Photography Notice at Events

In the following, you’ll find a detailed photography notice compliant to our obligation to inform according to Articles 13 and 14 GDPR.

At events for which we act as organizers or as cooperation partners we reserve taking pictures and creating sound recordings of speakers, participants and guests for press and public relations purposes as well as processing and distributing them, as far as individuals don’t express their dissent. We point this out in the event section on our website as well as at the event venue in a proper way.

The legal basis for this is to be found in Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in providing information about the contents of our events and drawing attention to similar events through our press and public relations work in order to evoke awareness of the contents and work of the company. This is for example done through articles on our website or in our newsletter. Furthermore, we use photos and sound recordings on our social media channels, i.e. in particular on Facebook, Twitter, XING, LinkedIn and YouTube, in order to present our company.

For public relations purposes, photos and sound recordings created during public events can be forwarded to media representatives of newspapers as well as broadcasting companies and online publishers. In addition, we reserve distributing photo and sound footage to the partner companies involved in the according event on their request for their individual reporting after the event.
