe created under SUSE’s social media accounts and maybe promoted and shared accordingly. You therefore consent to the SUSE Group (SUSE Software Solutions Germany GmbH and its corporate affiliates) using the Personal Data to promote the SUSE Group’s 1000 Reasons initiative. You acknowledge that the SUSE Group may publish the Personal Data on Twitter, Facebook and other SUSE social media accounts. You acknowledge use of such platforms may involve the Personal Data being transferred to third parties in third countries which may not provide the same level of protection to the rights of individuals as the GDPR does. Further, you understand that once the Personal Data has been published by the SUSE Group to the aforementioned platforms, due to the nature of such platforms, complete removal of the Personal Data may not be possible. Personal Data shared externally in this manner is processed according to Art 6 (1)(a) GDPR.

Information about your right of objection under Article 21 GDPR
Case-specific Right of Objection
You have the right at any time, for reasons arising out of your particular situation, to object to the processing of your Personal Data pursuant to Article 6 (1)(e) GDPR (Data Processing in the Public Interest) and Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR (Data processing on the basis of a balance of interests).
