For the purpose of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) (and any other applicable UK laws, such as the UK GDPR), this policy applies to the situations where DICE is the “Data Controller” of Event Partners’ data.

3.1 DICE processes Event Partners’ data as part of entering into a contract for the Services and performing such a contract with an Event Partner who is a natural person.

3.3 We may ask for your consent in other cases where we process your data. Such consent can be revoked at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before the withdrawal.

6. DIRECT MARKETING
UK law allows us to use company emails, even where they are personalised, for direct marketing.

Such communication may include clicking an unsubscribe link in an email.

- Communications providers and web communications tools.
8. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA
8.1 Event Partners’ data may be transferred to, and stored at, destinations outside the European Economic Area (EEA) where the laws on processing personal data may be less stringent than in your country. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our agents or suppliers.
8.2 Presently personal data collected from you is stored in data centres as well as cloud networks which are located or hosted in Ireland.
8.3 When your personal data is transferred to parties located outside of the EEA we shall undertake an assessment and take appropriate measures to ensure such third party will provide adequate security of such personal data and respect your rights to privacy. These safeguards are intended to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your data wherever it may be transferred and may include:
- only transferring your personal data to countries which have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; or
- entering into specific contractual terms which have been approved by the European Commission and which give personal data the same protection as within the EEA (for example, if transferring your data to the USA).
8.4 For further information on the safeguards used, please contact us at email@example.com.
9. DATA TRANSMISSION
Although we take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely, you should be aware that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your data during its transmission.
10. DATA RETENTION
10.1 We may retain your personal data for as long as we require for the purposes for which it is processed or as is otherwise required by applicable law. If an Event Partner terminates their collaboration with us, we may continue to process that Event Partner’s data for a reasonable period and as required under applicable law, or for legitimate interests such as in relation to potential claims.
10.2 When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention or limitation periods. Once the processing of the data is no longer required, we may securely delete or anonymise your personal data.
