Privacy Officer

The GPDR currently does not require us to name a privacy officer. For that reason the CEO of the company is responsible. You can contact the CEO under the address mentioned above.

Information We Collect

Personal Information is information that can be directly associated with you such as your name, email address, company, telephone number or billing information, or information about activities directly linked to you such as conference tickets that you have purchased. You agree that you will not provide us with the Personal Information of anyone other than yourself unless you first obtain the consent of the person on whose behalf you will be providing the Personal Information to us (for instance, when you purchase a conference ticket on behalf of a colleague).

Certain technology based products, such as our conference mobile applications, may may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, and performance data, the site or app store from which you downloaded the app. We also use this information to inform app design development and updates. Data collected may include, but is not limited to, system model, mobile network provider, operating system, host ID, location, IP address and other information used to collect aggregate data on app usage, downloads, sessions, and frequency of use. We use this information to manage and administer our products, services and events, and to advise you of the availability of updates and new versions, enhancing our products and services. When using our mobile applications we may collect your geo-location data in order to help provide you with conference services near you.

We provide tools to help you manage your time spent at our conferences, such as event planners via our conference mobile applications and via website based agendas. Through these tools you are able to favourite sessions, provide ratings and feedback on content. This information is then anonymised and used for the purposes of assessing the relevance and suitability of content at future events.

Third party web analytics service providers use cookies and similar technologies to make it easier for you to navigate our website and to help us manage the content on it. Most browsers allow you to remove and block cookies and similar technologies.

Our websites include buttons linking you to third party social media providers such as Twitter and Facebook. Your interactions with these third party social media providers are governed by the privacy policy of the third party that provides the service.

Occasionally we engage a third party advertising network to manage our advertising on third party sites. These advertising networks use cookies and similar technologies to collect non-personally-identifiable information about your activities on our websites and other websites in order to provide you with targeted advertising based upon your interests.

Extend of processing of personal data

We only process personal data, when it is required to serve our website, our services or other content. Personal data will only be processed when the user has agreed to it. An exception will be made if a consent could not be given in advance and the law allows processing in this case.

Deletion of data and storage duration

Personal data will be deleted or access denied, when there is no reason to store it anymore. It can still be stored, when the law requires us to.

Serving Our Websites

Description and Extend of Data Procession

We currently use the Google Analytics tool to analyse information on a macro level, such as number of site visits and location of users. We do not use such tools on a granular level to track behaviour of individual users linked to the personal information.

Logfiles containing your IP address and pages visited on our website are generated when you access our website.

We do not store log data together with other personal data of the user.

Reasons for processing this data

We use the IP address of the user to understand which pages of our websites users have visited. Information about it is stored to avoid abuse of others, find problems and improve our service in general.

Dissent and removal

We need to write log files to provide our service. There is no possibility for dissent and we cannot remove your data. If there is an urgent matter in this case, please send us a message to privacy@devoxx.co.uk

 

Newsletters and Enquiries

Description and extend of data procession

We send newsletters to our users when they have subscribed to it, and essential information to users registered to attend the events we organise. We use the services of Mailjet for this purpose.  You can read the privacy statement of Mailjet here: Link.

To send you newsletters, we will ask for your e-mail address, your first name and surname.

Links in newsletters are redirected to Mailjet, which may set tags to track interest.

Reasons for processing

Your data will be used to send newsletters to you about upcoming events we organise.

Dissent and removal

Subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled at any time. Every newsletter contains a link at the bottom that can be used for that.
