All processing of your personal data (e.g. salutation, name, address, email address, telephone number) shall be solely carried out in accordance with the provisions of the German data protection laws. This does not apply to statistical data we collect ourselves via our webpages which cannot be directly associated with yourself. Examples are statistics pertaining to which events enjoy particular popularity or how many users visit certain pages.
You have the option of setting up a password-protected user account on our webpage. Through this account you can directly access all your personal data stored in our files at any desired time. This account lets you review data on the events which you have already attended as well as your conference documentation; it also allows you to manage your address details and your newsletter settings. You herewith accept the obligation to treat your personal access data confidentially and not to hand it over to other third parties. We shall not accept any liability for the improper usage of passwords.
Apart from processing your data to handle your service requests, we also use your data to communicate with you regarding all customer-related issues and to make specific recommendations for events that may be of interest.
If you register for our newsletter, your email address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe. You have already explicitly granted the following consent, or provided your consent during the processing of your service request. You may revoke your consent with future effect at any time. If you no longer want to receive our newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time by simply sending a respective email to freseniusakademie-fresenius.de. Of course, our newsletters also contain an unsubscribe link.
As an Akademie Fresenius or Umweltakademie Fresenius customer, you will regularly receive recommendations from us via email and/or post on any events that may be relevant to you. This is aimed at providing you with information on events that may interest you based on your previous customer transactions, and/or your particular area of work and is done under strict observance of the respective legal provisions. As far as you wish to receive fewer emails or less post, respectively no longer want to receive our event recommendations, you can object at any time by sending a respective email to freseniusakademie-fresenius.de. Of course, our event recommendations also contain an unsubscribe link.
Every time you access the webpages of Akademie Fresenius or Umweltakademie Fresenius, usage data is passed on via your internet browser and then stored in server log files. These server log files contain the following data: Date and time data was retrieved, the name of the retrieved page, IP address, referrer URL (source URL), the amount of data transmitted, as well as information on which internet browser and which version is currently being used. The users' IP addresses are deleted or anonymised when they close their sessions. This anonymising process entails modifying the IP addresses to such an extent that any particulars pertaining to personal or material circumstances no longer allow conclusions to be made as to the identity of our users. We evaluate these anonymised log file records in order to optimise our offer both from a technical and content point of view, and to be able to find errors more quickly.
If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected on you through our webpage to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before retrieving our webpage.
On our Akademie Fresenius website we use photos of our own events. Occasionally, we go around taking photos at our events. These are then published anonymously on our web page. If you would like to revoke your consent, please either write to us or send an email to freseniusakademie-fresenius.de. In addition, the right to use images from the Fotolia, Stockphoto, Pixelio, Aboutpixel, Shutterstock, Stockfood and Clipdealer photo databases has also been accordingly acquired. The picture credits are listed under the imprint.
We safeguard your personal data by encrypting it before sending. This applies to the provision of all our services (e.g. registration to an event, the ordering of conference documentation), as well as to your customer login. This is done using SSL encoding (Secure Socket Layer). We have introduced technical and organisational measures to secure our webpage against loss, destruction, access, modification and the distribution of your data through unauthorised persons.
According to the German Federal Data Protection Act, you have the right to free information regarding your saved data, and, if applicable, the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. Please address your enquiry per email or post to:
