This data is processed automatically. Registration constitutes the conclusion of a civil law contract for participation. If you do not provide us with the necessary data, we will not be able to process your registration.

In addition, your data will be used for direct marketing purposes for similar events or services of the FHV, unless you object to this processing.

If the event you have selected is part of the "Blickpunkt Wirtschaft" series, we will inform you that the data you have provided will be passed on internally to the Department of Economics. You will then be asked whether you agree to receive the newsletter. As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a link to confirm your registration (double opt-in). You can cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. We will then immediately delete your data in connection with the newsletter mailing. Furthermore, we inform you that the contact data management for the newsletter is carried out by the company "The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp, (675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, Georgia 30308 USA, in short "Mailchimp", where your personal data is processed and stored.

Photo and video production: The production of image and/or video recordings of persons may also constitute a collection of personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation. 

We therefore inform you that images and/or video recordings (including audio recordings if applicable) will be made during the event and that these may also be made of your person. This will take place without you being entitled to financial compensation; the recordings may be used for FHV marketing purposes. The processing primarily serves marketing purposes by utilizing state-of-the-art media using this image and/or video material (e.g. on the homepage of FHV GmbH, in social media such as Facebook, You-Tube, etc.) and essentially ensures the competitiveness of FHV and its existence. It is only used to the extent necessary for the purpose of the company and in a comprehensible manner and in compliance with appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the data.
