  1. The processing of personal data for the purpose of registering for a specific event

By registering for a specific event, the data subject agrees to the processing and collecting of his/her personal data for professional purposes related to a specific event.

The data controller will have a privacy policy or other information notice, which sets out how they will hold and use the information you provide, as well as your rights in relation to that information. This policy or notice may be included on this page, or can be obtained by contacting them.

If you have any questions or requests about your personal data, these should be sent to the data controller in the first instance. Delib cannot directly deal with such enquiries as it does not control how your information is used.
