The data are processed in the context of the organisation and running of the event in accordance with legal requirements. The personal data that are processed and saved, are the same data entered into the online forms for the call for proposals and for conference registration. During the selection of proposals for the programme, names and institutions, as well as the title and description of the session and the submitted links, are shared with the programme committee.

The data will be deleted as soon as they have fulfilled the purpose for which they were collected. In this case that includes the procedures required to execute the conference and prepare the conference documentation. If the user wishes to continue to receive regular information about future conferences, their permission is required.

e. Options for refusal and deletion
