Conditions of participation


After successful registration using our online registration option, each participant will receive corresponding e-mail confirmation. We reserve the right, in accordance with the objectives of the event, to give preferential treatment to representatives of enterprises over other groups of persons.

The participant details of the startups will be forwarded to an expert jury made up of committees from Allianz Industrie 4.0 Baden-Württemberg and the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) for assessment and selection. In the event of uncertainties, applicants will be contacted by members of the jury. Data processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) b) of the GDPR. You are required to enter the personal data that is necessary for us to prepare and conduct the event with you. Without this data, we will not be able to process your request or fulfil the contract. Without providing us with this information, it may not be possible to process your request.

We erase the data when it is no longer necessary for the purposes pursued by us and where no other legal basis applies. If the latter applies, the data shall be erased when the other legal basis no longer exists.


If you have granted consent for specific purposes, these purposes shall be determined by the content specified in said consent.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) a) of the GDPR. In cases where you are required to provide data in this regard, you shall be explicitly advised of this. Without providing us with this information, we may not be able to comply with the request requiring this consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent prior to the withdrawal thereof.

We erase the data when it is no longer required for the purposes pursued by us or if you have withdrawn consent and no other legal basis applies. If the latter applies, the data shall be erased when the other legal basis no longer exists.

External recipients may be:

  1. a) processors

External service providers employed by us for the provision of services, for example in the areas of technical infrastructure and maintenance or the provision of content relevant to agreements or contracts. These processors are carefully selected by us and undergo regular monitoring to ensure that your personal data continues to be protected. The service providers are permitted to use the data solely for the purposes specified by us.

Photos and video recordings

We explicitly point out that image and sound material in the form of photos and video recordings shall be created during our events by persons and service providers appointed or accredited by us.

Upon your participation, Allianz Industrie 4.0 is granted the right, without any special remuneration, to create image recordings on the occasion of this event and to use or allow the use of these recordings in audio-visual media (e.g. Internet Allianz Industrie 4.0 Baden-Württemberg, social media, Twitter, Facebook) and in print media (e.g. VDMA news). The image recordings will be used during the event in social media (VDMA channels of Twitter and Facebook).

The recordings are intended to document the event as such, as well as the participation of individual persons. The recordings shall be created for the purpose of reporting on the event and for press and public relations work. Startup pitches shall be filmed in particular, enabling all participants and interested companies that were unable to take part to gain an overview of the respectively presented service portfolios. For recordings outside the recorded pitches where the focus is on individual persons, participants have the right and the opportunity at all times to inform the photographer or videographer that they do not wish to be recorded. If informed, we would be happy to check whether publication can be prevented in individual cases.

Based on their participation or involvement, we assume that event participants or other persons involved have provided their consent for the creation and publication of the recordings for the purposes of communication.

By participating, the event participators declare consent to image and sound recordings as well as the use and publication of such recordings for the purpose of making public reports on the event or advertising our range of services on our websites. If a participant is registered by a third person, this person is obliged to point out these provisions to the participant they have registered.

We store the data for the time required for the purposes of processing.
