3   STORAGE AND USE OF DATA

For the purpose of simplifying the registration process for our training activities, the IP data of the subscriber is stored within the scope of cookies.

Further registration-related information, e.g. name, company, address, job title, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card number (if payment is made via credit card) are stored as well.

The data you provide are required to fulfil the contract and/or to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Without this data we cannot conclude the contract with you.

A transfer of data to third parties outside of the HOT Energy Group does not take place, with the exception of the transmission of the credit card data to the processing bank / payment service provider for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to our tax advisor to fulfil our tax obligations, and to our local representatives for the purpose of customer service.

After cancelling the registration process, the data stored with us during this process will be deleted.

In the case of a contract, all data from the contractual relationship are stored until the tax retention period (7 years) has expired. In the case of an active business relationship, the data might be stored longer than that.

We and our external, local representatives may use participant contact information (mail address, email, telephone, mobile number, fax) to provide course participants with updated information related to training courses or to inform (potential) participants regarding future training offers.

We reserve the right to film training sessions and take photos of course participants.

Furthermore, we reserve the right to use, edit or alter these photos and videos for internal and external publication online (e-mails, newsletters, social media platforms, websites of the HOT Energy Group, its affiliated companies, intranet, marketing presentations) and offline (company brochures, sales and/or product brochures, training guides and brochures, exhibition and trade fair appearances, marketing presentations, company profiles).

Data processing takes place on the basis of the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) TKG and Art. 6 (1) lit a (consent) and / or lit b (necessary for fulfillment of the contract) of the GDPR.
