  • For a registration to events on www.converia.ethz.ch the following data is necessary: Salutation, Given name, Family name, Street, Postal code, Location, Country and Email address. If an event is liable to costs, at the majority of cases also the credit card number ist being asked for.
  • This data is being collected for the purpose of a valid registration and for the payment of the amount via credit card. When saving his data in Converia the participant agrees that the ETH saves his data.
  • The data remains in the computing centre of the ETH and is not handed out to third party. The data is protected via adequate organisational and technical measures. For the purpose of support and maintenance of the functionality the software manufacturer can get access to the system.
