How to ensure to take sufficient steps to safeguard the privacy of your data subject

Points to be mentioned when invites sign up for workshops:

  • why collected, types of data, who shared with (we probably say anonymous form only). Your data only comes from what you decide to provide to us. You will never be affected by this data except as given here.
  • my own invention but likely matches with our philosophy: right to register anonymously.
  • how long stored (x months after workshop, x years, 5 years?)
  • if you believe something is wrong, let us know.
  • if you want to be removed from announcement list, let us know. The workshop registration can be canceled before and removed, otherwise we keep it for survey.
  • we always keep affiliations and academic position long term for reporting
  • right to lodge complaint with supervisory authority (way too complex for us, but OK)
  • if you want access to your data or to be removed, email us from the address you have used for registration (also a bit complex for us, but OK)
  • when attending a workshop, we use external services and guide you to register for accounts in them. We don't control this data, and this is not required to take part in the workshop.

Data currently collected:

  • registering for workshops
  • submitting email to be notified of upcoming workshops near you
  • info required to send certificates
  • post-workshop survey
