The processing of personal data in this case is based on the legitimate interest of the controller, in connection with the fact that the participant has applied for participation, sometimes also when the event has its own rules and regulations (e.g. a competition) the processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement with the participant. In some cases at our events we may take photos, videos, participants may then voluntarily pose for photos and this may involve, for example, publishing the photos or sending them to other participants, for the sole purpose of documenting the event, for internal SPCC purposes. Sometimes the processing of participants' data for marketing purposes may take place on the basis of consent (e.g. participants share business cards, give consent to sending emails, forward their email address). Data of speakers who agree to take on such a role is processed on the basis of legitimate interest or consent, SPCC may also process their image to promote the event.
