A. Data processing
1. Accessing this website and creation of log files
information are collected every time this website is accessed or used. These data and information are stored in log files on the server and can include:
- IP address
- browser type / browser version
- date and time the website was accessed
- user Internet service provider
- user operating system
- referring website
- websites accessed by the User’s system through our website
The temporary storage of data and log files is lawful pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. f General Data Protection Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung—DSGVO)
The IP address is temporarily stored in the system as it is necessary to provide website access to the User’s computer. The IP address is retained while that website is being accessed.
These log files are stored to ensure website functionality, optimize the content of our website, and ensure the security of our IT system.
The data will be deleted when they are no longer needed for the purpose they were collected. For data collected to provide access to the website, this will be at the end of every session.
For log files, this will occur after 28 days at the latest. Some data may be preserved for a longer period of time, in which case user IP addresses are deleted or anonymized, rendering it impossible to link the data to any individual.
Users can register to the confences via the webpages by providing personal data. All information requested in the online data entry form will be transmitted as part of the registration process.
You will be asked to grant your consent for the processing of this data as part of the registration process.
These data are processed subsequent to user consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR.
User registration is necessary to provide specific content and services on our website, including the creation and administration of user accounts, participation in surveys, the administration of applications for admission and placement tests, the organization of examinations, registering for courses, events, examinations, and the administrative tasks associated with them.
The data will be deleted when they are no longer needed for the purpose they were collected.

- the right to limited processing of personal data (Article 18 GDPR)
- the right to object to the processing of your data conducted in our legitimate interest, public interest, or for profiling purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling grounds for processing said data that outweighs your interests, rights, and freedoms or where the processing of said data is required for the establishment, exercise, or defense of a legal claim (Article 21, GDPR);
- the right to withdraw your consent to the collection, processing, and use of your personal data at any time with future effect (Article 7 paragraph 3 GDPR)—this means that the data processing related to that consent will no longer be carried out;
