Thank you for visiting our website. Below we inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The office named in the imprint is responsible for the data processing described below.
When you visit our website, so-called usage data is temporarily processed on our web server in order to deliver the content of our website. In addition, we process the usage data for statistical purposes to ensure the quality of our websites. This data set consists of
- the name and address of the requested content
- the date and time of the request
- the amount of data transferred
- the access status (content transferred; content not found)
- the description of the web browser and operating system used
- the referral link, which indicates the page from which you came to our site
- the IP address of the requesting computer
Storage of the IP address for security purposes
In addition, we store the complete IP address transmitted by your web browser for a strictly limited period of four weeks in the interest of being able to recognise, limit and eliminate attacks on our websites. After this period, we delete the IP address. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption process on our websites. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with https://.
Visitor measurement (Google Analytics)
We use the web analysis tool "Google Analytics" to design our websites in line with requirements. Google Analytics creates usage profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your end device and read by us. In this way, we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.
Google Analytics is provided to us by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC (USA) as processors within the meaning of Art. 28 DSGVO. The data processing may also take place outside the EU or the EEA. With regard to Google LLC, an adequate level of data protection cannot be assumed due to processing in the USA. There is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and monitoring purposes without informing you or allowing you to seek redress. Please bear this in mind if you decide to give your consent to our use of Google Analytics.
Data processing is based on your consent, provided you have given your consent via our banner. The transfer to a third country takes place on the basis of Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.
The data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 lit. a EU-GDPR, provided you have given your consent via our cookie banner. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by following the button below and making the appropriate settings.
Necessary cookies may contain information about certain settings on the website. They may also be necessary to enable user navigation, security and implementation of the site. We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
You have the option of contacting us via our contact form. To use our contact form, we first need the data marked as mandatory fields from you. We use this data on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR to answer your enquiry.
In addition, you can decide for yourself whether you would like to provide us with further information. This information is provided voluntarily and is not required for contacting us. We process your voluntary information on the basis of your consent.
Your data will only be processed to answer your enquiry. We delete your data if it is no longer required and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.
Submission forms for events
On our website we use submission forms for the speakers of our event to provide abstract submissions. If you contact us via our submission form or by means of personal messages, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. We process this data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR to evaluate and answer your submission.
Additionally, accepted submissions are published in the conference programme as well as on our website. This processing is based on the consent of our event participants according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit a GDPR. The consent may be withdrawn at any time with full effect for the future.
We delete your data if it is no longer required and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.
We embed videos on our websites that are not stored on our servers. When you call up our pages with embedded videos, the content of the third-party provider that provides the videos is reloaded. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context.
We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. However, when embedding the videos, we made sure to activate the extended data protection mode offered by the third-party provider. The extended data protection mode means that the third-party provider does not set any cookies.
The embedding is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of making our site as appealing and informative as possible.
|Provider||Adequate level of data protection||Withdrawal of consent|
|Google Ireland Limited, Google LLC (YouTube )||No adequate level of data protection||If you wish to object to the embedding, please stop using our site.|
You can order a newsletter on our website. Please note that we require certain data (at least your e-mail address) to subscribe to the newsletter.
The newsletter will only be sent if you have given us your express consent. After you have placed an order on our websites, you will receive a confirmation e-mail at the e-mail address you have provided (so-called double opt-in). You can revoke your consent at any time. You can easily revoke your consent, for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every newsletter.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store further data in addition to the data already mentioned, insofar as this is necessary for us to be able to prove that you have subscribed to our newsletter. This may include storing the full IP address at the time of ordering or confirming the newsletter, as well as a copy of the confirmation email we send. This data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of being able to account for the lawfulness of the newsletter dispatch.
We use the e-mail address you provide in connection with event registration for direct advertising for our own similar event formats. You will receive these event recommendations regardless of whether you have subscribed to our newsletter. In this way, we want to send you information about events and topics that might interest you based on your previous registrations for our events. If you do not wish to receive these event recommendations, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the prime rates. An informal message to the address email@example.com is sufficient. Alternatively, you can also use the unsubscribe link contained in every e-mail. The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (balancing of interests, based on our interest in providing advertising to existing customers) and Section 7 para. 3 of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG) (processing of your e-mail address for direct advertising).
We embed map services on our websites that are not stored on our servers. When you call up our pages with embedded map services, the content of the third-party provider that provides the map services is reloaded. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider.
The embedding is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of enabling you to use map services.
|Provider||Adequate level of data protection||Withdrawal of consent|
|OpenStreetMap||Processing within EU/EEA||If you wish to object to the processing, please stop using our site.|
Unless we have already informed you in detail about the storage period, we delete personal data when they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and legal retention obligations do not prevent deletion.
We pass on your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes as part of commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. These are, for example, hosting service providers. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions to us and are contractually obligated accordingly.
In the following, we will name the processors with whom we work, if we have not already done so in the preceding text of the data protection notice. If data is transferred outside the EU or EEA in this context, we provide information on the appropriate level of data protection.
