Our database developer is contractually obliged to adhere to all standards of data protection according to EU GDPR. Furthermore, your data will be handled exclusively by BIBA Medical and CX Symposium staff and will not be disclosed to any third parties with the exception of IT companies providing administration software or any authorities, and companies with a legitimate interest in the data for purposes of event management, such as the badging company and our AV partner handling faculty presentations for the CX Symposium, or when your data is necessary in order to distribute newspapers to your email or postal address.

Please note however, that if you have submitted the same data in the context of a different service or contract with BIBA Medical or the CX Symposium (e.g. grant application, newspaper subscription, event participation) additional data usage terms and condition may apply.

       5a. Information about how we may share your data with our exhibitors

With your consent, we will make limited registration information available to our exhibitors, limited to your name, speciality, institution and country. This is in our and our exhibitors’ legitimate business interests: it allows us to attract the most appropriate sponsors for the Symposium and to facilitate business-to-business communication between our exhibitors and our registrants.

We will never share your personal contact information with exhibitors such as your email address, phone number or postal address unless you have given active consent like in the instances detailed below.

Data sharing during the Symposium

We have partnered with klik – part of PixMob – a Canada-based company which provides wearable devices for events. All attendees will be issued with a smart badge on entry to the event, with a built-in button containing the details you provide us with during registration. The wearable device will constantly transmit data on your location and movement at the event area throughout the event. Data will only be available in the exhibition area, the foyer, gangways and meeting rooms – we do not track any private rooms such as toilets or private meeting rooms, nor are the badges tracked when you leave Olympia. klik will store the data and provide it to BIBA Medical in order that we can measure numbers in meeting rooms and the exhibition flow, and to exhibitors who pay for the lead retrieval solution. This enables exhibitors to track the engagement with the participants. By default, only aggregated data is provided to such parties, i.e. they will see that at a certain number of persons were present in a certain area, but will not know who those persons were.

At the event, you will be able to click your wearable device with the wearable device of other persons to make a connection. If you choose to do so, the wearable devices will report such connection to the platform which will add it to the relevant persons’ profiles. By default, the following profile information may be accessed by all of your connections: First name, last name and email address. You may restrict such access or permit your connections to access further information at https://app.klik.co/profile/. At the event, you may also be able to click your wearable device with the wearable device of other persons or objects for other purposes, such as to give your consent to receive marketing communication. If so, you will be informed in advance of the exact consequences of your actions. Every delegate will be given a badge with a device. Allowing your badge to be scanned is akin to handing over a business card. If you tap badges with an exhibitor, that exhibitor may contact you about their educational activities and events during CX Symposium.

You will be asked to agree to klik’s terms and conditions, and the privacy policy before the event or onsite, via email correspondence.
