Privacy Policy

Personal Information
Your privacy is important to Peter Drucker Society Europe.

In general, you can visit us on the Internet without telling us who you are or giving us personal information. There are times when you may choose to give us personal information. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or e-mail, to correspond with you, to submit your essay, to process an order, or to provide you with a subscription or to enable your participation in online activities. You may give your credit card details to register for a Conference or to buy something from us. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else we will assume that you have his or her permission to do so.

When do we use your personal information:

  • To fulfil your requests by us or by others involved in fulfillment. To help us do this, we may share information, with others, for instance, providers of online access, our Conference Secretariat or Members Secretariat, or financial institutions, involved in fulfillment.
  • To contact you for customer satisfaction surveys, market research or in connection with certain transactions.
  • In a non-identifiable format for analysis (e.g., Click stream Data).
  • To develop our relationship if you represent a potential Peter Drucker Society Member or a Conference Partner or Sponsor (for instance to send you details about our programs).

Your Choices

  • When we collect information from you, you may tell us that you do not want it used for further contact and we will respect your wishes.
  • You may also turn off cookies in your browser.

Analysis (Analysis Cookies)

  • Our website uses Google Analytics, a service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to assess your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators and to provide further services connected to the use of the website and the use of the internet. Google may potentially also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other data. You can prevent the storage of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; furthermore, you can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: However, we must point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

    By consenting to the use of analysis cookies, at the same time you agree pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 Item a GDPR that your data may be processed in the USA. The ECJ does not confirm an appropriate data protection level for the USA that matches the EU standards (ECJ, C-311/18, Schrems II), especially since your data may be processed by the US authorities for monitoring purposes without any effective legal protection being available against such measures. More information on how Google Analytics handles user data is available in Google’s data privacy statement:

  • The legal basis for the processing of users' personal data is the consent of the person concerned in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Item f GDPR.
  • The processing of the personal data of the users enables us to analyse our users’ browsing habits. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness.
  • The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our record-keeping purposes. The evaluations are performed using aggregated, and thus no longer personal, data.
  • Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to us from there. Hence you as the user have complete control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be carried out automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that you may no longer be able to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.
