§ 5 Events

(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to events we hold, with which we inform you about market relevant developments.

(2) For the registration process, we use the so-called double-opt-in process. This means that after you register, we send an email containing a confirmation button / link that you need to click in order to finalise the registration process. If you do not confirm the registration or cancel it, your personal data will be deleted within a month. The purpose of the process is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to investigate possible misuse of your personal data.

(3) The only obligatory information for registering to our event is your name and email address. Provision of other, separately marked data is voluntary and is used in order to contact you personally. After your registration, we store your data for the purpose of organizing the event and your participation in it. The legal basis for the processing of your obligatory information is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR. The processing of additional optional data is based on your consent pursuant to Art.6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) of the GDPR.

(4) Apart from registering to our event via our registration form, we offer interested parties the possibility to take part in the event last minute by logging into the event via our livestream website. Therefore we process your email-address for the purpose of organizing and ensuring your participation in the event, Art.6 (1) sentence 1 lit.b) of the GDPR.

(5) Our event is hosted digitally by means of embedded vimeo live videos. By participating in the event and watching the live video, your IP-address will be transferred and processed by vimeo, a corporation in the United States of America. To ensure your rights to privacy we have taken necessary precautionary measures to limit the processing of your data by vimeo to a minimum. In addition we have put standard contractual clauses (controller to controller) in place as safeguarding measures. The processing of your IP-address takes place for the purpose of carrying out the event and ensuring your participation in it, Art.6 (1) sentence 1 lit.b) of the GDPR.
