The Administrator may also process personal data on the basis of compliance with his legal obligations or the protection of his legitimate interests, where this is proportionate to the interests of the data subjects.

The processing of personal data for the purposes of direct marketing is done only on the express and free consent of the participant, which is subject to withdrawal at any time. Consent is also considered to be any active conduct by which a participant submits his / her data to the Administrator when he / she is aware of the purposes of such submission and the Data Protection Policy of the Administrator.

VI. How long we process your data

The data Administrator collects, stores and processes your personal data for the length of time it takes to run the event and fulfill the purpose of the processing, unless the law requires another time limit.
