Legal basis of the processing. Mandatory or optional nature of providing data and consequences of failure to provide data
The processing for the purposes sub 1 has its legal basis in our need to fulfill the obligations assumed through the contract stipulated or to be stipulated with you (and to carry out all the actions functional to the correct and complete execution of the commitments undertaken therein) and / or to the legal obligations connected to it including facilitating the management of relations between exhibitors and visitors. Therefore, this treatment does not require your prior consent and you are also free not to provide your data, however, in this case, we will not be able to stipulate the requested contract and / or regularly provide the service requested by you or by the organization to which you belong.

The processing for the purposes sub 2 has its legal basis in our legitimate interest to organize the TECNA Event, plan and manage all the organizational activities useful to allow you to participate efficiently and effectively in the TECNA Event and to manage contacts with exhibitors of interest. In particular, the request for personal data and documents, especially for foreign guests, will make the correct understanding of the data more reliable, but above all, assurance of the reliability of the company that requires an entry visa.

Therefore the Soft spam, as described above, can lawfully take place even without your prior consent, which is therefore not necessary.
The processing for the purposes sub 4 (profiling - operated exclusively by IEG) has a legal basis in the legitimate interest of IEG to maintain and analyze a limited set of information concerning you, in order to be able to contact you more effectively if you are one of our customers or prospect. Given the limited perimeter of data used in profiling, it also takes place without your prior consent, which is therefore not necessary.

For the purposes sub 1 and 2, the data are communicated by us to: suppliers of the management and maintenance service of our IT systems, websites and databases, photographers and/or videomakers who create the video-audio materials or the related post- production, journalists and newspapers, diplomatic representations, consultants, banks (for the execution or receipt of payments related to the Event), companies entrusted with the services necessary for the organization and management of the TECNA Event (e.g. installation of fittings and equipment, publishers of paper and online catalogs, logistics, security, etc.) to staff of the Joint Controllers authorized to process the data (i.e. Communication, Travel, Sales, Marketing, etc ...), to any exhibitors of interest of the visitor in order to be able to schedule virtual or on-site meetings in fulfillment of the contractual relationship and / or to interact with them.
For the purposes sub 3 and 5, the data are communicated to: companies in charge of marketing analysis, advertising, communication and / or public relations agencies, digital and paper publishing companies that produce our advertising or promotional materials, production companies of websites or blogs, web marketing companies, subjects in charge of the design and / or maintenance of promotional materials, IT systems management and maintenance companies, websites and databases used to organize and manage Event, image agencies.
These third parties will process the data as External Managers in accordance with our written directives and under our supervision.
For all the aforementioned purposes, we also communicate the data to third-party commercial partners who participate in the creation and / or promotion of the TECNA Event, which will treat the data as Autonomous Owner (e.g. exhibitors in which interest has been expressed through specific actions on the digital platform) or joint controllers or external managers, including in particular, Swapcard Corporation with registered office at 6 rue de Paradis - Paris, which provides the digital platform of the Event). You can ask us for a list of co-owners, autonomous and responsible owners (see the "rights of the interested party" section of this information).
Transfer of data abroad
IEG communicates the data to third party recipients based outside the EU (companies controlled by the Data Controller, partners - eg. People's Republic of China, United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Hong-Kong - cloud service providers, or suppliers and customers (hereinafter the "importers ").
This data transfer takes place in the face of adequate guarantees, consisting of the prior stipulation by the third importer of a contractual agreement with us through which he, for the treatments within his competence, undertakes to comply with privacy obligations substantially equivalent to those provided. from EU legislation to ns. load (through the use of standard contractual clauses - or "CCS" - compliant at least with the text adopted by the EU Commission, except for any additions and / or changes more favorable to the interested party).
In some cases of data transfer to cloud suppliers based outside the EU, these suppliers are subject to the regulatory powers of local public authorities and in some situations, based on foreign legislation, (in the USA: the Federal Trade Commission, 'Article 702 of the FISA and the Executive Order EO 12333) the importer may be obliged to communicate the personal data transferred, in response to requests received from public authorities, to meet national security requirements (e.g. anti-terrorism) or application of local law (with consequent possible access to data, of which the importer, based on local legislation, may not have to give notice to the exporter and the interested party, who will therefore not be able to exercise the relative rights normally recognized by the GDPR).
Therefore, in the abstract, the risk cannot be excluded that in certain and exceptional situations related to the aforementioned specific requirements, the foreign public authority may process such data without applying substantially equivalent safeguards to those provided for by the GDPR to the data subject. However, the risk that the American public authority actually has an interest in applying local legislation to the transferred data appears to be reasonably negligible based on the following circumstances:
i) the performance of the exporter (IEG) in favor of the interested parties whose data the importer processes and the consequent data processing, have a limited object (the provision of exhibition services) and a limited purpose (the management of technical processes - organizational functional to the aforementioned services and the fulfillment of legal obligations); the performance does not involve the publication of personal opinions, comments or similar information, nor the making available of services or products that can be used in activities against national security;
ii) the types of personal data transferred are limited (eg personal, contact, contractual, administrative data); no particular categories of data are transferred (e.g. on political and religious opinions, biometrics); the categories of interested parties to which the data refer are limited (exhibitors, visitors, participants in events, buyers, journalists, speakers) and they concern operators belonging to product or economic categories that are not reasonably relevant with regard to national security purposes ( eg tourism, wellness, machine handling, sports activities, and so on).
Therefore, IEG believes that the CCS applied in the relationship with importers (in particular the USA) effectively guarantee protection of the rights of interested parties substantially similar to that provided for by the GDPR, regardless of the application of any additional measures to the processing in question.
The adoption of additional contractual measures by IEG towards importers (e.g. obligations to communicate public access, the right to suspend or terminate the transfer and to terminate the contract with the importer, and the like), may be introduced in at any time by the exporter following any information provided to operators by the EDPB - European Data Protection Board following the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Communities (ECJ of 17 July 2020 which declared the bilateral agreement called "Privacy Shield").
The transfer of data to the non-EU country takes place in any case also because it is necessary for the execution of i) a contract concluded between the interested party and IEG and / or pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the interested party, or ii) of a contract stipulated between IEG and another natural or legal person (e.g. our subsidiary, supplier, with headquarters outside the EU, etc.) in favor of the interested party.
ACIMAC doesn’t transfer data abroad.
