Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO.

Contact form 
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request).

Depending on the event, the organizer may request further information relevant to the event visit (such as date of birth, gender or license plate number) as part of the ticket purchase.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Browser plugin
You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en  .

Outsourced data processing
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Facebook Pixel
Our website measures conversions using visitor action pixels from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). These allow the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they click on a Facebook ad to reach the provider's website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimization. The data collected is anonymous to us as operators of this website and we cannot use it to draw any conclusions about our users' identities. However, the data are stored and processed by Facebook, which may make a connection to your Facebook profile and which may use the data for its own advertising purposes, as stipulated in the  Facebook privacy policy  . This will allow Facebook to display ads both on Facebook and on third-party sites. We have no control over how this data is used.

Check out Facebook's privacy policy to learn more about protecting your privacy:  https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/  .

You can also deactivate the custom audiences remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section at  https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen  . You will first need to log into Facebook.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can opt out of usage-based advertising from Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance:  http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/  .


7. Newsletter

Newsletter data
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

By subscribing to our newsletter you confirm in the future to be informed about events of gamescomCamp and partner events. If you receive information about current or future events from our company without having previously registered on our website for advertising services, this is done with your ticket purchaser data specified in a ticket purchase to carry out pre-contractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO and / or on the basis of a balance of interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The starting point for the decision to make a decision is Recital 47 (ErwGr.) DSGVO.

In our conducted balance of interests, we come to the assessment, since the advertised content is exclusively follow-up events of the same series of events (for which tickets have already been purchased), that a reasonable expectation of the ticket purchaser is considered to stay informed about current and future events. A comprehensive right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR, to which we expressly refer when purchasing tickets and in the privacy policy, is also available at all times. Please send an email to datenschutz@gamescomcamp.com or follow the link in the footer of each newsletter. According to Art. 21 (3) GDPR, the advertising contradiction means that personal data will no longer be processed, even after weighing the interests.

Welcome to the gamescomCamp!
Please find all info regarding the gamesomCamp here. If you have any further questions please contact us.

The gamescomCamp – A peaceful spot in contrast to the hectic fairground

The gamescomCamp isn’t only a convenient and inexpensive place to sleep for visitors of the gamescom. It’s also Europe’s largest camping for gaming fans, a meeting point for like-minded people to meet in real life. In walking distance from the fairground Kölnmesse, the Jugendpark is located directly at the Rhine River on a promontory and with it’s lush green lawn and old trees it’s the ideal natural reservoir to cool down from the sometimes hectic day-to-day at the fair. Whether you prefer to hang out at the camp fire, the free wifi tent, or at billard in the cafe: there’s something to do for everyone.

In 2016 we expect around 3500 gamers, that stay for up to 10.000 overnight stays, from all over the world in the time between Aug 20th-26nd. The concept of the camp is consequently optimizied to fit the guests needs for relaxation and leisure. The camp is a peaceful spot in contrast to the hectic fairground. The personal contact is in the spotlight here and the gamescomCamp team is fully integrated in the leisure acivities of the gaming community.

Hardfacts:

– 3500 gaming fans from different countries stay for up to 10.000 overnight stays
– takes place for the 9th time at Jugendpark Cologne on over 20.000sqm
– Overnight stays in own tent or in supplied tent possible
– open from Tuesday Aug 20th until Monday August 26nd
– various acitivities on a daily basis after the fairground is closed
– official partner of Koelnmesse and BIU

Info on reporting on the ground and interviews

We only allow broadcasting and interviews from Thursday Aug 6th und Saturday August 8th when the camp is filled with life. 95% of the gaming fans are at the fair during daytime, so we suggest to either come in the morning between 8-10h or in the afternoon from 17h. The best vibe is during sunset until 23h. In the past we had some bad experiences with some media that portrayed the gaming community in a unfair and false way. Therefore we only allow interviews and broadcasting with a strict agreement in advance and only in company of a gamescomCamp team member. Feel free to get in touch with us and please provide the following info: contact person, concept, type of media/publication.

Info on media cooperation

We are open for all different kinds of media cooperations. If you want to write about our camp or want to get in touch with us about anything else, feel free to contact us!
