1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals regarding the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, otherwise known as the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the GDPR) sets out the legal framework applicable to the processing of personal data.
The GDPR strengthens the rights and obligations of data controllers, data processors, data subjects and data recipients.
Subsequently, and to implement the changes of the RGPD, the law n°78-17 of 6 January 1978 known as the Data Protection Act was amended by the law n°2018-493 of 20 June 2018 by the ordinance n°2018-1125 of 12 December 2018 on data protection.
The regulations applicable to the protection of personal data thus include the following texts:
- the RGPD
- the French Data Protection Act (Loi Informatique et Libertés), as updated by the aforementioned texts.
- the recommendations of the CNIL.
Article 12 of the RGPD requires that data subjects be informed of their rights in a concise, transparent, understandable, and easily accessible manner.
Partners are understood to be companies or other entities, public or private, which participate in the event as exhibitor, stand, dedicated space, conference, advertiser, etc.
The purpose of this policy is to meet the obligation to provide information on the processing of personal data of partners.
1.3. GENERAL PRINCIPLES
No processing shall be carried out on your data if it does not relate to personal data collected by or for its services or processed in connection with its services and if it does not comply with the general principles of the GDPR.
Any new processing, modification or deletion of existing processing will be made known to the partners' contact persons by means of an amendment to this policy.

Once the time limits have expired, the data are either deleted or kept after being anonymised, particularly for statistical purposes. They may be kept in the event of pre-litigation and litigation.

They may also request a copy of their members' data being processed.
However, in the event of a request for additional copies, the organisers may be required to bear the cost of the new copy.
If requests from organisers are made electronically, the information requested will be provided in a commonly used electronic form, unless otherwise requested.
The organisers are informed that this right of access may not relate to confidential information or data or to information which may not be disclosed by law.
The right of access must not be exercised in an abusive manner, i.e., on a regular basis with the sole aim of destabilising the proper performance of our services.

The organisers may only invoke the right to erasure of their staff data in the following cases:
