Privacy policy


Converve respects your privacy. We want to make use of the personal identifying information that you provide to us for purposes of serving you better. Personal identifying information is information that enables us to identify you, such as your E-mail address, name, title and address. Converve uses your personal identifying information to personalize your experience on the Converve websites and to selectively send you communications that may be of interest to you, whether electronically or otherwise.


The converve platform is a webbased application owned by Converve GmbH. The content of this privacy policy applies to both participants and organisers.

 

Gathering, processing und usage of personal data

Essentially, you can visit Converve’ websites without leaving any personal data behind.
Personal data will only be used if you actively provide it (e.g. when using our website’s services, such as ticket purchasing or registration forms for events, sending a message via our website or registering as a user on our websites). Beyond such cases, no personal data will be gathered.
Usage of personal data via Converve (e.g. for the sending of a newsletter) is only possible as long as the user has explicitly approved of it. This approval can be revoked.

 

Attendee Data

The attendee data gathered for an event (e.g. during a ticket purchase or event registration) will be accessible to the event organiser. This is necessary for the performance of a contract (e.g. for managing the entry at an event). The event host can determine whether certain participant data are displayed on a publicly accessible attendee list. As an attendee, you are able to remove your details from the attendee list or to contact the event organiser and Converve with regard to this matter.

Use of Google Analytics

In order to help us understand how visitors engage with our website, we use the Google Analytics web analysis tool provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses a so-called cookie (text files) saved on your computer to track visitor interactions. The information (including your IP address) generated by the cookie about your interaction with this site is sent to a Google server located in the U.S. and stored there. To this end, we use an “_anonymizeIp()” script which ensures that Google immediately anonymises your IP address after geolocation. We have also concluded a data processing agreement with Google pursuant to Section 11 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile visitor interaction reports for website operators, and to render additional online and website-related services. Google may also forward this information to third parties if legally required to do so or if said third parties process this information on Google’s behalf. Google will not link your IP address to any other Google data. You are at liberty to adjust your browser settings to prevent the installation of cookies. Please note, however, that you may then be unable to use all of the features provided by our website to their full extent. Google also provides deactivation tools for a number of browsers that prevent your interaction with the website from being collected and analysed.
