Protecting our visitor data and keeping it safe is very important to us. This is why we have designed our website and business procedures to minimize the personal data collected and processed. The following data protection declaration explains what information we collect during your visit to our website and which parts of it we use for what purpose.

Personal data
We do not record personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address unless provided when registering for the newsletter or requesting accreditation for conferences. We use voluntarily provided data solely for the purpose for which you provided it. We will only use your data in the context of other offers or for marketing purposes if you gave us the consent to use it for those purposes.

Standard data
In general, when you visit our website, our web server does not record your full IP address and the domain name of the computer you are using. We configure the server so that it does not automatically log the information that identifies you individually. For this reason, no personal data or data that could be linked to you can remain on our servers. However, in case of an attempted server abuse or a server failure, a so-called log file can be created. The details recorded in these files include the IP address, the specific page address retrieved from our site and potentially the page from which you reached us (source link), as well as the browser ID and the date and system time when the page was requested. This data will be deleted from our server immediately after the error has been corrected and it will be used exclusively for analyzing the error. We are unable to link these log files to a particular person.

Technical controls - Cookie

If you do not want our website to use cookies on your computer, you can disable it in your browser settings and set your browser to warn you if a website uses cookies.

Analytics ShinyStat - Tracking

The service offered by Analytics ShinyStat allows us to conduct statistical analyzes to improve the quality of our website.

Apart from this information, no other data is passed on to third parties. If you do not want your visits to our website to be tracked, you can exclude them from the data storage process.

Links to other websites
If you access an external website from our website (external link), your browser may inform the external provider from which of our web pages you came. These data are the responsibility of the external provider. Like any other webpage provider, we are unable to influence this process.

If you have any further questions, i.e. about the personal data we have stored about you, you are welcome to contact us. The means of contacting us are listed on the contact web page. We will, of course, be happy to respect your constitutional right to know what data we stored about you.
