Types of data processed

Processed data includes identifying data, contact information and work position information that you provide by completing the paper or digital form, in order to participate in the Event as a buyer and benefit from the promotional activities that ITA carries out in relation to CPBO.

Said processing does not include sensitive data as identified in paragraph 1 of article 9 of the GDPR, nor it does include personal data related to criminal convictions and offences, as indicated in article 10 of the GDPR.

Purposes for the processing, legal basis, and provision of information

The personal data that you provide will be processed for the following purposes:

a)         In order to allow the Joint Controllers to meet their legal and contractual obligations and for the exercise of their rights.

The Joint Controllers will process your data within the limits and for the purpose of carrying out activities that are strictly necessary for permitting you to participate in the Event, for providing you with service information related to CPBO and for evaluating your satisfaction with respect to the Event. The legal basis of the processing is the execution of your request to participate in CPBO and the related management of the Event.

Your data will also be processed in order to meet the legal requirements that result from your participation in the Event and from subscribing to the services offered by ITA in relation to the promotion of CPBO. The legal basis for said processing is compliance with the legal requirements which are on each Joint Controller in relation to the activities carried out to ensure the Event's success.

Providing such data is optional; however, refusing to provide the data makes it impossible to execute your request to participate in the Event and subscribe to the services offered by ITA in relation to the promotion of CPBO.

b)      Purposes related to email marketing to allow the Joint Controllers to offer you similar products and/or services

If, as part of the relationship established with us, you have provided us with your email address, the Joint Controllers may use the said address to send you emails related to the future editions of the Event and/or initiatives similar to the event You subscribed to when you completed the form for the participation in the Event.
