Contact by e-mail
If you contact us by e-mail, the data you give us will be stored so that we can take care of your request and respond to you if necessary. This is your e-mail address and usually your name, if you have told us, but also any other contact information you give us, as well as your request to contact us. Of course, this applies to all contacts, not only those in connection with data protection. Once we no longer need this information to help you, we will delete it within a few days. There is only one exception: we have to store some information because the law requires us to do so (e.g. because of commercial storage obligations). In these cases, however, we limit the processing and access to your data as far as possible. For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that unencrypted e-mails are not completely protected from unauthorized access by third parties.
If you register for an event with us, we ask you to register through Meetup, Eventbrite, Facebook or Typeform (see Data Processors) so we can plan our events accordingly and make your visit to our events the best possible experience. We may also contact you leading up to the event to remind you or to update you on the latest details, and we may also add you to the newsletter after the event to share relevant information. This data is considered to be processed under the legal base or Article 6b, performance of a contract. We will delete this data within 183 days after the conclusion of the event. At our events, we may also take photos for promotional purposes. You can at all times object to this. If you don’t object, we will process these under Article 6(1)f, legitimate interest. Our legitimate interest is the promotion of our events and activities.
We also use the web analysis tool Google Analytics. Google evaluates the user behaviour on this website on our behalf. This allows us to track how long a visitor stays on our website and exactly which pages he has visited. This way we can see which of our sites are the most popular and which we can make even better. The IP address is also shortened via Google, but only in exceptional cases in the USA. As a rule, the reduction takes place on servers within the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. According to Google, the complete IP address transmitted will not be merged with any other data that Google holds about you.
