5.1.  We will never sell your personal data. We will not share your personal data with any third parties without your prior consent (which you are free to withhold) except where we are required to do so by law or as set out in paragraph 4 or in paragraphs 5.2 and 5.3 below.

5.2.  We may pass your personal data to third parties who are service providers, agents and subcontractors to us for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (e.g. managing protests, calculating results and providing tracking information and analysis, media productions). We do this for the purpose of our legitimate interests in operating this event and for performing our responsibilities with you. However, we disclose only the personal data that is necessary for the third party to deliver the service and we require them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own purposes. It is possible that third parties may themselves engage others (subprocessors) to process your data. Where this is the case third parties will be required to have arrangements with their sub-processor(s) that ensure your information is kept secure and not used for their own purposes.

5.3.  We may disclose your personal data to the following recipients or categories of recipients acting on our behalf and/or as partners (processors), limited to the purpose of the execution of their obligations, which are contractually bound to adhere to an adequate level of data protection when processing your personal data:

This includes exchanging data with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

5.5.  We may internationally transfer your personal data, including to countries that are not considered providing an adequate level of data protection by the relevant regulatory bodies, for example to countries not considered by the European Commission to be providing such level. In such case, we ensure the adequate protection of your personal data by having the recipients adhere to binding contractual obligations in accordance with applicable standards approved by the relevant regulatory bodies or by relying on other safeguards, such as self-certifications, approved by the relevant regulatory bodies.

6. For how long do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data as long as you are a participant of the event and for as long afterwards as it is in the ICAs’ legitimate interest to do so in order to inform you about future events and event results, or for as long as is necessary to comply with our legal obligations. We will review your personal data every year to establish whether we are still entitled to process it. If we decide that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing your personal data except that we will retain your personal data in an archived form in order to be able to comply with future legal obligations e.g. compliance with tax requirements and exemptions, and the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
