Registration for events of the European Tax Adviser Federation aisbl (ETAF)

We offer you the possibility to register for events of the European Tax Adviser Federation aisbl (ETAF).


ETAF is a European umbrella organisation for 215,000 tax professionals from France, Germany, Belgium, Romania, Hungary and Austria. ETAF has its seat in Rue Montoyer 25, B-1000 Brussels.


When registering, ETAF stores and processes the information you provide (name and email address) with your consent. The legal basis for data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1) a GDPR (consent). The purpose of the data processing is the realisation and management of the event in which you would like to participate. If you register for one of ETAF’s events, the data will be stored until the event is completed. ETAF will then delete your data unless there is a legal obligation to retain it.


ETAF uses online conference tools in order to manage the online event. The tools used by ETAF are listed below. If you communicate with ETAF per video or audio conference on the Internet, your personal data will be collected and processed by ETAF and by the provider of the respective conference tool.


In doing so, the conference tools collect all the data which you provide/enter in order to use the tools (email address and/or your phone number). Furthermore, the conference tools process the duration of the conference, the start and the end of the online participation at the conference, the number of participants and other contextual information related to the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, the provider of the tool processes all technical data which are necessary to handle the online communication. This includes in particular IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device types, the operating system type and version, the client version, camera type, microphone or loudspeaker as well as the type of connection.


If content is exchanged, uploaded or in any other way made available within the tool, this content is also stored on the servers of the tool providers. Such content includes in particular cloud recordings, chat/instant messages, voicemails, uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards, and other information shared while using the service.


Please note that we do not have the full influence on the data processing operations of the used tools. Our means depend to a large extent on the corporate policy of the respective provider. For further information on the data processing by the conference tools, please refer to the data protection statements of the tools used which we have listed below this text.


The conference tools are used to communicate with prospective or existing contractual partners or to offer certain services to ETAF’s customers (Art. 6 (1) first sentence b GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves to generally simplify and accelerate the communication with ETAF or our company (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO). Insofar as a consent has been requested, the tools in question are used on the basis of this consent. The consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.


The data collected directly by ETAF via the video and conference tools will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request ETAF to delete the data, revoke your consent to store the data or the purpose for the storing of the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.


ETAF has no influence on the storage period of your data which is stored by the operators of the conference tools for their own purposes. For details on this, please contact directly the operators of the conference tools.
