Collecting Personal Data

We collect as little user data as possible to provide this website. This means that we do not actively collect usage statistics or data unique to the individual if you simply visit our web page. The site is run using a local install of WordPress configured to neither send data through third-party servers nor save any cookies on your device. There are two exceptions, however: firstly, if you enter a password to access a page, a cookie is set to show you that page even if you refresh it. And secondly, if you log in to edit content, user account information is saved on your computer in the form of a cookie and log-in data is saved to the database on our server.

If you fill in and submit a conference registration form on this website, your data can be accessed by both the website admin and the conference organisers. We take care to delete such personal data as soon after the conference as possible.

The server this website is available from is provided by KONTENT GmbH. To prevent orchestrated attacks on their infrastructure they log client data such as your browser, screen size, IP address and access dates in accordance with their own privacy policy.
