A. WHAT IS GDPR AND WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO COMPLY?

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation and is effective
as of May 25th, 2018. GDPR replaces national privacy and security laws
that previously existed within the EU with a single, comprehensive
EU-wide law that governs the use, sharing, transfer and processing of
any personal data that originates from the EU.

Our policy is to respect all laws that apply to our business and this
includes GDPR. We also appreciate that our customers have requirements
under GDPR that are directly impacted by their use of our services. We
are committed to helping our clients stay in compliance with GDPR and
their local requirements.

As part of our commitment to GDPR compliance, we have updated our
Privacy Policy.

In addition, here are a few things that we are committed to doing to
ensure our compliance with GDPR and that of our customers:

1. We commit to follow appropriate security measures and precautions in
accordance with GDPR.

2. We ensure that employees authorized to process personal data have
committed to confidentiality.

3. We hold any sub processors that handle personal data, including our data
center partners and hosting providers to the same data management,
security, and privacy practices and standards to which we hold ourselves.

4. We will assist inquirers, as much as possible; to respond to data
subject requests regarding data privacy & GDPR.

B. WHAT’S CHANGING WITH our PRIVACY POLICY?

We have released an update to our Privacy Policy which comes into
effect starting on May 25th, 2018. Our new policy addresses new data
regulations (including GDPR). The most significant changes in the new
policy are detailed below. In a nut shell, it provides our clients more control over their information. Our policy
explains how you can make choices about your information and the
measures we’ve put in place to keep your information secure.


C. WHERE WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION, WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We have a research department who is tasked with the responsibility of
finding relevant potential participants to our events. The department
does in depth market research on LinkedIn and Google to collect data.

generate the emails of the potential participants from the Full Name

Our event invitations are sent to only individuals we believe are
relevant for the event and their attendance would be beneficial for
their career development through benchmarking and networking with other
peers from the industry. We admit that sometimes our invitations reach
few irrelevant people. However we provide the possibility to
UNSUBSCRIBE from our mailing list. Please note that by unsubscribing
you will not receive any invitations of any of our other events which
may be relevant to you.
