  1. What are the purposes and what is the legal basis for the processing of data?

In compliance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG – new) and all other relevant laws, we only process your personal data if such is necessary in order for us to provide the information on this website and our services on this website.

If you merely use the website for informational reasons – i.e. if you do not log in, register or otherwise provide us with information in order to use the website, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website. Such data includes:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the query
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific webpage)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data quantity transferred in each case
  • Website from which the request originates
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

To ensure the functionality of the website, such data is stored in log files. This data also serves to ensure the security of our information technology systems and to optimize the webpage.

Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR forms the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files.

If the processing of personal data is based on the consent of the data subject, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which, in order for us to fulfill it, requires us to process personal data, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis.

Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR is the legal basis in cases in which vital interests of data subjects or other natural persons require the processing of personal data.

If personal data is processed to preserve the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject must give way to such interests. Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis for such processing.

Personal data may be passed on to our IT service providers to enable them to provide this website.

 

  1. Data security

We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data against risks involved in data transfers and to prevent third parties from obtaining knowledge of your data. These technical measures are each adapted accordingly to reflect the current state of the art.

Furthermore, cookies are stored on your computer when you use the website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in the browser you use. They allow certain information to be sent to the location placing the cookie (in this case, pro event live-communication). Cookies cannot run programs or pass on viruses to your computer. They serve to make our offering altogether more user-friendly and more effective.

Once our website is accessed by a user, the user is advised of the use of cookies for the purpose of analysis. To be able to process the personal data used in this context, we obtain the user's consent.

This website uses cookies within the following scope: transient cookies (temporary use).

Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser. These include in particular “session cookies”. Session cookies store a “session ID” that is used to allocate various queries of your browser to the joint session. They allow your computer to be recognized when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser. Some functions of our website cannot be used unless cookies are used. These functions require us to be able to recognize your browser also when you have moved to another webpage.

The information we store this way is stored separately from any further data you may have provided to us.

In particular, the data collected by the cookies is not linked with your other data. You can delete at any time the cookies currently being stored. It is also possible to delete them automatically.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If the user has consented to the processing of personal data by means of cookies for purposes of analysis, such consent constitutes the legal basis laid down in Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software; please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent.

 

  1. What data protection rights can I assert as a data subject?

In the absence of professional regulations to the contrary, you have the right:

  • To withdraw your consent given to us, at any time in accordance with Article 7 (3) GDPR. As a result, we will no longer be allowed to continue processing data based on such consent in the future.

In particular, you are entitled to obtain information about the purposes of processing; the category of personal data and the origin thereof; the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed; the purpose and the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored; the existence of a right of rectification, erasure, restriction of the processing or objection; the existence of a right to lodge a complaint; the origin of your data unless it has been collected by us; the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling; if applicable, meaningful information on the details of such decision-making;
  • To obtain without delay the rectification of incorrect data or the completion of your personal data stored by us, in accordance with Article 16 GDPR;

  • To restrict the processing of your personal data, in accordance with Article 18 GDPR, insofar as you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful but you refuse to have us erase the data and we no longer need the data, but if you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 GDPR;
  • To receive in a structured, current and machine-readable format the personal data that you have provided to us or to request that it be transferred to another controller, in accordance with Article 20 GDPR and

  1. Children

We do not collect any personal data from minors. In the event that we should do so unknowingly, we will erase such data without delay.

 

  1. Can I object to the processing of my personal data?

You are entitled to object to the processing of your personal data for direct advertising purposes, without giving reasons. If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you have the right to object to such processing for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling, legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

In order for us to make the website available to users and to ensure the operation of the website, the collection of data and its storage in log files is absolutely necessary. Therefore, the user has no option to object.

If log files are stored, they are deleted after nine weeks at the latest but are anonymized after seven days. No further processing is carried out.
