3. Why is my personal data being processed (designated processing purpose)
and what is the legal basis for this?
We use your contact details (name, email address) to send you invitations to our events that dovetail with your interests, and to send you relevant information (e.g. event program) by email in advance of an event. The legal basis for this follows from Art. 6 (1) clause 1 point f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in the appropriate communication of our company strategy and our business activities, which also include public events.
When you take part in an event organized by us, we process the information indicated in section 2 for the purpose of conducting the event and enabling you to take part in it. This also extends to including your name, details pertaining to your company or institution and your current professional position, as applicable, to the moderators/hosts of the event for the purpose of conducting the event. We also use this information to send you relevant material (e.g. conference proceedings) after the event. We also share your information with cooperating organizations to the extent that this is required for conducting the event and enabling you to take part in it, e.g. external guest management. The legal basis for this processing of information follows from Art. 6 (1) clause 1 point b) GDPR.
