Inventory data

(1) Your personal data, insofar as these are necessary for this contractual relationship (inventory data) in terms of its establishment, organization of content and modifications, are used exclusively for fulfilling the contract. For goods to be delivered, for instance, your name and address must be relayed to the supplier of the goods.

After completion of the contract, your data are blocked against further use. After expiry of deadlines as per tax-related and commercial regulations, these data are deleted unless you have expressly consented to their further use.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you communicating it to us. For example, this may involve data that you enter in a contact form when you book an event or when you register as a user in the login area. 

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website. See also the section on the use of Google Analytics.

We also use cookies to enable us to perform specific functions on our website. For example, we make sure that your shopping cart is not deleted, if you leave the page for a short time and then return to the checkout.

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website is error-free. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour. (See also the notes on the use of Google Analytics).

Personal data that you make available to us in order to register as a member of the IKV-Sponsors' Association or as a former IKV member on our website is stored internally and used for personalised advertising, e.g. to invite you to our events and lectures. The stored data will not be passed on to third parties.

When you register for an event, we internally store the data we have received from you. We use this data for participant management (printing of name tags, entries in participant directories) and to draw your attention to other events at the IKV by post and e-mail.
