Important note to all conference registrants:
To produce your conference ticket, your personal particulars (title, first name, last name, gender, company name, company address, country, e-mail address) are passed to Messe München GmbH. Messe München GmbH uses that information to produce your conference ticket, but not for its own purposes.
If you wish to participate in this tracking program (having your electronic calling card forwarded), you can allow exhibitors at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 to scan the barcode on your ticket. The exhibitor then has access to the following information: title, first name, last name, gender, company name, company address, country, e-mail address.
 Exhibitors may also use the “retracking” procedure in order to scan visitor passes by means of equipment made available by Messe München GmbH. If you hand over your visitor pass – like a visiting card – to an exhibitor for scanning, the exhibitor will receive access to the information which you provided when registering.
 In case you agree to have Messe München GmbH use your personal particulars for this purpose and to pass on said information to exhibitors whom you allow to scan your ticket please tick the corresponding field (□ I would like to participate in the tracking program) during the on line registration.
