Processing required to provide a service or fulfil a contract
In certain cases, processing your data is required for our products and services to function or for us to be able to deliver the service you have requested. For these processing activities, we are operating under the lawful basis of Performance of Contract to deliver on the terms of a contract and Legitimate Interest where the activity is necessary for our services to function. Examples, where this occurs, include activities such as taking payment, invoicing, delivery, creating event login details, website access control, match-making services and badge scanning to allow your requirement to be met at our events. This may also include sharing data with third parties.
Attending in-person or virtual events
To assess the activity of our attendees at our events
We assess how people move around and engage with our in-person or virtual events. We do this using any apps you have activated or signed up to, and where you allow your badge to be scanned by exhibitors and staff at our events. We use this information for analytics, and to improve and enhance our events. It is our legitimate interest to monitor the location and engagement of our attendees at our events.
Live Event Feature Areas such as seminars and VIP areas
Where an event has a feature area such as a seminar or theatre, you may be asked to scan your badge on entry for the purpose of health and safety, analysing attendance to improve and enhance events and share your data in some cases with the feature area partner or sponsor. When we scan your badge for entry to feature areas we use legitimate interest for the purposes prescribed above. If you do not wish your data to be shared with a sponsor or partner of a feature area, advice will be given on how to notify us of your preference at the area entrance, dependent on the format of the feature area.
