You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. If there is a legitimate interest, we pass on the data required to fulfill the order you have given, for example for a hotel or travel booking or CME points certification to a corresponding third party such as a hotel, tour operator and medical association. Only the data that is necessary to carry out our administration / administration task will be passed on. We will not pass on any further data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time.
