Below you will find all the information you need on the subject. The processing of personal data always takes place in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the Basic Data Protection Ordinance.
However, if you wish to make use of special services relating to our conference via our website, personal data may have to be processed. If personal data (e.g., name, address or email addresses) are collected on our sites, it is, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
We store this data for as long as you wish to make use of the corresponding service, after this time it will be deleted. Of course, we treat your personal data confidentially and do not pass them on to third parties under any circumstances. You can request information about your data at any time (more on this in the "User rights" section).
As the data controller, we have taken numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as securely as possible. Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via email) may have security vulnerabilities. For this reason, each person is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative channels, such as telephone.

2. Gathering general data and information (log data)
When you access our website, your browser sends a series of technical data, which is documented. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. Your IP address, your browser identification and domain, the name of the retrieved file, date and time of the retrieval, the transferred data volume and the successful retrieval are recorded in a log file.
The server log files are anonymous data that are recorded when you access our website. This information does not allow conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but is necessary for technical reasons for the delivery and presentation of our content. We register your accesses for reasons of data security, to ensure the stability and operational safety of our systems and to ward off unauthorised attacks, as well as for statistical reasons and for the continuous optimisation of our content. The log data is used exclusively for internal purposes and will not be passed on to third parties under any circumstances.
3. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if required by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the legal regulations.
4. User rights
You have the right, upon request and free of charge, to obtain information about the personal data stored about you. In addition, you have the right to correct, block, delete, restrict processing, revoke any data protection consent and to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions. Please contact our data protection officer. In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.
5. Possibility of contact by e-mail
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables us to contact our contact persons quickly and electronically and to communicate directly with them, which also includes the e-mail address. If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data you provide will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting us. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
6. Third-party content and services
The offer on our website may also include content, services and performances of other providers which supplement our offer. Examples of such offerings include maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphics from third parties. Calling up these services from third parties regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This makes it possible for these providers to perceive your user IP address and also to store it.
We make every effort to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses only for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on which third party provider may store the IP address. This storage can, for example, be used for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of storage processes by third parties, we will immediately inform our users of this fact.
7. Links to other websites
The online offer contains links to other websites (so-called external links). We have no influence on whether the operators of other websites comply with data protection regulations. Please note that by clicking on a link from another website you are becoming subject to different data protection regulations. We have no influence on the data processing there.
8. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO serves as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain permission for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. On this legal basis, processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases will be based if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, the legitimate interest lies in the performance of our business activities and the maintenance of our legal capacity.
