No transfers are possible after this time, and we cannot change any names at registration.

These photos and/or videos will then be shared on various on- and offline channels. If you have inquiries as to how this material will be used, please contact us.

By filling out a ticket order, you provide us with data which we will treat confidentially at any given time and will not pass on to third parties outside of TED and TEDxTUM (exceptions COVID-19 Terms).

With buying a ticket for TEDxTUM and attending the event, you also agree that we can pass on your email address to TED. TED will only use your address to send you one email to get your feedback about our event. For us, it is important for our next licence that TED gets this feedback, but even more, this feedback is important for us to be able to improve our event in the next year. We hope you will participate in this survey and help us to keep improving TEDxTUM. However, if you don’t want your email address passed on to TED, you can decline this by sending an email to data@tedxtum.com.
