Empowering you through knowledge sharing.

Privacy policy

Deutsche Version

Advatera offers knowledge sharing for marketing, communication and digital managers of medium and large organisations in the form of workshops, knowledge-sharing meetings and conferences.

We only address business customers and, where 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 yes, mistakes 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 so 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. You can find our contact details here.

How we get in touch with you

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 like legitimate interest 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 this data?

  • We will inform you when a knowledge sharing meeting or an event related to your job role takes place in your region or based on your areas of interest.
  • 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 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 email to privacy@advatera.com. Further information on information rights can also be found below.
