In addition, participants are asked whether they have previously attended a similar event. Information on dietary requirements is requested for advance planning purposes. At the time of registration, participants are asked whether they agree or object to the publication of photographs taken during the event for public relations purposes, including publication on the Bundesbank’s website. 

In some instances, the data are passed on to other parties:
