Privacy note Conference

GDPR data privacy notice regarding photo, audio and video recordings in the context of the conference Jurix 2022

The conference Jurix 2022 will be held partly in hybrid format meaning that for the transmission of sound, video and image data the conference organizer will use the collaboration software Microsoft Teams, or, alternatively, in some rooms a 360° video conference system (Meeting Owl). In addition, for public relations purposes, during the event, representatives of the press and the organizer may make image and sound recordings. In this document, the organiozer informs you about the nature and purposes of their processing of personal data, the legal basis for this processing and your rights as a data subject.

When participating in the conference and workshops on site, the conference software and the video conferencing system transmit images and sound to the online participants taking part in the event remotely via the video conferencing system. At several conference venues, the conference organizer uses the “Meeting Owl” system which has a 360° field of view. The organizer will not record the events unless for public relations purposes. Private recording and distribution of sound, image and videos of the event is prohibited.

[Conference rooms equipped with an owl:]

If you do not wish to be recorded, on-site participation in this workshop is not possible. In this case, the organizers recommend participating in the event remotely, since then, guests can deactivate their camera and microphone and, optionally, choose a pseudonym. For those opting for this possibility, we have prepared a suitable on-site room (“lounge”) in the campus building of the Chair of Legal Informatics, A 5.4, room 0.12. Alternatively, you can use the Aula.

[Conference rooms without any owl equipment:]

If you do not wish to be recorded, please take a seat in the [rear, left, right or similar] area of the conference room.
