Data Privacy Policy

We protect the personal data of participants. All participants' data will be considered confidential and will be handled in accordance with data protection guidelines. Personal data includes all data that is stored in connection with the names of participants. Information shared by participants is stored in our participant database and is used for the purpose of providing services. The data collected may be forwarded to the institution cooperating in organizing the conference for the sole purpose and only to the extent necessary to provide services.

We will occasionally send participants information about our upcoming events; participants can choose to unsubscribe from these emails at any time. If networking is one of the goals of the event for which the participant has registered, the participant’s name, institution, and email address will be published in a list of participants and distributed to other participants and speakers at the same event.

Participants can choose to opt out from sharing their information. However, for organizational reasons we ask that such requests are submitted in electronic form to well in advance of the start of the event.

On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
