General note and compulsory information

face to face event GmbH collects, processes and uses personal data, which you transmit on our website, according to the respective valid legal regulations for data protection (Data Protection Basic Regulation).

In principle, our website can be visited without registration.

Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, are – as far as possible – collected on a voluntary basis.

The face to face event GmbH never passes on personal data to third parties. Personal data is only stored on the server as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was transmitted. Our employees are obliged to keep the confidentiality of your data.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

There are some data processing operations which can only be carried out with your express consent. Such consent is always obtained separately.

You can revoke an already given consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority

As the person concerned, you have the right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a violation of data protection laws. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is located.
