Privacv policy

The protection of your data is very important to us

Advatera offers an exchange of experience for marketing, communication and digital managers of medium and large organisations.

We only address business customers and, if possible, process data on business customers only. Inquiries from private customers will be deleted after processing the enquiry, as we do not have an offer for private customers.

You think something went wrong? We are a small company and it is true that mistakes can happen in administration. Wherever people work, errors can happen. Please contact us at privacy@advatera.com and give us some time to get in touch. We are sure that your request will be processed to your satisfaction. Thank you very much.

The processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with GDPR and Austrian legislation. Advatera has taken numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of the personal data processed by us. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) has security gaps and cannot be completely protected from access by third parties. Alternatively, you can also provide us with personal data by telephone, post or in person. You can find the contact details here.

How contacting works

We would like to point out once again that we work exclusively with business customers and therefore only business contact data is relevant for us.

For this purpose, we collect data such as your name, company name, contact data, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers as well as job role and company address after receiving your consent or on another legal basis in our contact database. Likewise, communications with you, especially e-mails, are stored on our mail server and the contact database, especially if you contact us. We do not process sensitive data (ethnic origin, political opinions, genetic and biometric data,…).

When we contact you, we segment based on your job profile and the areas of interest derived from it and your professional geographical location, as well as on past attendance at our events and meetings.

How do we use the data?

  • We will inform you when an exchange of experience or an event related to your job role takes place in your region.
  • We value your expertise. We will occasionally enquire you as a guest speaker.
  • We send out articles, studies and news as well as information about our offers.
  • We will answer your questions and inquiries.
  • We manage registrations and cancellations for our expert meetings and conferences.

We collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary to enable you to make use of our services if you give us your consent, or if we have a contractual basis and the data is necessary to fulfil our product or if we can justify a legitimate interest in processing the data. All personal data will be stored for as long as necessary for the stated purpose. Tax and legal retention periods are taken into account.

You may revoke your consent at any time and ask us to delete your personal data. The easiest way is to send us an e-mail to privacy@advatera.com. Further information on information rights can also be found below.

Disclosure of Data

Advatera does not sell or rent personal data to third parties for advertising purposes.

In the normal course of business, contractors may have access to personal data. A processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on our behalf. This is for example our internet service provider based in Germany, which provides the servers for our website, or our external accounting and tax consultancy, which supports us in accounting and tax matters. Contractors must ensure data protection-compliant processing and may of course only use the data to fulfil the purpose agreed with us.

In the event of a restructuring, merger, sale, joint venture, a transfer or sale of part or all of our business or our assets, including in connection with insolvency or similar proceedings, the data may be passed on to third parties who enter into the rights and obligations of the data protection declaration and contractual agreements.

We will inform you on your request at any time whether and which of your personal data is processed by us. You can also find out where your data is stored, i.e. which service providers we use to make our services available. Of course you can also request a deletion of your data at any time, if we are not obliged by law to keep it for a certain period of time. Please contact privacy@advatera.com for this. Information or deletion can only take place if we can clearly identify you as the person concerned, for which your assistance may be necessary. Of course you also have the right to have your data corrected if you wish so.

We process and store personal data for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or as long as this is provided for by European directives or another legislator to which we are subject. If the purpose of storage or specified deadlines no longer apply, we endeavour to block or delete personal data in a timely manner.
