Information about the collection of personal data
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously.
Personal data is any data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses and user behavior (information that relates to an identifiable natural person (Art. 4 No. 1 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO)).
The responsible person pursuant to Art. 4 (7) DS-GVO is the President of KIT, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Holger Hanselka, Kaiserstraße 12, 76131 Karlsruhe, info∂kit.edu (see imprint). You can reach our data protection officers at datenschutzbeauftragter∂kit.edu or the postal address with the addition "Die Datenschutzbeauftragte".
When you register for the event or contact us by email, the data you provide will be stored by us in order to include or identify you as a participant in the event, to provide you with relevant information about the event if needed, and to answer your questions. We delete the data accrued in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Collection of personal data
When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server according to the settings you have made (server log files). To view our website, we collect the data that is technically necessary for this purpose and to ensure stability and security in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO:
- Anonymized IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Web page from which the request comes
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
As part of the registration for the event, we collect the following mandatory data:
- Name, first name,
- Company affiliation
- E-mail address
The mandatory data is processed in order to be able to register and identify you as a participant in the event and to be able to plan and carry out the event in accordance with your interests. In addition, we need your data to provide you with relevant information about the event before, during and after the event. This is done to enable you to participate in the best possible way and for us to plan and ensure that the event runs smoothly.
We will only use your e-mail address to inform you about similar events in the future if you have expressly consented to such use or if we have separately informed you about this when collecting your e-mail address and pointed out your right to object to this use at any time. If this use is not based on consent, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in also informing our participants about other events organized by us.
Your contact data from the registration form will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure for event registration, i.e. your registration is only completed once you have confirmed your registration by clicking on the link contained in a confirmation e-mail sent to you for this purpose. If your confirmation is not received within 48 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted from our database.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us can generally not be read by third parties.
