The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Personal data, such as names, addresses or email addresses, are always provided on a voluntary basis when possible. Those data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit permission.
However, we would like to point out that data transmissions via internet (e.g email communication) cannot be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of personal details against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.
The provider of these websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us, such as:
- browser type/version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of the accessing computer
- time of query
Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. We do not merge this data with other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if there is any indication of illegal use.

We use the newsletter to provide you with regular updates about our events. To receive our newsletter, you will need a valid email address. We will then check the email address entered to ensure that you are actually its owner or if its owner has agreed to receive our newsletter. By registering for the newsletter, we will save your IP address and date and time of registration. This will be used in case a third party misuses your email address to subscribe to our newsletter without your knowledge.
We will not compare the data collected during newsletter registration with any other data that might be collected by other components of our site.

You will be asked to consent to the use of your personal data as follows:
