2. General information on data processing

2.1. Scope of the processing of personal data

When you contact us as a customer or interested party, we collect personal data. This happens if you are interested in our products or register for newsletters, contact us by e-mail or telephone or if you use our products and services in the context of existing business relationships.

In this context, we process your personal data, e.g. first and last name, Title, address, e-mail address, telephone number.

In addition, we process contractual data (subject matter of contract, term, customer category) payment data (bank details, payment history) of our customers, interested parties and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services and for service and customer care.

In addition, we process the following personal data for marketing, evaluation, and advertising purposes: nationality, gender, date of birth, sector of interest, employer, type of organisation, year of participation, how did you first learn about IPDET, previous IPDET attendance, reasons for applying, previous knowledge.

2.2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

If the processing of personal data is based on the consent of the data subject, Article 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. If personal data are processed in order to fulfil a contract with the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. If we process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If we process data to safeguard the legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject are not more important, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

2.3. Cooperation with data processors and third party countries

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transfer them to them or grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permit (e.g. a transfer to payment service providers pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR required for the performance of a contract), a consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts). If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "contract processing agreement", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

2.4. Transfers to third party countries

If we process data in a third party country (i.e. outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) or if this is done in the context of the use of third party services, this will only occur if it is done to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. We process data subject to legal or contractual permissions only if the requirements of Art. 44 to Art. 50 GDPR are met: Data will therefore only be processed if, for example, special guarantees exist, such as official recognition of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. "Privacy Shield") or observance of officially recognised contractual obligations (so-called standard contractual clauses).

2.5. Data deletion and storage duration

As soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, personal data of a data subject are deleted or their processing restricted ("blocked"). If European or national regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject require longer retention, the personal data will be stored in accordance with these legal provisions for longer than the original purpose intended.

2.6. Data deletion in case of revocation

All data recorded until revocation will be deleted immediately - except where required by law.

6. Social Media: Online appearances and plug-ins

Online presences in social media

We maintain online presences in social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services. When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of the respective operators apply.

6.1. Facebook social plug-ins

As part of our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online services, we use social plug-ins (short "plug-ins") of the social network facebook.com, which operates Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (short "Facebook"). The plug-ins can be interaction elements or content (e.g. graphics, text contributions) and can be recognised by one of the Facebook logos or marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the plug-ins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

If a user calls a function of this online service that contains such a plug-in, his device establishes a direct connection with Facebook servers. We cannot influence the amount of data that Facebook collects with this plug-in. Facebook transmits the content of the plug-in directly to the user's device. This enables the creation of user profiles, since Facebook learns that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online service. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to the user's Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plug-ins (e.g. pressing the Like button), the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. Even if a user is not a member of Facebook, it is possible for Facebook to find out and store the corresponding IP address.

Facebook privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a Facebook member does not want Facebook to collect information about them through our online service and link it to their Facebook member information, they must log out of Facebook and delete their cookies before using our online service. You can make further settings via one of the following pages: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads, http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ (US site), http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (EU site). The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices.

6.2. Twitter plug-ins

On our pages, functions of the Twitter service are integrated. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. Data is also transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. Further information on this can be found in Twitter's privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

Services, tools and contents of third parties

We use content or services offered by third parties in order to integrate their content and services (e.g. maps or fonts, hereinafter referred to as "Content"). The prerequisite for this is that the third party providers use your IP address. We make every effort to use only content whose providers use the IP address only to deliver the content.
