All servers are hosted by ConfTool GmbH and are located in ISO 27001 certified data centers in Germany. All data is stored and processed on behalf of the GWT-TUD GmbH.

Any data provided (when entering data into a form or when creating a user account, or when submitting a proposal or when registering as participant) or data collected automatically by the IT systems when you access the ConfTool system (such as technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or the date and time when you accessed the page) are collected automatically as soon as you access and use the ConfTool system.

SSL or TLS encryption: The ConfTool installation uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the operator of this ConfTool installation. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
