INFOline Scalable Central Measuring System (SCZM)

Our website uses the measurement method ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH (www.infonline.de/en/) to determine statistical parameters of the use of our offers. The aim of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits on our website, the number of website visitors, and their surfing behavior - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure
- and thereby to obtain market-wide comparable values.

For all digital offers made by members of the Informationgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - www.ivw.eu/englische-version) or the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF - www.agof.de/?lang=en), the usage statistics are regularly published by AGOF and the Media-Analyse e.V. (agma - www.agma-mmc.de) working group and published with the performance value "Unique User" and by IVW with the performance values "Page Impression" and "Visits". These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

Legal Basis for Processing:

The measurement by INFOnline GmbH using the SZMnG measurement method is carried out with legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

The purpose of the processing of personal data is the compilation of statistics and the creation of user categories. The statistics serve as an enabler to trace and document the use of our offer. The user categories form the basis for an interest-based adjustment of advertising media and/or advertising measures. For the marketing of this website a measurement, which guarantees a comparability to other market participants, is indispensable. Our legitimate interest arises from the economic usability of the findings from the statistics and user categories as well as the market value of our website, also in direct comparison with third-party websites, which can be determined on the basis of the statistics.

In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymous data available to INFOnline, AGOF, and IVW for market research purposes (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymized data available to INFOnline for the further development and provision of appropriate advertising material.

Type of Data:

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which is personal data according to the EU GDPR:

• IP address: On the internet, every device needs a unique address to transmit data, the so- called IP address. At least a short-term storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the operating principle of the internet. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and are only processed further in anonymized form. No storage or further processing of the non-shortened IP addresses takes place.

• A randomly generated client identifier: The range processing uses either a cookie with the identification "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object", or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser for the recognition of computer systems. This identification is unique for a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible if you call up other websites that also
use the measurement procedure ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH. The cookie's validity is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Use of the Data:

The measurement method of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, determines usage data. This is done in order to collect the performance values for page impressions, visits, and clients and to form further key figures (e.g., qualified clients). In addition, the measured data are used as follows:

• A so-called geolocalization, i.e., the assignment of a web page view to the location of the view, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information, which is obtained in this way, be used to draw conclusions about the specific location of a user.

• The usage data of a technical client (e.g., a browser on a device) is combined across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical estimation of the users age and gender and is passed on to the AGOF service providers for further range processing. Within the framework of the AGOF study, social characteristics are technically estimated on the basis of a random sample, which can be assigned to the following categories: Age, gender, nationality, professional activity, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, internet use, online interests, place of use, type of user.

Data Storage Time:

INFOnline GmbH does not store the complete IP address. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data and the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can object under the following link: optout.ioam.de. In order to guarantee an exclusion from the measurement, it is technically necessary to set a cookie. If you delete the cookies in your browser, it is necessary to repeat the opt- out process using the above link.

The subject person has the right to file a complaint with a data protection authority.

You can find further information on data protection in the measurement procedure on the website of INFOnline GmbH (www.infonline.de/en/) which operates the measurement procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (www.agof.de/datenschutz-allgemein/?lang=en), and the data protection website of IVW (www.ivw.eu/englische-version).

and other such events (as at September 2009)

§ 1 Scope of application

The following general terms and conditions of business regulate the contractual relationship between participants in seminars, workshops, congresses, conventions, conferences and other such events [hereinafter referred to as "event"] and WEKA FACHMEDIEN GmbH [hereinafter referred to as "organizer"]. Participation in events is ruled solely by the following terms and conditions of business. Terms and conditions proposed by the customer, other than these, will not be recognized by the organizer, that is unless the latter has expressly confirmed their application in writing.

§ 2 Registration, confirmation of registration

Registration for events is possible on the internet, by letter, fax or e-mail. A registration becomes legally binding through a written online or offline confirmation of registration on the part of the organizer. A registration becomes binding for the participant, recognizing the terms and conditions stated here, upon its receipt by the organizer. Should events have limited capacity for participants, registrations will be ordered by their date of receipt.

§ 3 Services rendered

The registration fee for an event and the services included in the fee are shown in the event programs. The registration fee is in euros per person and event plus value-added tax.

The organizer reserves the right to substitute other speakers for those announced, and to make necessary amendments to the program while maintaining the overall character of an event. The organizer reserves the right to alter the date and location of an event for due cause.

Should it not be possible to conduct an event for reasons of force majeure (strike, lockout, business disruptions, etc), because of the cancellation of at least one booked part of an event, because of disturbance at the location of an event or because of an inadequate number of participants, the participant will be informed immediately. In such cases the ready paid registration fee will be refunded or a voucher issued for another event staged by the organizer. Further claims, e.g. for the reimbursement of traveling expenses, cost of overnight accommodation and non-productive time, are excluded, that is unless they stem from willful or grossly negligent actions on the part of employees of the organizer or other persons assisting in the performance of their obligations.

Travel to and from an event and overnight accommodation are to be organized, booked and paid for by the participant.

§ 4 Due date and payment, default, compensation

The registration fee is due for payment, in full and with no deductions, within ten (10) days of the date of the invoice. If the participant is in default of payment, the organizer is entitled to demand a late fee per annum of 5% above the prime landing rate issued by the European Central Bank. Should the organizer verifiably suffer higher damages through late payment, they are entitled to claim for them. Payment is made on account. The invoice must be paid before the commencement of an event. There is no general right to participation.

§ 5 Cancellation

Upon cancellation of participation up to twenty-one (21) days before the commencement of an event the organizer will charge an administrative fee of fifty (50) euros for one-day events or one hundred (100) euros for events of several days (all prices plus value-added tax). The entire registration fee is due upon later cancellation or non-appearance. A substitute participant can be named at any time without extra cost. Cancellation is to be communicated in writing (to WEKA FACHMEDIEN GmbH, Dept. Events, Richard-Reitzner-Allee 2, 85540 Haar, Germany, info@embedded-world.eu), and is not effective until confirmed in writing by the organizer.

§ 6 Copyright

The printed and electronic material of an event is protected by copyright. Said material may not be reproduced, passed on to others or used in any other way without the express written approval of the organizer and the particular author. The organizer assumes no responsibility or liability of any kind for any incorrectness in the content of papers, presentations and documentation.

The organizer is entitled to have photographs, film and sound recordings produced of an event, and to use them as advertising or for press releases without requiring the approval of a participant. This also applies to recordings produced by the press or television direct with the approval of the organizer. Photography, film and sound recordings require the express approval of the organizer.

§ 7 Limitations of liability

In as much as events take place in the rooms and on the premises of third parties, the organizer cannot be held liable by a participant for accidents, loss of or damage to property, that is unless the claim results from willful or grossly negligent actions on the part of employees of the organizer or other persons assisting in the performance of their obligations.

§ 8 Court of jurisdiction

The court of jurisdiction is the place of business of the organizer if the customer is a merchant in the sense of the German Commercial Code, a legal person under public law or a special fund under public law. The same applies in as much as the customer, upon taking legal action, has a place of business or habitual residence in the Federal Republic of Germany.

§ 9 Severability clause

Should the provisions for participation be or become unenforceable, in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions as well as the contract shall remain unaffected. In such a case the parties to the agreement shall endeavor to replace the unenforceable or inadequate provision by one that best reflects the economic purpose of the parties to the agreement.
