Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automat­i­cally deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automat­i­cally accept cookies under certain condi­tions or to always reject them, or to automat­i­cally delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the function­ality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic commu­ni­ca­tions or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legit­imate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automat­i­cally collects and stores infor­mation that your browser automat­i­cally transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures prelim­inary to a contract.

Application form

Should you fill in the appli­cation form, we will collect the data entered on the form. The appli­cation form uses the WordPress plugins Contact Form 7 and Flamingo. We do not share this infor­mation without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is suffi­cient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the appli­cation form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after the conference). Any mandatory statutory provi­sions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
