Session cookies are small text files that your Internet browser saves and stores. They are deleted after your visit to our website. In addition, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you when you visit again. This recognition takes place via the stored IP address.

Although the installation of cookies can be prevented by an appropriate setting on your browser, it may then not be possible to fully utilize all the functions of this website.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data, for example, data sent to us or our web space provider (so-called server log files) by your Internet browser is recorded:

  • Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
  • Website that you are visiting
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Date and time of your access
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address

This data is anonymous and is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided. This data does not allow conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. If necessary, it is only evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our offers and our Internet presence.

Various offers require registration. If you submit a request through our website, we will need your postal address and your e-mail address. We treat this information in accordance with the applicable data protection laws. Premium Conferences GmbH undertakes to use personal data carefully and exclusively for the intended purpose.

In addition, sydney-conferencehotels.com uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information gathered through cookies about the 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 evaluate the use of the website, to generate reports on the website activity, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully utilize all the functions of our website. Furthermore, Google also offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google collects from the website you are visiting.

The add-on notifies Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) not to provide any information about the site visit to Google Analytics. Google Analytics' Google Analytics Disabling add-on does not prevent information from being passed on to us or any other web analytics services we use. For more information about installing the browser add-on, please visit this site.
It is generally recommended that you delete cookies every once in a while. Please consult the help pages of your browser for instructions on how to do this.

Google AdWords

We also use the Google advertising tool "Google AdWords" to promote our website. In this context, we use the "Conversion Tracking" analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google".

A cookie is placed on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser saves and stores on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification purposes. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are aware that you as a user clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and were forwarded to our site. The information collected using the "conversion cookies" is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These statistics show the total number of users who clicked on our ad and which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or others using "Google Adwords" for advertising purposes do not receive any information that will lead to the personal identification of the user. You can prevent the installation of the "conversion cookies" by appropriately configuring your browser, e.g. by using the browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic placement of cookies or specifically blocks only the cookies of the domain "googleadservices.com". Google’s privacy policy can be found here.

Integration of third-party services and content

Third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or images from other websites may be included on this website. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as third provider) recognize the users' IP address. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the user's browser.
The IP address is therefore required for the display of these contents. The provider makes every effort to use only relevant content for the purpose. However, the provider has no influence on third-party providers who use and store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes.

As soon as you click on an advertising banner, follow an external link and access the webpage of a third-party provider, you leave our sphere of influence. We cannot guarantee that third parties adhere to the privacy rules that we respect. For this reason, we advise you to consult the data security policies of the respective providers before using their Internet pages. If you have any questions, you should contact the third parties directly.
