The protection and security of your personal information is a high priority for us. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the rules of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Below we will inform you what data will be collected and for what purpose.
1. Collection and processing of data
We collect and process data on our website to facilitate the organization and implementation of our events. This includes:
- Participant data

The data is only processed by SCC EVENTS and contracted third parties, and only for the purposes listed above. Data will not be passed on to non-contracted third parties without prior authorization, unless it is legal required.
Personal data is only collected and processed when provided voluntarily. You can withdraw your permission for the storage of your personal data at any time in writing, e.g. by mail or fax, as far as there are no requirements to the storage in connection with a business transaction.
According to applicable law, you may ask in writing at any time if and which person-related data about you are stored with us. You will receive a respective notification immediately.
In order to prevent unauthorised access by third parties, your personal data will be secured by taking all necessary technical and organisational security measures.

Google Analytics uses so-called"cookies", text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is sent to and stored at a Google server in the U.S.A. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide other services related to website and internet activities.

We would like to clarify with regard to the discussion of the usage of analytical tools with complete IP addresses that this website uses Google Analystics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", so only shortened IP addresses are processed, which makes direct tracing to a single person impossible.
