For us at envis precisely Events GmbH (the company organizing push conference), transparency and privacy are important issues. This document outlines how we collect, store and process personal data, if you attend one of our events or use our website.
Registering for an event
When you register for an event such as push conference or one of our workshops, we ask you to provide us with personal information such as your name, email address and profession, as well as payment information.
We use this information for the following purposes:
- To issue your ticket to the conference and identify you as a ticket holder on entry
- To print personalized name tags at the event
- To issue an invoice
- To provide you with updates about the event you signed up for, as well as future events by us via our newsletter
- To create aggregate and anonymous statistics (e.g. the percentage of guests who identify as Interaction Designers), which we’ll use to improve our offering and market to sponsors. We will never include personally identifiable details in these statistics.
- All information you submit will be processed and stored by our ticketing partner Eventbrite and our Newsletter platform Mailchimp, as described in their privacy policies.
Participating in an event
When you attend one of our events, your participation is subject to our terms and conditions as well as our code of conduct.
We reserve the right to be shooting video including audio and taking images during the event. With your registration you grant us the right to use this material, free of charge and in perpetuity, for documentation and marketing purposes.
Participating in a feedback raffle
At some of our events, we might offer you to fill out a feedback form to help us improve our events in the future. Guests who provide feedback may be eligible to win prizes. In order to identify you and hand over your prize, we ask you to include your name on the feedback card.
If your card is drawn as one of the winners, the name you filled in will be announced from the stage.
You can also choose to submit feedback without including a name, if you wish not to participate in the raffle.
The feedback on all feedback cards will be converted into a digital format. In the process of this conversion, we strip out all personally identifiable data, including your name. We destroy the physical cards as soon their content has been digitized.
Signing up for our newsletter
You can sign up for our email newsletter either directly on our website or by registering for one of our events.
We will use the information you provide to send you the push conference newsletter to inform you about upcoming events and newly available content (like talk videos, speakers, ticketing etc.).
You can tell us to stop sending you the push conference newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you registered for an event, we will also send you timely updates about the event you are attending, such as changes to the schedule or instructions for how to get to the venue.
Submitting a proposal
When you submit a proposal (e.g. a talk, exhibition piece, breakout session or other content to present at the conference), we will use the information you enter internally to determine if your proposal is a good fit for the current conference. If you are selected, we will reach out to you directly to arrange everything else. We will not publish any of the data you enter in the proposal submission form without coordinating with you directly. We may retain any information you submit until you tell us to delete it, so that we can consider your proposal for events in the future.
We use Typeform as a platform for form handling. Any data you submit through our proposal form will be processed in accordance with their terms and conditions
