Data Privacy

I acknowledge that CIAB will process (collect, use and store) my personal data. Personal data consists of my title, name, address, employer, email address, phone number and other personal data that I voluntary disclose to CIAB. It includes photographs and videos and, if I am a presenter, voice recordings taken at CIAB events. CIAB processes my personal data to pursue its legitimate interests, such as: (a) its objectives as an association; (b) to enable event registration; (c) to review, evaluate and administer promotions or other CIAB initiatives; and (d) to promote and directly market CIAB activities.

Providing my personal data is necessary so that CIAB can prepare or perform a contract with me, including providing services I have requested or to identify myself when accessing the CIAB’s website or participating in its events. I acknowledge that, if I do not provide the personal data that CIAB needs, CIAB may not be able to provide services to me.

CIAB processes my personal data only for as long as necessary for the performance of a contract it may have with me and to provide its services, or to pursue its legitimate interests.

CIAB may share photos and videos with the general public and, except for my email address and phone number, share my personal data with third parties that perform services on behalf of CIAB.  Only persons who need to will have access to personal data, such as employees and representatives of CIAB and its processors.

CIAB has its headquarters in the United States. My personal data will be processed in the United States, which has not sought or received an “adequacy” decision from the European Union. Instead, CIAB relies on waivers for specific situations as set forth in European Union legislation. In particular, CIAB collects and transfers to the United States personal data only to prepare or perform a contract with me, to provide services or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of the CIAB and in a manner that does not outweigh my rights and freedoms.

If CIAB transfers personal data to processors located in the United States, it does so on the same legal bases and for the same purposes as set forth above. CIAB endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect my personal data and to respect the conditions of this notice and my rights to protection of personal data.

I have the right to object to the processing and to request that CIAB shall no longer process my personal data unless it demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override my interests, rights, and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.  At any time, I have the right to request that CIAB cease to process my personal data for direct marketing purposes.

I have the right to access my personal data, to have it corrected (rectified) or deleted (erased), and, when technically feasible, to request the return of my personal data or to have it transferred directly to another controller. Reasonable access to my personal data will be provided at no cost.

Any questions, requests, or complaints related to this privacy notice can be addressed to CIAB at In addition, complaints can be addressed to CIAB at this address or to the appropriate data protection authority.
