DATA PROTECTION & SHARING OF CONTACT DETAILS

The protection of your data and the observance of your right of informational self-determination with regard to the collection, processing and use of your personal data are important to us.
ITOC EDUCATION Workshop will collect and store all personal data for the preparation and execution of the ITOC EDUCATION Workshop – Naples, Germany, November 26 – 27, 2018.
In order to facilitate border entry and visa applications, the ITOC EDUCATION Workshop will share contact details of concerned delegates with German immigration authorities upon request and if necessary.
ITOC EDUCATION Workshop periodically performs e-mailings to delegates on behalf of third parties regarding activities at the conference or other communications, which may be of interest. Email contact details of delegates will not be passed on to third parties. Participants may opt out of these e-mailings at any time. This will not affect official correspondence from the conference secretariat.

FULFILLMENT & JURISDICTION

The terms of this contract shall be fulfilled in Innsbruck, Austria and, in the event of any legal claims arising from either party, Vienna, Austria shall be the sole court of jurisdiction.

VISA REQUIREMENTS

It is the sole responsibility of the delegate to take care of his/her visa requirements. Delegates who require an entry visa must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Delegates should contact the nearest German embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications.
Note: German embassies and consulates-general are independent decision-making agencies for visas, sometimes after specific checks have been made with other E.U. countries. You cannot appeal against the rejection of a visa application, neither can ITOC EDUCATION Workshop intervene on your behalf in case of a rejection or to speed up the procedure.

Delegate registration details will be shared with the German immigration authorities to assist in the immigration process. However, the conference organisers and/or the ITOC EDUCATION Workshop Registration Department will not directly contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants.

The registration fee minus a handling fee of EUR 25.– will be refunded after the conference if the visa was applied for in time and proof is shown that a visa could not be granted even though all requested documents were submitted. Refund requests must be made in writing and sent to the ITOC EDUCATION Workshop Registration Department, by email, no later than November 15, 2018, the date after which requests for such refunds cannot be taken into consideration.
