Privacy Policy

Thank you for your visit to the website and your interest in the business festival. The protection and security of the data of our visitors is very important to us. Accordingly, we have designed our website and business processes so that as little personal data as possible has to be collected and processed. The following data protection statement explains what information is collected during your visit to our website and what parts of this information may be used and how.


Standard data

When you visit our website, our web server stores information about your end device and the browser used, in a log file, as standard, like any other web server. This data is needed to enable us to analyze errors on the part of our server and attempts at improper use. Specifically, at this point we collect the IP address, the exact address of the page called on our website, possibly the page you left to come to our page (link source), the browser ID transmitted, and the system date and time when the page was called. We do not use this data for any purposes other than those stated, and it is deleted no later than two days after the call date has expired. We are not able to link this data to an individual unless you yourself provide further information about your person in one of the forms offered. This is the case for example if you subscribe to our newsletter or purchase a ticket. Even in these cases, we store this information on separate systems and only merge it in exceptional circumstances when there are legal reasons for doing so (attempted misuse).


Technical control - Cookies

Our website uses "cookies". With cookies, your visit to our website can be managed more easily and faster. If you do not wish our website to use cookies placed on your computer, you can deactivate the cookies in your browser settings, or change to the settings so that you are informed whenever cookies on any website are used. For more information about this, please follow the links below, for example. or:


Tracking with Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Ireland ("Google"). This technology enables us to maintain and expand our web offering. Its reports help us to measure and analyze our web offering and optimize its content. To protect our users and partners, we can also detect and defend against fraud and security threats.

Google processes your information upon our instruction by using "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your end device and help us to analyze the use of our web offering.

The protection of your data is important to us, so we have added the configuration parameter "anonymizeIp" to Google Analytics. Your IP address is then only captured in abbreviated form by the code. So we process your personal usage data in anonymous form. We cannot deduce your identity.

You can retrieve information about how Google processes your data when you visit websites here.

If you do not want Google Analytics to perform an anonymized analysis of your website use, you can object to this at any time here, with proactive effect. When you click on the link, an opt-out cookie is stored on your end device. The next time you visit our website, this cookie prevents your data from being collected again.

Another way to prevent tracking by Google Analytics is provided by the browser plugin from Google, which you can download and install by following this link:

You can also prevent cookies from being stored by making corresponding settings in your browser software.

Use of retargeting tools

On our website we use retargeting technology. We use retargeting to categorize website visitors in user groups. Based on the respective user group, we then approach website visitors on other websites or in apps with individualized advertising for our products and services.

For this, we use the following products, which are made available to us by service providers:

"Facebook Custom Audience" / "Facebook Pixel"

"Google AdWords User Lists" / "Google Dynamic Remarketing"


"Facebook Custom Audience" / "Facebook Pixel"

"Facebook Custom Audience" and "Facebook Pixel" are products of Facebook Ireland Ltd., Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). Our website uses a "Facebook Pixel" from Facebook which creates a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The Facebook server thus receives the information that you have visited our website. Facebook associates this information with your personal Facebook account, if you have such an account and are logged into it. If you visit other websites which also use "Facebook Custom Audience" / "Facebook Pixel", this information is also linked to your user account. However, we are not able to see what other websites you visit. If you are not logged into Facebook while you visit our website or if you are not a Facebook user, your visit to the website is not associated with a Facebook user account.

For more detailed information about way to protect your personal environment on Facebook, please refer to the data privacy instructions from Facebook at In particular, The Activity log tool enables you to manage the content and information you have shared by your use of Facebook, or you can download this data with the "Download your data" tool from Facebook.


"Google AdWords User Lists" / "Google Dynamic Remarketing"

"Google AdWords User Lists" and "Google Dynamic Remarketing" are products of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Ireland ("Google"). Our website uses a pixel provided by Google which creates a direct connection to the Google servers. The Google server thus receives the information that you have visited our website. Google associates this information with a unique ID which is stored on your end device in the form of a cookie or is supplied by your end device ("Advertising ID" on smartphones). If you visit other websites which also use "Google AdWords User Lists" / "Google Dynamic Remarketing", this information is also linked to your unique ID. However, we are not able to see what other websites you visit.


Objection / Opt-out

You can object to the use of any or all of the retargeting tools on our website at any time. To do this, please follow the links below:

"Facebook Custom Audience" / "Facebook Pixel" opt-out

"Google AdWords User Lists" / "Google Dynamic Remarketing" Browser-Plug-in

We store one opt-out cookie with unlimited validity period per tool on your respective end device. If you use our website with several end devices, you must object to the use of retargeting tools for each end device, since we cannot allocate multiple end devices to single users. Your objection suppresses the pixel concerned, and data is not exchanged with Facebook or Google as the case may be.

You can also deactivate the playback of personalized advertising at the advertising networks themselves. You can find information about this on the Google and Facebook websites themselves, for example.


Further functions

In order to make our information more user-friendly, we have implemented additional functions. These include the Google Maps map function, with which you can plan your journey to the event site. The integration of this function also means that the standard information about you as described above is transmitted to Google.



In order to prevent the personal data about you that we have collected from being accessed and misused by unauthorized persons, we have implemented extensive technical and operational measures. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect technological advances. Our employees are bound to secrecy.


Links to other websites

If you call an external website from one of our pages (external link), the external provider may receive information via your browser about the page on our website from which you linked to the new page. The external provider is responsible for this data. Like any other internet content provider, we are not able to influence this process.



If you provide information about yourself in this function, it will only be used within the limits of your explicit consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time with proactive effect.


Further information

If you have any further questions, about the data we have stored regarding you individually for example, you are welcome to contact us. The various contact channels are listed on our Impressum page. Of course, we will satisfy your standard right to information in this context as well.
