This information is provided expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

On our website, you have the option of registering for training courses/seminars via our contact form or by e-mail using a registration form. If you would like to make use of our offer, we need your personal data for the planning, coordination and implementation of the trainings / seminars as well as to be able to contact you regarding participation in the training / seminar.

We store the data obtained in this context for as long as is necessary to fulfil our legal and contractual obligations. If storage of the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, your data will be deleted, provided that no legal retention periods exist. In the case of legal retention periods, we restrict the processing. As a rule, your data will be stored for a period of 10 years due to retention periods under commercial and tax law.
